Micki Witthoeft, the mother of Ashli Babbit, an Air Force veteran who was killed during the January 6 protest on Capitol Hill on January 6 2021, sent a clear message to the January 6 Committee. In an interview with Human Event’s Chris Barron on Thursday, she told them to “kiss my a**.”
“I miss my little housewife life,” Witthoeft answered when Barron asked about for her thoughts on her new role in politics.
“I had three different places tell me no, no, no, this is too controversial. So even getting my child home and in a place of rest was difficult for me. They wouldn’t even let me bury my child. She was denied the rendering of honors by the Air Force, despite being deployed four times and injured on her 21st birthday… she gave her youth, her ability to have a family and eventually her life for this country and they deny her the rendering of honors, so yeah I am pissed off,” Witthoeft said.
“The truth is that four American patriots died that day – my daughter, Roseanne Boyland, Kevin Greeson and Benjamin Philips died at the hands of the Capitol police that day. And it is my belief that Officer Sicknick could possibly be still alive if they would have rendered him aid,” she added.
When Barron asked her what she would say to the January 6 Committee if they requested her testimony, she answered, “I would tell them to kiss my ass.”
Forty-fifth President Donald Trump sent a personal birthday message to Ashli Babbitt’s family on her birthday in October 2021.

“To Ashli’s family and friends, please know that her memory will live on in our hearts for all time. Ashli served our country in the United States Air Force for 14 years, where she was a security forces airman and eventually went on to achieve the rank of senior airman. She defended our nation overseas including in Iraq to fight in the war on terror,” Trump said.
“On that horrible day of January 6, Ashli arrived at the United States Capitol. She was shot and tragically killed. Today would’ve been her birthday. Happy birthday, Ashli,” Trump added.
