"Fox & Friends" hosts cheered Whoopi Goldberg on Wednesday for criticizing “Will and Grace” stars Debra Messing and Eric McCormack for insisting that a list of people who attended a Beverly Hills fundraiser for President Donald Trump should be outed so liberal Hollywood stars know who they should avoid working with.

Co-host Steve Doocy said Goldberg was “absolutely right” for comparing the idea to the Cold War-era Hollywood blacklist which named alleged communists or sympathizers.

Another of the show’s co-hosts, Ainsley Earhardt, reiterated one of Goldberg’s main arguments against such a tactic, saying “You don’t want to discriminate because of the way someone voted. This is great country. We all have different views. We can all have a great debate. We don’t have to hate one another because we don’t like who they voted for.”

The third host, Brian Kilmeade, pointed out that some conservative actors who might want to show up for the fundraiser may be worried about how it will influence their career.

“Some people out there would go ‘I don’t want someone who is going to be too politically oriented. I’m not going to show them support,’ even though guys like Robert De Niro don’t seem to care when they express their hatred for the president,” Kilmeade said. “It’s just unbelievable the way they just target people because they’re supporting not an extreme candidate, the President of the United States.
