Twitter Erupts With Disgust After Kevin McCarthy Names Marjorie Taylor Greene Speaker Pro Tempore

In what may well be the surest sign yet that the Biblical apocalypse isn’t far off, Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) named Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) Speaker Pro Tempore.

Greene called the House of Representatives to order Wednesday morning and a clerk then read the following proclamation from McCarthy:

“I hereby appoint the Honorable Marjorie Taylor Greene to act as Speaker Pro Tempore on this day. Signed, Kevin McCarthy, Speaker of the House of Representatives.”

A video clip of Greene presiding over the House quickly went viral on Twitter, garnering over 1.1 million views.

But it was reaction to Greene temporarily serving as Speaker that set off anger, disgust, and mockery on social media.
