GOP Reps. Greene, Mace battle on Twitter over fellow lawmaker's Omar jab


Republican Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Nancy Mace of South Carolina sparred on Twitter on Tuesday after Mace condemned Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) over comments in which she likened far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) to a bomb-carrying terrorist.

On Sunday, Mace appeared on CNN and rebuked Boebert, saying: “I have time after time condemned my colleagues on both sides of the aisle for racist tropes and remarks that I find disgusting. And this is no different than any other.”

Greene — who was stripped of her committee assignments earlier this year over a string of inflammatory social media posts from before she was elected — responded Tuesday by calling Mace “the trash in the GOP Conference,” accused her of being a Republican in name only (RINO) and told her to “back up off of @laurenboebert or just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad.”

.@NancyMace is the trash in the GOP Conference.

Never attacked by Democrats or RINO’s (same thing) because she is not conservative, she’s pro-abort.

Mace you can back up off of @laurenboebert or just go hang with your real gal pals, the Jihad Squad.

Your out of your league.

Mace clapped back at Greene with a string of emoji hieroglyphics that translated to “bats— clown.”

In a subsequent tweet, Mace corrected Greene’s grammar, and accused her of being a “religious bigot.”

“I’m a pro-life fiscal conservative who was attacked by the Left all weekend (as I often am) as I defied China while in Taiwan,” Mace added. “What I’m not is a religious bigot (or racist). You might want to try that over there in your little ‘league.’”

Greene later fired back at Mace, tweeting: “So trashy not worth a spelling correction.”

*you’re

And, while I’m correcting you, I’m a pro-life fiscal conservative who was attacked by the Left all weekend (as I often am) as I defied China while in Taiwan.

What I’m not is a religious bigot (or racist). You might want to try that over there in your little “league.” https://t.co/nIbqjiJaFH

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), one of the most vocal critics of far-right lawmakers like Greene, chimed in by calling on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to step in.

“I love this, but worth noting that while this battle between Nancy Mace and the unserious circus barker McSpacelaser, @GOPLeader continues his silent streak that would make a monk blush,” he said.

“Honestly the your/you’re thing is funny… Now we all just see that you can’t spell,” Kinzinger also tweeted in response to Greene.

Mace then trolled Greene by posting a verbatim copy of a statement the Georgian made after she said last week that McCarthy did not have the votes to become House Speaker if Republicans regained control of the chamber following next year’s midterm elections.

“I just got off a good call with @GOPLeader. We spent time talking about solving problems not only in the conference, but for our country. I like what he has planned ahead,” Mace tweeted.

Greene retorted that she spoke with former President Donald Trump — who recently slammed Mace after she voted to hold Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with the Jan. 6 select committee’s subpoena — indicating that she would like to see Mace challenged in a primary next year.

“Just had a great conversation with President Trump about @NancyMace. I absolutely love President Trump. He’s our leader!” she said.

While Mace and Greene’s feud spilled into the public eye, House Republican Conference Leader Elise Stefanik (R-NY) said that the party is largely unified around policy issues as they head toward the midterm election cycle.

“The issues that people care about are not the Twitter infighting, they care about issues that impact their daily lives,” she told reporters at a press conference.

The battle over Boebert stemmed from remarks she made at a recent campaign event, during which she recalled an alleged incident where a Capitol Police officer ran toward an elevator carrying her and Omar, thinking the Democrat was a terrorist.

“I look to my left, and there she is: Ilhan Omar. And I said, ‘Well, she doesn’t have a backpack, we should be fine,’” Boebert said in the video.  

While Boebert posted an apology to the Muslim community on Friday, tensions between her and the progressive lawmaker intensified on Monday after Omar called for the Colorado Republican to apologize and was rebuffed, with Boebert arguing her apology on Twitter was sufficient and calling on Omar to apologize for her past controversial remarks.
