Greene Spars with CNN: ‘You’re a Liar’
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) exchanged verbal jabs with CNN’s Jim Acosta over questions about her text messages in the aftermath of Jan. 6, 2021.
Greene shared a video on Twitter, showing Acosta walking with her outside the Capitol, asking if she remembered calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) a traitor.
“You know Jim, you have a show, and, in all fairness, you try to present this image of me to your viewers and it’s just really not correct,” Greene says in the video.
Acosta then says he’s “just trying to get some answers.” The CNN anchor asks Greene if she sent “a text in asking for the president to declare martial law.”
“I don’t recall those being my text messages,” Greene responded.
“Why don’t you be honest?” Acosta asked.
“You’re just another one of those liars on television,” Greene said. “And people hate it, they hate it. They can’t stand the liars on television.”
“You’re lying. You’re a liar. You know why people don’t like you?” Greene asked. “Because you’re a liar. Why do you want to lie on television for your viewers?”
Acosta responded to Greene’s tweet, writing “The congresswoman doesn’t recall if it’s her text but she defends it.”
