Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Friday said she was grateful for the Democratic “morons” and 11 Republicans who voted Thursday to eject her from House committees — saying they only made her more prominent.
Greene pointed out that Republicans are in the minority and can’t do much on committees regardless.
“I woke up early this morning literally laughing thinking about what a bunch of morons the Democrats (+11) are for giving some one like me free time,” Greene tweeted.
“In this Democrat tyrannical government, Conservative Republicans have no say on committees anyway. Oh this is going to be fun!”
In another tweet shortly after the vote, she wrote, “Thank you to the real Republicans who stood with me today! Every single one of you will be remembered.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has repeatedly declined to answer questions about Greene at daily press briefings, saying she didn’t want to elevate her conspiracy theories. But on Capitol Hill, Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have used Greene’s remarks to attack Republicans.
Pelosi’s office said in a Thursday night press release that the “GOP [is] rapidly morphing into GQP” and that House Minority Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) “has effectively handed the keys to the conference over to Greene.”
Greene spoke in her own defense Thursday on the House floor, saying she regrets believing in the QAnon conspiracy theory. But she defiantly accused the news media of being “just as guilty as QAnon” of spreading untruths.
The newly sworn-in congresswoman also disavowed her association with the 9/11 truth movement and her assertion that mass shootings were possible “false flag” operations staged by gun control advocates.
The 11 Republicans voting against Greene included New York Reps. Nicole Malliotakis, who represents Staten Island and part of Brooklyn; John Katko, who represents Syracuse; and Chris Jacobs, whose district spans the suburbs of Buffalo and Rochester.
Malliotakis said Greene’s remarks were “deeply disturbing and extraordinarily offensive and hurtful to thousands of 9/11 families and first responders, our Jewish community and many others in my district,” and that she wants Pelosi (D-Calif.) to take similar action against scandal-plagued Democrats.
