GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger, of Illinois, slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for “begging” pro-Trump congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene to help him maintain his “power” in the lower Chamber.

Kinzinger’s criticism of McCarthy came after the far-right Georgia Republican tweeted that she just had “a good call with” McCarthy, saying she liked his future plans.

“I just got off a good call with @GOPLeader,” Green wrote. “We spent time talking about solving problems not only in the conference, but for our country. I like what he has planned ahead,” she added.

Kinzinger quickly responded to Greene’s Twitter post. “Hahahhahahahhaa I bet,” Kinzinger wrote.

“Here is real strength, when Kevin McCarthy has to call a freshman begging for permission to stay in power. What has Kevin promised? The people deserve to know @GOPLeader ?” the Illinois Republican added in a follow-up tweet.

“Ask some of the normal members when they last talked to Kevin? Been a while for most,” he also wrote.

In an interview with Matt Gaetz during the Thursday episode of his podcast, Greene blasted McCarthy’s leadership. “We know that Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference. He doesn’t have the full support to be speaker,” she said.

“He doesn’t have the votes that are there, because there’s many of us that are very unhappy about the failure to hold Republicans accountable, while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar, and many others just constantly take the abuse by the Democrats,” Greene complained.

Then on Friday, Greene posted to Twitter touting what she described as a “good” conversation with the House Minority Leader.
