On Thursday, President Donald Trump announced he was about to sign the $867-billion farm bill into law by sharing a throwback video referencing his past as a TV star.
In his tweet, Trump included a video from the 2005 Emmy Awards in which the former “Apprentice” host was joined by “Will & Grace” star Megan Mullally for a musical performance of the “Green Acres” theme.
In honour of the beloved 1960s sitcom about a wealthy Manhattan couple who move to a farm, Trump was attired in denim overalls and straw hat while holding a pitchfork, with Mullally costumed as her posh “W&G” character, Karen Walker.
“That was from the Emmy’s. I sang ‘Green Acres’ and received a very nice award that night,” the president explained after signing the bill, reports NBC News. It’s unclear what award Trump is referring to, however, as “The Apprentice” received eight Emmy nominations between 2004 and 2006, but never actually won an Emmy.
After Trump’s tweet, Mullally — who, unlike her character on “Will & Grace”, is no fan of the president — took to Twitter to share her embarrassment, first writing “omg” and then offering a second tweet.
“If you guys need me, i’ll be in a hole in the ground,” she wrote, adding some appropriate emojis.
Among the many Twitter users to respond was “Hollywood Game Night” host Jane Lynch, who offered Mullally her support by noting that her “lean away and out from him” during the song “was legend.”
TV viewers will be seeing more of Mullally when she hosts the Screen Actors Guild Awards, airing on Sunday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m. on Global.
By the way, this isn’t the first time that Mullally’s duet with Trump has come back to haunt her; check out what she had to say about it during a 2016 appearance on “Conan”:
