White House Chief Of Staff John Kelly Lied

I honestly don't know what posses these people once they join the Trump train. Time and again things are said that are easily proved to be utter BS. Why can't they realize the so-called fake media has proof to backup what they say. See there's this new technological innovation capable of taking video and then being able to record it. Source: CNN
"And 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 (Barack) Obama, and on that phone call, he gave the money, the $20 million, to build the building, and she sat down," Kelly said. "And we were stunned, stunned that she'd done it. Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned."

"I was not even in Congress in 2009 when the money for the building was secured," the Florida Democrat said Friday on CNN's "New Day." "So that's a lie. How dare he. However, I named the building at the behest of (then-FBI Director James Comey) with the help of (then-House Speaker John Boehner), working across party lines. So he didn't tell the truth."
Both of them can't be right. Somebody's fabricating the truth. This is where a Florida newspaper comes in. Check it out... The South Florida Sun Sentinel video from 2015 shows the full speech of Congresswoman Frederica Wilson at the dedication ceremony of a new FBI building in Miramar, Florida, named for two slain FBI agents. Turns out the video proves she's right.

Speaking of lying...

New York Magazine--The congresswoman told WPLG Local 10 News in Miami that she listened to the entire call on speakerphone while she was riding in a limousine with Johnson’s family to meet his casket at the airport.

Facts Matter
In other words Trump called the limo she was riding in with the family. Not on the widow's cell phone. The driver put it on speakerphone. In addition Trump said he had people in his office at the time of the call also listening. Nothing secret nor a personal one on one conversation by any means.

Look it doesn't matter to me very much how he took what he said or the congresswoman's interpretation of it. What is important are the actual facts.(1) There was nothing secretive about any of this. (2) Chief of Staff John Kelly found the need to lie about her FBI speech.

Once again everything got blown way out of proportion. Shame goes to everyone involved. The president, his chief of staff and the media. This seems to be always the way things turn out when Donald's involved. That day in the White House Rose Garden Trump could have simply said he was allowing the widow appropriate time to grieve and move on. Instead had to drag everybody else into this trying to make himself look good. By doing so he's now playing the victim overshadowing that of the widow whom I'm positive wanted no part to play in any of this.

Now everybody needs to shut up, drop this and move on... including me after speaking my piece.
