Republican Reps Nancy Mays and Marjorie Taylor Green of South Carolina are engaged in a war of tweets about the other’s conservative credentials.
The row began after Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert made Islamophobic remarks about Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, one of two Muslim women elected to Congress, calling her a member of the “jihad squad.”
In response, Ms. Mace criticized Ms. Boberto CNN on Monday.
“We have a responsibility to lower the temperature and it doesn’t do that,” she said. “I didn’t come into Congress to take advantage of people on Twitter by throwing bombs, raising money, or saying crazy things to be a comedian.”
In response, Ms Green, who has made Islamophobic remarks on several occasions, criticized Ms Mays, calling her “garbage at the GOP convention”.
“Never attacked by Democrats or Rino (same thing) because she’s not conservative, she’s pro-abortion,” Ms Green said.
Ms. Mays was raped in high school and later released. In response, she has said she supports the “fetal heartbeat” law, but also supports exemptions for victims of rape and incest, which she did as a state legislator, her website says. .
“And, when I am correcting you, I am a pro-life financial conservative who was attacked by the Left all weekend (as I often am) as I challenged China in Taiwan,” He tweeted. “What I am not is a religious fanatic (or racist). You might want to try it in your little “league” over there.
Ms. Mays also corrected the Georgia Republican’s grammar by saying “*you are”. In a follow-up tweet, Ms Mace used a series of emojis to say Ms Green was “bat**t crazy”.
The point is that Ms. Mace has sometimes spoken out against former President Donald Trump. After the January 6 riots, Ms. Mays said she no longer supports Mr. Trump.
“But all that, his whole legacy, was erased yesterday,” he told CNN those days. “And we have to start over.”
While Ms. Mays did not support Mr. Trump’s impeachment, she did support his condemnation. Similarly, he voted to hold former Trump adviser Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide evidence to the select committee investigating the riot.
Mr Trump has taken notice and asked the South Carolina freshman to challenge the primary.
