Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) held nothing back against Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) over Boebert’s actions regarding the vote for House Speaker.
In an interview, Greene said: “I think the American people, no matter how you vote, are sick and tired of drama and this is nothing but drama.”
“We are on multiple days now with multiple candidates from this group, so I’m not sure how Lauren Boebert on one hand can demand so much out of Kevin McCarthy, but then demand nothing out of someone else and be willing to vote for them to be Speaker.”
“That’s not serious,” Greene added. “I don’t think that’s leadership, and I really see it as more obstruction than progress.”
This comes as 21 Republicans have opted out of supporting Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for House Speaker.
As RTM previously reported:
McCarthy, the favorite for speaker, has been unable to secure the seat due to GOP holdouts, who continue to largely vote en bloc for other candidates.
Twenty of the members-elect have voted for other candidates, while one has voted present, abstaining from voting for any candidate amid the tumultuous election.
The 21 House Republicans who haven’t voted for McCarthy are Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Reps.-elect Dan Bishop of North Carolina, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Josh Bechreen of Oklahoma, Michael Cloud of Texas, Andrew Clyde of Georgia, Eli Crane of Arizona, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Bob Good of Virginia, Paul Gosar of Arizona, Andy Harris of Maryland, Ana Paulina Luna of Florida, Mary Miller of Illinois, Ralph Norman of South Carolina, Andy Ogles of Tennessee, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Matt Rosendale of Montana, Chip Roy of Texas, Keith Self of Texas, Byron Donalds of Florida and Victoria Spartz of Indiana.
