U.S. Rep Frederica Wilson (D-FL) made headlines recently when she slammed President Trump for being “insensitive” to the widow of a slain soldier in Niger, publicly stating that the president said the soldier “knew what he signed up for … but when it happens, it hurts anyway.”
The president has denied the accusations, and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders slammed them as “appalling and disgusting.”
Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!

This controversy begs the question- does Rep. Wilson normally advocate for vets, or might she be doing this to gain some kind of political capital?
A new report from Fox News shows that Rep Wilson’s voting record for vets is less than stellar- she has voted against continuing veteran benefits, including payments to widows, the majority of the time. She has also opposed bills that would have improved VA services.
That’s right, people. The woman who said she is “committed to honoring our service members, not only with words but with deeds” opposed a BIPARTISAN bill, signed into law by Obama, that would provide funding to the VA and military until the government shut down.
Welp, there you have it folks, another Democrat of words and not needs. I’m sure she’d hate to see this on every person’s newsfeed, so SPREAD IT LIKE WILDFIRE!
