“In his way, he tried to express his opinion,” Kelly said of Trump’s phone call. “I just thought the selfless devotion that brings men and women to die on the battlefield, I just thought it might be sacred,” he said.
From Fox News Insider:
“He said, he was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he was killed,” Kelly recalled, adding that is the sentiment Trump was trying to convey to the grieving family members.
Kelly also recounted how Wilson previously acted selfishly during another memorial to fallen heroes.
He was present in 2015 when the FBI dedicated its Miami-Dade, Fla. field office to two agents killed in a firefight with drug traffickers.
After some heartfelt speeches, Wilson took the stage and described how she secured the funding for the building.
“I was stunned that she had done that,” he said. “Even for someone that is that empty of a barrel.”
