Actress Alyssa Milano dissed fellow actor Jon Voight, calling him an “F-lister trying to stay relevant,” but the raging liberal never expected her career assessment to blow up in her face.
Voight’s offense was that he shared two videos supportive of President Trump online — in the videos, the actor said Trump “has made his every move correct,” calling him “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”
You can imagine how that went over with the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd.
Milano tried to be cute in her slam of the Oscar-winning 80-year-old actor, quoting comments tweeted in response to a Twitter Moments post about Voight’s comments.
But she didn’t fool anyone on her intentions — perhaps her recent sex strike is dulling the brain.
“Now I understand why Republicans like to discredit actors and our political views. “Stay in your lane, Jon!” “Has been!” “F-lister trying to stay relevant!” “Nobody cares what an out of touch actor thinks!” she tweeted.

As for Milano’s remarks, she’s not exactly an A-list actress. In fact, she not much of an actress at all of late, which could explain why she is more obsessed with liberal activism than with acting.
The fact that Voight is still working is a pretty remarkable feat in and of itself. And he clearly addressed the “people of the Republican party” in the first video, warning them not to “be fooled by the political left.”
Not that this dissuaded the intolerant left, given that he called on them to stand by the president.
The first video begins:
“People of the Republican party: I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy, for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I’ve said this once and I’ll say this again, that our nation has been built on the solid ground of our forefathers. And there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I’m here today to acknowledge the truth. And I’m here today to tell you, my fellow Americans, that our country …”

The second video picks up:
“… country is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our president has made his every move correct. Don’t be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth: that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America. And may God continue to guide this nation. Much love.”

Ironically, in all this emphasis on where an actor ranks, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp slammed Milano as a squawking “C-list” celebrity — her sex strike came after his state passed a heartbeat bill that effectively bans abortions after 6 weeks.
“We’re elected to do what’s right, and standing up for precious life is always the right thing to do,” Kemp said. “We are the party of freedom and opportunity. We value and protect innocent life — even though that makes C-list celebrities squawk.”
Keep in mind, 46-year-old Milano’s best work was from the 80s and early 90s in the sitcom “Who’s the Boss?”
Not the resume one might expect from someone casting aspersions on another — but then, social media was quick to remind Milano, who probably didn’t expect her tweet to evolve into an assessment of her own career.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Your acting sucks and youre an even worse activist https://t.co/3QAo6Khzy8

Says the out of touch, uninformed leftist puppet Milano.
Do you really think anyone cares what a parrot like you of the left says?
We don’t LOL

I guess you haven’t seen “Ray Donovan,” he’s awesome! I’d say he is quite relevant and in no way out of touch. Stay in your lane? That might be better advice for you.
