Marjorie Taylor Greene and Mitt Romney Are Engaged in a Twitter Feud
This week, a congresswoman from rural Georgia became the number one topic of conversation in Washington DC. Marjorie Taylor Greene, however is gaining more infamy than actual fame or respect.
And the freshman lawmaker isn’t backing down despite heavy criticism. Some of that criticism is even coming from within her own party. Greene furiously shot back yesterday when she was slammed by Utah senator Mitt Romney.
Romney, of course, is a frequent critic of Donald Trump as well. The 2012 presidential candidate shared a tweet from MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin which read, “The Republican congresswoman from Georgia just tweeted that she has the support of Trump and that she spoke with him this morning.”
The Utah senator captioned his retweet, “Lies of a feather flock together: Marjorie Taylor Greene’s nonsense and the ‘big lie’ of a stolen election.”

Greene responded to Romney’s message, “‘Republican’ Senator Mitt Romney obviously cares nothing about the people’s number one concern. Please grow a pair or a spine.”

While Romney was willing to slam Greene, Republican leadership has largely avoided discussing her. In fact, the Georgia lawmaker was placed on a congressional committee this week. The controversy surrounding her will surely continue into the next week.
