Rep. Frederica Wilson Laughs Off Criticism by Gen. John Kelly, Says: ‘I’m a Rock Star Now!’
Florida Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, basking in national attention following her blistering attack on President Donald Trump over a condolence call to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson who was killed in Niger on October 4 with three other Americans, 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.
Video from WSVN-TV posted online by CBS News reporter Alan He shows a giddy, laughing Wilson reacting to criticism Kelly.
“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!”
