Alyssa Milano over the weekend seemed to call on her Twitter followers to remove President Donald Trump from office with the power of yoga.
Milano, a TV actress turned feminist activist, announced Saturday that she would start chanting for seven minutes a day with the goal of “manifesting a change-of-guard in Washington.” She said her mantra would be: “Believe in believing. The impossible is possible.”
“JOIN ME,” he urged her 3.7 million Twitter followers. “We’re stronger together.”
On Sunday, Milano clarified that she had not yet commenced chanting Trump out of office. But she promised to start Monday, and offered specific instructions on how fans could support her.
“Upon waking, lay in shavasana (look it up), set your alarm for 7 minutes,” she said, referring to the “corpse pose” in yoga, which basically involves the practitioner lying motionless on their back.
After uttering the supposedly reality altering mantra, she advised adding: “We’d like to create a changing of the guard.”
This is what I’m going to do starting tomorrow morning. JOIN ME.
Upon waking, lay in shavasana (look it up), set your alarm for 7 minutes.
Say this mantra: Believe in believing. The impossible is possible.
And then out loud say, “we’d like to create a changing of the guard.
Milano did not name Trump or specify what a “change of the guard” would look like. But she has been a vocal critic of the president, and her call for chanting came after lawmakers left Washington for holiday break on Friday with no agreement over how they will handle the Senate trial to consider his impeachment charges in January.
Trump stands little chance of being convicted and removed from office by the Republican-controlled Senate, which will weigh the two impeachment charges that were passed on Wednesday by the Democratic-led House of Representatives. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not yet sent the impeachment package to the Senate, a bid to increase pressure on Republicans in the upper chamber.
Alyssa Milano and the power of yoga
Milano, who launched the #MeToo movement with a tweet in 2017, was widely ridiculed for her latest attempt to repeat that feat of progressive organizing.
Fellow actress and conservative influencer Mindy Robinsonjoked that Milano seemed to have confused “Charmed,” the WB show about sister witches in which she once starred, with reality.
Holy hell, I think Alyssa is actually starting to think “Charmed” was real. The TDS has become terminal, folks.
Milano has previouslyspoken abouthow yoga and meditation help her cope with anxiety, including regarding the threat of gun violence. Shehas said thather peace of mind is also enhanced by keeping two guns at home.
