Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA) is resorting to obscenities to attack her Congressional colleagues, referring to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as a “bitch.”
Greene was complaining about how McConnell agreed to a deal with Senate Democrats to raise the debt ceiling or the legislative limit on the amount of debt the U.S. Treasury can take on to pay for bills that have already been incurred by the government. If Congress doesn’t vote to raise the debt ceiling, the government defaults on that debt.
Republicans have been threatening to filibuster the bill to raise the debt ceiling, but McConnell and other Senate Republicans agreed to bypass the filibuster for this bill so that it could pass with a simple majority instead of a 60-vote majority. It passed the Senate last night in a 50-49 vote along party lines.

Greene dragged and tagged McConnell on Twitter, saying he “allowed Democrats to bi-pass [sic] the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION. Mitch is Biden’s bitch.” Yes, a sitting member of Congress resorted to working blue while ignoring basic spelling.
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.

Twitter was already dragging Greene over her behavior on the House floor during the debate over the Mark Meadows resolution, so this just added to the piling on.

MTG you are a sitting member of congress elected to represent your constituents & this country. Your propensity for Jr. high name-calling is beneath the position you hold. The world is watching. Is this really the legacy you're proud to leave? Show some respect & basic manners.
