Biden Changed His Position On Abortion Law After Lobbying From ‘Who’s The Boss?’ Star Alyssa Milano

Like all other Democrats, Joe Biden is apparently now taking his marching orders from Hollywood.

He doesn’t seem to know where he is supposed to be on this issue, so Alyssa Milano told him what to think.

The candidate was caught off guard after an NBC News story published Wednesday morning attempted to nail down where he stands on abortion policy—specifically Hyde. Symone Sanders, one of Biden’s senior advisers, confronted him, she confirmed to me Thursday night, telling Biden that he was missing how his position disproportionately affected poor women and women of color without easy access to abortion.

Alyssa Milano, the actor who’s become a major online presence on issues of women’s rights as well as a friend of the Biden team, spoke by phone Wednesday with Biden’s campaign manager, Greg Schultz, telling him that the candidate needed to change. More calls came in, more tough conversations.
