James Woods shreds ‘parasite rodeo clown’ Rep. Frederica Wilson, who declares, ‘I’m a rock star now’

As we reported earlier, Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., politicized the death of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, attacking President Trump over her translation of a phone call he made to Johnson’s widow.  Responding to the attack, White House Chief of Staff Gen John Kelly, gave a somber speech in which he shredded Wilson.  That prompted her to declare herself a “rock star.”  Many weren’t happy with her, including actor JAmes Woods, who shredded the Florida Democrat, calling her a “parasite rodeo clown.”

Woods’ tweet came after a video posted online by CBS News reporter Alan He showed Wilson reacting to Kelly’s criticism.

“You mean to tell me that I have become so important (loud laughter) that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing! That’s amazing! That is absolutely phenomenal! I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now,” she said.

That, of course, didn’t sit too well with a number of people.

“Wearing the cowboy hat was a major mistake. This … is so far beyond a mistake,” Twitchy said.


WSVN added:

“Let me tell you what my mother told me when I was little,” Wilson said. “She said, ‘The dog can bark at the moon all night long, but it doesn’t become an issue until the moon barks back.’”

The criticism comes two days after Wilson accused the president of being insensitive in his condolence call to Sgt. La David Johnson’s widow. Wilson said she was in the limousine with the family when she heard the president say, “He knew what he was signing up for.”

Family members of the soldier backed up Wilson’s account of the call, but the president said it’s not true. “I didn’t say what that congresswoman said,” Trump said. “I didn’t say it at all.”

The congresswoman said she has been getting threatening phone calls from white nationalists and now hearing what Kelly said at the White House, but she appears to be unfazed.

Oh yes, there are plenty of words.  As it turns out, Woods had quite a bit to say about Wilson, and exposed her anti-veteran voting record:

According to Fox News:

It turns out that U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson has frequently voted against measures intended to help veterans and their families, according to VoteSmart.org, a vote-tracking site whose founding board members included former presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.

The measures that Wilson opposed included a bill that could have ensured that families of four soldiers slain in Afghanistan in 2013 received death and burial benefits.

In fact, Wilson’s voting record on veterans issues may call into question the sincerity of her recent defense of U.S. service members and their families.

Despite Wilson’s claim to be “committed to honoring our service members, not only with words but with deeds,” she has voted against most bills ensuring continued funding for veteran benefits, including payments to widows of fallen soldiers, the vote-tracking site shows.

She has also opposed measures designed to improve the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Scratch a liberal, find a hypocrite…

He also made the point that Wilson’s clown act was a possible diversion from something else:

And what could that possibly be?
