Any excuse to impeach President Trump is good enough for Alyssa Milano and the other members of her star-studded Impeachment Task Force (hey, Tom Arnold), but the thing that seems to have struck her from Wednesday’s hearings is that people died because Trump withheld assistance from Ukraine.
We’re old enough to remember when President Obama withheld lethal aid from Ukraine throughout his entire administration, instead sending blankets and MREs. As Sen. Rand Paul told “Meet the Press” just this Sunday, “There are always contingencies on aid. Even President Obama withheld aid. He was supposed to give lethal aid. Congress said give them $300 million in lethal aid, and he sent them blankets.”
It took until Dec. 2017 for Trump to reverse Obama’s policy, approving the sale of lethal arms to the Ukrainian government. (No one tell Milano what “lethal” means — she doesn’t like it when people die).
So maybe someone could tell Milano that Trump wasn’t the first president to withhold foreign assistance.
People died because Trump withheld assistance.
That’s it. End of story.
Trumpsters, this is disgusting.
How are you still supporting this man?!#ImpeachmentHearings

People were dying in the Ukraine bf Trump ran. Started w/the Russian takeover of the Crimea. Continued w/Russia arming separatists in the E. Ukraine. Remember Malaysian Flight 17? 298 died when their plane was shot down over Ukraine. 1000's died bc Obama sent meals & blankets.
How many people were saved when the previous administration sent blankets. I’m sure they were Kevlar or something special right ?

Assistance was never withheld, and the US isn’t the world’s daddy or piggy bank.
That’s it, end of story.

What bubble headed Alyssa doesn't understand is that Obama withheld lethal aid for YEARS, despite Congress approving it. They didn't get the Javelin missiles they asked for until 2018 when TRUMP gave them lethal aid. https://t.co/AsV8DvCHWJ

Ok, Alyssa, right now it's time to actually pay attention, instead of cherry picking sentences that fit your pre determined prejudices.

Who died? Trump gave Ukraine Military aide. Obama did not. Obama made Russia stronger by canceling Polands missile shield at their request. https://t.co/cYhkWcGJNw

Obama refused weapons to Ukrainian forces (who I helped train while in the Army) after the Russian attack.

Obama administration did nothing when Russians took Crimea, where was Milano's mouth and concern then?

Her understanding of history began in 2016. Nothing real existed before then…

Obama withheld lethal aid to Ukraine as a bribe for the Russians to stay neutral for the iran deal

Did she care about the 500,000 dead in Syria because Obama was too weak to back up his infamous red line?

The only thing that died in this whole affair was your and your pal's last shreds of dignity and credibility.
And I can prove it because someone who knows someone else said so. https://t.co/yrf5vg64pq
