Greene calls fellow Republican ‘trash’ of GOP conference
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) blasted Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) after Mace criticized Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) for an anti-Muslim remark Boebert made about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
Mace “is the trash in the GOP Conference. Never attacked by Democrats or RINO’s (same thing) because she is not conservative, she’s pro-abort,” Greene said in a tweet posted on Tuesday morning, using an acronym for “Republican in name only.”
Greene told Mace she “can back up off of” Boebert or “just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad,” a reference to a remark Boebert made earlier this month while criticizing Omar, a Muslim, on the House floor.
And, while I’m correcting you, I’m a pro-life fiscal conservative who was attacked by the Left all weekend (as I often am) as I defied China while in Taiwan.
What I’m not is a religious bigot (or racist). You might want to try that over there in your little “league.” https://t.co/nIbqjiJaFH

“Make no mistake, I will continue to fearlessly put America first, never sympathizing with terrorists. Unfortunately, Ilhan can’t say the same thing. And our country is worse off for it,” she said in a video statement posted to social media.
Omar, after the call, said she hung up on Boebert after the Republican “refused to publicly acknowledge her hurtful and dangerous comments. She instead doubled down on her rhetoric and I decided to end the unproductive call.”
