Alyssa Milano Gets Schooled After Historically Ignorant Tweet
Alyssa Milano, the starlet with TDS so bad that she has turned rabid, on a regular base, attacks Trump and his policies with an over-zealous hatred yet are, as a rule, relatively ignorant about history or politics.
Of course, her progressive followers probably don’t mind much, since the left isn’t as interested with facts as they are feelings.
When Trump nominated Amy Coney Barret to serve on the Supreme Court, Alyssa set of on a full out temper tantrum.
Milano expressed her outrage that Trump would deign to fulfill his constitutional duty and nominate a Justice as per the Constitution.
Which she clearly doesn’t know very much about.
She especially doesn’t know much about history as she declared the move on Trump’s part to be unprecedented, which is very much…not.
“Never before in our nation’s history has a Supreme Court Justice been nominated and installed while a presidential election is already underway,” she wrote.
“It defies every precedent and every expectation of a nation where the people are sovereign and the rule of law reigns,” she continued.
No sooner did she tweet out that tweets started to come back, sharing with her the total lack of historical knowledge she has.
“Except when Woodrow Wilson replaced the Chief Justice who resigned to run against him in 1916 or when Dwight Eisenhower appointed William Brennan three weeks before the 1956 election or when it happened a half dozen other times during a Presidential election year,” wrote David Schaefer on Twitter.
The Gateway Pundit notes that “Not only did Woodrow Wilson and Dwight D Eisenhower appoint SCOTUS nominees in election years but it has happened several times in US history.”
Another Twitter users offered a helpful graph to set Milano straight.
Others were far more creative:
There are times when it is nothing but a delight to watch these celebrities with their overload of TDS get knocked off their self-righteous perch, to see them be educated in a way that is very public.
At this point, I feel that many are like myself; we are sick of these ill-informed actors and actresses who think because they played a professor or doctor in a movie, they are somehow qualified to lecture the rest of us on what they see as history.
