Congress GOP Whining

Marjorie Taylor Greene Gets Mocked For Whining That She’s Being Attacked

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is whining because the House GOP leadership won’t do whatever she tells them to, failing to realize that as a freshman member of Congress who doesn’t serve on any committees (thanks to her own big mouth and offensive, anti-Semitic statements), she has zero credibility.

Appearing on Matt Gaetz’s (R-FL) podcast this week, Greene lamented her plight:

“Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference. He doesn’t have the full support to be speaker, he doesn’t have the votes that are there because there’s many of us that are very unhappy about the failure to hold Republicans accountable while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar, and many others just constantly take the abuse by the Democrats.”

That led MSNBC host Jonathan Capehart to expertly mock Greene on his show Sunday, remarking:

“Oh, boo-hoo, so much victimhood here.”

Capehart then turned to former GOP political consultant Stuart Stevens and ex-Republican National, Committee head Michael Steele, asking Stevens:

“Stuart, what she says, again, is not untrue ; Kevin McCarthy has a problem. To my mind his being silent on all these things, he might think it might help him if Republicans get the majority. But if he thinks he can control them, if indeed Republicans become the majority, he’s got another thing coming, doesn’t he?”

Stevens replied:

“You know, for years when Mike and I were involved in the party, we always said that it was a mistake to try to negotiate with terrorists. And that’s what Kevin McCarthy’s trying to do. If these Republicans take over the House next year, which odds are they are, they’re going to put Kevin McCarthy’s head on a spike.”

Stevens then added:

“They’re not going to elect him speaker. He isn’t what they want to be. He is like a chairman who wants to make everybody happy and it’s not going to work. They want a warrior, somebody like a Jim Jordan, to be Speaker of the House.”

Jim Jordan as Speaker of the House? Can you imagine the danger that would be to this country? He’s a man who allegedly allowed male college students on the wrestling team he was a coach for to be routinely molested by the team doctor without ever reporting the abuse those wrestlers say he witnessed. Putting such a person third in the line of secession to the White House would be a massive national security risk.

If Marjorie Taylor Greene is so damn unhappy in Congress, here’s a free bit of advice for her: Don’t run for reelection next year. No one but the knuckle-dragging troglodytes on the far right of the Republican Party will miss you in the least.
