Controversial Congresswoman Hilariously Goes Wrong with Criticism of Nancy Pelosi
The controversial Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene wanted to criticize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But a slip of the tongue, in which she spoke of a cold soup instead of the Gestapo, only brought her ridicule.
“Now we have Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police spying on members of Congress, spying on the legislative work we do, spying on our employees, and spying on American citizens who want to talk to their representatives,” said the Republican and vehement supporter. Donald Trump against the right-wing channel OAN without presenting evidence. The target of criticism has apparently been the Democrat Pelosi-backed Commission of Inquiry into last year’s storming of the Capitol.
Mocking the slip was not long in coming. Greene “at least sets a good example. Apparently she banned all books from her house years ago,” for example, her Democratic colleague Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Wednesday. It alluded to recent attempts by Republicans, among others, to have certain books on topics such as racism blacklisted in some school libraries.
Greene apparently reacted resignedly to the ad. “No soup for those who illegally spy on members of Congress. However, they end up in the gulags,” the Republican tweeted, referring to the prison camps of the Soviet dictatorship.
The Congressman is a champion of conspiracy theories. Since her election at the end of 2020, she has repeatedly stood out for provocative statements. A few months ago, she compared corona measures with the persecution of the Jews by the Nazis, something for which she later apologized.
