Robert Garcia—a newly elected gay lawmaker who successfully ran to represent California's 42nd District in the House of Representatives—trolled Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene with a viral video demonstrating how he intends to walk past her at orientation.

Garcia posted a now-viral video of television personality Nene Leakes sashaying while wearing a pair of high heels.

He captioned the video with the following message:

"As a reminder this will be me when I walk by Marjorie Taylor Greene in the Capitol next week at orientation."

You can see Garcia's post—and the video—below.

Garcia is the current mayor of Long Beach, California. His term ends next month, after which he will take on his new role as Representative.

He is both the city's youngest and first elected openly LGBTQ+ mayor and several years ago married his longtime boyfriend, California State University, Long Beach professor Matthew Mendez.

His post was his own way of trolling one of the most vocally homophobic members of Congress and Twitter users loved every minute.

Greene is one of the more vocally anti-LGBTQ+ members of Congress.

In March, she was criticized after she launched into an attack against Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten, demanding they “stay out of our girls' bathrooms" and suggested that they are both sexual predators. She has attacked him numerous times since.

Greene also has a history of dehumanizing transgender people.

She made headlines last year after she raised the anti-trans flag outside her office, which happens to sit directly across from the office of Representative Marie Newman, an Illinois Democrat. Earlier, Newman had raised a trans flag to support her transgender daughter following a contentious debate about the Equality Act, which Greene opposed.

Greene's behavior drew bipartisan criticism, including from Republicans who'd earlier voted to strip her of her committee assignments after she made anti-Semitic remarks and promoted violence against Democrats.

She recently garnered significant criticism after she melted down after someone vandalized an anti-transgender sign she displays outside her office, referring to the culprits as "crazy and deranged."
