Triple amputee US Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage has caused quite a national stir with his GoFundMe campaign allowing private citizens to donate money to help fund President Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall.
Although still a long way from its lofty goal, his GoFundMe page raised well over $12 million in the first few days alone. His efforts to help Americans use their own money in the way they best see fit to boost its security and keep its sovereignty intact is drawing derision from liberals, though.
At first, when Kolfage had raised only hundreds of thousands of dollars, he was mocked for not raising enough money to make any difference with anything. Now that he’s got a sizable amount, liberals are now trying to tell him what he should do with it.
Liberal Hollywood actress and activist Alyssa Milano tried to shame the wounded warrior for what he’s doing. Aside from being known for constantly bashing Trump, she played roles in “Charmed,” “Commando,” and “Who’s the Boss?,” according to IMDB.
Writing on Twitter, she said sarcastically, “Oh, yes! Let's #GoFundTheWall while not taking care of our veterans. Cool. Cool. Cool.”
Conservative Hollywood actor James Woods — who recently gave Milano helpful advice on how to save her horses when they were threatened by a southern California wildfire, according to The Wrap — replied, “Uh, this effort was initiated by a veteran, who not incidentally is a triple amputee. Just FYI…”
Her other Twitter followers were quick to respond, too:
Someone wisely pointed out, too, that nothing is stopping Milano from starting her own GoFundMe for veterans:
Kolfage said he’s working through the process of getting the wall funding money to the Trump Administration and is working with “very high level contacts” to make sure it gets used for what it’s supposed to be used for.
