The Democratic congresswoman took issue with his use of "empty barrels."

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) called White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s use of the phrase “empty barrels” a “racist term” in an apperance on CNN on Friday.

“I think that’s a racist term,” she told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota.

“When we looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel, and I don’t like to be dragged into something like that,” Wilson added.

Kelly had said at the White House press briefing on Thursday that “empty barrels make the most noise,” when referring to the congresswoman’s politicization of the president’s phone call to a fallen soldier’s family.
