WASHINGTON — Representative Frederica S. Wilson called White House chief of staff John F. Kelly ‘‘a puppet of the president’’ and said he should apologize for his false claims about her while defending President Trump’s military condolence calls.
‘‘Not only does he owe me an apology, but he owes an apology to the American people,’’ the Florida Democrat said on MSNBC. She also accused Kelly of ‘‘character assassination’’ on another day of sparring with the White House after her criticism last week of Trump’s call to the widow of one of four service members killed in Niger.
The president took to Twitter Sunday morning, again attacking Wilson as ‘‘wacky’’ and calling her ‘‘the gift that keeps on giving for the Republican Party.’’
On Thursday, Kelly falsely said Wilson had claimed credit in 2015 for securing funding for a federal building. She had pushed to name the building for two slain FBI agents.
