If there was ever any doubt about Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson’s self-serving tactics disguised as “concern” they were put to bed on Thursday.
Wilson, who attempted to shame President Donald Trump for a phone call he made to the widow of Green Beret Sgt. La David Johnson, laughed and bragged that she had become a “rock star” after Chief of Staff Gen John Kelly condemned her for shamelessly politicizing a private — and sacred — moment.
“You mean to tell me that I have become so important,” she told WSVN-TV before pausing to laugh, “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!”
A shameful display, which only served to prove her true intent all along was never about the Gold Star family or the fallen soldier, but her own political standing. Like the time she used a cermony dedciated to fallen FBI agents to grandstand about her fundraising “accomplishments.”
Gen. Kelly was quick to point out that repulsive move in his scolding, as he certainly has her number.
Wilson didn’t appear fazed:

The Florida Democrat compounded her disgraceful comments by attacking Gold Star father Gen. Kelly.
“John Kelly’s trying to keep his job. He will say anything. There were other people who heard what I heard,” she told Politico.
Fox News’ “The Five” destroyed her over her commentary.
Former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said that Gen. Kelly would likely not respond to Wilson’s “classless” attack.
“No colorful hat is going to hide her shame,” Greg Gutfeld said of the congresswoman known for wearing colorful cowboy hats.
And Kimberly Guilfoyle called her behavior “shameful.”
Perhaps more shameful is Rep. Wilson’s voting record on legislation to help veterans and their families where she was a near automatic “nay” vote.
Social media had its say too.
This woman is a disgrace…
