Actor Jon Voight has hit back at leftist actress and activist Alyssa Milano, who called the award-winning actor an F-lister over his brand of politics.
During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Voight prayed for her and other people like her and with her mindset.
What did Milano say, anyway?
TheBlaze reported that Milano took aim at Voight over his support for President Donald Trump.
In May, Milano called Voight a “has-been” and more after viewing a video the award-winning actor made about politics.
Sharing one of Voight’s videos that featured him praising the president, Milano wrote, “Now I understand why Republicans like to discredit actors and our political views. ‘Stay in your lane, Jon!’ ‘Has been!’ ‘F-lister trying to stay relevant!’ ‘Nobody cares what an out of touch actor thinks!'”
Milano’s remarks were met with stark criticism, as she is often targeted with similar chastising from social media peers.
What did Voight say in response?
On Friday, the 80-year-old actor
appeared on “Fox & Friends,” where he addressed Milano’s remarks.
“Darling Alyssa, God bless you,” he began. “I pray God sends His light of truth on all those with no truth about the Republicans, and about our President, and may God bless America.”
“People say a lot of things,” Voight added, and pointed out that he was an entirely different person in the 1960s.
Voight later went on to voice his sympathy for the actress, and those of her ilk, over their apparent ignorance.
“We have to go through a process in order to learn the truth sometimes — I did — so I have sympathy for the people who are in ignorance … Ignorance doesn’t scare me; I was like that myself,” he said. “I just root for everyone to come to the truth.”
