Marjorie Taylor Greene Picks Fight With Fellow GOP Rep. Over Ukraine Aide, Gets Pummeled In Response

On Wednesday, Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene got more than what she bargained for when she decided to publicly attack fellow GOP lawmaker Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) for voting “yes” on a bipartisan bill to aid Ukraine.

Greene lashed out at Crenshaw on Twitter after the Texas representative replied to a right-wing account attacking him for voting on the bipartisan $40 billion aid package to Ukraine, which among other things supplies weapons and economic assistance to the war-torn country, and funding to address global food shortages caused by the disruption of Ukraine’s agriculture industry.

“Investing in the destruction of our adversaryโ€™s military, without losing a single American troop, strikes me as a good idea. You should feel the same,” Crenshaw told the critic.

Crenshaw’s reply triggered an unprovoked attack from Greene, who wrote: “So you think we are funding a proxy war with Russia? You speak as if Ukrainian lives should be thrown away, as if they have no value. Just used and thrown away. For your proxy war? How does that help Americans? How does any of this help?”

In response, Crenshaw accused Greene of spreading Russian propaganda.

“Still going after that slot on Russia Today huh?” he tweeted.

As expected, other users piled on. See some of the responses below:
