Huckabee Sanders on Frederica Wilson: 'All Hat, No Cattle'
Oct 21, 2017, 00:31
The Trump White House invented a story for the speech and flat out lied to smear a member of Congress because she had the nerve to let the public know how this president insulted the family of a fallen soldier.
And while Trump got on Twitter on Wednesday and accused Wilson of fabricating what he said, at no point did Kelly refute her version of the events.
"He said to me, 'What do I say?' I said to him, 'Sir, there is nothing you can do to lighten the burden on these families, '" Kelly said.
Congresswoman Wilson on Tuesday claimed that Trump inappropriately told the widow of Sergeant La David Johnson that he "knew what he signed up for", during a phone call in which Trump offered his sympathy.
Kelly made the comments at the White House Thursday while discussing President Donald Trump's conversations with the families of four soldiers killed in an Ambush in Niger earlier this month. He knew what he was getting into by joining that one percent, he knew what the possibilities were because we're at war.
"I was stunned that she had done that", he said on Thursday.
Wilson has denounced the president's remarks in the press, calling them insensitive.
"If you want to go after Gen. Kelly, that's up to you", she added, "but I think if you want to get into a debate with a four-star Marine general, I think that's something highly inappropriate".
"Absolutely stuns me. And I thought at least that was sacred". In response, Kelly told him what General Joseph Dunford, now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told him when Robert Kelly was killed. Johnson's aunt, who raised the soldier from a young age, said the family took that remark to be disrespectful. Grogan nearly retired, 53 years old; Duke, I think less than a year on the job.
Further, Wilson claimed that one of Kelly's terms for her - an empty barrel - was "racist", even though she also said she hadn't heard of an empty barrel before.
In recent interviews on the subject of his phone call to Myeshia Johnson, it appeared as though Trump could not even remember Sgt. Johnson's name, so for Kelly to direct his outrage at a congresswoman who is simply sticking up for a widow who she feels was slighted and insulted seems a little over the top.
"What the hell is my son doing back in the fight?"
Brianna Keilar was struck by Huckabee Sanders' "absurd statement" about the media continuing to cover this, while former retired Rear Admiral and State Department spokesman John Kirby agreed that of course Kelly "should be questioned" and scrutinized by the press. So did other people in the White House.
Kelly said he explained to Trump beforehand how he had learned about his son's death and what the officer said to him.
