Georgia Republican nominee for Congress Marjorie Greene appeared on Michelle Malkin’s Sovereign Nation show on Newsmax TV and she spoke to Malkin about the recent Twitter spat that she had with US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her plans after being elected.
She tweeted out that it was “great” being on the show and that “For too many years, Republicans have said one thing on the campaign trail, then do exactly the opposite once safely in office … I’m going to Congress to make sure Republicans do what they say they’re going to do!”

On the show, Taylor talked about she has owned and built a business compared to how AOC has a degree in economics from Boston University and she “takes her theories” into Congress.
Malkin asked about how “some of the people in the GOP establishment” have gone after Greene and that President Trump has not backed down from his endorsement of her.
Greene said that she is running for Congress because she “is not a political person.” She said that she “voted for him and supported him big time” in the 2016 presidential primary.
“In the first two years under President Trump when we had a Republican controlled Congress, I could not be any happier and I was hopefully waiting to see the things that Republicans had promised and that President Trump had campaigned on,” Greene continued.
“They all said they would repeal Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, they did not defund sanctuary cities and the list goes on and on. They passed the most expensive spending bill, $1.3T, in U.S. history and that was done under a Republican controlled Congress. I thought to myself, wait if these are our Republicans acting like this and doing these things under a president I absolutely adore and support 100%, we really have problems.” Greene added.
From The Washington Times:
Marjorie Taylor Greene and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are both women who go by three names … and don’t have much else in common.
The two women have spent the last two days jawing on Twitter, accusing each other of stupidity.
Mrs. Greene, the Republican candidate for a U.S. House seat in Georgia, began Sunday by “thanking” the New York Democrat for deflecting all the “dumb” jokes away from blondes like herself.
“As a blonde woman, I would like to take a moment to thank Congresswoman @AOC. She has single handily put an end to all ‘dumb blonde’ jokes. Blondes everywhere appreciate your service and your sacrifice!” Mrs. Greene wrote.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez fired back Monday and noted that the Republican had committed an intellectual faux pas while accusing someone else of stupidity.
“Don’t worry Mrs. Greene, I completely understand why you need to swing + miss at my intellect to make yourself feel better. You seem to have some trouble spelling your own insults correctly. Next time try ‘single-handedly,’ it’ll work better,” she wrote back at her.
She did “encourage” Mrs. Greene, who is almost certain to win her race and make it to the House because her Democratic opponent has dropped out of the race.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez concluded her tweet with “Good luck writing legislation!”
Mrs. Greene wasn’t impressed, beginning her reply with “@AOC please … no one cares about typos.”
“While you were growing up in socialist boot camp, I was creating 1000s of jobs, $250 million in revenue in 11 different states. Your Marxist GND will destroy millions of jobs. And I’m going to put it through the paper shredder,” she concluded.
