MTG Defends Her Physique Following Crockett’s Remark

( – Republican firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene has hit back at Democrat Rep. Jasmine Crockett, who insulted the shape of her body. The two lawmakers clashed at a recent House Oversight Committee hearing when Crockett suggested she was unclear as to the purpose of the meeting, and Taylor Greene responded by saying perhaps the Democrat’s fake eyelashes were impeding her sight. Rep. Crockett then suggested that Rep. Taylor Greene had a “bleach blonde bad built butch body.”

On Twitter, the Georgia Republican later stated that she has a strong body, resulting from years of sports participation and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. “I will continue to lift, run, swim, play sports, surf, ski, climb and LIVE,” she wrote.

Rep. Crockett has since released new merchandise emblazoned with the words “Bleach blond bad built butch body” to raise funds for the Democrats. The initial online adverts for t-shirts with the slogan contained a typo, prompting more insults to fly. Activist and swimmer Riley Gaines advised Crockett that a priority should be to spell her own name correctly as she noted the shirts were printed with “Crockrtt.”

The row began at a hearing convened to decide if the House Oversight Committee would seek to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for refusing to hand over tapes of President Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur. The interview was part of Hur’s investigation into the President’s handling of classified documents and in his subsequent report, he concluded that he would not bring charges because a jury would likely consider Biden a well-meaning elderly man with a bad memory.

The Justice Department provided a transcript to Republicans, but the Oversight and Judiciary Committees have both demanded recordings. They say verbal pauses or hesitation on the President’s part could indicate cognitive decline, and therefore, the American public has a right to hear it. The committees subpoenaed the Justice Department for the tapes, but President Biden responded, saying he had employed executive powers to deny the request.
