Marjorie Taylor Greene reveals she spoke to Donald Trump
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene announced on Saturday that she had a ‘great call’ with former President Donald Trump, who gave her his support despite the recent backlash against the controversial Georgia lawmaker. In a long statement posted to Twitter, Greene claimed that the American people are ‘absolutely 100% loyal’ to 'all-time favorite POTUS' Trump and that she ‘won’t back down’ as she battles against the ‘enemy within’.
Greene, the first person to serve in Congress and openly support the QAnon conspiracy theory, continued to blast Democrats over the coronavirus shutdowns and Black Lives Matter protests as she claimed they had failed to protect the American people.
She branded the Democrats a ‘never-ending blood thirsty mob’ as compared herself to Trump due to the recent criticism she has faced.
Trump's support comes as Greene faces mounting calls to resign after it emerged she berated fellow freshman Congresswoman Cori Bush in a hallway and footage surfaced of her saying 'gangs control' black and Hispanic men.
Earlier this week, video also emerged of her harassing a Parkland mass shooting survivor in 2019 and Facebook posts were unearthed in which she showed support for executing top Democrats.
‘I had a GREAT call with my all-time favorite POTUS, President Trump!’ she wrote. ‘I’m so grateful for his support and more importantly the people of this country are absolutely 100% loyal to him because he is 100% loyal to the people and America First.’
'You can never beat him because We the People have his back,' she claimed before mounting her attack on the Democrats.
'The blood thirsty media and the socialists hate America. Democrats are attacking me now just like they always attack President Trump.
'I can promise you this. I won’t back down. I’ll never apologize. And I’ll always keep fighting for the people. For me, it’s America First!!!
'Any elected politician that isn’t putting America First doesn’t deserve their position or the people’s trust.'
Greene then complained that the Democrats are guilty of 'America Last policies' which are for 'sell outs and losers'.
'In these divisive times, real leaders must be determined and strong to be able to withstand the rabid mob that preys on weakness in order to get their way, which is to destroy our country,' she claimed.
'Yes, there is an enemy within. And that enemy is a poisonous rot of socialist policies and America last sell outs who are pompous hypocrites that believe they are untouchable elites.'
Greene's Twitter rant continued even further as she accused Democrats of bring in 'devastating shutdowns' while they 'wined and dined maskless'.
Greene has repeatedly pushed unfounded conspiracy theories including that late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was replaced by a body double; the 2017 Las Vegas massacre that left 58 dead was organized by Democrats; and that there is no evidence a hijacked plane hit the Pentagon on 9/11.
Romney blasts news of Trump call with Taylor Greene: 'Lies of a feather flock together'
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Saturday blasted news that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene had spoken by phone with former President Trump amid growing backlash over the Georgia Republican's past remarks. “Lies of a feather flock together: Marjorie Taylor Greene’s nonsense and the 'big lie' of a stolen election,” Romney tweeted.
Romney has been quick to condemn Trump and his baseless allegations of widespread election fraud. He was the only GOP senator who voted to convict Trump during his first impeachment trial last year.
His tweet Saturday came in response to messages posted by Greene in which she said she had a “GREAT” phone call with Trump while pushing back on criticism from fellow members of Congress.
Greene tweeted after the call with Trump that she is “so grateful for his support.”
I had a GREAT call with my all time favorite POTUS, President Trump!
I’m so grateful for his support and more importantly the people of this country are absolutely 100% loyal to him because he is 100% loyal to the people and America First.
Members of both parties have condemned Greene for peddling conspiracy theories and supporting posts on Facebook before entering office that had called for violence against Democrats.
Democrats have begun pushing for hearings in order to remove Greene from the House.
When Matt Gaetz attended a 2019 GOP fundraiser in Orlando, his date that night was someone he knew well: a paid escort and amateur Instagram model who led a cocaine-fueled party after the event. The Florida congressman’s one-time wingman, Joel Greenberg, will identify that escort to investigators as one of more than 15 young women Gaetz paid for sex. But what distinguishes this woman, Megan Zalonka, is that she turned her relationship with Greenberg into a taxpayer-funded no-show job that earned her an estimated $7,000 to $17,500.
The Republican House minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, should testify before the commission to investigate the 6 January Capitol attack, the Wyoming representative Liz Cheney said on Friday, because he has “said publicly that he’s got information about the president’s state of mind that day”.
Former President Trump's false charge that the election was stolen has rattled the core of the GOP, sparking a nasty clash over who commands the soul of the party. The baseless claims have launched a splinter group of disgruntled Republican officials; and toppled a conservative icon, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who was ejected this week from the leadership ranks.
The scandal engulfing Matt Gaetz, one of Donald Trump’s brashest supporters in Congress, deepened on Friday after an associate admitted sex trafficking involving a minor and agreed to cooperate with investigators. Joel Greenberg, a former tax collector in Florida, said he and unidentified others paid a 17-year-old girl for sex and he provided the girl with drugs, according to court papers cited by multiple media outlets. Greenberg, 37, is expected to plead guilty to six federal charges, including financial crimes, in court in Orlando on Monday.
