Reacting to a 38-minute video that was unearthed by CNN on Friday that shows QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Capitol Hill in 2019 stalking U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and vandalizing her visitor’s book, the New York Democrat told reporters that Greene is “deeply unwell and clearly needs help.”
“This is a woman that’s deeply unwell. And clearly needs help. And her kind of fixation has lasted for several years now,” AOC said Friday, CNN’s Manu Raju reports. “At this point I think the depth has raised concerns for other members as well.”
The disturbing video shows Greene saying “We’re going to go see, we’re going to visit, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Crazy eyes. Crazy eyes. Nutty. Cortez.”
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, I’m an American citizen. I pay your salary through the taxes that you collect for me through the IRS because I’m a taxpaying citizen of the United States,” Greene says.
“So you need to stop being a baby and stop locking your door and come out and face the American citizens that you serve,” she says. “If you want to be a big girl, you need to get rid of your diaper and come out and be able to talk to the American citizens. Instead of having to use a flap, a little flap. Sad.”
In the same footage, Greene also talks about other members of “The Squad,” saying she wants to speak with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). Both Congresswomen are Muslim, and Greene says that “as a woman” she needs to talk to them because they support “Sharia,” and Greene doesn’t want to be forced to “wear a burka.”
Greene has come under fire for her antics and political stunts. Her latest verbal attack on Ocasio-Cortez drew widespread condemnation and promoted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call for an ethics investigation into the incident.
