Alyssa Milano isn’t making any apologies after she compared Vice President Mike Pence to Holocaust architect Heinrich Himmler on Twitter.

The leftist actress tweeted side-by-side images of Mr. Pence and the late Nazi leader to her 3.6 million followers on Saturday.

The image of Himmler was apparently taken in 1941 when he visited a prisoner of war camp in the Soviet Union. The photo of Mr. Pence was taken on Friday when he toured the McAllen, Texas, Border Patrol facility. The comparison of the two photos was first made by California-based poet Rachel McKibbens, whose juxtaposition was later picked up by Ms. Milano.

Ms. Milano’s tweet, which has been shared more than 6,000 times, remains active and without further explanation from the “Insatiable” star. Many users criticized Ms. Milano for likening the vice president to one of the men responsible for murdering millions of Jews.
