Another ‘oopsie’ for Alyssa Milano after her cry that Grassley is sexist gets crushed

Alyssa Milano leveled a boomerang attack on Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley that hit her right back with the facts.

The actress and left wing activist called out the Iowa Republican as a sexist, referring to comments he had made about the lack of women on his committee.

The only problem for Milano was that she cited a Wall Street Journal article that essentially fact-checked her own tweet.

“It’s a lot of work – maybe they don’t want to do it. My chief of staff of 33 years tells me we’ve tried to recruit women and we couldn’t get the job done,” Grassley reportedly replied when asked why the Judiciary Committee didn’t have  more female Republicans members.

Milano chose that quote to highlight in her tweet with the caption, “F***er!”

She also used the article’s headline in her tweet: “Grassley Says Workload Discourages Women Senators From Joining Judiciary Panel.”

But what she failed to mention – if she actually read the article – was that the Senator immediately added a remark about how gender is not really a factor in recruiting members to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“We have a hard time getting men on the committee. It’s just a lot of work whether you’re a man or a woman, it doesn’t matter,” Grassley said.

She also left off the rest of the Journal’s headline which read, “Then Walks Back Remark.”

And in a real blow to Milano, who vocally opposed the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh and attended the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week, he even lauded the hard working women in the Senate.

“On average, any woman in the United States Senate, whether they’re on Judiciary or any other committee, probably works harder than the average man,” Grassley added.

While many of Milano’s social media followers swallowed the inaccurate tweet, many others called her out for the dishonesty.
