Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson is loving the attention her attack on Donald Trump is bringing her. On Thursday afternoon she bragged she is a "rock star" after she was criticized by White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly, who happens to be a Gold Star father himself.

WSVN-TV posted video by CBS News reporter Alan He. During the video she is laughing and giddy when she reacting to Kelly's criticism of her.

“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!”


7News spoke with Congresswoman Frederica Wilson as she reacted to hearing a statement from the White House chief of staff on a controversial phone call.

Wilson was on Miami Dade College’s North Campus Thursday afternoon and had a few words to say about what Chief of Staff John Kelly said about her…

…“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.’”

She also said that she couldn’t believe she was getting this much attention from the White House and that she was gonna go home and tell her grandchildren that she’s a rockstar.”

“The congresswoman will not be making any further comment on the issue because the focus should be on helping a grieving widow and family heal, not on her or Donald Trump,” Wilson’s spokesperson said in a statement Thursday.

Earlier in the day, Wilson had said Kelly’s statements were motivated so he could keep his position in the White House.

“John Kelly’s trying to keep his job,” Wilson told Politico. “He will say anything. There were other people who heard what I heard.”
