Report: Two GOP Lawmakers Nearly Came to Blows
During a recent meeting with members of the House Freedom Caucus, Reps. Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene almost came to blows, according to Politico.
The lawmakers had a heated exchange over Greene’s appearance at an event hosted by far-right Nicholas Fuentes, and it may have escalated to a physical altercation had another lawmaker not intervened, Politico reported.
“It doesn’t matter if I’m speaking to Democrat union members or 1,200 young conservatives who feel cast aside and marginalized by society,” Greene said at the controversial event. “The Pharisees in the Republican Party may attack me for being willing to break barriers and speak to a lost generation of young people who are desperate for love and leadership.”
Greene’s appearance at the event drew backlash from some of her peers in the GOP, as Fuentes is accused of being a white nationalist, denying the Holocaust, and expressing admiration for the Taliban’s treatment of women.
Further details of the heated confrontation between Greene and Boebert are not immediately clear, but three individual sources close to the Freedom Caucus have confirmed the clash.
According to the report, Boebert loathes being associated with Greene and is seen as more of a team player within the GOP.
