Alyssa Milano—an actress who’s starred in TV masterpieces such as “Who’s the Boss,” “Mistresses” and her latest, “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later”—has been an outspoken critic of guns and the NRA. Yet in typical Hollywood elitist fashion, her message is not one of “Do what I do,” but rather of “Do what I say.” That was never more evident than when she showed up at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits to protest earlier this year and was flanked by armed security.
Following the shooting in Parkland, Fla., Milano blamed and criticized the NRA at every opportunity. Never mind all of the failures and negligence leading up to the tragedy—to Milano, it was all NRA’s fault. And Andrew Pollack finally had enough.
In early October, the father of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School victim Meadow Pollack slammed Milano’s Sept. 30 speech in Parkland and admonished her to “learn her facts before she speaks.” Pollack’s tweet concluded: “The FBI, Sheriff Israel, mental illness counselors, school administrators and failed diversionary programs are to blame. Not the NRA.”
Milano will likely be too busy tweeting or speaking to stop and actually learn anything. In the era of #MeToo, a tweet of hers from 2012 has been resurrected and gone viral. She wrote: “Bill Clinton, I love you so much. Like crazy amounts of love.” Yet when asked in a Fox News interview whether conservatives had a point in suggesting that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh be given the benefit of the doubt regarding “ugly allegations”—which were not dissimilar to the accusations against Clinton, who went on to complete his presidency—Milano didn’t bat an eye as she responded with a firm “no.”
Don’t ever change, Alyssa. Hypocrisy has never looked better on you.
