‘A different time’: Milano drastically changes her tune on Bill Clinton, stealthily scrubs adoring tweet

Powered by Topple

Like a big, fat sore thumb, Bill Clinton stands out amid the left’s weaponization of the #MeToo movement.

Actress/Activist Alyssa Milano, who says she was the victim of a traumatic sexual assault as a 19-year-old, has been a leading voice in protests against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanuagh and was surprisingly asked about Clinton in an appearance Thursday on CNN.

“You are a fan of Bill Clinton, anchor Chris Cuomo noted. “Should Kavanaugh receive the same benefit of the doubt?”

“No, and I don’t think Bill Clinton should have gotten that benefit of the doubt hindsight,” Milano said. “I think that as a nation, we were in a different time. I think that women were continually being silenced. And I think we gave him the benefit of the doubt and we probably should’ve investigated the allegations against him as well.”

“This is not about partisan politics to me. This is about humanity,” she continued. “Even though this process is so uncomfortable for everyone, we really have to look at it, look at where we want to be, who we want to be as a nation, and really examine this in a nonpolitical way but in a human way.”

All of which is quite a swing, given a 2012 tweet from the actress expressing undying love for Bubba — a tweet she summarily deleted before her declaration with Cuomo (Yes, it was still up a few days ago and was making the rounds).

“Bill Clinton, I love you so much. Like crazy amounts of love,” Milano tweeted.

But was her assertion that Clinton should have been investigated for a series of allegations made against him by women a call from Milano’s conscience, or was it a necessity in the face of being called out online for her hypocrisy, to include a tweet from one of Clinton’s victims.

As for investigating Clinton, Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who said she was raped by him in 1978, shared online a White House petition calling for a federal probe.


Here’s a sampling of other reactions from Milano’s remarks on CNN from Twitter:
