Marjorie Taylor Greene Hits Back After Being Attacked by Fox Host

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) denounced Fox News in response to a columnist characterization of her as “an idiot” who “wrecks the GOP.”

In her op-ed published on FoxNews.com last month, contributor Liz Peek argued that Greene is detrimental to the party.

“The internal squabbles of the party need to stop. If Marjorie Taylor Greene and others want to oppose aid to Ukraine or the FISA bill, they can vote against it. That’s how democracy works. My message for MTG? Borrowing from Hillary Clinton: Get over yourself. The mission today is to elect Donald Trump.”  Peek wrote.

“Fox News called me an idiot. That was literally their headline. They called me an idiot. But what I’ve done is expose what was already happening in the dark.” Greene remarked during a recent appearance on Steve Bannon’s podcast.

Greene has declared her intention to challenge the leadership of House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) on several points, including the specifics of his strategy regarding foreign aid.

“The beautiful thing about it is Democrats have to come clean; they were controlling Mike Johnson anyway,” Greene said during her podcast appearance.
