“You mean to tell me that I have become so important that the White House is following me and my words?” stated Wilson in an interview with WSVN-TV in Miami. “This is amazing. That’s amazing. That is absolutely phenomenal. I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now.”
Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson claimed Friday that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly used a “racist term” when he described her as an “empty barrel.”
Kelly made the remark during a press briefing Thursday while defending a phone call that President Donald Trump made to the widow of a fallen soldier.
The Daily Caller News Foundation could not find any instances where “empty barrel” has been used as a racial epithet.
