Rep Cori Bush Moves Office After Harassment from Greene & Her Staff
Marjorie Taylor Greene can’t stay off her phone, which is bad for her. Not only has she been caught on camera harassing Parkland survivor David Hogg, but videos she’s made with violent and racist content have been making the rounds on social media. Greene put out a statement on her personal Twitter account saying she has no plans to resign from Congress despite loud calls for her removal.
Now Greene is trying to diffuse another controversy that’s emerged along with her past of making racial threats. Representative Cori Bush of Missouri tweeted on Friday that she and her staff have moved her office due to an incident with Greene and her staff a week after the lockdown on January 6th during the Capitol insurrection, which Greene has been strongly and credibly accused of helping plan.
Even after several members of the House had tested positive for COVID-19, Greene and her staff were walking unmasked behind her. Bush tweeted a full statement regarding what happened after that.
On Jan. 13 — after members tested positive for COVID-19 after being locked down with her on Jan. 6 — Marjorie Taylor Greene came up from behind me, loud and unmasked. I called out to her to put hers on.
Her staff yelled at me, “Stop inciting violence with Black Lives Matter.” pic.twitter.com/GtN5AmGrkO

An aide for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., confirmed to NBC News that Bush’s office had been reassigned. “This room assignment change was by the direct order of the Speaker,” the aide told NBC.

Bush said that she has “called for the expulsion of members who incited the insurrection from Day 1.” Greene immediately recorded a video to try to diffuse the story, but it only served to make her look worse as she attempted to silence a Black woman accusing her of racism.
Rep. @CoriBush is the leader of the St. Louis Black Lives Matter terrorist mob who trespassed into a gated neighborhood to threaten the lives of the McCloskey’s.
She is lying to you. She berated me.

Greene presents a completely different energy on her government account, where it’s as if no one has accused her of all of the things she’s guilty of and she shows off another maskless superspreader event in her district.
What a great week!!
Thank you to all of the wonderful people of Northwest Georgia who came out to my town halls in Rome, Dalton, and Dallas.

Twitter users who aren’t blocked on her personal account let her know they were on Bush’s team as both #ExpelGreene and #MarjorieManson began trending late Friday afternoon.
Fuck Marjorie Taylor Greene. How is she not in prison? How is she not being forced to flee the country? https://t.co/aBO7KofFux

Rep. Cori Bush had to move offices because of white supremacy and the failure to hold it accountable. Call this what it is.
