President Donald Trump has repeatedly referred to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fl) as the “wacky Congresswoman,” He’s not wrong. Wilson fired back on Sunday morning, saying that the ambush in Niger that left four US soldiers dead “is (Trump’s) Benghazi” and demanding an apology to “the nation” from White House chief of staff John Kelly.
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D., Fla.) called a description from White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, in which he compared the representative’s behavior to that of an “empty barrel,” as racist on Friday.
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked Wilson about Kelly’s comments regarding her criticisms of President Donald Trump and his phone call with the widow of a fallen soldier.
Wilson said she had heard Kelly’s comments during a White House press briefing on Thursday and said much of what he said was a lie.
“He can’t just go on tv and lie on me,” Wilson said.
Camerota referenced Kelly’s criticism that “empty barrels make the most noise” and Wilson interrupted the host to claim the comment was racist.
“Okay, that’s a racist term too. I’m thinking about that one,” Wilson said. “We looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel and I don’t like to be dragged into something like that.”
Rep Wilson is trying anything in her power to take down the President. Attempting to link the tragedy that happened in Niger to Trump, as “Tump’s Benghazi” is just her latest. Let her continue to make a fool of herself and the Democratic party while we gear up for 2018 midterms. Share this with friends and family to remind them what’s at stake in 2018 if the Democrats get back into power.
