Who has time to wait for #ThrowbackThursday? Here’s an installment of WackyWednesday, in case you missed it.
No one can be all things. If you can sing like a miraclebird, you’re probably not also the greatest football player; if you’re the fastest person on the planet, it’s doubtful you’re also its best chef; if your immaculate physical appearance rakes in millions, then I’m sorry — you’re probably not also breathtakingly smart.
It’s just a statistical reality. There is balance to the Force.
However you think the distribution of strengths and weaknesses manifests itself in Hollywood actress Alyssa Milano, on the political astuteness side, she’s really, really weak.
Continuing a slew of embarrassing statements over the last year — each one making me sadder than the last — Alyssa recently used her eagle eyes to see the Make America Great Again hat for what it really is.
Take it away, weakness — courtesy of 1 month ago:
“The red MAGA hat is the new white hood. Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself.”

This is just how it seems to me: Maybe you shouldn’t internationally blurt your first thoughts upon waking. That may not be your clearest moment.
Moving on — Alyssa’s winceworthy tweet reveals she has:
- no understanding of red MAGA hats and what they represent.
- no understanding of the KKK and what they did.
- no understanding of whites.
- no understanding of boys.
- no understanding of how to understand.
Instead of tweeting her first ideas post-sleep, perhaps it’d be nice for her to speak her mind after learning about stuff.

And what’d she do, once the Covington jig was up? A great big stick-to-dumbness:
Let’s not forget—this entire event happened because a group of boys went on a school-sanctioned trip to protest against a woman’s right to her own body and reproductive healthcare. It is not debatable that bigotry was at play from the start.

Back to Alyssa’s castigation of the MAGA hat: She’s not alone.
Over the last week, we’ve learned a great deal about a hoax perpetrated by Empire actor Jussie Smollett (here, here, here, and here). He claimed two MAGA thugs attacked him, shouting racial and gay slurs and covering him with a chemical and a noose. Before that, he claimed a Trump terrorist sent him a ransom-note-style letter suggesting he be shot and hanged, also with racial and gay slurs.
Many on the Left raged, indignant. But the fact is, they were already raging. They already believed — not just before Jussie, but before Covington, too. And now that both stories are proving to have been fake news, those shouting eggheads hardboiled by the waters of untruths much older than 30 days will continue to steam, neck-deep in haughty fury. And though they may, at times — like Alyssa Milano — believe they encounter such ruminations upon first awaking, the reality is that waking up is something — I regret to say — they’re unlikely to ever do.
