Alyssa Milano's harsh reaction to one of her fellow actors preaching his support of President Donald Trump shows what's wrong with American society, Bill O'Reilly told Newsmax TV.

O'Reilly presented his Talking Points Memo on Tuesday's "The Wayne Allyn Root Show" and brought up Jon Voight's insistence Trump is the "greatest president since Abraham Lincoln."

Milano, a Hollywood liberal who vocally supports abortion and other left-leaning beliefs, responded by calling the 80-year-old Voight — who has won countless awards during his acting career — a "has been" and an "F-lister."

O'Reilly said Milano was out of line with her personal attack and she should have given a dissenting argument instead.

"I don't know if this was the smartest move [by Milano] because Jon Voight, at 80 years old, is still working," O'Reilly said. "He is one of the best actors on the planet. Alyssa Milano is a television actress. I'm not gonna denigrate what she's done, but surely it's not in the class of Jon Voight.

"Why the personal attacks? If Jon Voight believes that President Trump is on par with Abraham Lincoln, he has the right to that opinion without being attacked personally. Does he not?"

O'Reilly noted what the country needs is less name-calling and more debate.

"I want robust debate in America. I don't want gutter sniping, I don't want smear merchants. But I can't stop it because social media gives these people an unbelievable platform," he said.

"If Alyssa Milano wants to say, 'well I think Jon Voight's wrong and here's the list of presidents I feel are better and here's why,' I certainly would listen to that. But to call the guy a has been? At 80 years old, the guy is still at the top of his game, Jon Voight. He's an amazing actor. I hope he doesn't say anything. I hope he lets his career speak for itself.

"When you can't tolerate an opposing point of view in your life, you need to get some help."
