Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah denounced Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Saturday for spreading “nonsense” concerning the 2020 presidential election being stolen from Donald Trump, after Greene bragged that she had secured the previous president’s help.
In response to a publish Greene which she claimed she had a “GREAT” telephone name with Trump, Romney tweeted: “Lies of a feather flock collectively: Marjorie Taylor Greene’s nonsense and the ‘huge lie’ of a stolen election.
In a sequence of tweets Saturday, Greene asserted that “You may no means beat [Trump]” as a result of “We The Individuals have his again,” regardless that President Biden defeated Trump within the 2020 election.
Greene went on to declare she would “ no means apologize” and “won’t ever again down and can get up towards the endless bloodthirsty mob.”
Rising proof of Greene’s espousal of pernicious conspiracy theories has not too long ago made headlines nationwide. On Wednesday, a video surfaced of Greene aggressively confronting Parkland faculty taking pictures survivor David Hogg in 2019. The next day, a 2018 Fb publish was found which Greene blamed a damaging wildfire in California on a laser beam fired from house that was managed a outstanding Jewish banking household with connections to highly effective Democrats. The New York Instances reported Friday on a 40-minute video that was initially posted to YouTube in 2018 which Greene questions whether or not a aircraft flew into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, asserts that President Barack Obama was secretly Muslim, and means that John F. Kennedy Jr.’s was assassinated as a result of he was a possible political rival of Hillary Clinton. Earlier than being elected to Congress, Greene usually endorsed executing prime Democratic politicians on social media, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former President Barack Obama. After one Fb follower requested her, “Now will we get to hold them,” in reference to Obama and Clinton, Greene responded: “Stage is being set. Gamers are being put in place. We should be affected person. This should be carried out completely or liberal judges would allow them to off.” Romney, who usually clashed publicly with Trump and blamed him for inciting the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol, is the primary outstanding Republican to admonish Greene publicly.
What To Watch For:
Greene’s resolution to dig in and her refusal to apologize will solely trigger additional issues for GOP management, who’ve refused to censure her so far. A number of Democrat lawmakers and activists have known as for her removal from the Home Training Committee and Congress. Republican Chief within the Home of Representatives, Rep Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif), has not but addressed Greene’s feedback or conduct.
