A pair of right-wing reporters covering Donald Trump’s rally for Pennsylvania GOP candidates Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano left Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) hanging mid-sentence when they saw the gubernatorial candidate arrive at the event and people started flocking his way.
The Georgia congresswoman was being interviewed by reporters from the conservative Right Side Broadcasting Network when Mastriano arrived at the scene. She was preaching campaign tactics and running through a litany of right-wing talking points when one of the RSBN reporters broke off from Greene and ran over to try to catch Mastriano, calling out to him by name.
“Oh,” Greene said as the other reporter broke off and ran toward Mastriano.
Greene spoke later that night at the rally, repeating Trump’s fraudulent claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
For his part, Trump spent a rambling two hours in which he raged about the FBI seizure of classified government documents from his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida and repeated claims that he won 2020 the election.
Trump told the crowd that he “ran twice, won twice.”
Of course, that claim has been debunked multiple times after several Republican-led vote audits efforts confirmed that Joe Biden won the 2020 election.
