MT Greene Storms Out Of A House Hearing When A Democrat Puts Her On Blast

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) angrily stormed out of a House committee meeting Tuesday after a Democrat reminded her that while she loves to blame her opponents of being soft on crime, she’s the one who hugged Jan. 6 defendants.

During the House Oversight Committee hearing, Rep. Robert Garcia (D-CA) said he found it ironic that Greene was complaining about crime in Washington, D.C.

“I want to remind the gentlelady that it was her that actually organized a trip to the D.C. jail to hug and high-five and sit with the insurrectionists that actually attacked our Capitol,” Garcia said. “This is quite ironic that the insurrectionists that tried to overthrow our government in the Capitol City were being coddled — were being, were actually being coddled by, it’s quite a shame that you call them political prisoners or hostages, I think maybe you called them.”

Greene appeared to heckle Garcia at that point. She then stood and walked out of the room in a huff., which led Garcia to note, “So I think it’s quite interesting that my colleague was trying to talk about the safety of D.C. when she literally supported an insurrection, an attack on the Capitol, visited the prisoners.”

Garcia later had this to say about Greene on Twitter/X:

Marjorie Taylor Greene is bigoted, deranged, hateful, and completely unfit for office, as many noted on social media.

I get tired of watching these, and so frustrated with democrats.
Sometimes have to take a higher ground, with this rightwing, need to play on their level. Greene a number of times stopped a session as some democrat said something that she found offensive about her, even tho it wasn’t, spent next 10 min looking up the rules, and the dem had to re phrase. Yet Greene can call every dem a liar, corrupt, stupid, saying ph*ck you,etc. ,and nothing happens. And they’re too polite. Not one of these maga politicians addresses a dem in the proper manner of those sessions,, such as will the gentlelady of…yet dems keep doing that. They’re weak. I don’t get it. They need to play on the same level
