President Trump Brands "Wacky Congresswoman Wilson"

President Trump Brands

Services for Sgt. La David T. Johnson are scheduled Saturday in a Fort Lauderdale suburb. The family member who raised Johnson called Wilson's account of the call "very accurate", and the White House has not refuted that Trump spoke those words.

President Donald Trump has branded Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., "Wacky Congresswoman Wilson" after she politicized his phone call with a military widow. She was unable to even recall what President Trump actually said when pressed by reporters the day after.

We're trying to figure out what's racist about the term "empty barrel".

"She also had quite a few comments that day that weren't part of that speech and weren't part of that video that were also witnessed by many people that were there", Sanders said, referring to "what Gen. Kelly referenced yesterday".

But video of Ms Wilson's nine-minute speech at the 2015 event, posted by the Sun-Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale, shows that she spoke exclusively about her efforts to get the building named after two fallen Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, praised the agents for their service and thanked colleagues in Congress from both parties. She wasn't just Johnson's congresswoman either. "But he can't just go on TV and lie on me".

During a series of interviews Friday, Wilson accused Kelly of lying about her.

At the other end, Trump's call came when the family was in a limousine at or en route to Miami International Airport to meet Johnson's casket.

"If you want to get into a debate with a four-star Marine general, I think that that's something highly inappropriate", she said.

TRUMP: "The Fake News is going insane with wacky Congresswoman Wilson (D), who was SECRETLY on a very personal call, and gave a total lie on content!" The slain soldier's aunt and uncle, Richard Johnson and Cowanda Jones-Johnson, who raised him as parents, were in the vehicle. Kelly's account of the call doesn't even square with Trump's. So was Johnson's wife and the Democratic congresswoman.

She said in TV interviews she wasn't secretly listening in - everyone in the vehicle heard - and in fact wanted to get on the call and "curse him out" but was not given the phone.

"If you're able to make a sacred act like honoring American heroes all about yourself, you're an 'empty barrel, ' " White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

The president's morning tweet extended a almost week-long controversy over Trump's handling of the deaths of four service members in an ambush in Niger and was the latest volley in a White House effort to discredit Wilson, a friend of the family of one of the fallen soldiers.

The video has been playing on CNN and the White House has not complained publicly.
