Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) called Joe Biden an “old fart” on Friday, but the insult went largely unnoticed by many social media users.
On Friday, the president announced the creation of the Office to Prevent Gun Violence at the White House, later tweeting: “IIt’s time to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines again.”
He added: “If members of Congress refuse to act, we must elect new members of Congress who will act.”
Clearly Greene saw red in this post and responded with a tweet: “Whatever you old fart is. We are electing a new president. 45 becomes 47.”
Greene may have thought the “old fart” comment was a truth bomb, but many institutional users.”
As a result, she was thoroughly ridiculed.
Greene has been pushing for civility toward everyone but her for some time.
After she criticized Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman on Monday for wearing a hoodie on the Senate floor, he pointed out that there are other forms of decency. He reminded her of how she showed naked pictures of Hunter Biden during a House hearing.
Back in May, Greene learned how much her Democratic colleagues respected her desire for decorum when they laughed out loud at her after she told them, “Members are reminded to abide by the decorum of the House,” only to be met with peals of laughter to trigger.
