Conservative firebrand Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene got into a shouting match with Democrat Jamie Raskin and ‘Never Trump’ Republican Liz Cheney in the middle of a House vote to hold former Trump aide Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress.
Greene, presumably disgusted with the vote set up by the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot due to Bannon’s refusal to comply with a subpoena, remarked on the floor, “This is a joke.”
She then pressed Raskin (D-MD), “Why don’t you investigate something people actually care about?”
“You represent the American people,” he responded.
“You represent Congress,” Greene replied.
Cheney (R-WY) whose lone career goal is to harass President Trump and any of his supporters, then reportedly chimed in.
At this point, according to The Hill, Cheney couldn’t contain herself and responded to Marjorie Taylor Greene, firing back that the Georgia Republican was “a joke” and that she should be focusing on ‘Jewish space lasers.’
Greene denied the bizarre accusation, which stems from an old stream of consciousness social media post she made before entering Congress.
“I never said that! You’re done. You’re a joke, Liz. Your party rejected you!” Greene reportedly fired back.
Walking away from the ‘Orange Man Bad’ duo, Greene asked the question on everybody’s minds: “Why don’t you go investigate something that matters to the American people?”
Afghanistan is a disaster, the border is being overrun, the economy is in shambles, and the federal government is just shy of holding people down and forcing a needle in them to ‘combat COVID,’ and these House committee clowns are focused like a space laser on Bannon and Trump.
The fact that Raskin is even involved in committee activity investigating a riot due to opposition to election results is rich.
Raskin objected to the certification of Florida’s electoral votes in 2017. In fact, House Democrats tried objecting to the certification of electoral votes for Donald Trump that year on 11 separate occasions.
Such arguments against the legitimacy of the 2016 election led to marches, sometimes violent, in Washington, D.C. that year.
Never forget that. Democrats tried inciting an ‘insurrection’ after Hillary Clinton lost her bid to become President, long before the MENSA candidates in the media even knew what the word meant.
Cheney is, as Greene suggests, a well-documented joke, just thoroughly obsessed with former President Trump and his supporters.
Trump’s questioning of the 2020 election results has been described by Cheney as “the gravest violation of an oath of office by any president in American history,” while she insists the GOP “cannot embrace insurrection.”
Cheney reportedly slapped Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) on the hand during the riot.
“I smacked his hand away and told him, ‘Get away from me. You f***ing did this,'” she allegedly said.
Marjorie Taylor Greene has been involved in several verbal altercations aside from yesterday’s spat with Cheney and Raskin.
Last month, she got into a shouting match with Representative Debbie Dingell (D-MI) over abortion ‘rights.’
This past summer, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) reportedly called on the Sergeant-at-Arms to make Congress a “safe, civil place” after Greene “aggressively” confronted her as she left the House chamber.
CNN reported, “Greene shouted at Ocasio-Cortez that she was failing to defend her ‘radical socialist beliefs by declining to publicly debate her.”
“You don’t care about the American people,” Greene shouted. “Why do you support terrorists and Antifa?”
The House voted to hold Bannon in criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with the investigation into the Capitol riot.
Cheney, of course, along with 8 other Republicans, joined Democrats in their vote.
The matter will now be sent to the Biden Justice Department.
