Marjorie Taylor Greene Sets White House Straight: ‘My Comments Were Making Fun of Biden and Democrats’

Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has fired back at Democrat President Joe Biden’s White House over a joke she told at a gala for the New York Young Republicans Club.

During her speech at the event, Greene mocked false media claims that she was involved in “plotting” the Capitol riot.

“Then Jan. 6 happened,” Greene said.

“And next thing you know, I organized the whole thing, along with Steve Bannon here.

“And I will tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won.

“Not to mention, it would’ve been armed.

“See that’s the whole joke, isn’t it?

“They say that whole thing was planned and I’m like, are you kidding me?

“A bunch of conservatives, Second Amendment supporters, went in the Capitol without guns, and they think that we organized that?”

The Biden administration attempted to twist Greene’s comments, however.

White House spokesman Andrew Bates said:

“It goes against our fundamental values as a country for a Member of Congress to wish that the carnage of January 6th had been even worse and to boast that she would have succeeded in an armed insurrection against the United States government.

“This violent rhetoric is a slap in the face to the Capitol Police, the DC Metropolitan Police, the National Guard, and the families who lost loved ones as a result of the attack on the Capitol.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said:

“It is antithetical to our values as a country for a member of Congress to wish that the carnage of Jan. 6 would have been even worse.”

Today Greene fired back saying:

“The White House needs to learn how sarcasm works.

“My comments were making fun of Joe Biden and the Democrats, who have continuously made me a political target since January 6th.

“Every day, I receive violent threats against my life simply because Democrats & the media have lied and smeared my character for the past 2 years.

“Including threats resulting in actual arrests with criminal charges & threats against my home in an attempt to have me killed.

“The only time Democrats ‘support’ the 2A is when armed Antifa larpers want to defend perverts at drag queen story time or when leftist Hollywood celebs and politicians are protected by armed bodyguards.

“Rather than trying to weaponize a sarcastic joke I made, they should be going after people like Yoel Roth who silenced a sitting President and allowed child pornography to run rampant on Twitter.

“I will never back down from my support of the Second Amendment.

“And I will never allow the White House, Democrats, or the media to continue to accuse me of something I had nothing to do with.”
