Adam Kinzinger Rips MTG After Video Shows Her Lackluster Reception At Christmas Parade

The outgoing GOP Rep. said he'd be a 'little worried' if he received the kind of reception Greene got at the Christmas parade in Dallas, Georgia.

Outgoing Illinois Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger criticized Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene after a video showed she received a rather lackluster reception at a Christmas parade in Dallas, Georgia.

Greene appeared excited to attend the event, telling her supporters in a video posted to Instagram she was happy to be there to "celebrate Christmas and the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!"

You can see her post below.

Another video she posted later included a Christmas light filter and is heavily edited as she is shown meeting with supporters.

But video of the event showed parade attendees were largely indifferent to the controversial Congressperson's presence.

No one appeared to wave back at Greene even as she walked and waved enthusiastically during the parade procession.

That video prompted Kinzinger—who has sparred with and criticized Greene numerous times over her commitment to election denial and assorted conspiracy theories—to observe the parade is a sign Greene could be falling out of favor with people in her district.

He wrote:

"As a guy that's done almost 100 of these, this kind of reception would have me very worried."

Many concurred with Kinzinger's assessment while offering their own criticisms of Greene.



Kinzinger issued his remarks as he winds down his career in Congress.

First elected to the House of Representatives in 2010, Kinzinger saw his national profile rise considerably due to his vocal opposition to former Republican President Donald Trump's claims of voter fraud and attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 general election, which he lost decisively to Democratic President Joe Biden.

Kinzinger took a leading role on the House Select Committee tasked with investigating the January 6 insurrection, the day a mob of Trump's supporters attacked the nation's seat of government on the false premise the election had been stolen.

Amid regular attacks and even threats from conservatives both inside and outside of Congress—including from Greene herself—Kinzinger announced last year that he would not seek re-election and will leave Capitol Hill.
