Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene on Monday complained that she is receiving heat from MAGA fanatics because she supported Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) instead of Trump for House Speaker.
Greene’s whining came during an interview with right-wing host Charlie Kirk on the MAGA-oriented Real America’s Voice network.
Greene responded to an angry viewer who wanted to know why she had not opposed McCarthy like other staunch conservatives in the Freedom Caucus.
“I just also need to remind everyone, while people are mad at me, President Trump endorsed and supported Kevin McCarthy,” Greene said in response to an angry viewer who wanted to know why she had not opposed McCarthy like other staunch conservatives in the Freedom Caucus.
“Jim Jordan endorsed, supported, voted for and nominated Kevin McCarthy. So, people that are overly mad at me, I shouldn’t be your punching bag,” she added.
“Be very clear-eyed about what this is and I’ll continue to prove exactly who I am through my actions and not my words and emails, social media posts and interviews on television.”
