Actress Alyssa Milano says the task of “removing” President Donald Trump from office is up to the women of the United States.
“Trump has proven that he really can’t take the heat in the White House kitchen. But, he won’t get out of it, either. His ego won’t let him. Removing him will be up to us,” the Who’s the Boss actress wrote in an essay published in Marie Claire.
Milano says the “crushing, life-altering blow” of Trump’s election spurred women to begin “organizing the resistance.”
The actress writes:
“Most of us thought—no, assumed—that when we woke up on November 9, 2016, we’d be looking into the poised and confident face of the first female president. We stepped up! The powerful Hillary Clinton, a lifelong civil servant, politician, wife, mother, and former First Lady seemed to embody all the glorious elements of a modern leader. Instead, we arose to the sinister smirk of her opponent, the ‘dark horse.’ All we heard were our hearts drop over the deafening mic drop.”
