Liberal actress-turned-activist Alyssa Milano thought it would be wise to give President Donald Trump some advice ahead of the 2020 presidential election. It quickly turned her into the target of mockery, derision and scorn.
On Saturday, Milano posted a hate-filled tweet in which she called Trump “a disgrace and embarrassment” and further predicted that history would “not be kind” to him. Then, she told him to shut up – advice many of her critics wish she would heed herself.
November is coming. You are a disgrace and embarrassment. History will not be kind to you.
Please stop talking.

It wasn’t long until Dan Bongino caught wind of the celebrity’s caustic tweet and composed a showstopping reply aimed at putting Milano back into her lane.
November is coming. You are a disgrace and embarrassment. History will not be kind to you. “Dickie Roberts – Former Child Star” was the apex of your impact on this rock we live on. Please stop talking.

Reminding her that she is nothing more than a former child star who has been relegated to Lifetime movies and Democrat campaign arm candy likely struck a psychological blow to her seemingly delicate feelings.
This isn’t the first time Bongino has taken exception to Milano’s seemingly vapid political takes.
BizPac Review reported in February 2018 that he “unloaded on Alyssa Milano after the actress declared the NRA should be held accountable for the school shooting in Florida.”
“NRA MEMBERS, [n]o more. Not. One. More. We are screaming. No one is listening. Children are dying,” she tweeted in dramatic fashion. “NRA members, please demand safety reform and sensible #guncontrol. Put your foot down or this nightmare will never end. We need your help. Hold NRA leadership accountable.”
Bongino wasn’t pleased that Milano conflated the law-abiding gun owners that comprise the National Rifle Association’s membership with vicious criminals intent on causing harm to matter the method. He took to Twitter to fire off a rebuttal to her “ignorant and uninformed” call to arms.
“You’re so unbelievably ignorant and uninformed,” the former Secret Service agent accused. “It’s highly unlikely that you’ve taken the time to even attempt to understand why law-abiding American firearm owners are either law-abiding, or firearm owners. YOU are not helping, not one bit.”
In March 2018, the two had another similar run-in when Milano called on Bass Pro Shops, a sporting-goods store, to “stop selling weapons of war.” Naturally, this was another transparent attempt to swat at the NRA and somehow force them to hold criminals accountable for their unlawful behavior.
Bass Pro Shops must stop selling weapons of war.

In his since-deleted reply, Bongino ripped not only Milano, but her “pajama-wearing” followers who couldn’t identify the tangible differences between actual “weapons of war” and your garden-variety AR-15.
“Alyssa Milano must stop selling BS to flannel pajama wearing snowflakes who don’t know the difference between a semi-automatic firearm and Loki’s staff in the Avengers,” he retorted.
In May 2018, the former NRA-TV “We Stand” host took the left-wing loudmouth to the woodshed over her hypocrisy on guns when she was seen gallivanting around a gun control rally with armed security. Bongino played a video where, at the end, Milano was led off by private security who appeared to be armed with a handgun.
“Wha- is- is that a firearm?” Bongino asks in mock disbelief. “Is that a gun? Now listen, good for you Alyssa. You’ve got armed security! You’ve finally woken up to the fact, I guess, that firearms are tools – they’re protection tools – they can be very useful to protect you, your family, people you care about, your property, your home. I thank you for coming along to the NRA cause!”
