Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) seemingly hasn’t forgiven her a single-time pal Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) for going from her in the House speaker election.
Gaetz, who led the suitable-wing alliance that blocked Kevin McCarthy’s speakership for 14 rounds of voting, on Wednesday wrote a cheery message congratulating Greene on her committee assignments.
“Bravo,” Gaetz tweeted. “She’s heading to do amazing get the job done for the persons on these vital committees she has Attained.”
Greene, who broke from her common allies to aid McCarthy’s speakership ― properly guaranteeing her return to committee assignments she’d been stripped of in 2021 in excess of violent and racist rhetoric ― threw it back again in Gaetz’s facial area.
“Too bad we’re weeks guiding immediately after you used a 7 days only obtaining MTV from 5 to 1,” she tweeted back, referring to the “motion to vacate” rule adjust McCarthy agreed to protected the assist of his Republican opponents. Underneath the new rule, only one particular member of Congress is needed to bring a movement to vacate, forcing a vote to get rid of the speaker.
“As the main MAGA voice in Congress, I appear forward to committees,” Greene included.
Gaetz followed up with an additional friendly tweet.
“Well, we received a handful of other things, but I’m thrilled the MTV is again to the pre-Pelosi regular,” he wrote. “Totally worthy of it! We, the Men and women, will be in improved arms with MTG keeping the corrupt Biden Admin accountable by way of committee services. I’m so here for it.”
It did not appease Greene:
Greene is serving on the House Oversight Committee and Homeland Stability Committee. She has also been publicly feuding with a further lawmaker with whom she’s typically aligned, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), around the latter’s opposition to McCarthy.
