Greene responds after Fox News columnist calls her an ‘idiot’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) criticized Fox News after a columnist at the outlet called her “an idiot” who is trying to “destroy the Republican Party.”

“Fox News called me an idiot. That was literally its headline. “They called me an idiot,” Greene. said during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s podcast this week. “But what I have done is expose what was already happening in the dark.”

Greene was referring to an op-ed published on last month by contributor Liz Peek, who argued that Greene is bad for the party, accusing her of “grandiose and self-serving spectacle.”

“Internal party disputes must end. If Marjorie Taylor Greene and others want to oppose aid to Ukraine or the FISA bill, they can vote against it. “This is how democracy works,” wrote Peek, who is also a weekly contributor to The Hill. “My message to MTG? To borrow from Hillary Clinton: Get over yourself. “The mission today is to elect Donald Trump.”

Greene has said she will push to unseat House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) over a number of issues, including outlining her plan to consider foreign aid.

“The beautiful thing about this is that Democrats have to be sincere; they were controlling Mike Johnson anyway,” Greene told Bannon of his effort to unseat Johnson.
