On the heels of President Barack Obama‘s announcement that he supports same-sex marriage, Will and Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick reveals that Vice President Joe Biden had tested his own remarks on gay marriage earlier.
Mutchnick explained on CBS This Morning that Biden’s lengthy mention of his hit sitcom during the VP’s Meet the Press remarks was no mere coincidence:
My husband and I were at a private function two weeks prior to the Meet the Press airing. And Vice President Biden was talking to a small group and he made the reference to Will and Grace in that room and called me out at that moment.
“It says to me that this was all very choreographed,” said Mutchnick, who adds that the White House had recorded Biden’s comments. “He was testing the material out of town and then he took it to a larger house, Meet the Press.”
