Rep. Frederica Wilson Says John Kelly Used Racist Term Against Her

The utter incompetence of Donald Trump and his bootlicking brigade at 1600 STFU Ave. in addressing the deaths of 4 soldiers in the African country of Niger this week has once again proven that this administration is essentially the scum of the earth.

Trump telling a gold star widow that her dead husband “knew what he signed up for”, lead to his public undressing by Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson. Wilson’s dragging of Donnie lead 1600 STFU Ave’s chief-of-staff John Kelly to come out with this slanderous statement to defend his boss and discredit the congresswoman according to ABCNews:

“A congresswoman stood up, and in a long tradition of empty barrels making the most noise, stood up there in all of that and talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building,” Kelly said Thursday. “We were stunned, stunned that she’d done it. Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned.”

According to Congresswoman Wilson, that phrase, “empty barrel”, is steeped in racism:

“I think that’s a racist term too, I’m thinking about that when we looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel and I don’t like to be dragged into something like that,” Wilson told CNN.

We can’t say that we’re familiar with the phrase either, but John Kelly needs to watch his mouth. We don’t care how many shiny lil’ pins he used to put on his clothes.
