    The US actress-turned-activist and vocal anti-Trump critic has taken aim at a campaign designed to earn money for the US pesident’s pet project, giving her opinion about a better way to use the funds. She ended up being lambasted for being a know-nothing about the matters she tries to interfere with.

    Alyssa Milano’s Twitter offensive against the #GoFundTheWall campaign, set up to raise money for the wall on the US-Mexico border to curb illegal immigration, has gathered thousands of critical comments and re-tweets. In her post, she mocked the cause of the crowdfunding, which has already gathered over $13 million, implying that the money should be better spent on veterans.

    ​However, she happened to overlook the fact that the campaign had been started by a triple amputee veteran and Purple Heart recipient Brian Kolfage, who lost his limbs in a rocket strike in Iraq. This was immediately brought to her attention.

    Kolfage himself has come down on her, calling for actions instead of ranting.

    ​One of those, who volunteered to educate her, was US actor and producer James Woods, known for his support of conservative ideas.

    ​Some users said they were veterans and voiced their support for the wall, slamming Milano.

    ​Some confronted Milano, asking how she supports veterans herself, or why she dared to voice an opinion about something she knows little about.

    ​​There were those who suggested veterans should be supported with the money, spent on illegal immigrants.

    The Charmed-star Alyssa Milano, who rose to fame with her roles in a number of series, has been off the radar for some time. She revived her popularity after taking part in pro-Democrat political activism and the #MeToo movement fighting against sexual harassment.

    Using her social media platform for political statements, Alyssa Milano also stole the spotlight during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, thanks to her behaviour and choice of attire. While some people focused their attention on the “revealing” black pinstriped dress that the actress wore, others took note of Milano’s “death stare".
