'No Colorful Hat Will Hide Her Shame': The Five Rips Frederica Wilson for Bashing Kelly
The panel on The Five criticized Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) for her response to Gen. John Kelly's heartfelt press conference on Thursday.
Kelly explained that President Trump was being compassionate when he called the family of La David Johnson, a U.S. Army sergeant killed in Niger.
He described Wilson as a political opportunist who used Johnson's death to smear Trump and by extension, the act of making calls to next-of-kin.
"John Kelly's trying to keep his job. He will say anything," says @RepWilson in response to Trump's staff chief who ripped her for disclosing details of controversial call with soldier's widow. "There were other people who heard what I heard." https://t.co/DDer2xmO9S

“John Kelly’s trying to keep his job. He will say anything. There were other people who heard what I heard," Wilson told Politico reporter Marc Caputo.
"Her behavior is shameful," Guilfoyle said, calling it "pretty disgusting" that the Miami congresswoman would use Johnson's death to score political points against the president.
Dana Perino called Wilson's statement "classless."
"No colorful hat is going to hide her shame," Gutfeld said of Wilson's signature attire.
Jesse Watters said that Kelly should be considered the "conscience of the nation," rather than comedian Jimmy Kimmel, who has been given that moniker by some.
"The congresswoman totally disrespected the sanctity of the call," he said.
