Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) isn’t messing around with Trump’s Twitter games and insults. She is calling out Trump’s White House for being full of white supremacists.
The New York Times reported:
Ms. Wilson, in an interview on Friday, called Mr. Kelly a liar and hinted strongly that the altercation, prompted by a call from President Trump to the widow of a fallen black soldier, was racially charged.
“The White House itself is full of white supremacists,” she said.
“They are making themselves look like fools. They have no credibility,” she said. “They are trying to assassinate my character, and they are assassinating their own because everything they say is coming out and shown to be a lie.”
Rep. Wilson is correct. The Trump administration is embarrassing itself, by following what is now a very familiar script. The President lies. A member of his staff tries to bail him out of trouble by lying. After both of these lies are exposed, the White House Press Secretary looks like an idiot by doubling down on all of the lies, because the president can never apologize or admit that he is wrong.
The whole scene is pathetic. It is pathetic that a president with clear racist beliefs can’t see past his own bigotry to console the family of a fallen hero. It is pathetic that the White House has been reduced to a place where lies are treated as truth to protect a small man’s fragile ego, and it is pathetic that America has to suffer this backward fool.
Rep. Wilson is Trump’s worst nightmare. She is a strong woman who isn’t playing his games. She is speaking truth to a nation, and shining sunlight through the clouds of Trump lies, which is what makes her exactly what Donald Trump fears the most. A leader with a backbone who doesn’t buckle when standing up for what’s right.
