I don’t know where Allyssa Milano has been the last two years but clearly she and the rest of the world are living in parallel universes.
In Milano’s universe, the media has coddled President Donald Trump, which somehow has made it easier for him to advance his agendas.
If you are struggling to pick your jaw off the floor after that statement, you’re not the only one. In an interview with former intelligence officer and now Hill.TV’s Buck Sexton, Milano’s statement prompted him to ask the obvious question: “You don’t think the media’s hostile enough to Trump?” Sexton asked.
In this video clip, Milano grapples to bring reason to outrageous statements.

Milano’s comments are very revealing of leftist strategy in reshaping the culture. She opens the interview with Sexton commenting that the media is “normalizing” Trump and his ideals.
“The media actually normalized some of what he did, and continues to normalize it instead of going. Can you believe how crazy this is? This guy wants to do this.”
It appears also in Milano’s parallel universe it’s the responsibility of the media to alter coverage of events so as to censor information that reaches the public.
When challenged by Sexton on the media’s coverage of Trump, Milano reinforced her insistence of media’s remiss behavior against the president as reported by The Hill: “Sexton noted that some in the media would probably say they have tried to “raise as many alarms as they can.”
“I would wonder if you were to have this conversation with any number of White House correspondents or major news anchors, other than at one channel that I’m sure you could guess, you would probably have a lot of folks saying they’re doing everything that they can to raise as many alarms as they can,” Sexton said.
Milano pushed back on that assertion, saying she does not think the media has done “enough.”
“I don’t think it’s enough, and I don’t think it was enough when he was campaigning,” Milano replied. “I think that we coddled this idea of a man who has been a self-proclaimed p—- grabber.”
Perhaps Milano should read this article published by The Washington Times. In March, they reported that a study by the Media Research Center concluded 90 percent of the presidents media coverage is negative. Perhaps she’ll sleep better with that knowledge.
“It has been a pattern since President Trump was inaugurated well over a year ago. Coverage of the White House on the “Big Three” broadcast networks — ABC, CBS and NBC — remains 91 percent negative, according to a new study by the Media Research Center, which has been tracking the phenomenon since Mr. Trump hit the campaign trail in 2016.”
“It was over 90 percent hostile then — and remains so now. The trend is unprecedented, according to the analysis.”
Milano really needs to do more research before she does an interview. She’s clearly wrong on this front. But it isn’t the first time she’s made outrageous comments and I’m going to guess it’s not going to be the last.
