Donald Trump is like an invisible fifth cast member on the Will & Grace revival

  • “The president is rarely mentioned by name, but there he is nonetheless, omnipresent in the show’s action,” says Megan Garber. She adds: “This is a revival that frames itself, with extreme self-awareness, as part of ‘the resistance.’ In spirit, it is operating along the same lines as Saturday Night Live, and, increasingly, much of late-night comedy. It is trying to work, it seems, at the level of Black-ish’s ‘Lemons,’ another sitcomic treatment of the young Trump presidency. And in some ways, it earned that. The revival came about, after all, after the Will & Grace cast reunited in 2016 to encourage members of the public to vote.” ALSO: It’s the Trump jokes that are the clunkiest part of the revival.
