Jerry Springer correctly calls out those who believed that Chief of Staff John Kelly was some savior against the chaos in the White House. In actuality, Kelly seems to share his boss's racial views, at least when it comes to the Confederacy and African-Americans. Kelly's untruthful harangue against Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) was replete with lies, but he now says that he will never apologize to her.
On Oct. 19, in a rare appearance at the White House press briefing, Kelly attacked Wilson as an "empty barrel" and accused her of grandstanding at a public event two years ago in Florida by taking credit for securing federal funding for a new building. Video of the event soon released by the Florida Sun Sentinel showed Wilson did no such thing. Rather, she used her speech to praise the two slain FBI agents in whose memory the building was named. Wilson accused Kelly of "character assassination," and members of the Congressional Black Caucus demanded that Kelly apologize.
Oh, no. No. Never. Well, I'll apologize if I need to. But for something like that, absolutely not. I stand by my comments."
