Last week, left wing TV host Samantha Bee mocked a young CPAC attendee as having “Nazi hair.” Bee looked like a real jerk when it was revealed the young man was a Cancer patient.
After the young man’s story went national, his GoFundMe page raised over $100K!

Cancer patient mocked by Samantha Bee raises $100k in two days [VIDEO]
After a Samantha Bee-produced segment covering CPAC mocked an attendee suffering from brain cancer for having “Nazi hair,” the people responded to hate with love.
Kyle Coddington, 20, was diagnosed in December 2016 with stage 4 glioblastoma, which is one of the most aggressive forms of brain cancer. Keri Ann Knupp set up a GoFundMe page on Kyle’s behalf only days after his diagnosis with a goal of raising $2,500 for “medical and associated travel expenses.”
However, only two days after the segment aired and went viral for all the wrong reasons, Coddington raised over $100,000. And with those generous donations came messages of hope too.
Sherry Weaver posted the top comment, writing, “Kyle, Jan 7th 2014 I was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma and given three months to live, by one doctor and 10% chance to live 2 years by another. A third doctor, Dr Ashamala at Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn said, ‘when we cure you’. Those words gave me hope and hope is what you need with this disease.”
Here’s a video from FOX and Friends:
