Fox News has more on the facts of this disconcerting situation with a biased star being allowed at this sensitive hearing:
Alyssa Milano attended Thursday’s hearing in Capitol Hill, where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The 45-year-old actress told reporters on Capitol Hill she was attending the hearing as a guest of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. She traveled from her California home to Washington, D.C. to support Dr. Ford, who has accused the judge of sexually assaulting her in the early 1980s.
“I’m here because I feel any man’s misogyny shouldn’t supersede humanity,” the “Charmed” actress said. “…I felt like I needed to be here to show solidarity and my support to Ford for this day that surely will be incredibly difficult for her.”
Milano also explained to reporters why it was “important” for her to be at the hearing.
“It took me a very long time as a survivor to come to terms with and be public with my own abuse and assault,” she shared. “And I know how hard it is. And I know what she’s had to go through to be here and present and answer those questions.”
She continued: “And I think a lot of women throughout the country and the world understand the idea of not wanting to talk about it, wanting to make it go away, not wanting to deal with it, and putting it out of our heads and minds, so it was important for me to support her and to support survivors everywhere.”
Milano, who sat in the middle of the hearing room, said she was a guest of California Senator Dianne Feinstein.
Milano, a prominent activist for the #MeToo movement, said the 1991 confirmation hearings for now-Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas built her a foundation for understanding sexual harassment. Thomas was accused of sexual harassment by professor Anita Hill, who also testified before a Senate committee back then.
“I remember that was a horrible situation…it was so much a part of our daily discussion,” Milano said.
Milano believes Thursday’s hearing could have more impact than the 1991 hearing with Hill.
“I think we’re in a different time. I think women are standing together in solidarity, more so than we were in ’91 and I think women throughout the country are not going to let it be what it was,” she said.
I will say this…if a woman were to yell, interrupt and cry while being questioned, people would call her unhinged or say she had a melt down. pic.twitter.com/qBDuBP0QHt
