[WATCH] McCarthy Secretly Assigned Babysitter for Greene
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Q-CA) still fears publicly criticizing some of the extremist members of his caucus and, behind the scenes, has assigned a staff member to advise Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Q-GA) on how to dig herself out after she goes too far with her “inflammatory comments”, as he categorizing her tweets where she compared vaccinations to the Holocaust.
One of McCarthy’s top advisers was involved in a behind-the-scenes effort to rehabilitate Greene’s tarnished reputation. The adviser facilitated Greene’s visit to the Holocaust Memorial from last month after which she publicly apologized for her anti-semitic remarks, but clearly didn’t learn anything from the experience as she called healthcare workers administering COVID vaccinations ‘brownshirts’.
Of course, there’s no silencing Greene, a new favorite of the Florida Retiree’s thanks to her constant fangirling. As long as she’s still in Congress and allowed to tweet, Greene is going to speak first and never apologize later.
Perfect assessment by CNN's @secupp just now: "There's no point in [McCarthy] rehabbing someone like Marjorie Taylor Greene. She's not a rehab project, she's a tear down. Get rid of it." 👏🏼

You can’t change someone who thinks there’s nothing wrong with what they’re doing, no matter how many of their colleagues write a letter to her party leader begging him to get rid of her.
Nearly 40 House Democrats are demanding Kevin McCarthy take what they call "immediate action" to address the behavior of Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, whose actions, they say, "could lead to violence against members of Congress." https://t.co/Q2r6zlG1pF

In discussing Greene’s Mean Girl ways on CNN, anchors Brianna Keilar and Melanie Zanona make it clear that they know exactly what kind of sociopathy we’re witnessing. Zanona rightly pointed out that “Liz Cheney was kicked out of leadership early this year for her repeated criticism of Trump and Democrats say that’s a clear double standard. McCarthy will not punish Greene and others who crossed the line.”
ICYMI: Every day that McCarthy refuses to hold Greene accountable — he is complicit in her dangerous actions.https://t.co/ZbWDNvAafA
