Real Housewives of Hades trends after Marjorie Taylor-Greene conjures SATAN in bizarre rant
'Real Housewives of Hades' trended after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene doubled down on her claim that Satan influences women into getting abortions.
The Georgia Republican's comments came just days after Florida joined a growing list of states banning, or severely curtailing access to abortion on April 14, 2022. The landmark Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade was partially lifted as Mississippi asked to legalize such "trigger bans." It has opened the floodgates to a long series of similar legislation, perhaps most controversially in Texas.

"If you are defending pedophile priests and those who protect them, groomer teachers & Disney LGBTQ propaganda, Drag Queen story time, saying it’s not Satan convincing women to abort their unplanned child, and that children can be mutilated to change their gender, you’re wrong," the conservative firebrand tweeted on Saturday, April 30.

This sparked a wave of reactions on Twitter, with some joking that she could star in a TV show entitled the 'Real Housewives of Hades'. In Greek mythology, Hades is regarded as the god of the underworld and the ruler of the dead. In fact, the underworld itself was also known to the Greeks as Hades.
"Watch as Lauren Boebert, jealous of Marjorie Taylor Greene's relationship with Satan, confronts her. All next week on the Real Housewives of Hades," filmmaker Jeremy Newberger tweeted.
"The Real Housewives of Hades should be a real thing. Along with with Marge and Lauren throw in Marsha Blackburn, Ginnie Thomas, and Ronna McDaniel and you have an Emmy winner," one user added.
"Someone should write an ongoing sage about these demented, dangerous nuts," another wrote.
"Addressing Marjorie Taylor Greene as the 'gentle lady from Georgia' is like calling Adolf Hitler the 'Gentleman from Hades'!" someone else quipped.

Rep. Greene's tweet came just days after she made similar comments in a TV interview with Catholic activist Michael Voris. "It's whispered, softly and gently, into your ears and into your soul," she told the host, adding that Satan tells women "it's okay" to get an abortion and in exchange promises them "all these dreams that you have in your heart. And that's how Satan sells a sin, and that's how he sells abortion. He tells a woman that all you have to do is you're just going to go to this clinic, just going to get it over with, you know." She added, "And then you're going to, that guy, he's going to stay with you, that boyfriend or the guy, whoever he is, he's going to marry you, sweep you off your feet."
It's worth noting that abortion is a cultural flashpoint in the US as several GOP-led states are adopting restrictive abortion legislation. Rep. Greene has strongly opposed the practice and has been known to invoke her Christian faith when confronted over the topic. Her hour-long interview with Voris, which was published on Monday, April 25, sparked controversy this week after she attacked the Catholic Church. Greene also claimed that Catholics were supporting an "illegal invasion" by offering refuge to undocumented migrants, and that there was evidence that "Satan is controlling the church."

Bill Donohue, the president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, condemned Greene's remarks on Wednesday, April 27, saying she had "slandered the entire Catholic Church." The congresswoman responded with a statement on Twitter, saying she's a "cradle Catholic" who left the church "because I realized that I could not trust the Church leadership to protect my children from pedophiles and that they harbored monsters even in their own ranks." She added, "It's the church leadership I was referring to when I invoked the Devil. The bishops know that, but had their loyal lapdog pretend I was being disrespectful about the faith."
