General John Kelly, White House Chief of Staff, told a jammed press room how he was stunned a member of Congress sat in on a personal conversation between grieving family and President Trump.
Rep. Frederica Wilson doesn’t like President Trump so her embellishment would seem natural and unforgiving but what she’s done by spreading her rhetoric to the mainstream media is unconscionable. This woman created a narrative that Trump was disrespectful to a grieving family which doesn’t fit his character especially when he loves the military so much.
Kelly was so surprised about Wilson’s action; he had to travel over to Arlington National Cemetary to compose himself.
Some of you should remember Frederica. She claimed Trayvon Martin was hunted down like a dog and shot in the street a few years ago as she used an 11-12-year-old photo of an 18-year-old young man. She is causing problems with her exaggerations and whatever she says should be taken with a grain of salt.

Kelly said he was “stunned” by Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson’s (Fla.) negative description of Trump’s call to the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed during an ambush in Niger.
“It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on that conversation. Absolutely stuns me. I would have thought that was sacred,” Kelly said during a surprise appearance in the White House press briefing room.
After learning of what he called Wilson’s “selfish behavior,” Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general whose son was killed in battle in Afghanistan, said he was so taken aback that he walked for an hour and a half in Arlington National Cemetery to compose himself.
Speaking slowly and solemnly, he described Thursday what happened when he learned his son had been killed.
“He was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he was killed,” Kelly remembered being told by his casualty officer, Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, who is now chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
“He knew what he was getting into by joining that one percent,” he added. “He knew what the possibilities were because we’re at war.”
Kelly said the message he received as a father of a fallen soldier was what Trump was trying to convey to Johnson’s widow, Myeshia.
“He expressed his condolences in the best way that he could,” he said.
Wilson’s office declined to comment on Kelly’s remarks.
Watch the press segment here:
Liberals will not understand what the President said or meant to this family because they view the military and the police as existential threats to “their” power, thus do not trust them nor do they have empathy for them or their families.
Gen John Kelly, read the very words of the President’s phone call to the soldier Family. Now the statement in full context is verified by the General. Why in the world was this Congresswoman perched there listening to this call? For no other reason than to politicize the death of a soldier to further her political agenda.
Liberals are hilarious on how they jump on quotes from the media without having the full context. That Congresswoman according to the General is a disgrace to her office.
