“Will and Grace” used its first show in more than a decade to take multiple jabs at President Trump and his administration.

Without naming him, the rebooted NBC comedy — which went off the air in 2006 after an eight-season run — kept the knocks coming Trump’s way throughout its Thursday night season premiere.

In the episode, interior designer Grace accepts a job to redecorate the Oval Office — despite disagreeing with Trump’s politics.

“Melania called me last night after one of her night terrors,” Grace’s pal and employee, Karen, played by Megan Mullally, tells her friend while describing the White House gig. “She said the hubster’s been pouting because his office is a real dump.”


While Grace, played by actress Debra Messing, is busy decorating the president’s digs, she hits Trump for his skin tone.

“Hand me that curtain swatch. I need to make sure it works with his coloring,” Grace tells Karen, before opening up a bag of neon-orange Cheetos.

Fellow title character Will, played by Eric McCormack, a gay lawyer and Grace's roommate, quips about Grace’s design job, “Redecorating for this president? What desperate fool would take that job? It’s just going to be redone in a year.”

At other points in the show Grace dubs first lady Melania Trump a “rich hostage” and ends up leaving a red Trump campaign-style cap on a chair in the Oval Office that reads: “Make America Gay Again.”

It’s not the first time the cast of the sitcom has criticized Trump.

Messing was one of the Democratic presidential nominee’s most outspoken high-profile supporters.

The premiere reportedly drew 10 million viewers — making it the most-viewed scripted show on Thursday and NBC's best new or returning comedy premiere in six years.

Many fans on social media applauded the political turn the show took in its season premiere:
