Marjorie Taylor Greene tears into 'weak' Republicans, Congress: 'I think a lot of them are losers'
The controversial Republican representative from Georgia, who won her first election to the House last year, recently blasted party colleagues, Dems in a no-holds-barred interview with Tucker Carlson
Controversial first-time Republican lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene on Wednesday, May 5, lashed out at her colleagues in the Congress, including fellow GOP representatives, saying she is “disgusted” by the Congress “wastes” taxpayers’ money. Speaking exclusively on Tucker Carlson Today on Fox News, the firebrand leader said the country is “crumbling” because of the government’s gross mismanagement. She also called a section of the GOP members as “weak”.
Greene, who is known to be a supporter of QAnon and Pizzagate conspiracy theories and former president Donald Trump, told Carlson, a conservative political commentator: “This is a system that is severely failing the American people and the American people don't know how bad it is.”

The Georgia representative, who will turn 47 this month, did not restrict her criticism for the rival Democrats but also slammed fellow Republicans. “Republican voters and donors are sick and tired and fed up with weak Republicans that never accomplish what they claim they're going to do,” she said, without taking specific names.
Greene added that she was “so angry” with the Republicans for not taking bold action after Trump won the presidential election of 2016 that she decided to run for the office. “We had a Republican-controlled House and Senate and the Republicans failed us. They didn’t repeal Obamacare, they didn't defund Planned Parenthood and they didn’t build the wall [at the southern border],” she told the host. While the GOP lost control of the House in the 2018 midterms, they lost both the presidency and control of the Senate in last year’s elections.
'I think a lot of them are losers'
The leader said she understood soon after getting elected that the Congress was failing the people of America. “The people that are there aren't qualified to be there. They are people that can only succeed in government, or academia, or maybe they’re attorneys that couldn’t build their career enough so they decided to go into politics,” she said. When Carlson said that those leaders “sound like losers”, Greene supported it saying: “I think a lot of them ARE losers!”
“They’re not impressive people and they can’t relate to real America. They’ve never functioned in it, they’ve never succeeded in it. They’ve never built something and been tested,” Greene, whose committee responsibilities were removed in February as a result of the charges of incendiary remarks she had made in the past, added.
Accusing the lawmakers of wasting public money, Greene said: “They don’t appreciate the hard earned tax dollars that people work so hard for that people have to pay to the government. They don't appreciate the people’s money. They waste it and throw it away. They spend it on frivolous programs that make them feel good about themselves.”
“Congress needs to be held accountable for every single American, and I don't care if they're Republican or Democrat,” she added.
During the interview, Carlson though did not ask Greene, a mother of three, any questions about her thoughts on QAnon.
