Alyssa Milano Mocks Vet’s Crowdfunding Campaign for Wall

Actress, a Democratic supporter, seemed unaware Brian Kolfage served in the Air Force and is a triple amputee

“Charmed” star Alyssa Milano is not a fan of the crowdfunding campaign to fund a border wall between the United States and Mexico.

The campaign, hosted on the GoFundMe website, has raised over $12 million as of this writing at midday Friday.

“Oh, yes! Let’s #GoFundTheWall while not taking care of our veterans. Cool. Cool. Cool,” tweeted the 46-year-old Milano, who has previously actively campaigned for the Democrat Party.

She endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in the 2016 election and was present at the hearing for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, when the judge was forced to defend himself against accusations of sexual misconduct.

An FBI investigation found no corroboration for the accusations and Kavanaugh consistently and vehemently denied the accusations.

Many quickly pointed out that Milano’s criticism of the GoFundMe wall campaign didn’t exactly hold up, especially when one considers that the campaign’s founder, Brian Kolfage, is an Air Force veteran and a triple amputee as a result of his service to this country.

“Uh, this effort was initiated by a veteran, who not incidentally is a triple amputee. Just FYI,” two-time Academy Award nominee and outspoken conservative actor James Woods tweeted to Milano.

“A veteran started this movement … a triple amputee at that! Just stop typing,” wrote another user in response to Milano.

Another responded, “Since when do you care about us veterans? Aand I’m for the wall.”

Yet another said, “I’d be perfectly happy to give my Planned Parenthood tax allotment to veterans.”

“President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still,” Kolfage wrote on the campaign’s GoFundMe page.

He added, “As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today.”

Kolfage’s grandparents immigrated to the United States legally, the page notes.

“This is the United States and we can do anything we want,” Kolfage told Fox News host Laura Ingraham this week on “The Ingraham Angle” about funding for the wall — the cost of which is estimated to be in the billions.

“This is not just about Republicans and conservatives. There’s an outpouring of Democrats that are messaging me and giving to this wall fund. It’s from both sides. You don’t hear the liberal media saying that.”

“If people want to donate to that wall and give their money, they can do it. What’s 80 bucks for 60 million people?”

He added, “This is not just about Republicans and conservatives. There’s an outpouring of Democrats that are messaging me and giving to this wall fund. It’s from both sides. You don’t hear the liberal media saying that.”
