(Newser) – Eighty-year-old actor Jon Voight took to Twitter on Friday night to proclaim his love of President Trump in a pair of videos that said the president's job "is not easy" as he has to fight "the left and their absurd words of destruction," though he has "made his every move correct." Further, per the Huffington Post, Voight urged viewers to not "be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president, let us stand up for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln." Newsweek reports that taking exception to Voight's point of view was Alyssa Milano, who's been vocal in the wake of recent abortion laws. In a single tweet, she advised him to "Stay in your lane, Jon!," called him a "Has been!," an "F-lister trying to stay relevant!" and advised him that "Nobody cares what an out of touch actor thinks!"
