National disgrace Debra Messing gets crushed by wounded warrior’s mom for teaching son to sit during anthem

Parenting typically isn’t a strong suit for rabid left-wing celebrities.

“Will and Grace” star Debra Messing stirred controversy with an Instagram post last week in which she said she encouraged her son to protest the national anthem during a hockey game.

The since-deleted photo showed her son holding his right hand over his heart while seated at a New York Rangers game in Madison Square Garden.

In the photo’s caption, Messing described the conversation between her and the boy.

“‘Please stand for the Star Spangled Banner.’

“Son: ‘Mom, I want to sit down in protest. Can we do that?’

“Me: ‘Yes, honey. We can do that.’

“Who’s crying? I’m not crying. #BLM (Black Lives Matter).”

The act of protest by Messing’s son was reminiscent of the widespread kneeling by NFL players who refuse to stand during the “Star-Spangled Banner” as a way of calling attention to police shootings of African-Americans.

One of the many people to fire back at the actress was Lisa Smith, whose Twitter bio describes her as the “proud mother of a wounded soldier.”

“@DebraMessing: You’re proud your son boycotted our Anthem?” Smith wrote. “I’m proud of MY son. You know why? HE can’t kneel or walk on his own. HE was wounded fighting for the very freedom that YOU spit on, yet he has NO regrets! He’s a Patriot & you’re a loser!”

Smith was lauded by other Twitter users.

Following the backlash, Messing removed the post and replaced it with a less polarizing photo from her day at the Rangers game.
