MTG Blasts Democrats After Heated Committee Exchange

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) took to social media to defend her actions following a contentious House Oversight Committee meeting on Monday where she clashed with Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Jasmine Crockett (D-TX). Greene said she was “upset and disgusted” with the current state of affairs in Washington D.C.

The altercation began when Greene mocked Crockett’s fake eyelashes and made a comment about her intelligence, prompting Ocasio-Cortez to respond “Oh girl, oh baby girl, don’t even play.” Greene fired back with “Oh really, baby girl?”

In her social media post, Greene accused Democrats of weaponizing the Department of Justice against former President Donald Trump and ignoring “their own paid criminal rioters.” She also criticized the treatment of Jan. 6 protesters and the growing national debt.

“The Democrats are the same people who voted to kill unborn babies up until the day of birth and they would march us all in front of a firing squad if they could,” Greene wrote. She claimed that “Washington DC only cares about funding and fighting foreign wars” while “refusing to fight the war waged against the American people at our own southern border.

Greene concluded by saying she wouldn’t apologize for her tone or keep people “addicted to outrage and hopium.” The exchange underscored the deep divisions between Republican and Democratic lawmakers as they navigate a range of contentious issues facing the country.
