WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green (Q-GA) has a lot of time on her hands, despite being an elected official. When she was stripped of all her committee assignments earlier this year after past social media comments she made about killing Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), supporting QAnon, and a conspiracy about a secret Jewish space laser surfaced, it gave Ms. Greene a lot of freedom in her work schedule.
Since that time, Greene has largely been performing various stunts, seeking attention. One such stunt has been Qongresswoman Greene’s attempts to drag fellow Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) into a debate on the Green New Deal. A couple of months ago, Greene publicly challenged Ocasio-Cortez, known as “AOC” around the world. As Not Really News reported, however, AOC rebuffed Greene’s invitation.
Ocasio-Cortez suggested that Greene debate someone more her intellectual equivalent.
“While Rep. Greene’s offer is surely enticing — who doesn’t like arguing with a ham salad in a designer dress after, all,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters as she returned from lunch, “I’m going to have to decline the invitation. Anybody who wants to get the same vibe, though, is free to watch the Washington Generals debate the Harlem Globetrotters on the basketball court. Maybe Marjorie should punch her weight and debate a potato instead.” (NRN)
A new report surfaced today that indicates Greene is not content to debate a potato. According to reports, Greene once again confronted Ocasio-Cortez about a debate while the two women were on the House floor. Reportedly, Greene was so aggressive it alarmed Ocasio-Cortez, and her staff called capitol security.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) lambasted Greene, a member of his own party, for her inability to “handle [her] emotions.”
While I may not agree with @AOC on issues, I’ve never seen her confront a colleague like this. The house was created to debate emotional issues professionally, and it seems some just want attention or cannot handle their emotions. https://t.co/QtKV8qnAqH

Never one to shy away from social media attention and confrontation, Greene shot back at Kinzinger, calling him “Little Adam” in a very Trumpian way. Greene has also taken to calling Ocasio-Cortez “Sandy,” perhaps thinking that “Alexandria” would naturally shorten to “Sandy.” We note that Greene’s love of crack cocaine makes anything possible, and when we have more clarity on why she chose “Sandy” as AOC’s trolling nickname, we’ll update this story.
.@AOC “Ms. Defund The Police” wants to call the police for security bc she’s afraid of debating with me about her socialist GND.
AOC is a fraud & a hypocrite.
That’s fine Sandy.
Since you lack the courage & intelligence to debate me, I’ll debate the person who really wrote it.

After a morning in which she did actual work, and not just preening and parading for right-wing media outlets, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez finally responded to Greene’s continued harassment and trolling. In a brief statement to the press, AOC acknowledged Greene’s debate challenge, but politely turned it down once more. Ocasio-Cortez said that Greene is “entitled to ask for a debate as much as she wants,” but that there’s “one simple factor” that keeps the New York congresswoman from accepting the challenge.
“I don’t negotiate or debate with domestic terrorists, Margo,” Ocasio-Cortez’s statement reads. “I’m so very sorry to disappoint you, but something tells me you’ll find some other way to occupy your time while you suck off the taxpayers’ teat. If at any point you want to denounce the January 6th insurrectionists, we still won’t debate, but it’ll help soften your image of a wild-eyed, bleach blonde crackhead domestic terrorist in training into a slightly less crazy, wild-eyed, bleach blonde crackhead domestic terrorist in training.”
The hamster on the wheel in Rep. Greene’s brain had not produced a response to Ocasio-Cortez by the time of publication.
