Greene response to bipartisan criticism: ‘The American people agree with me’

Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo on Sunday confronted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) about her actions’ potential impact on the GOP’s ability to govern and reelect President Trump.

In a Sunday interview on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Bartiromo pressed Greene on the criticism she has received over her repeated threats to oust Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.).

“You’re getting criticized on the left, on the right, in the media, a lot of people are criticizing you. And the reason that they are is because they’re saying that you’re creating drama during this election year,” Bartiromo said.

“How is this leading to reelecting President Trump? How is this leading to the American people believing that the Republicans can govern? People are saying, ‘Look, she’s creating chaos. She’s making the entire party look like it’s disrupted.’ Your reaction and response to those criticisms?”

Greene refuted the claims, stating, “Those that are calling this ‘drama’ are the very people that are responsible for the drama that the American people are having to live through every single day.”

She continued, “The people criticizing me are not the American people. The American people agree with me, and I’ve talked to them, and I’ve seen it all over. They are outraged, and what they’re saying is they don’t want to vote for Republicans anymore … The Republican Party in charge right now, it’s no different than the Democrat party.”

Bartiromo also questioned Greene about why she did not file a motion to vacate the Speaker’s chair after the House on Saturday passed an additional $95 billion in new foreign aid, $60 billion of which is going to Ukraine.

“I’ve been responsible with this the entire time. I support our majority, and I support having the majority in 2025,” Greene said.

However, Greene clearly stated her disapproval of the bill.

“And then once this bill was passed, the American people saw on their television screens and social media all over where Congress was waving the Ukrainian flag on the United States House of Representatives floor. All of this was possible because of the betrayals of Mike Johnson,” she said.
