Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene says she reported Jimmy Kimmel’s joke to Capitol Police

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Republican from Georgia who loved social media posts about the execution of prominent Democrats, said Wednesday she reported comedian Jimmy Kimmel to the United States Capitol police for allegedly makes a joke about him.

During his monologue Tuesday night, Kimmel ridiculed Greene for accusing three Republican senators of being “pro-pedophiles” because they voted to confirm Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.

“Wow, where’s Will Smith when you really need him, huh?” Kimmel joked, referring to the actor who slapped comedian Chris Rock onstage at the Oscars last month.

“This threat of violence against me by @jimmykimmel has been filed with the @CapitolPolice,” Greene tweeted, attaching a clip from the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” segment.

Greene was stripped of her House committee assignments last year for her support of deranged conspiracy theories and calls for violence on social media before taking office.

She reportedly endorsed theories claiming several mass school shootings were staged and liked Facebook posts calling for the execution of Democratic politicians, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former President Barack Obama, as well that FBI agents, whom she and other QAnon believers believed were part of a “deep state” plot to defeat former President Donald Trump.

She has been a strong advocate for Trump supporters charged in connection with the violent siege of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and recently accused Ukraine of being invaded by Russia.

On the one-year anniversary of the deadly Jan. 6 insurgency, which injured dozens of Capitol police and other law enforcement officers, Greene spread a conspiracy theory that the attack on Congress was an inside job.

Kimmel seemed indifferent to Greene’s supposed police report:

Capitol Police did not immediately return a request for comment.
