Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson: “You mean to tell me that I have become so important (loud laughter) that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing! That’s amazing! That is absolutely phenomenal! I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now!”
After lying about President Trump’s condolence call to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson who was killed in Niger on October 4, a giddy from national attention Florida Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson bragged to reporters Thursday afternoon that she is now a “rock star” following criticism by White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly (USMC Ret), himself a Gold Star father.
7News spoke with Congresswoman Frederica Wilson as she reacted to hearing a statement from the White House chief of staff on a controversial phone call.
Wilson was on Miami Dade College’s North Campus Thursday afternoon and had a few words to say about what Chief of Staff John Kelly said about her…
…“Let me tell you what my mother told me when I was little,” Wilson said. “She said, ‘The dog can bark at the moon all night long, but it doesn’t become an issue until the moon barks back.’”
She also said that she couldn’t believe she was getting this much attention from the White House and that she was gonna go home and tell her grandchildren that she’s a rockstar.”
