Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson this week claimed that the term “empty barrel” is racist after John Kelly said it at a press conference. With that in mind, Rep. Maxine Waters launched the following criticism at the White House and the WH chief of staff while defending Rep. Wilson:
General Kelly has lied. Rep. Wilson has conducted herself w/ dignity. The only empty barrel I see is the one in the Oval Office.

First of all…
I guess it is no longer a racist statement. https://t.co/wc2pFfsRVk

Hmm, guess not! Waters also vouched for the dignity of self-described “rock star” Wilson while slamming John Kelly, something that sparked plenty of eye rolls:
OMG…This is the funniest tweet I've seen all morning. https://t.co/o8teGpnNmh
