In a sign that she may seek the 2024 Republican presidential nomination if failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump doesn’t run, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) will appear later this month at the Iowa State Fair, which is virtually a prerequisite for any candidate seeking the White House.
Jennifer Jacobs of Bloomberg reports:
“Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican congresswoman from Georgia known for espousing debunked conspiracy theories, plans to appear this month at the Iowa State Fair, according to people familiar with her plans. The gathering is a traditional platform for White House aspirants.
“It’s not yet clear whether Greene will speak at the event on Aug. 19 or just attend it. The Des Moines Register this year isn’t planning to organize a Soap Box, which politicians in the past have used to raise their profiles for a national campaign.”
On Tuesday, Greene attacked two of her House colleagues for daring to call for a continuation of the eviction moratorium which was first put into place when the COVID pandemic hit in the United States.
According to Greene, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Cori Bush (D-MO) had been protesting on the steps of the Capitol and turned it “into a homeless camp.”
Today, Greene took to Twitter and blatantly lied that the COVID-19 vaccine had caused pregnant women to have miscarriages, but provided absolutely no proof of her specious claim:
Greene is also fervently loyal to Trump and travels the country with accused sex trafficker Matt Gaetz (R-FL) in a pathetic effort to overturn the 2020 election which Trump lost to President Joe Biden, who also received the most votes in U.S. history.
If indeed Greene runs for the GOP nomination, she could actually win. The party has devolved into that level of insanity and idiocy. But if she does become the Republican presidential nominee, she’ll likely lose by a bigger margin than Trump did.
