Actress Alyssa Milano came under fire on Sunday after comparing Vice President Mike Pence to the architect of the Holocaust, Heinrich Himmler, with side-by-side pictures on Twitter.
In a tweet published Saturday afternoon, Milano — who was in the television show “Who’s the Boss?” — published two pictures side-by-side: one from 1941 of Himmler surveying a Soviet Union POW camp in World War II and another photo with the vice president at the migrant holding facility in McAllen, Texas.
The actress did not write anything with the pictures save a photo credit for the picture of Pence.

Understandably, Milano comparing the vice president to one of the leading figures of the Nazi Party who orchestrated the systematic murder of 11 million people disgusted many.

You think you are clever posting edited photos side by side. This is not a real arguendnt, anyone can do that.
Tell the truth.

This is absolutely insane. Go educate yourself on the Holocaust, and the American immigration laws, @Alyssa_Milano

Shall those men waiting for processing all go wait inside your gated community for vetting then, instead?

On Friday, Pence toured the migrant holding facility in McAllen, Texas, where nearly 400 single men were being detained.
As IJR Red previously reported, the vice president blasted the claim that migrant holding facilities at the southern border were akin to concentration camps, calling the comparison “an outrage.”
