Alyssa Milano is one of the many Hollywood celebrities who think that Trump administration is not doing enough during the coronavirus crisis. The “Charmed” star took to Twitter and accused President Trump of using racist language by repeating the term “Chinese virus,” while ignoring the fact that numerous media outlets have used terms like “Chinese coronavirus” and “Chinese virus” in their own coverage.
Milano on Wednesday responded to Trump’s tweet regarding COVID19, while calling the president a “racist piece of shit.”
“I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously, and have done a very good job from the beginning, including my very early decision to close the “borders” from China – against the wishes of almost all. Many lives were saved. The Fake News new narrative is disgraceful & false,” Trump tweeted to which Milano replied with: “Stop calling it the “Chinese Virus,” you racist piece of shit.”
Trump came under fire on Tuesday after using the term “Chinese Virus,” with left-wing activists immediately labeling him “racist.” The president insisted that he was justified in branding the coronavirus pandemic as the “Chinese Virus” claiming that he is using the term because the virus originated from China.
“It’s not racist at all. No, not at all. It comes from China, that’s why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
Trump also said that he is using the term because China tried to blame the virus on US soldiers.
“I didn’t appreciate the fact that China was saying our military gave it to them. Our military did not give it to anybody,” the president said.
Several media outlets have used the very descriptor they are shellacking the president over, including CNN.
