Greene Contacts Capitol Police Over Late-Night Joke
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1886: William Ewart Gladstone introduces the first Irish Home Rule Bill into the British House of Commons.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said she reported late-night host Jimmy Kimmel to the Capitol Police for a joke he made about her on his show.
Greene posted a clip of Kimmel’s joke on Twitter with the caption, “This threat of violence against me by @jimmykimmel has been filed with the @CapitolPolice.”
In the clip, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host criticizes Greene for a tweet in which she called three Republican senators “pro-pedophile.”
“Marjorie Taylor Greene, this Klan mom, is especially upset with the three Republican senators who said they’ll vote ‘yes’ on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who’s nominated for the Supreme Court. She tweeted, ‘Murkowski, Collins, and Romney are pro-pedophile. They just voted for KBJ,” Kimmel said.
“Wow, where is Will Smith when you really need him?” Kimmel added, referring to Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars.
Kimmel responded to Greene, saying: “Officer? I would like to report a joke.”
