Two conservative firebrands, both known as staunch MAGA Republicans, appeared at odds before a Wednesday vote on the floor of the House of Representatives.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Rep. Lauren Boebert traded words in an interaction that got heated, according to a report from the liberal website The Daily Beast
Video of the interaction reveals a conversation that didn’t appear friendly.
Greene went so far as to call Boebert a “little b****” in the conversation, according to The Daily Beast, which cited three sources, two who reportedly saw the exchange and a third “familiar with the matter.”
Both Greene and Boebert have introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden, citing the immigration crisis on the southern border. Greene was reportedly displeased with what she saw as Boebert’s copying of her articles of impeachment.
Greene also told Boebert she wanted to talk about “statements you’ve made about me publicly,” according to The Daily Beast.
“I’ve donated to you, I’ve defended you. But you’ve been nothing but a little b**** to me,” she said, according to the website. “And you copied my articles of impeachment after I asked you to cosponsor them.”
Another member of the House Republican Caucus indicated that Greene referred to Boebert with the profanity, according to The Daily Beast.
“I heard Marjorie call Boebert a b**** right to her face,” the lawmaker said, according to The Daily Beast.
Boebert herself reportedly renounced Greene in the heated House floor conversation.
“OK, Marjorie, we’re through,” she said, the website reported.
“We were never together,” Greene responded, according to The Daily Beast.
According to a Twitter post published by Politico reporter Olivia Beavers, Greene later confirmed that The Daily Beast’s description of the conversation was accurate.
“My priorities are to correct their bad policies and save America.”
