WATCH President Biden Troll Marjorie Taylor Greene During Remarks About Job Creation

Thursday, July 6, 2023 has not been a good day for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Earlier today, Greene was booted from the right-wing House Freedom Caucus, Politico reports.

A member of the House Freedom Caucus on Thursday confirmed that the conservative group has voted to boot Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) — a vote first reported by POLITICO last week.

“A vote was taken to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from the House Freedom Caucus for some of the things she’s done,” said Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.).

Greene, who has closely aligned herself with Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), apparently isn’t extreme enough to please the Freedom Caucus, and her shift to what passes as the “center” of today’s GOP is seen as a betrayal.

A few hours later after the Politico report, President Joe Biden was in Flex LTD in West Columbia, South Carolina to tout new jobs being created in the green energy sector, according to Mediaite, and he couldn’t resist trolling the Georgia Republican in his remarks.

“Since I took office, we’ve seen over 60 domestic manufacturing announcements all across the solar supply chain. One of the biggest is in Dalton, Georgia. You may find hard to believe, but that’s Marjorie Taylor Greene’s district. (Pauses for effect) I’ll be there for the groundbreaking!”

The audience laughed.

Biden continued: “So just today, the Department of Energy announced new incentives for companies to bring solar power manufacturing back to our shores. We’re in a real race. China’s ahead of us. This is another step in helping us meet the goal of 100% clean, renewable energy electricity by 2035, by 2035.”

Biden took a jab at Greene during a private fundraiser a few weeks ago, too, remarking:

“Matter of fact, I’m going to show up for a major initiative and investment that’s taking place in — in North Georgia, in the home of Marjorie Taylor Greene. (Laughter and applause.) It’s a multi-billion-dollar — it’s a multi-multi-million-dollar project. Okay? But I’m going to be there with a spade to turn the dirt, because I said — and I mean it — I — I represent all Americans, whether they’re Democrats or Republicans or whoever they are.”

Greene hasn’t yet responded to the president’s comments, but she likely will, if only because she knows he’s right.
