(Video) Debra Messing addresses Ivanka Trump, “one Jewish mother to another”

Debra Messing, star of the soon-returning sitcom ‘Will & Grace,’ was awarded GLAAD’s Excellence in Media Award in New York City Saturday. As you can imagine from a GLAAD award show, the politics were decidedly liberal, though Messing did thank Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley for her denunciation of Chechnya’s anti-LGBT laws. However, she spent much more of her time on stage criticizing President Donald Trump and imploring his daughter Ivanka to more clearly advocate for civil rights, “one Jewish mother to another.” Watch the whole speech above, but the Ivanka address starts around the five-minute mark.
