Ten years after ending its run, “Will & Grace” returned Monday with a brief, 9-minute update tied to the 2016 presidential campaign.

Eric McCormack and Debra Messing were back as title characters Will Truman and Grace Adler, while Megan Mullally reprised her role as boozy Karen Walker, and Sean Hayes returned as Jack McFarland. Even the show’s main set –Will’s New York apartment – was re-created for the moment.

The four stars teased the reunion Sunday on social media, while the new clip posted on YouTube today via the account “Vote Honey.”

In the scene, no surprise here: Karen tells Will and Grace that she’s voting for her pal Donald Trump (“I helped hum pick out Melania!”), who even inspired her to build a wall to keep her housekeeper, Rosario, out of the house.

Jack, meanwhile, isn’t sure who to vote for – and both Will and Grace explain why Hillary Clinton is their choice.

“She’s going to appoint justices to the Supreme Court that are going to ensure your civil rights,” Grace says. Rebuts Karen: A vote for Clinton would mean “hordes of brown people pouring over our borders from every direction… It’s one thing if you’re sitting in the audience of ‘Hamilton,’ but do you really want to see those people everywhere?”
