Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is calling Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) a “bitch” and using obscenities to criticize her colleagues in Congress.
Greene was upset with McConnell for agreeing to a deal with Senate Democrats to increase the debt ceiling, which is the legal limit on the amount of debt the US Treasury may take on to pay for obligations that have already been paid. If Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling, the government will default on its obligations.
The House of Representatives is voting after midnight tonight because @LeaderMcConnell allowed Democrats to bi-pass the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION.
Mitch is Biden’s bitch.

Republicans had threatened to filibuster the bill to raise the debt ceiling, but McConnell and other Senate Republicans opted to forego the filibuster for this bill, allowing it to pass with a simple majority rather than the required 60 votes. It passed the Senate on a 50-49 party-line vote last night.
Greene chastised McConnell for allowing “Democrats to bi-pass [sic] the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION.”
Greene made headlines recently after she alleged that Jan 6 defendants are being treated “worse” than terrorists as they await trial.
“They were beaten by the guards. They are referred to as white supremacists. They are prohibited religious services, haircuts, shaving, and the opportunity to clip their fingernails,” she stated during an event with Reps. Louis Gohmert of Texas, Matt Gaetz of Florida, and Paul Gosar of Arizona.
She said that Jan. 6 prisoners were being mistreated and abused worse than we treat terrorists at Gitmo, referring to the US military jail in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
“They are told that they have to denounce President Trump. They are told that their views are the views of cult members Even though these are men that every single night at 9:00 at night, they put their hand over their heart and sing the national anthem voluntarily,” she said.
Green, who had her committee assignments revoked by the House for past utterances concerning QAnon conspiracy theories, stated that convicts were being exposed to Critical Race Theory training and were being referred to as white supremacists by their own government-appointed attorneys. They were “mocked because of their political beliefs,” she said.
She reacted angrily when a reporter said he didn’t recall seeing her host a news conference for the “unusually cruel” treatment of Capitol Police officers, referring to the bear spray and weapons used by rioters against cops. Greene stated that she had spoken out against police brutality.
She further claimed that inmates were being “force-fed gluten meals” despite the fact that they had celiac disease, causing sickness and starvation. She mentioned on Steve Bannon’s podcast last month that a prisoner couldn’t acquire gluten-free food without paying an additional price.
She said that the defendants she dealt with were represented by public defenders who “hate them” and ‘inform them they have to repudiate their political ideas, want them to watch movies and study books that are essentially critical race theory training.’
“No one has been charged with insurrection,” Gohmert added, referring to individuals charged with different counts in connection with the disturbance
“In fact, if they were going to prosecute someone with insurrection, it’s starting to seem more like they would be federal government operatives who were there stirring things up, trying to encourage people to participate in violence,” he stated.
