Melania Trump's White House Portrait Is Making Alyssa Milano Mad, Here's Why

First lady Melania Trump's first official White House portrait was released last week, and people are lining up on social media to comment on it. Naturally, they’re lining up on opposite sides of the political aisle, with conservatives mostly loving the picture and liberals mostly hating it. Even celebrities have been weighing in. One liberal actress who is very politically active on her Twitter feed slammed Mrs. Trump for her jewelry.

One small detail in Melania's portrait seems to have overshadowed the photo itself: her choice of accessories. The billionaire's wife decided to wear an extravagant 15-karat diamond ring that her husband bought her. The ring reportedly cost $4.7 million, and it’s been source of a flood of criticism.

"You look beautiful but you could feed many of the impoverished in our country with your rings," said the former 'Charmed' and 'Who's the Boss?' star.

According to Muzul.com, Milano herself is worth nearly $50 million, so she apparently has no problem with wealth. She does, however, have some serious problems with President Donald Trump, and takes every opportunity to criticize him and Republicans in general. It’s a running theme on her Twitter page.

When people complain about a celebrity living in the Hollywood bubble having no right to talk about politics, Milano responded, "Those that tell me not to tweet politics because I'm an uninformed celebrity are the same people that voted for... an uninformed celebrity."

Mrs. Trump got a lot of flak for wearing her expensive, ostentatious engagement ring, and it wasn't just celebrities who complained.

"Really you had wear that ring?" asked one person.

"Sell the ring, save Meals on Wheels," Tweeted another.

Not everyone took the opportunity to spew hate at the former Slovenian model. There were a few who did come to the first lady's defense, though. Stefano Gabbana tweeted 'BEAUTIFUL' in response to the portrait, and told people who criticized it to 'go to hell'.
