TWITTER FEUD: Latest round between Taylor Greene and Ocasio-Cortez gets heated

TWITTER FEUD: Latest round between Taylor Greene and Ocasio-Cortez gets heated

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) just gave Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) the Twitter slap-down she deserves. After Greene tried – and failed – to equate AOC’s speech to pro-choice protesters outside of the Supreme Court to an insurrection. The new York Congresswoman not so kindly reminded the pardon-seeking member of the Sedition Caucus what an “actual” insurrection is. And not so vaguely labeling Greene as “heinous” in the process.

The loud-mouthed representative who gave us space lasers, “peach tree dishes”, and “gazpacho police” may want to sit this one out, particularly in light of testimony in the latest televised hearings from the House Select Committee on January 6th that revealed Greene as one of seven House Republicans who sought pardons before Trump left office. The investigation also revealed text messages that were exchanged between Greene and then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on insurrection day.

While voters in Greene’s district filed a lawsuit to ban her from seeking re-election for her role in the January 6th Capitol riot – a role that Greene sought a pardon for – AOC led a call and response with pro-choice protesters of “Illegitimate!” and “Into the streets!” The acts of attempting to overthrow the government and exercising your First Amendment right aren’t the same, Marge.

The Bronx, NY Congresswoman hasn’t been shy about her feelings regarding the Supreme Court ruling. Ocasio-Cortez called out Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AL), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Joe Manchin (D-WV) — whose votes put Trump’s less than-qualified nominees on the court — asking for their reactions to the ruling that set women’s rights back over 50 years.

In March AOC put Marge in her place (again), related to Greene’s purchase of stock in defense contractor Lockheed Martin a day before tweeting about it. Banning members of Congress from trading stocks has been a hotly debated topic pushed by Progressives in the House and Senate.

And in September 2020, five months before Greene would be permanently banned from Twitter, she swung – and missed – an attempt to criticize Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s intellect. Saying, “she has single handily put an end to all ‘dumb blonde’ jokes”, and that “Blondes everywhere appreciate your service and your sacrifice.” Of course, Ocasio-Cortez wasted no time in responding to Greene’s less than funny attempt to take a dig.

Oooh, sick burn!

After getting owned by AOC for nearly two years, you’d think Marge would know better. But then again, coming from a woman who believes Donald Trump was the best President ever and that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, it’s not a surprise that she doesn’t.
