California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) got the better of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) during an online debate on the issue of LGBT rights and shut down the congresswoman by using one of her most absurd conspiracy theories against her.
Newsom criticized Target for taking down for removing some of its Pride Month merchandise due to a backlash from right-wingers like Greene, expressing his disappointment on Twitter.
“CEO of Target Brian Cornell selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists is a real profile in courage. This isn’t just a couple stores in the South. There is a systematic attack on the gay community happening across the country.
“Wake up America. This doesn’t stop here. You’re black? You’re Asian? You’re Jewish? You’re a woman? You’re next.”
Greene countered Newsom’s posting by claiming the “gay community” isn’t under attack and tried to blame Target for displaying “tuck-friendly” clothing aimed at children. That claim has since been debunked by The Associated Press, which noted, “The ‘tuck-friendly’ swimsuits are only offered in adult sizes, according to a spokesperson for the company and Target’s website. Kids’ swimsuits in the collection do not feature this label.”
That’s when Newsom used a verbal nuclear weapon to completely vaporize the Georgia Republican.
The space laser line is a reference to comments Greene made on Facebook in which she suggested the Rothschild family had financed lasers that caused the California wildfires.
Game, set, and match Gavin Newsom.
