Fresh off of the apparent failure of her pro-abortion sex strike, former child actress Alyssa Milano has sought to remain relevant in today’s political climate by tweeting an image comparing Vice President Mike Pence to Heinrich Himmler, a powerful leader in the German Nazi Party and a main architect of the Holocaust. The image features side by side images of Himmler at POW camp during World War II, and Mike Pence at an immigrant detention center in Texas during his visit last week.

While her tweet has been “liked” over 10,000 times, and “retweeted” over 4,500 times, the response Milano received for her absurd tweet appears to be mostly negative:
Funny. I don’t remember you this outraged when Obama was doing the samething under worse conditions.

You’re an idiot @Alyssa_Milano. How many Jews walked hundreds of miles to break into a concentration camp?

As being from a family where my great grandfather was the only one of his family to survive the Holocaust, I find this extremely offensive because it has already been proven that those Centers have supplies and fresh water for illegal immigrants.

Mike Pence himself has responded to the misleading media coverage of his recent visit to the migrant detention center in Texas:

While the image she tweeted shows Himmler at a POW camp, not a concentration camp, the intent of the visual Milano tweet can’t be misinterpreted. Perhaps Milano needs to be invited to visit real concentration camps. Clearly, all those years in Hollywood had a negative impact on the quality of her education.
