Marjorie Taylor Greene lashes out after Biden calls her ‘what’s her name’

On Friday, Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia expressed outrage at President Joe Biden after he called her “what’s her name.”

Greene and other Republicans who have canceled large Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, all well over $100,000, were targeted Thursday by the official White House Twitter account for alleged hypocrisy because of their denunciation of Biden’s student loan debt forgiveness program, which forgives up to $20,000 in debt per borrower. Greene targeted Biden multiple times on Twitter on Friday.

The Georgia Republican condemned the president earlier Friday while sharing a short video clip of him saying he doesn’t “respect those MAGA Republicans.” Greene told Biden to “go to hell” after accusing him of destroying the economy, importing “deadly drugs”, “killing unborn children” and “child genital mutilation”.

“I don’t respect you for leaving our border wide open allowing invasion and deadly drugs on a daily basis, arming the Taliban, destroying our economy, killing our energy independence and supporting the murder of unborn and child genital mutilation,” Greene tweeted. “Go to hell Joe.”

Hours later, Greene appeared to accuse the president of ‘vote buying’ – likely a reference to his support for debunked conspiracy theories claiming the 2020 presidential election was ‘stolen’ from former President Donald Trump — after sharing a clip of Biden referencing the Republican PPP loan forgiveness while dismissing her as “what’s her name.”

“I found it fascinating that some of the people who were talking about ‘this is big spending’ are the same people who got $158,000 in PPP money,” Biden told reporters outside the White House in the clip shared by Greene. . “Including the…what’s her name? That woman who believes in…well, a lot of Republicans have a lot of money anyway. The very ones who criticize.”

“Well, if his dementia wasn’t so bad, he might remember it,” Greene tweeted in response. “At least President Trump knows everyone’s name. Joe is a career politician who knows nothing about pay during a tyrannical government shutdown. He only knows how to buy votes.”

Nick Dyer, Greene’s director of communications, said Newsweek in a statement responding to the White House tweet, Greene’s office “cannot find a tweet condemning the acts of political terrorism committed against Congresswoman Greene this week.”

Greene said she had been “crushed” – a term usually referring to receiving harsh treatment from law enforcement after being the target of false police reports – several times this week after police knocked on her door following false reports saying ‘political terrorism’ by her transgender rights supporters was to blame.

Greene last week proposed an anti-transgender law that would make gender-affirming medical care for transgender children a crime, bar medical and mental health professionals from learning about treatments at college, and block funding of any related treatment for adults, although the treatments are overwhelmingly supported as the standard of care for transgender people by the mainstream medical establishment.

Greene also exposed an online forum best known for harassing and stalking transgender people earlier this week after police linked the forum to their own “swatting.” The MP, who has raged over alleged ‘freedom of speech’ abuses Tories have suffered on social media platforms, demanded the forum be ‘taken down’ by the government.

Newsweek contacted the White House for comment.
