The gloves came off on the House floor Wednesday as the feud between Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene and Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert escalated to name-calling.
The two MAGA minion, conspiracy theory and bigotry spewing women used to be thick as thieves, but Greene hitched her wagon to Speaker Kevin McCarthy while Boebert is clinging to Florida GOP Representative Matt Gaetz.
The Daily Beast cited anonymous sources in reporting MTG called Boebert a " nasty little bitch" to her face on the House floor after their months-long beef.
According to Semafor, MTG's inflammatory remark was due to Boebert's comments earlier in the day over their dueling efforts trying to impeach Democratic President Joe Biden.
In January 2021, MTG introduced impeachment articles against Biden, allegedly "for abuse of power by enabling bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors" and then another in May that included an accusation of Biden failing to secure the southern border.
Boebert recently introduced her own impeachment articles but managed to force a vote by fast-tracking her "privileged resolution."
MTG was infuriated by Boebert essentially leapfrogging ahead of her, which led to MTG using the slur against her fellow rightwinger.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, MTG accused Boebert of copying her articles instead of coming up with her own impeachment efforts and then manipulating her way ahead of her.
The Georgia Congresswoman said:
“I was sitting down, and so I stood up and I said, ‘I'm happy to clarify my public statements to your face'."
“I told her exactly what I think about her.”
Twitter face-palmed over the clown show.
She also said of Boebert's impeachment efforts:
“It’s purely for fundraising."
"It's throwing out red meat so that people will donate to her campaign because she's coming up on the end of the month, and she's trying to produce good fundraising numbers.”
Boebert spoke up against MTG's claim of being a copycat.
Boebert told the Huffington Post:
“I’m not in middle school. This isn’t a copycat game."
"Copying her would be her going and demanding a vote on the floor, and then me going and doing it right after."
When Semafor asked MTG if there was any chance of a reconciliation after the explosive confrontation, she said, "Absolutely not," and repeated the obscenity.
The member of Congress said:
“She has genuinely been a nasty little bitch to me."
Neither of their resolutions to impeach Biden has gained much traction.
