Marjorie Taylor Greene Humiliates Herself With Hateful, Misspelled Tweet Attacking A GOP Colleague

An attempt by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) to attack a GOP House colleague went hilariously wrong when Greene posted a tweet with a blatant misspelling that wound up leaving her humiliated while simultaneously proving that her command of the English language leaves a lot to be desired.

Greene’s anger was aimed at Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who had criticized Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for a nasty Islamophobic smear she fired at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), according to The Hill:

The controversy between Omar and Boebert began after a video surfaced over the Thanksgiving weekend of Boebert saying that she and a staffer were getting on a Capitol elevator when she saw a Capitol Police officer racing toward them.

She then turned and saw Omar standing nearby. “I said, ‘Well, she doesn’t have a backpack. We should be fine,’ ” Boebert recalled, drawing laughs from the audience. “And I said, ‘Oh, look. The ‘jihad squad’ decided to show up for work today.’”

Omar denied that the encounter ever happened and accused Boebert of inventing a false story to smear her.

That led Rep. Mace to remark on CNN that she condemned Boebert “100 percent.”

Mace’s comments drew Greene’s ire, and she attacked her on Twitter:

Mace was quick to call Greene out for not even knowing how to spell:

Sounds like a civil war is breaking out in the Republican Party. Here’s hoping it escalates and destroys the entire GOP. The country would be better off without them.

Kevin McCarthy Slammed For His ‘Pathetic’ Statement On Boebert’s Islamophobic Comments

 

Earlier this week, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) made a disgusting remark in which she referred to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as a suicide bomber:

Boebert later issued a half-assed apology for her comments which sounded less like contrition than it did a desperate attempt to tamp down controversy:

Despite calls for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to condemn Boebert, he waited over 24 hours before he said anything, finally issuing a tepid statement that read:

“I talked to Congresswoman Lauren Boebert today. She has apologized for what she said and has reached out to Congresswoman Omar to meet next week.

“I spoke with Leader (Steny) Hoyer today to help facilitate that meeting so that Congress can get back to talking to each other and working on the challenges facing the American people.”

Be sure and note that nowhere in that statement did McCarthy criticize Boebert or call her out for her bigotry.

McCarthy’s belated comment was the topic of discussion on MSNBC Saturday, with host Yasmin Vossoughian asking GOP strategist Susan Del Percio if we should “expect more” from the minority leader. Del Percio replied:

“We should expect more from leadership, but Kevin McCarthy has shown no leadership, so I don’t expect more from him because he’s incompetent and is just bound to whatever he thinks — and that’s the key, whatever he thinks — will make Donald Trump happy. So that’s his audience and that’s who he’s playing to. … Kevin McCarthy is trying to maybe look like something — I can’t say like a leader, because he’s just not — and he’s just become pathetic.”

McCarthy is indeed pathetic, and so is the vast majority of the GOP in both the House and Senate. They have no shame and no plan to help the country. Instead, they use hatred, lies, and bigotry to try and pretend they’re more than just a cult masquerading as a political party.

Lauren Boebert Tries To Troll Greta Thunberg But Only Succeeds In Owning Herself

Much like her political idol, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) loves to try and use social media for the purposes of trolling those she disagrees with.

The problem, however, is that Boebert is so dense that most of the time all she accomplishes is owning herself in the most humiliating ways imaginable.

And that’s most certainly the case with a tweet Boebert sent out in reaction to remarks made by climate change activist Greta Thunberg, according to HuffPost:

Conspiracy theory-endorsing Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) faced mockery on Monday after she attacked climate activist Greta Thunberg’s “no more blah blah blah” comments at the United Nations COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

Outside the summit, Thunberg called out world leaders for being all talk and too little action on addressing global warming. “No more blah blah blah,” she said. “No more whatever the fuck they’re doing inside there.”

That led Boebert to provide her own snarky take on the well-known “tell me without telling me” meme that’s become a staple online:

Here’s the thing Boebert completely neglected to realize: She’s making fun of an 18-year-old girl who is genuinely trying to make the world a better place. Thunberg has also been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and will likely win that honor before she reaches the age of 21, which is virtually unheard of.

Lauren Boebert, on the other hand, is a loudmouth and a boor who barely managed to earn a high school diploma and seems to get dumber with each every word she speaks or tweets, suggesting on Monday that she would like to use explosives in order to blow up metal detectors at the U.S. Capitol.

It didn’t take long before Boebert got exactly what she deserved: A thorough verbal drubbing on Twitter:

‘Ghoulish’ Lauren Boebert Slammed For Tweet Mocking Alec Baldwin After Tragedy On Movie Set

Less than 24 hours after actor Alex Baldwin accidentally shot and killed award-winning cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie “Rust,” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) posted a hateful, tone-deaf tweet making light of the situation and attacking Baldwin.

Boebert referenced a tweet Baldwin sent seven years ago in the aftermath of the police shooting of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man who was gunned down by a police officer in Ferguson, Missiouri.

Even though the two events are not even vaguely similar, Boebert sent out this tweet:

Reaction on social media was immediate. Even former Trump White House Director of Strategic Communications Alyssa Farah was disgusted by Boebert’s attempt to use a tragedy in order to score cheap political points:

 

Democratic Congressman Ruben Gallego (AZ) also lit into Boebert:

Matt Gaetz Gave Himself, Boebert, And Greene A Nickname – That Set Off A Wave Of Mockery

When he’s not busy (allegedly) chasing after underage girls and then paying them off via Venmo, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) also takes time to post the random rantings of his diseased mind on social media, which is a big mistake because those postings almost always come back to bite him right on the ass.

Such is the case with a tweet Gaetz sent out Thursday about himself and two of his closest (only?) friends in Congress, Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA):

As you’d expect, Twitter users had other suggestions that would be much more appropriate for the three GOPers:

Personally, I’m fond of calling them the Treason Posse, but I’d be just as happy to see them referred to by their inmate register numbers.
