Florida Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson recently made headlines when she attacked President Trump for what she called “insensitive remarks” to the widow of a slain U.S. soldier. She was listening in on a phone call from the president to the widow of Sgt. LA David T. Johnson and immediately told the press about the encounter. Johnson was tragically killed in an ambush in Niger this month.

Fox News reports:

“Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., kicked off President Donald Trump’s public feud with a Gold Star family after she accused him of making an ‘insensitive’ remark to the soldier’s widow.

“Wilson said Trump told Army Sgt. La David Johnson’s pregnant widow that he ‘knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.’ Johnson was killed earlier this month during an attack in Africa.”

The president has disputed the encounter and is angered by Wilson’s attempts to use the situation for political purposes. And as it turns out, Wilson’s record indicates she’s not the great defender of the military that she claims to be. She has said she is “committed to honoring our service members, not only with words but with deeds,” but that might not exactly be the case when it comes to things that really matter.

Case in point:

1. Wilson voted against most bills that continue funding to veterans. This includes payments to widows of killed soldiers.

2. She opposed bills that would improve the Department of Veterans Affairs.

3. She voted against the “Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act” in 2013. The bill passed and was signed by then President Obama. It gave funding to the military and the VA until the next government shutdown.

4. She voted against ensuring benefits paid to veterans and their families would not be affected by a government shutdown. Four killed soldiers were denied burial benefits because of the shutdown.

5. She has voted multiple times against bills meant to improve VA services.

6. She voted against improving military equipment.

Not exactly the hero for the military she claims to be, eh?

    She is a mean, vile, vicious silly looking woman that has no respect for our President, the Widow and her brave husband who sacrificed all for her to be a le to trash our President and be a goofy looking troll that looks like she is about to ride a stationary bull. And absolutely has no respect for herself. A student cannot wear a Trump T-Shirt to school, but this troll can dress like she’s on her way to a Halloween party. What a joke. And this is a little goblin that is trying to run our government.

    • Gerry Costa

      “Silly looking” is putting it very mildly. She looks like a total horse’s a** — no offense meant to all the horses out there. I thought pelosi, waters and schumer were the bottom of the barrel(empty) but we have found a scumbag demoTRASH even lower than those 3. This female needs to be kicked out of Congress because she is absolutely FUBAR !!!!!!!!

      • kory

        Hah

  • deusexmachina1

    Nothing to see here…

    Just a rodeo clown in drag….

  • Gerry Costa

    Throw this ignorant b***h to the curb.

  • higgy01

    The mad hatter obviously has no love nor respect for our military which seems to be a characteristic of most dims. The crucial question is just hw did she continually get elected in Florida. Are the voters in that state so callous and/or so stupid they would send an obvious America hating racist to congress.

    • denlee

      I have a feeling this good for nothing will get a big surprise come next election – don’t think there are enough “dead heads” in Florida to vote for her again – even with the “race card” in her hand!

  • caesar

    She is a bigoted-racist empty barrel!

    • Gnowark

      You Racist! [dumb broad said “empty barrel makes most noise” is a racist remark because when you aren’t capable of rational thought, crying ‘racist’ formerly would divert attention from your ignorance].

      • supergun

        caesar is just telling it like it is. No more, no less.

    • supergun

      We have to much fake news and fake politicians.

  • dan690

    To be in good standing in the democrat party you have to lie about most everything.

  • N6J

    So Ms. Wilson teams up with Maxine Waters forming the ________ party. The two of them should be in the unemployment line, rather the unemployable line. Any other nominees?

    • Jim

      Both of these racist ho’s need to be DEAD..

  • Susan Rachels Proctor

    Now the widow (who has not spoken) will be on GMA to talk about this Monday AM. I’m sure Wilson has filled her head full of stuff to say, since she’s a close family friend.

  • Steve Queipo

    Just another two faced lying liberal do their job.

  • GrizzMann

    Did you know that a Florida cowboy (girl) is really called a ”Cracker”?

  • regulus30

    ABSOLUTELY sick of liberal/dumocraps trying to gain votes by “politicizing everything”; they are hypocrites, bigots and immoral power mongers.

    • supergun

      They are the “living dead”.

  • jhforsythe

    This is one crazy old woman with a stupid looking hat! She is a bigoted old racist. How could anyone be dumb enough to vote for her? She accomplishes nothing for here constituents with her nutty antics. Only a fool would believe her rants about our President.

  • John810

    Who is she trying to imitate an old “Buffalo Soldier”? From the size of her she looks more like the buffalo! What a two faced, shzt stirrer she is. I hope her associates in Congress are taking a look at this leftist phony. To say that someone killed in the line of duty knew what they were getting into but went anyway is a recognation of their bravery, the comment is not used as an insult as this insanse, “empty barrel” Congresswoman is inferring!

  • pemaddin

    Hateful empty barrel blowing up.

  • Patriotic American

    This woman is completely INSANE, only a Moron would have So many colored cowboy hats. She should be Impeached.

  • Robert Dimmock

    Take a good look at this brave phony taking advantage of a phone call she overheard, to get free press. She has proved herself to be a liar and a rediculous person , that is a discredit to her state, country and constituents.

  • zappyist

    Too bad the people in her district don’t educate themselves a bit before voting.

  • VanceJ

    The mad hatter better give it up.

  • JimZimmerman
  • supergun

    The best thing that the People of Florida could do, is vote her out in her next election. We do not have time for people that don’t know how to make our Country great again. She is in the way, obstructs America’s progress, and does not have a clue what her job is.

  • Bob Hope

    This is what the people voted for in their state just as bad as California. Wake up people shes gotten rich off the government kickbacks. That’s how these broke asz people get elected then become millionaires. Gotten rich off from your money. And still is.
