How very magnanimous of her.
“I’d like to extend an olive branch to Trump supporters. I am ready to move #ForwardTogether,” the liberal actress wrote on Twitter Tuesday. “There’s so much work to do to heal the nation. Let’s be a part of the solution and not add to the problems we face.”
She followed up with another message, saying that Americans “need a lot of humility and compassion right now. Anger and triumphalism is less helpful.”
Her message was met by a bevy of responses from liberal followers who disagreed with her offer, including one who said, “I have no olives or branches for racists & bigots. There can be no unity with those who want to see people that are different marginalized & oppressed.” The user also wrote that, “A true ally would demand they change not accept who they are.”
Milano responded that she understood the criticism and accepted it.
Milano’s offer of an olive branch comes after years of resisting the results of the 2016 election, and months of scathing attacks on President Trump and the Republican Party.
In July, Milano said that the president does not care how many people die in the pandemic. Then in September, Milano falsely accused Trump of calling the coronavirus a hoax, even though that has been debunked.
She also said that “the entire GOP should be tried for treason.”
On the night of the first debate, Milano said, “This debate is about good vs. evil.”
Despite her olive branch offer, Milano has continued to attack the president on Twitter. One day later, she wrote, “You’re not surprised that Trump pardoned Michael Flynn, are you? C’mon. He’s going to pardon all these assholes.”
