Hollywood actress and outspoken liberal Alyssa Milano attempted to bash President Donald Trump in a Twitter rant about tax day, but instead managed to mangle key facts about Republican tax cuts.
"Now that Tax Day is almost here, and Americans are seeing for themselves who the Republican Party really cares about," Milano tweeted, adding a list of points about the federal tax filing deadline.

But, as the New York Times reports, Americans' perceptions of whether they got a tax cut does not match with the reality of whether they got a tax cut. While 64.8 percent of Americans actually received a tax cut, only about 40 percent believe they got a tax cut.
The New York Times report also explains why Americans have such a low opinion about the Republican tax plan - propaganda from liberals like Milano.
"To a large degree, the gap between perception and reality on the tax cuts appears to flow from a sustained — and misleading — effort by liberal opponents of the law to brand it as a broad middle-class tax increase," the report states.
Milano drew her anti-Republican and anti-Trump conclusions from opinion divorced from reality.
"We knew the @GOP was just doing a giant favor for their corporate donors and friends," Milano said in the last tweet of her rant. "We knew it would add to an already unsustainable deficit. And we knew the middle class were an afterthought."
In 2017, Milano blamed a Trump aide for a store's holiday arrangement that she said was pro-Nazi.
