WATCH: Frederica Wilson Tries To Give Trump A Witty Nickname, Fails

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) responded to President Donald Trump’s latest jab at friend-turned-foe Omarosa Manigault Newman by trying to come up with a derogatory nickname for the president, struggling mightily in the process.

Appearing on CNN’s “New Day” with co-host John Berman, Wilson expressed her rage over the president calling Newman a “dog” in an early morning tweet.

“A dog. How dare he? He has taken this country to its knees,” Wilson said. “We already have racism raining down all over America.”

“He has a nickname for everyone,” Wilson continued. “And his nickname is…’Don-In-The-First-Grade Reader.'”

“The only way we can stop him and stop all of this foolishness and all of this hate and all of this racism that’s raining down on America is we’ve got to send a blue wave through this country in the midterms,” Wilson concluded. “And then we’ve got to send a blue wave in November, and we’ll shut down all of this racism.”
