Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) dropped a major truth bomb about Donald Trump and his lackeys: “the Trump White House is full of white supremacists,” as she continued to blast 45 and John Kelly as liars. Donald Trump picked a fight with the wrong black woman. She has become his worst nightmare because she isn’t backing down one iota.
In a new interview with The New York Times, said “They are making themselves look like fools. They have no credibility.” s“They are trying to assassinate my character, and they are assassinating their own because everything they say is coming out and shown to be a lie.”
Wilson said she felt “very sorry” for Kelly, who disgraced himself mopping up Trump’s mess while he attacked her as an “empty barrel.” Kelly told a vicious lie about Wilson using her speech during the 2015 dedication of a new FBI office in Miramar, Fla., to take credit for securing the funding for the building. She wasn’t even in office at the time when the funding was granted. The full video of the event was published by the Sun Sentinel that shows John Kelly lied when he shamefully attacked the congresswoman.
“I feel very sorry for him because he feels such a need to lie on me and I’m not even his enemy,” Wilson told the NY Times. “I just can’t even imagine why he would fabricate something like that. That is absolutely insane. I’m just flabbergasted because it’s very easy to trace.”
Did the White House walk it back or did Kelly apologize to Wilson. Um, no. They are digging in, trying to say she made remarks off camera. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said it was inappropriate to question John Kelly because he’s a four star general. Er, he is no longer in active duty and even so, he is not above questioning by the media.
The controversy, in its fourth day, started when Donald Trump falsely claimed former Presidents Barack Obama and George Bush for not calling families of fallen service members, while he tried to dodge answering questions after four Green Berets were killed in an ambush in Niger. Wilson was present when Trump called the wife of Sgt. La David Johnson, one of the four killed in the ambush.
The White House accused Wilson of politicizing a “sacred” issue after she told the media Donald Trump disrespected Myeshia Johnson by telling her her husband knew what he was signing up for when he joined the Army. Sgt. Johnson’s mother and another relative confirmed Wilson’s account of the phone call. She was riding in the limousine as they family traveled to Miami International Airport to meet his body. Trump’s call was placed on speaker phone so all in the vehicle could hear.
Trump attacked Wilson, accusing her of “fabricating” what he said, only to have John Kelly confirm that he was the one who told him to use those words to Mrs. Johnson. Trump then attacked Wilson as “wacky” during a late night Twitter rant.
The problem for the Trump White House is that Wilson isn’t backing down. The only persons who have been proven to be liars in this whole controversy are Donald Trump, John Kelly and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Everything Rep. Wilson has said has been proven to be true. Trump has a pattern of picking on women, specifically black and brown women, but he messed with the wrong one this time around.
