'Disgusting Person': Donald Trump Jr. Slams Rep. Frederica Wilson
Wilson claimed on Tuesday that Trump told the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson during a phone call that "he knew what he signed up for." Johnson was among four service members killed earlier this month during an ambush in Niger.
After Trump and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly criticized Wilson, she said, "You mean to tell me that I have become so important that the White House is following me and my words? This is amazing. That’s amazing. That is absolutely phenomenal. I’ll have to tell my kids that I’m a rock star now."
Trump Jr. took to Twitter to call Wilson a "disgusting person."
So, what anyone with a brain already knew comes out on tape. Make a name for yourself at any cost. Disgusting person. https://t.co/O0H7LcTm4u

On "Outnumbered," Trish Regan said she believes Wilson spoke out in the first place in a calculated move to elevate her profile.
"This was done for political purposes. This was not done with the thoughts of the family or, frankly, the thoughts of the country," Regan said, admonishing Wilson for exploiting a Gold Star family and trying to sow more division.
"It's just your own humanity. And I don't thinks she showed any humanity at all in this instance," Regan said.
