Alyssa Milano on Trump: ‘Removing him will be up to’ women

Greg Nash

Alyssa Milano says “removing” President Trump from office will fall on women.

“Trump has proven that he really can’t take the heat in the White House kitchen,” the “Who’s the Boss?” and “Charmed” actress writes in an op-ed for Marie Claire Wednesday for International Women’s Day. “But, he won’t get out of it, either. His ego won’t let him.”

The performer — who called Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) a “really honest, cool dude” but ultimately supported Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in last year’s election — writes, “Removing [Trump] will be up to us. Despite the crushing, life-altering blow we suffered on November 8th, it’s women who are organizing the resistance.”

{mosads}Calling the commander in chief an “egomaniac” with “questionable business ethics” and “a crude moral compass,” Milano says, “I never thought I’d be nostalgic for the days when Donald Trump was nothing but an ineffectual gasbag whose sole purpose for existing was to remind me of how much I like Rosie O’Donnell, but here we are.”

Milano, a 44-year-old mother of two, writes that with the forever changed political landscape, it’s “time to step up.”

“As women, we are used to (largely under-valued) hard work and little recognition. We’re used to screaming to only be heard in a whisper. Now is out time to shine as leaders as we struggle for advancement, progress, and most importantly, equal rights.”

“Under the glare of this new administration,” says Milano, “these issues have taken on a more complicated, third dimension.”

“Feminine power is boundless,” writes Milano, a national ambassador for UNICEF. “Women can change the world. We already have … and we’re not giving up now.”
