Actress Alyssa Milano took to Twitter Sunday, calling on Republican Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) to “stand up for women everywhere” and "postpone the hearing" — an apparent reference to the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. The hearings were conducted earlier this month.
Doc Thompson read the tweet from the actress on Monday’s episode of “The Morning Blaze.” The tweet stated, “I hate to make this political. But it is. And we are running out of time. This comes down to @SenatorCollins & @lisamurkowski. They must stand up for women everywhere. Please flood their twitter streams. Ask them to do the right thing for the country and #PostponeTheHearing.”

“Isn’t it inherently political?” Doc asked.
Doc also pointed out the absurdity of Milano’s tweet and suggested a tweet that said, “Postpone the nomination, Trump!” would have been more appropriate, since, as Doc noted, Kavanaugh’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing concluded more than a week ago.
What Milano was more than likely referring to is the Judiciary Committee vote, which was scheduled for Thursday.
Milano later tweeted a new hashtag to reflect that she meant vote instead of hearing in her original tweet.
