It might not be evident right now but there’s a storm brewing in Hollywood over the choice for the right Democratic candidate to oppose President Trump come this November.
The industry is truly divided about 50/50 in their support for former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders. And each of their respective supporters are aggressively attacking the opposing candidate. It is truly remarkable to witness this when you have no dog in the race.
But this Hollywood actress took the aggression even further by ripping the media for “covering up” former Vice President Joe Biden’s sexual assault allegation.
Alyssa Milano sent shockwaves on Twitter and through Hollywood when she attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders (and his supporters) and endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden amid his sexual assault allegation.
The magnitude of this endorsement is huge because Milano was one of the faces of the Me Too movement when it swept the nation in late 2017. She even went as far as to describe Sanders’ intention of staying in the race as “intellectually bankrupt.”
But it was actress and fellow Me Too victim, Rose McGowan, who went scorched Earth on Milano tweeting in response to her endorsement of Biden, “You are a fraud. This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump & Kavanaugh saying Believe Victims, you are a lie. You have always been a lie. The corrupt DNC is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. SHAME.”

Tara Reade is the person accusing Biden of sexual assault in an incident from the 1990s.
Yet, few liberals listened to her. Why do you think that is? Is it quite possibly because they only ridicule and demand resignations from Republicans accused of sexual assault? Their guy has to be innocent of this allegation, right?
Thankfully, McGowan is one of the few Hollywood actresses that truly get how the mainstream media is currently complicit in washing over this enormous story.
It started with The Intercept journalist, Glenn Greenwald, when he aptly pointed out, “not a single cable news host who has interviewed Biden has even dared ask him about these sexual assault allegations.”
McGowan responded on Twitter, “I don’t have Covid-19, but the media in USA is making me ill. The complicity machine is hard at work covering up for Creepy @joebiden. Has @abcnews asked any hard questions? Everyone knows he’ll lose, why not go hard? Why not TELL THE TRUTH.”
On Sunday, McGowan also blasted the New York Times when it pondered why the country is so distrustful of the media and she responded, “it’s because the public sees your favoritism and your utter hypocrisy. Yes, you go after the reprehensible Trump, but leave Biden accusations alone. You are the problem.”
It’s really frustrating these liberals can’t comprehend their own hypocrisy because they’re too consumed with Trump Derangement Syndrome. One Twitter account accurately pointed this out by saying, “Milano remains silent on the rape accusation against Joe Biden, after demanding we #BelieveWomen when Blasey Ford came forward against Kavanaugh.”
But it’s all crickets when it comes to their candidate. That’s convenient.
