Congress Foreign Policy GOP Russia

Marjorie Taylor Greene Melts Down After A GOP Colleague Applauds Destruction Of The Russian Military

Making it clear yet again that she understands absolutely nothing about foreign policy or the implications of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) attacked a fellow Republican simply because he dared to applaud the destruction of Russia’s military by Ukrainian freedom fighters.

According to Newsweek, Greene pitched an online hissy fit in response to a $40 billion aid package to Ukraine:

On Tuesday, the House approved the package, about $7 billion more than President Joe Biden requested, giving Ukraine military and economic assistance to help fend off Russian troops. The following day, Greene slammed Crenshaw on Twitter for supporting the package.

The back and forth between Crenshaw and Greene began when he responded on Twitter to a person who criticized him for this vote in support of the military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine:

That led Greene to interject herself into the online debate:

“So you think we are funding a proxy war with Russia? You speak as if Ukrainian lives should be thrown away, as if they have no value. Just used and thrown away. For your proxy war? How does that help Americans? How does any of this help?”

Crenshaw, however, was more than equal to the task of retaliation against Greene:

“Still going after that slot on Russia Today huh?”

Oddly, Greene then suggested that aid to Ukraine was fueling inflation in the United States:

“Sanctions aren’t stopping anything, but they are driving inflation and fuel prices. I refuse to vote for useless measures that cause problems but solve none. While you send $40 billion for your proxy war against Russia, I’m focused on baby formula for American babies.”

Perhaps it’s time we took a closer look at Congresswoman Greene’s finances. Has she accepted any money from Russia or Russian interests?
