In a disgusting display of behavior, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) laughed for a news camera because of all the attention she’s gotten for politicizing President Trump’s difficult phone call to a new widow of a fallen soldier.
Wilson claims that Trump callously told Army Sgt. La David Johnson’s wife, Myeshia Johnson, during the phone call that her husband “knew what he was getting into” when he joined the military. That soundbite ripped from context has catapulted the congresswoman to a point where we all know what color cowboy hat she chooses to match her outfit on any given day.
On Thursday, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly gave an emotional press conference (watch here) condemning Johnson’s role in crossing the line and politicizing the death of a brave soldier. Kelly knows all too well the pain of losing a loved one in battle. He lost his son to a landmine in Afghanistan in 2010.
“It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on the conversation – absolutely stuns me,” Kelly said. “And I thought at least that was sacred.”
But instead of taking a moment for self-reflection, the over-the-top Democrat made it even more about herself with this embarrassing moment:
“You mean to tell me that I have become so important… [LAUGHS]… that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing! It’s amazing! That is absolutely phenomenal. I have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now!”
This makes it clear that Wilson started this whole thing because of her own political aspirations. It’s sickening behavior and Kelly had it right when he dubbed her an “empty barrel making the most noise.” Which, by the way, Wilson is now calling a racist attack. She should know, her team looked up the phrase in the dictionary:
A hashtag was started by leftists on Twitter taking the side of Rep. Wilson: #IBelieveFrederica. It was quickly appropriated by more sane voices:
And speaking of appropriation: where does this congresswoman get off wearing cowboy hats? Any good Democrat knows that dressing like a cowboy is triggering to indigenous peoples and has been deleted from the acceptable list of costumes for Halloween, or otherwise. #IBelieveFrederica is breaking her party's own rules.
