Marjorie Taylor Greene says she was ‘attacked’ by ‘insane’ woman in restaurant

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said she was “attacked” by an “insane” woman in a restaurant on Monday night.

“I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son,” Greene said in a tweet. “They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views.”

“I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons,” Greene said.

A spokesperson for Greene said the woman initially “introduced herself politely” and then began “berating” the congresswoman, while her son “started screaming expletives at the top of his lungs and came closer.”

“I had to get in between him and the table because I had no clue what he’d do,” the spokesperson added.

The staff at the restaurant ultimately asked the individuals to leave, and police were not called.

“People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore,” Greene added in her tweet. “Our country is gone.”

Greene stirred up a political firestorm last week when she once again called for a “national divorce” between Republican and Democratic states. 

“We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government,” Greene tweeted at the time. “From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”

She made similar comments about a “National Divorce scenario” in December 2021, when she suggested that “Democrat voters and big donors” had brought “ruin” to California and shouldn’t be allowed to move to Florida without a “cooling off period.”

Greene has previously faced threats while serving in Congress.

A New York man pleaded guilty earlier this month to sending Greene several threatening voicemails last March, in which he said he was going to cause her “physical harm” and threatened to “pay someone 500 bucks to take a baseball bat and crack your skull.”
