Florida Representative, Frederica “Rock Star” Wilson, continues to belittle President Trump.
After listening in on the president’s condolence call to Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson, Wilson claims his remarks were insensitive. But, recently uncovered video of Wilson speaking about two murdered FBI agents shines a spotlight on the extent of her hypocrisy.
Wilson alleges that President Trump told the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson that “he knew what he signed up for.” Her comments are unleashing a firestorm among those who love to bash the president. However, as fate would have it, Wilson made a similar statement herself in 2015.
FBI Agents Jerry Dove and Ben Grogan were killed in a Miami shootout with bank robbers in 1986. The following is a short excerpt from her speech regarding the dedication of a building in memorial to the fallen agents:
“Most men and women in law enforcement leave their homes knowing there is a possibility they may not return. I know that Agents Grogan and Dove knew about [Miami’s] violence when they said goodbye to their families, picked up their badges and their guns, and left home on the morning of April 11, 1986. Yet, they still answered the charge to protect their community.”
As you can see, Wilson is expressing the same sentiments about Grogan and Dove that she is excoriating President Trump for allegedly expressing to Mrs. Johnson. Police, fireman, and soldiers know the dangers, but they do the job anyway. That is what makes them brave and heroic.
But it’s not about bravery and heroism for Rep. Wilson-it’s about striking at Trump.
Consequently, liberal media has yet to mention this audio. Instead, they are circulating another of Wilson’s speeches about the agents to portray Chief-of-Staff John Kelly as a liar. While Gen. Kelly’s words were incorrect, his point is on the mark. Wilson uses the dedication of the building to showcase her efforts, essentially making it about her.
Nevertheless, Wilson’s circus (complete with rodeo cowboy hats) is more evidence of how low leftists will go. Why turn something so personal and painful, into a public fiasco? Our guess would be, to make herself seem relevant. Tragically, she is using the death of Sgt. Johnson to do it.
