MSNBC’s Ali Velshi Goes All the Way In On Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene
At this point, Donald Trump is the face of the Republican party. And it seems like that is how the GOP wants it. The success of the former NYC businessman has only led to more Trump-like candidates.
No two lawmakers represent that idea better than Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene. The two congresspeople are frequently controversial and currently on tour together. During a Saturday Tweetstorm, Ali Velshi ripped into the duo as the worst the GOP has to offer.
The host began, “Republican leaders threatening members of Congress for…acting like members of Congress. Pelosi *did* offer a seat on the committee to Liz Cheney, who, while she remains a committed conservative, put country before party and accepted the job. McCarthy reacted, saying Cheney’s actions were ‘shocking.’ Shocking? Taking a seat on a Congressional Committee, investigating an attack on Congress? Cheney has a responsibility to this country. NOT to the former insurrectionist-in-chief and the Big Lie that continues to damage this nation.”
Velshi continued, “Marjorie Taylor Greene, maybe? Who blamed wildfires on Jewish space lasers and says 9/11 was an inside job. Or maybe it’s Matt Gaetz who’s under federal investigation in a sex trafficking probe – allegations he denies. Anyone who says we shouldn’t get to the bottom of this…well, you’re complicit in one of the ugliest stains on American history.”

We are witnessing an active cover-up on Capitol Hill. The leaders of the Republican party are no longer just playing dumb when it comes to the January 6th insurrection – they are openly trying to mask a deadly attack on our democracy. #velshi
