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.
Bill Cassidy, the Louisiana Republican senator, predicted on Sunday morning that Donald Trump will not be the party’s nominee for president in 2024, pointing to the number of seats lost by Republicans in the House and Senate over the four years Trump was in office.
Donald Trump on Sunday launched his attempted political comeback, teasing a possible run for the presidency in 2024 and denouncing Joe Biden for “the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history”. The former president made his first speech since leaving the White House at the rightwing Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, to an effusive reception. Trump claims, entirely falsely, that he actually won the 2020 election but was fraudulently denied his victory.
The theme of the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference is “America Uncanceled.” But this week, just days before CPAC was set to kick off in Orlando, Florida, conference organizers announced they’d had to cancel one of their own scheduled speakers. “We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed reprehensible views that have no home with our conference or our organization,” CPAC organizers tweeted Monday, referring to right-wing social media figure Young Pharaoh.
The Washington Post on Thursday denounced online abuse that targeted one of its reporters after a photo of her speaking with Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) was shared on Twitter. The attacks on White House correspondent Seung Min Kim came after Huffington Post reporter Igor Bobic on Wednesday shared a photo of Kim showing Murkowski a tweet from Neera Tanden, President Biden's nominee for Office of Management and Budget director, in which Tanden criticized Murkowski.
