Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert, Republicans who represent Georgia and Colorado respectively, reportedly nearly came to blows when the House Freedom Caucus board of directors gathered for a meeting last month.

According to Politico, which broke the story, Greene and Boebert got into a verbal argument that forced another member of the Freedom Caucus to separate the pair and deescalate the situation.

Boebert apparently hates being regularly connected to Greene and criticized Greene for speaking at a White nationalist rally in February.

Greene stoked controversy a couple of months ago after news outlets reported she and fellow Republican Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona had not only attended but been featured speakers at the third annual America First Political Action Conference, which has widely been identified as a White nationalist organization.

The argument between Greene and Boebert—two of the most vocal and controversial Republicans in the House—according to those who witnessed it, indicates the Republican party is disordered. They noted the Freedom Caucus, generally considered to be the most conservative bloc within the House Republican Conference, will have a difficult time reaching its goals.

According to Tennessee Republican Representative Scott DesJarlais, who spoke to Politico, if Republicans "can’t work together as a group and push our ideas in a civil manner, then we’re not going to be very effective."

The news there is significant friction between Greene and Boebert made waves across social media.

Many criticized them as well as the Republican party at large.

While more of the details about the confrontation between Greene and Boebert are not immediately clear, they have often been associated with each other because they've tended to fall in line about the same political topics, most notably COVID-19 restrictions, vaccine mandates, and the falsehood that the 2020 general election was stolen.

Both congresswomen are currently under investigation for the role they played on January 6, 2021, the day a mob of former President Donald Trump's supporters attacked the seat of government in a bid to overturn the electoral certification of Democrat Joe Biden's win.

Despite being subject to considerable scrutiny, both have continued to promote baseless conspiracies, behavior that has often placed them at odds with the Biden administration and members of their own party.
