Greene Responds To Fox News Calling Her An ‘Idiot’ Over Johnson Ouster Push

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) fired back at Fox News for calling her an “idiot” due to her efforts to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson. Greene addressed the criticism on former Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast this week.

“Fox News called me an idiot. That was literally their headline. They called me an idiot” Greene said. “But what I’ve done is expose what was already happening in the dark.”

Greene was referring to Fox News commentator Liz Peek’s op-ed last month titled, “Marjorie Taylor Greene is an idiot. She is trying to wreck the GOP.” Peek wrote, “It’s high time someone in the Republican Party told Greene to turn all that bombastic self-serving showmanship and drama queen energy on Democrats and stop trying to defeat her own party.”

Despite criticism from within the GOP and former President Donald Trump’s support for Johnson Greene has not abandoned her desire to remove the Louisiana Republican as speaker. She recently initiated a motion to vacate the chair setting a vote for next week.

“The beautiful thing about it is Democrats have to come clean; they were controlling Mike Johnson anyway,” Greene said on “War Room.”
