Liberal Hollywood actress lashes out at tripple amputee vet over GoFundMe campaign
Liberal Hollywood actress-turned-activist Alyssa Milano has lashed out at the triple amputee Purple Heart vet behind the viral GoFundMe campaign to raise US border wall funds, accusing him of “not taking care of veterans.”
For most decent people, Brian Kolfage epitomizes the all-American hero: A patriotic military veteran who sacrificed his own life serving his country.
After losing both legs and an arm during a rocket attack in Iraq, Senior Airman Kolfage is, to this day, the most severely wounded Airman to survive any war.
Amazingly, Brian walked out of Walter Reed hospital, where he was treated for his injuries, just 11 months after being injured and immediately continued his service to the Air Force, assigned to Davis Monthan AFB 355 SFS as the base security manager.
Brian furthered his service to the community by proudly accepting to be on Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford’s Veterans Advisory Committee.
He provided crucial inside information to help the congresswoman make vital decisions which helped veterans nationally.
He was invited by the Congresswoman to be her special guest at the 2012 Presidential State of The Union Address when she resigned.
Brian continues to work for his local congressman on the veterans advisory committee.
Kolfage has since graduated from university and become a powerful motivational speaker, inspiring other injured veterans as they make their own journey along the road to recovery.
Brian and his wife continue to make trips back to Walter Reed Army Medical Center to visit with newly wounded vets, as his insight and ability to connect with the veterans gives them new hope for their future.
In 2014 Brian has bestowed the most honorable award that a wounded warrior can receive, the George C. Lang Award for Courage, not only for his fearlessness but his selfless actions while taking care of other wounded veterans who were in need of mentoring.
Kolfage recently made headlines after launching a campaign to raise funds to help with construction costs of the US Southern Border wall.
His GoFundMe campaign went viral this week, raising (at time of press) over $14 million from donations, and rising.
According to multimillionaire actress Alyssa Milano, Senior Airman Brian Kolfage still hasn’t done enough to serve his country.
Speaking from her Califonia mansion, within the confines of her Bell Canyon gated community, out-of-work actress Milano responded to reports on the huge success of Kolfage’s fundraising.
“Oh, yes! Let’s GoFundTheWall while not taking care of our veterans. Cool. Cool. Cool,” the left-wing activist said in a social media post.
Oh, yes! Let’s #GoFundTheWall while not taking care of our veterans. Cool. Cool. Cool.

The critisisms didn’t go down too well with other Twitter users, however.
As others on social media pointed out, the founder of the crowdfunding effort, Brian Kolfage, is a veteran of the Air Force and is a triple amputee due to his wartime wounds from Iraq.
“He’s given an awful lot. 3-limbs. What have YOU given?” one user asked.
Uh, this effort was initiated by a veteran, who not incidentally is a triple amputee. Just FYI… https://t.co/fJN0hT10eV

On the GoFundMe page, “We The People Will Fund The Wall,” Brian Kolfage explains:
Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. 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.
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. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.
I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT!It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.
So far, the project has raised over $14 million of its goal to raise $1 billion.
