Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) sat down for an interview on “60 Minutes” last night and left CBS News correspondent Lesley Stahl speechless numerous times.
The congresswoman took no prisoners and accused President Joe Biden and the Democrats of supporting the “grooming” of children.
“Sexualizing children is what pedophiles do to children,” Greene told Stahl.
She also settled scores with Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and former Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan, who she blasted as “RINOs.”
Greene has stood tall in the face of the attacks her critics leveled against her, which Stahl reminded the congresswoman of at beginning of the interview.
She read a list of the insults hurled at Greene but she refused to take the bait.
The discussion turned to comments Greene has previously made about young American children being sexualized at an early age.
However, Greene stood firm and doubled down, leaving Stahl gasping for words.
The great Marjorie Taylor Greene explains she decided to run for office because she was disgusted by the RINOs who obstructed @realDonaldTrump’s agenda.
We need more like @mtgreenee!

LESLEY STAHL: We looked up some words that have been said about you.
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE: Okay.
STAHL: Crazy, Q-clown, Looney Tune, unhinged, moron. Pretty ugly stuff.
GREENE: Looks like the average troll in my Twitter feed, so I don’t really care.
STAHL: You’re used to it?
GREENE: I don’t let name calling bother me or offend me. I just don’t.
STAHL: How much have you styled yourself after Donald Trump?
STAHL: People say that you are Trump in high heels.
GREENE: I didn’t intentionally style myself after President Trump, but I can see how people draw those similarities. We both come from the same industry: construction. I also have pretty much a plain-speaking style and so does he.
STAHL: But also he’s often in attack mode. And you appear to be.
GREENE: Yeah. I think– but I think our government deserves it. They don’t really deserve to be respected that much.
STAHL: The Democrats are a party of pedophiles?
GREENE: I would definitely say so. They support grooming children.
STAHL: They are not pedophiles. Why would you say that?
GREENE: Democrats, Democrats support– even Joe Biden, the President himself, supports children being sexualized and having transgender surgeries. Sexualizing children is what pedophiles do to children.
STAHL: Wow. Okay. But my question really is can’t you fight for what you believe in without all that name-calling and without the personal attacks?
GREENE: Well, I would ask the same question to the other side, because all they’ve done is call me names and insult me non-stop since I’ve been here, Lesley. They call me racist. They call me– sen– anti-Semitic, which is not true. I’m not calling anyone names. I’m calling out the truth basically-
GREENE: Pedophi– call it what it is.
