For a large branch of the Republican Party, beefing on Twitter has apparently taken the place of serious political discussion.
The most recent intra-party squabble centers, as it often does, around Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (Ga.), who on Tuesday called fellow Republican Rep. Nancy Mays (SC) “trash at the GOP convention.”
Mess’s crime? Condemning Representative Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) CNN Ilhan Omar (D-Min.), a Muslim, is a terrorist after Boebert insists on rape. boberto then refused to apologize after saying that she would, and instead claimed that Omar owed His Apologies.
For reasons that aren’t clear, Greene put himself in “the conversation” on Boebert’s behalf via a Tuesday morning tweet.
Aside from misspelling “you are” as he did, Green falsely claimed Mace is pro-abortion because she was raped in high school and supports the relaxation of abortion restrictions in rape and incest cases.
Mace responded with a string of subtle emoji labeling Greene “batshit crazy.”
In a follow-up tweet aimed at Green, Messe replied further, “Who I am not is a religious fanatic (or racist). You might want to try this in your own little ‘league.
“I have from time to time condemned my colleagues on both sides of the aisle for racist tropes and remarks that I find abhorrent, and this is no different than any other,” Mace said Regarding Boebert’s remarks during an appearance on CNN Monday.
“As a member of Congress and given such divisions in our country, we all have a responsibility, elected members of Congress on both sides of the aisle and the American people in our communities and in our communities at work and everything else. To reduce, we have a responsibility to lower the temperature, and it doesn’t do that,” she continued.
The CNN segment also drew attention for a different reason: sheer hypocrisy. In a same-day appearance on Fox News and CNN, Congressman told Fox viewers say natural immunity provides better protection against COVID-19 than vaccinesDoes not happen like this), claiming on CNN she is a “supporter of vaccination and wearing a mask”.
