A non-public feud between two U.S. lawmakers made a touch on social media this week within the fallout of Congress vote casting to take away Rep. Ilhan Omar from a committee, with each officers swinging accusations on the different.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene took to Twitter Thursday to accuse her colleague, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, of being a “coward” and mendacity about her on nationwide tv.
The Democratic lawmaker abruptly fired again, accusing the Republican of failing to do her process in Congress by way of spending “almost no time” at her committee hearings.
“I have repeatedly asked you to debate me, but you have been a coward and can’t even respond,” tweeted Greene, R-Georgia. “But you go on CNN and lie about me.”

She added: “When are you going to be an adult and actually debate me on policy instead of run your mouth like a teenage girl?”
Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, replied: “Hey there! In case you forgot, we sit on the same committee, which debated for the first time this week. I don’t blame you if you forgot. You spent almost no time there.”
Greene personalised the feud in a next tweet, announcing Ocasio-Cortez, who was once a waitress and bartender prior to getting into public workplace, was once “not even good at that.”
“AOC has never put her degrees to work in the real world to find out half of what they teach you in college are theories that don’t work,” the Georgian wrote.

She added: “All she did was make a few drinks behind a bar, and she wasn’t even good at that, so she even makes bartenders look bad & I respect bartenders.”
While the 2 lawmakers ceaselessly to find themselves at odds, the latest Twitter tiff seems to have began when Ocasio-Cortez accused Greene of “regularly trafficking antisemitic conspiracy theories” and “inciting violence” in opposition to U.S. lawmakers.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene, who was engaging in 9/11 conspiracy theories, [House Speaker] Kevin McCarthy appointed her to the Homeland Security Committee,” the Democrat stated right through a dialogue about Republicans vote casting to take away her Democratic colleague, Rep. Ilhan Omar, from her place at the Foreign Relations Committee.
“So, there is really no consistency here,” she persevered. “It needs to be very well known that this targeting of Ilhan Omar is because the Republican base finds it easy… and politically self-rewarding.”
On Thursday, Congress licensed a answer to take away Omar from the Foreign Relations Committee, 218 to 211.
“Representative Omar, by her own words, has disqualified herself from serving on the Committee on Foreign Affairs, a panel that is viewed by nations around the world as speaking for Congress on matters of international importance and national security,” it stated, bringing up her earlier remarks about Israel and Jewish folks.

Omar and several other different Democrats, right through the talk for answer and after its passing, accused Republicans of racism.
“I am Muslim, I am an immigrant, and interestingly, from Africa,” Omar stated. “Is anyone surprised that I am being targeted? Is anyone surprised that I am somehow deemed unworthy to speak about American foreign policy, or that they see me as a powerful voice that needs to be silenced?”
Republicans, together with Greene, have claimed Omar’s previous feedback make her wrong to serve at the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
While serving in Congress, Omar has accused some Jewish Americans of getting “allegiance to a foreign country,” which was once perceived as antisemitic.
A month later, Omar looked as if it would downplay the 9/11 terrorist assaults in New York, which killed just about 3,000 folks, as “some people did something.”
In 2021, Omar often known as Israel an “apartheid state,” and looked as if it would liken the U.S. and Israel at the side of terror teams Hamas and the Taliban as political entities that experience dedicated “unthinkable atrocities.”
