Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is trash. In fact, when actual trash was placed next to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the trash kept wondering what the hell that smell was.

It was Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s bullshit.

Greene is one of these people who believes that the 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., in which children were killed, was a hoax. She also believes all kinds of other crazy shit like a pizza place in Washington, D.C., is really a front for a pedophile ring. She probably believes that Yeezys have jumped over the Jumpman.

In short, if Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene walked outside wearing a tinfoil fedora, no one would be surprised. Not one person. And that is the beauty of Americaeveryone is entitled to believe whatever the fuck they want.

But Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene shouldn’t be a member of Congress. Hell, she probably shouldn’t even be a member of Costco.

Greene isn’t one of these people who quietly holds her beliefs; she’s one of those people who harasses the survivors of the Parkland shooting.

“On Wednesday, a video went viral of Greene berating activist David Hogg, a survivor of the 2018 Parkland school shooting, calling him a ‘coward’ and accusing him of being paid by George Soros, the liberal billionaire philanthropist,” the Washington Post reports.

She literally harassed Hogg for blocks, being a total fucking Karen, blathering about how she’s a gun owner and Hogg is trying to take away her second amendment rights. This coupled with the discovery of Greene liking Facebook posts calling for the deaths of members of Congress and her reportedly kicking a reporter out of a town hall meeting for asking a question of the congresswoman about all the crazy bullshit she’s been linked to was enough for several Democrats and a few Republicans to call for her resignation, while “House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said he planned to talk with Greene about what his spokesman called the “deeply disturbing” comments,” the Post reports.

Greene has dismissed the Facebook controversy as “fake news” and claims that the media is just trying to tear her down. Now, where have we heard this before?

Nick Dyer, a spokesman for Greene’s office, told the Washington Post in an email that the reporter shouldn’t have been asking questions at a question-asking event because this wasn’t the time for questions.

“This was a town hall for constituents,” Dyer said. “Not a press conference. Every attendee (besides media) was allowed to ask a question and Congresswoman Greene answered every question.”

But Greene isn’t all bad, as her crazy antics are all on the Republican side of the room, and they own her, whether they want to or not. Coming off the failed coup by Trump’s tyrants, Greene really isn’t the voice the GOP wants taking all the air out of the room, and yet here she is being as crazy as a shithouse rat, which she’s totally entitled to be, but they have a place for people like that in America and it’s called the White House. Wait, I mean the big house, or one of the houses but definitely not the House side of Congress.

I’m honestly not sure what Democrats are thinking here.

They have a minority party in government that is openly trying to kill them, openly goading their supporters to try to kill them, openly trying to overturn the results of an election to remove them from power, and Democrats want to... figure out how to work with them?

Republicans are fucking DESPERATE to avoid this impeachment trial. They’re trying to call it unconstitutional, they’re threatening to impeach previous Democratic Presidents (lol! What are they gonna do, prevent Obama from running again?), ANYTHING to prevent the trial from going forward. And what are Democrats doing?

Talking about trying to get through the trial as quickly as possible.

FUCK THAT SHIT SON.

You have THREE dead cops from a Capitol hill insurrection, dozens more injured cops, and a BOATLOAD of pissed off insurrectionists who feel abandoned because they didn’t get a pardon.

My ass would be scheduling impeachment trial EVERY DAY from 1-4, with about 400 witnesses, with officers and butt-hurt insurrectionists talking about the attempted coup every day. All day.

The media will call it the longest-running soap opera ever on CSPAN. I wouldn’t give a single fuck. Prime time that shit. Invite every news camera for 4,000 miles to sit in on witness interviews. Get that shit the fuck out there.

Pelosi is sitting there trying to figure out how to “work with” members of the GOP that are literally calling for her execution.

You know what happens when you try to find “middle ground” with nazis? Democrats be like, “We should come to some common ground about the government’s role in healthcare.” Republicans respond with, “You should all be dead.”

How do you compromise there? Some of us get healthcare, the rest get murdered?

Republicans, who spent the last 3 months refusing to acknowledge the results of an election, are now complaining about how Democrats won’t show “unity” with them. The only unity they’d accept is Biden resigning and appointing that last asshole for another term, and then they MIGHT consider that “an offer” for unity. Fuck Outta Here.

The American people handed Democrats a super majority because they want shit fixed. Either fix it or go the fuck home, Nancy.
