Marjorie Taylor Greene Torches Matt Gaetz On Twitter

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) slammed Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) online following the drama that unfolded earlier this month during the battle for who would be the next Speaker of the House of Representatives.

The remarks from Greene come as the 48-year-old lawmaker has undergone an aggressive rebranding following her chaotic first days in office.

Greene’s efforts have resulted in her breaking away from the fringes of the party and becoming more of a team player, which has elevated her profile in the Republican Party.

Gaetz congratulated Greene for gaining spots on key committees after Democrats forced her off her committee assignments during her first term in Congress.

“Bravo @mtgreenee!” Gaetz tweeted. “She’s going to do amazing work for the people on these key committees she has EARNED. ‘Rep. MTG of Gerogia is back on committee assignments now that Republicans have retaken the House and the Rep. Gaetz-led revolt has put some steel in McCarthy’s spine.’”

Greene responded, “Thanks to @SpeakerMcCarthy & Steering for voting me on the committees I requested on the submission form most of us filled out.”

“Too bad we’re weeks behind after you spent a week only getting MTV from 5 to 1,” Greene continued. “As the leading MAGA voice in Congress, I look forward to committees.”

MTV stands for “motion to vacate.” It previously took multiple members of Congress to bring forward a motion to vote on the ousting of the Speaker of the House, but now it will only take a single member. According to NBC News, “The threshold for bringing a motion to vacate stayed at just a single member of Congress until 2019 when Democrats took the majority,” and raised the threshold.

Gaetz seemed stunned by Greene’s response, writing: “Well, we got a few other things but I’m thrilled the MTV is back to the pre-Pelosi standard. Totally worth it!”

“We the People will be in better hands with MTG holding the corrupt Biden Admin accountable via committee service,” he continued. “I’m so here for it.”

“The rules package did not change at all from Jan 1st to Jan 6th, except MTV went from 5 to 1,” Greene responded. “Literally anyone can read them online and see that. All substantial negotiations happened in conference & 5 families meetings before the 15 ballots starting on Jan 3rd.”
