MTG, Dem 'Talk Sh*t' At Garland Hearing

During the House Oversight Committee hearing on Thursday evening, Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) shot nasty remarks at each other.

The hearing got off to a rocky start regarding why everyone was meeting — committee members were discussing whether to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt — and why so late in the day. Greene asked committee Democrats if any of them was employing Judge Juan Merchan’s daughter, alluding to the New York hush money trial former President Donald Trump faces.

Crockett responded by asking what that had to do with Garland, asking Greene if she knew what they were meeting for. “I think your fake eyelashes are messing up your reading,” Greene shot back.

When Crockett was given time to speak, she alluded to Greene having a “bleach blonde, bad-built, butch body.” Crockett smiled after her remark, and a shouting match ensued. Luna told the Texas Democrat to calm down.

“Don’t tell me to calm down,” Crockett demanded. “Because if I come and talk s*** about her, y’all are going to have a problem.”

Oversight Democrats were upset that the hearing was pushed until the evening Thursday due to a handful of Republicans on the committee going to Manhattan to support Trump in his trial.
