Dem Rep Burns MTG With Her Own Merchandise After She Shouts About 'Terrorist' Border Apprehensions

Rep. Seth Magaziner shut Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's fearmongering about so-called 'terrorist' crossing the border by citing her own 'De-fund the FBI' merchandise.

During a Tuesday meeting of the House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee, Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene presented arguments for the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Greene began her remarks by stating:

"Let's talk about border patrol apprehensions between ports of entry at the Southwest border of terrorist [sic]."

However, Rhode Island Representative Seth Magaziner had a very effective rebuttal for Greene's complaints.

A rebuttal that clearly amused his fellow committee member, Michigan Democratic Representative Shri Thanedar.

Representative Magaziner—while showing Greene's merchandise website on his phone—said:

"I have to say it is pretty rich hearing the gentlewoman from Georgia express her concern about terrorism when she literally was selling 'defund the FBI' t-shirts and hats on her website for $30 apiece."


The Rhode Island Democrat added:

"$30 for the shirts and another $30 for the hats—you don't get both for just the $30—the leading law enforcement agency tasked with combating terrorism in this country and keeping people safe, and she wants to defund it."

Magaziner concluded:

"So I am not going to take any lectures from her on securing this homeland from terror."

You can watch the moment here:

Others were equally critical of Greene's committee performance.

Magaziner wasn't alone in calling out Republican hypocrisy.

New York Democratic Representative Dan Goldman stated:

"When the secretary and the administration have tried to use their limited authority to change policy, to limit the number of people coming to the border, to streamline the process to make it go through ports of entry, Republicans filed lawsuits to stop the administration from doing it."
"So again, the hypocrisy of you sitting here accusing Secretary Mayorkas of failing to enforce the law, when you are going to court to prevent him from enforcing the law is hypocrisy at its height."
"You have created this situation."
"And now you want to have the second impeachment of a cabinet secretary ever. You let him do his job. You work with the Senate, your colleagues in the Senate on the legislation needed and then let's figure out how to address the border."

New Jersey Democratic Representative Rob Menendez called out the Republican led committee for its own inaction.

"We have held zero full committee hearings dedicated to emergency preparedness, cyber threats, infrastructure protection, transportation security, Department of Homeland Security management."

As expected, the House Homeland Security Committee voted along party lines—11-9—to bring two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to a vote of the full House.

Nikki Haley's Blunt 'Election' Prediction Comes Back To Haunt Trump After Biden Drops Out

Earlier this year, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley made a blunt prediction about which political party would win this year's election, a statement that has garnered more attention since President Joe Biden dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris.

At 81, Biden faced increasing concerns within his party about his age and capacity to serve another term, along with fears of a potential loss to former President Donald Trump—who is 78—in November. In his announcement, Biden backed Harris as the Democratic nominee to replace him, calling it "the best decision I’ve made."
