Calling White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly "a puppet of the president" and a liar, Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., said Sunday the Gold Star father owes something more to her and the American people: an apology.

"You know, John Kelly is almost — I guess you could say — he was a puppet of the president," Rep. Wilson told MSNBC's "AM Joy" about Gen. Kelly's support of President Donald Trump's White House condolence call to the Gold Star widow of U.S. Army Sgt. La David Johnson this week. "What he was trying to do was divert the attention away from the president on to me, and he basically just lied on me. I don't like, I don't appreciate, people lying on me. That's what he did."

Gen. Kelly in his White House press briefing response to Wilson's criticism of President Trump's private call to Myeshia Johnson for saying the soldier knew the risks of his enlisting, added a rebuke of Wilson for taking credit for procuring funding for an FBI building in Miami in 2015.

I have been in politics a long time and most things don't bother me, you know, it just rolls off my back," Wilson added Sunday to MSNBC's Joy Reid. "I have been lied on before, but the character assassination that he went through to call me out of my name, 'an empty barrel,' not only does he owe me an apology but he owes an apology to the American people, because when he lied on me, he lied to them.

"And yes, he owes the American people an apology for lying on one of their congresswomen."
