The tension between Rep. Robert Garcia (D-Calif.) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) just got a summer sequel. (Check out the video below.)
The notoriously disruptive lawmaker called for “decency” on Thursday when Garcia featured one of Greene’s controversial pandemic tweets at a House hearing on COVID-19.
“Marjorie needs to remember she showed us a dick pic last week,” Garcia wrote on Twitter, now rebranded as the X.
Last week, Garcia Greene filed a complaint for showing nude photos of Hunter Biden at a House hearing that was supposed to be about IRS whistleblowers’ testimonies about Biden’s alleged tax crimes. Tax inspectors claimed the Justice Department had dropped its investigation into more serious matters, while Republicans continued their unsuccessful efforts to tie President Joe Biden to his son’s questionable business dealings.
“Today’s hearing is like most majority investigations and hearings: lots of allegations, no evidence, no receipts, but apparently some dick photos,” Garcia ranted at the time.
But at Thursday’s hearing, titled “Because I Said So: Examining the Science and Implications of COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates,” Greene had a listening ear with Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio).
Garcia shared an image of a tweet by Greene comparing vaccination requirements to the Holocaust. He noted that it came from a committee member “who actually just presented some very irresponsible facts”. He added that some members of the panel, such as Democratic presidential nominee Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and other conspiracy theorists, continue to attack vaccines that he says “save lives.”
Then Greene interjected and asked Wenstrup to remind the committee members of the rules of “decency”.
Wenstrup complied, accusing Garcia of breaking house rules by getting personal.
Garcia argued that he didn’t mention Greene by name and showed a tweet that was public knowledge.
Wenstrup said on his website that the aim of his selected subcommittee was “Investigate the harmful consequences of COVID-19 vaccination regulations to make improved policy recommendations for future pandemics.”
Greene, of course, is known for his theatricality and insults, even harassing Joe Biden during a State of the Union address.
So when she asks for decency, she usually hears about it.
