Namecalling Continues in Greene’s Latest Squabble: ‘Bats—t Crazy’
Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) exchanged insults on Tuesday, with the pair hurling names like “trash” and “bats—t crazy.”
After Mace criticized Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for an anti-Muslim remark about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Greene blasted her on Twitter.
“[Mace] is the trash in the GOP Conference,” Greene wrote. “Never attacked by Democrats or RINO’s (same thing) because she is not conservative, she’s pro-abort.” RINO is an acronym for “Republican in name only.”
“Mace you can back up off of [Boebert] or just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad. Your out of your league,” she added.
Mace replied within minutes, starting her Tweet by correcting Greene’s spelling.
“And, while I’m correcting you, I’m a pro-life fiscal conservative who was attacked by the Left all weekend (as I often am) as I defied China while in Taiwan,” Mace wrote. “What I’m not is a religious bigot (or racist). You might want to try that over there in your little ‘league.'”
About an hour later, Mace posted another response to Greene’s insult. She quote-tweeted Greene’s initial post with a caption indicating the lawmaker’s words were an example of “bats—t crazy,” utilizing the bat, poop, and clown emojis.
When asked about the feud between Mace and Greene, Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, appeared to try to divert attention away from the social media spat.
“We are unified on the issues that matter to the American people, on making sure that we’re reining in our spending, to tackle inflation, on investing in border security. The issues that people care about are not the Twitter infighting. They care about issues that impact their daily lives. And that’s what Republicans are focused on,” Stefanik said.
