Video appears to show Kelly misrepresented speech of Dem lawmaker he called an 'empty barrel'

Newly resurfaced video appears to show that White House chief of staff John Kelly was incorrect when he accused Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) of taking credit for the funding of an FBI building in Miami in 2015.

Kelly was speaking to reporters during a rare press briefing appearance to address the growing controversy surrounding President Trump’s remarks to the widow of a U.S. soldier killed in an ambush in Niger.

"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, and how she took care of her constituents because she got the money, and she just called up President Obama, and on that phone call, he gave the money, the $20 million, to build the building, and she sat down,” Kelly told reporters.

Wilson fired back at Kelly, calling Kelly’s accusations “crazy” and noting that the building "was funded long before I got to Congress.”

4. That is like saying 2+2 appears to be 4

He said x, the video shows not x. Now he may be mistaken, he may be lying that can be contested but the fact he is flat out wrong as to what she said is proven at this point.

5. Video shows Kelly clearly lied about the nature of Rep. Wilson's presentation

at the 2025 event.

Kelly thinks he's so goddam clever.

6. I have long since been since sick to death of these ridiculous weasel words.

It doesn't "appear" to show Kelly "misrepresented" her speech. It SHOWS that he fucking LIED about her speech.

7. Don't shoot the messenger.

Yes, absolutely he lied. It's obvious and proven but like tRump, I bet he'll never admit it.

Only posted in case some might disbelieve Rep. Wilson or doubt her veracity. I believe this story and her account of the phone call that tRrump claims he can prove was not credible.
