Women with blonde hair chafe, justifiably so, at dumb blonde jokes. Well, Marjorie Taylor Greene (MTG) truly is a dumb blonde joke. She went above and beyond yesterday at a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Committee meeting, of which she is a member of.
To begin with, MTG reacted badly to an instagram photo presented by Democrat representative, Eric Swalwell, of her calling to defund the FBI. MTG responded, sarcastically, that Swalwell had intimate relations with a Chinese spy. Swalwell was targeted by the Chinese, a few years back. The FBI became involved. Swalwell cooperated. No evidence was ever found.
The Democrats, on the Committee wanted her statement removed from the record. But they were overruled by the Republican Members. MTG did not retract her statement.
MTG then went after DHS Secretary Mayorkis on fentanyl deaths. MTG accused Greene of just letting these deaths happen. Mayorkis responded, as follows,
“Congresswoman, let me assure you that we’re not letting it go on.”
Greene’s response showed her true colours.
“No, I reclaim my time. You’re a liar. You are letting this go on. And the numbers prove it.”
The Republican Chair of the Committee, following this outburst, ruled that Greene could not speak for the rest of the session. Greene left the session, soon after.
Greene is one of the far right gang who forced 15 votes to be held before Kevin McCarthy won the House Speakership. She has frustrated her fellow Republicans with her outbursts. With her fellow gang members supporting her, Greene is creating division when Republican ranks, who only hold a very slim majority in Congress. This is the lady who was heckled out of New Yourk city on the day of Trump’s arraignment. This is also the same lady who has aspirations of being Trump’s Vice President.
I am sorry, not, but this lady is plain dumb. I really have to question the intelligence of the people, in her District, who voted her in. Again, I am at a loss for words. Can she top this? Most likely.
