Debra Messing Calls Out Ivanka Trump During Passionate GLAAD Awards Speech (Video)

Debra Messing has some words for Ivanka Trump, who she called out during her passionate acceptance speech at the 2017 GLAAD Media Awards in New York City over the weekend.

The Will & Grace actress was honored with the Excellence in Media Award and gave a nine-minute speech in which she opened up about her thoughts on politics, social issues, and more.

“It’s not enough to simply say that women’s issues are important to you,” Ivanka said while referring to the First Daughter. “It’s time to do something. Ivanka, you can change the lives of millions of women and children just by telling your dad stories about real people who are suffering. Don’t let him separate immigrant mothers from their American-born children. Don’t let him take health care away from women who need it. Don’t allow him to make trans kids like Gavin [Grimm] fight in court for their basic human dignity.”
