Alyssa Milano Pushes Claim that Praying for Trump is Like Lynching Black People
Liberal activists boosts video on Twitter making outlandish claim
Liberal actress-turned-activist Alyssa Milano boosted a video conference that compared Christians praying for President Donald Trump to the lynching of black people.
In the clip, a black pastor makes a comparison between African Americans being lynched to Christian prayers for the president.
Bishop Talbert Swan hosted the video on "The Bishop's Barbecue."
Milano also engaged in discussions with black pastors before retweeting the video from the conference.
"Let's remember that the moral majority and the Christian Evangelical right was never first and foremost about moral issues, abortion, sexuality, any of that, it was actually rooted in white supremacy," claimed activist Tim Jacob Wise.
"What do you say, what do you say to your white conservative friends, you know, who say well Mike, you know, you know, God said, you know because you know, of course, God is all in this thing with Trump, you know, that's that's the will of God and you gotta play for him, and Romans 13 says to ah, submit to governing authorities," asked Swan.

"I tell them they're full of the devil, I mean," responded Pastor Michael McBride.
"I start off with, I tell them you have been betwixt [sic] by a lie, I tell them that, you know, you are the same Christian who would sit in the Southern churches during the 1880s and the 1890s, and 1900s, early, earliest years," he said.
"Listen to the preacher preach his messages, lift your hands and pray to Jesus, and then leave the sanctuary and go lynch a black person, a black child, a black woman, a black baby in the afternoon."
At the end of the video, Milano has a short clip urging Americans to follow and support black leaders.
Last month, Milano faced more controversy after an old video resurfaced that showed her wearing makeup to darken her skin, triggering accusations of "blackface."
Milano defended the years-old parody video wherein she darkens her face to mock reality TV star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of “Jersey Shore” fame.

“The right-wing trolls are using a still from this funny or die video where a [sic] parodied Snookie from Jersey Shore,” Milano posted on Twitter.
“If you see the screen grab that they are using maybe you can shut them down with a link to the entire video.”
