If White House Chief of Staff John Kelly thought he’d heard the last from Florida Congresswoman Frederick Wilson, whom he called an “empty barrel” earlier in the week, Wilson made it clear on MSNBC that she has no respect for the man.
Appearing on AM Joy Sunday morning, Wilson was asked by host Joy Reid:
“I want to ask you, Rep. Maxine Waters indicated John Kelly owes you an apology, and he did get the story wrong about the dedication of the FBI building in your district. Would you like to have an apology from John Kelly?”
Wilson lit into Kelly with both barrels, telling Reid:
“You know, John Kelly is almost–I guess you could say he was a puppet of the president and what he was trying to do was divert the attention away from the president and onto me, and he basically just lied on me.”
Congresswoman Wilson then added:
“I have been in politics a long time and most things don’t bother me, you know — it just rolls off my back. I have been lied on before, but the character assassination that he went through to call me out as an ’empty barrel,’ and all of the work that I have done, not only does he owe me an apology, but he owes an apology to the American people, because when he lied on me he lied to them.
“So, yes, he owes the American people an apology for lying on one of their congresswomen.”
But Kelly isn’t the only one who needs to apologize. So does President Trump for sending Kelly out to run interference for him and tell more lies that only served to compound the situation. While there may be some sliver of hope that Kelly will come to his senses and apologize, rest assured Trump won’t, because he isn’t capable of doing so. A malignant narcissist never thinks he’s done anything wrong.
