Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) insinuated that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is gay on Tucker Carlson’s Fox Nation program Wednesday night.
He’s dating Republican pollster Frank Luntz, the two laughed. Former President Donald Trump has been repeatedly chastised by Luntz.
With a long list of grievances and exaggerations, Greene told Carlson what she knew after visiting Washington, D.C., and witnessing the inner workings of Congress. When the topic turned to McCarthy, Carlson couldn’t help but try to outdo her.
“Were you shocked to learn they share a toothbrush or are roommates or whatever?” he asked.
“I was more curious, like, who gets the top bunk and who gets the bottom bunk,” she replied.
McCarthy’s office said in a statement earlier this week that his living arrangements with Luntz are just temporary.
“Because of the pandemic, McCarthy has rented a room in Washington at a fair market price from Frank,” the statement said.
The newly revealed living arrangement drew criticism because Luntz is a lobbyist.
In Congress, Greene has been at the forefront of the anti-LGBTQ agenda. She co-sponsored an anti-trans bathroom bill and proposed a bill prohibiting the rainbow flag from flying at US embassies.
She introduced a series of motions to adjourn Congress just as it was debating the Equality Act, which would prohibit anti-LGBTQ discrimination. The resolutions didn’t pass, but they forced her peers to vote on futile motions and took up over an hour of debate time in order to make the case that LGBTQ discrimination should be legal. In a speech, she called the Equality Act “DISGUSTING, IMMORAL, AND EVIL.”
Greene, whose political career began with a demonstration against Drag Queen Story Hours, held a sign that read, “There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE.” Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL) put up a transgender flag outside her office, prompting the response, “Trust the Science!” Newman has a transgender girl.
Democratic Arizona Rep. Ruben Gallego recently had enough of Greene’s controversial comments and told her to “shut your seditious, Qanon-loving mouth” after Greene claimed that Democrats are attempting to destroy America “from within.”
This issue began on May 2 after Greene tweeted, “Democrat policies are destructive and #AmericaLast. Dem shutdowns killed 100’s of thousands of small businesses. Dem open borders grow cartel businesses to $400 million per month. And Democrat-funded BLM/Antifa riots have cost BILLIONS in damage. Democrats are the enemy within.”
Greene failed to note any sources for her claims.
Gallego quickly responded with, “I was trying to figure what type of pen to stab your friends with if they overran us on the floor of the House of Representatives while trying to conduct a democratic transition of power. So please shut your seditious, Qanon-loving mouth when it comes to who loves America.”
Greene has consistently reiterated former President Donald Trump’s unfounded allegations that he lost the 2020 election due to a widespread conspiracy of voter fraud. On the congressional floor, she wore a face mask proclaiming “Trump won.” She also opposed the election’s formal certification by Congress of now-President Joe Biden as the winner.
Back on December 30, 2020, Greene tweeted, “I refuse to certify a stolen election. It is the duty of Congress to secure the integrity of our elections. On Jan. 6th, I will #FightForTrump.”
There was no proof of systematic voter fraud that “stole” the election from Trump, according to his own election protection agency, his Department of Justice, and over 60 court cases involving judges he named.
