Say what you want about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, but one thing about the first-term Republican Congresswoman from Georgia that no one can dispute is that she does not back down from a fight, especially when she’s on the receiving end of an unprovoked attack.
A number of House Democrats and media figures have learned that the hard way over the last few months, including Illinois Rep. Marie Newman and so-called “reporters” from CNN. Suffering fools gladly simply is not her style.
The latest Democrat to learn that Greene has not morphed into a meek and timid freshman lawmaker after the House voted in February to strip her of her committee assignments was Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA), who many readers of this website will instantly recognize as someone who frequently starts fights that he either can’t (or is unable to) finish.
It all started on Wednesday after Greene challenged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to a debate about the Green New Deal. Greene declared that it would be in the best interests of the American people to hear both sides of the debate in order to make an informed decision on where to stand on it:
Swalwell ran away like the coward that he is, because what could he say in response outside of “I’m currently sitting on the House committees I am only through the grace of Speaker Pelosi, who chose to overlook the fact that I (reportedly) got caught having sexual relations with a Chinese spy”?
Rumor has it that, much like his failed efforts to have Trump barred from ever being able to run for president again, Swalwell couldn’t quite … finish that relationship, either.
But in the interests of keeping it clean (and because no one wants to hear the sordid details of what Swalwell may like to do in his spare time outside of the harsh glare of the spotlight), we won’t speculate any further on that particular matter.
