Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren wasn’t too thrilled with Alyssa Milano’s live coverage from the Kavanaugh hearing Thursday, tweeting out her displeasure — seemingly unprompted — and making an impromptu offer to meet her at Politicon.”
“@Alyssa_Milano you’re such a joke. I would love to call you out on your sleazy crap at @Politicon,” she said.

The tweet is not a reply to anything Milano said on the platform so it’s unclear what exactly the actress said to set Lahren off. A rep for her at Fox News did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.
Milano, however, might have upset the Fox News firebrand by attending the Kavanaugh hearing on Thursday and provide the world with live coverage and commentary of the proceedings.
This post, where Dianne Feinstein can be heard questioning a defensive Kavanaugh racked up more than 37,000 retweets and has now been viewed more than 2.4 million times.
“I will say this,” said Milano. “If a woman were to yell, interrupt and cry while being questioned, people would call her unhinged or say she had a meltdown.”

Like most of America, Milano and Lahren spent Thursday battling over the outcome of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing of Kavanaugh. The federal judge’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court was thrown into turmoil after three women came forward over the past two weeks to accuse the judge of various acts of sexual misconduct against them while drunk at parties in the early 1980s.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 30 years ago, offered emotional testimony to the committee. Hours later, Kavanaugh himself appeared to defiantly rebut the allegations.
Both choked up at various points during the proceedings, but after more than nine hours of testimony, there was little new factual information added to the record.
