Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has demanded that MSNBC host Joy Reid apologizes to GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) over the slanderous “sexist comments” on her show.
As Slay News reported, Reid chuckled in delight while her guest, DNC adviser and MSNBC analyst Kurt Bardella, suggested that Boebert should become a sex worker if she loses her seat in Congress.

Following a widespread backlash from all sides, Bardella issued an apology after getting shamed by liberals and conservatives.
However, Reid has stayed eerily quiet about the controversy.
Greene is about to let the matter lie though.
“Joy Reid APOLOGIZE to my colleague Lauren Boebert for the disgusting sexist comments about her on YOUR show,” Greene blasted on Twitter.

Bardella caused outrage by suggesting Boebert should seek work from adult porn site OnlyFans if she loses her tight race.
He was forced to later issue an apology over the comments.
“I appreciate your feedback and when someone from your vantage point weighs in – that warrants consideration and reflection,” Bardella said.
“I’ll be more thoughtful about my words in the future.
“It is NEVER my intention to shame women. I apologize. Period.
“There is nothing wrong with consensual interactions on platforms like OnlyFans.
“Anyone suggesting otherwise in an effort to shame or judge really needs to examine their own perception of women and their autonomy.
“That said, I have zero appetite for the faux-outrage coming from the MAGA-ites because we all know they don’t give a rip about sexism, misogyny or equality.
“They are hypocrites of the first order.
“Just look at their standard-bearer.”
Liberals even suck at feminism.
Can y’all do anything right? https://t.co/w0qj2ImUQl

Even Nina Jankowicz, Biden’s shortlived minister of truth, defended Boebert:
“I despise Lauren Boebert—she slandered me on the House floor, fundraised off it, and encouraged threats against me. But the sexualized, misogynistic attacks on her are out of line.
“There is plenty to criticize about her record without these disgusting ‘jokes.’
“Do better, Dems,” she added.
“Folks, as someone who has both extensively researched and been subject to online abuse, some of the replies to this tweet are really disappointing and sad.
“Materially, there is no difference between the sexist jokes about Boebert are no different than gendered disinfo.
“We tracked against Kamala Harris and others during the 2020 election in our #MalignCreativity study.”
