The creators of “Will & Grace” couldn’t be happier that Vice President Joe Biden singled out their show over the weekend as having a positive impact on the issue of gay marriage.
Max Mutchnick and David Kohan think the president’s position on the issue, on the other hand, needs some work. In fact, Mutchnick calls Obama’s “evolving” take on gay marriage, the president’s wiggle phrase for not supporting it, “wholly offensive.”
That isn’t stopping the duo from actively campaigning for Obama’s re-election – or from cutting Obama a check as needed.
Co-creator Max Mutchnick said they were “absolutely thrilled when he referenced the show,” while making clear they they “never made the show to have a political and social impact,” but to entertain….
Although they will be among the event chairs at an LGBT fundraiser for Obama in Los Angeles on June 6 — Mutchnick sent a check on Monday — he said that the President “needs to catch up with his vice president in terms of his views.”
I have always thought that his language, where he has stated that his views are ‘evolving,’ I personally find that wholly offensive,” Mutchnick said. “I can’t imagine what it would be like to say that about other minorities in the United States. I couldn’t speak that way about other people….”
Mutchnick said the check he wrote for the campaign “was written for Joe Biden.” They also sent the Vice President a complete series homevideo set of the show.
