MTG and Crockett go after each other’s looks in heated Oversight hearing: ‘Talk s***’


During the House Oversight Committee hearing on Thursday evening, Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) shot nasty remarks at each other. 

The hearing got off to a rocky start regarding why everyone was meeting — committee members were discussing whether to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt — and why so late in the day. Greene asked committee Democrats if any of them was employing Judge Juan Merchan’s daughter, alluding to the New York hush money trial former President Donald Trump faces.

Crockett responded by asking what that had to do with Garland, asking Greene if she knew what they were meeting for. “I think your fake eyelashes are messing up your reading,” Greene shot back.

Greene’s comment angered Rep. Alexandria Oscasio-Cortez (D-NY), who demanded that Greene’s words be struck from the record. 

“Are your feelings hurt?” Greene asked Oscasio-Cortez. 

“Oh baby girl … don’t even play,” Oscasio-Cortez said.

The exchange derailed the meeting for a half hour as Crockett, Oscasio-Cortez, Greene, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) went back and forth, with Chairman James Comer (R-KY) trying desperately to maintain order. 

Oscasio-Cortez demanded that Greene apologize for her comment, but instead, Greene refused and suggested that Oscasio-Cortez debate her instead. Greene went on to say that Oscasio-Cortez does not have the intelligence to debate her. Oscasio-Cortez then moved for Greene’s words to be struck again.

When Crockett was given time to speak, she alluded to Greene having a “bleach blonde, bad-built, butch body.” Crockett smiled after her remark, and a shouting match ensued. Luna told the Texas Democrat to calm down.

“Don’t tell me to calm down,” Crockett demanded. “Because if I come and talk s*** about her, y’all are going to have a problem.”


By 10 p.m., a vote on holding Garland in contempt of Congress was still not taken. Earlier in the day, the House Judiciary Committee voted to advance the contempt resolution against Garland for refusing to hand over audio recordings from special counsel Robert Hur’s interview with Biden related to his classified documents case.

Oversight Democrats were upset that the hearing was pushed until the evening Thursday due to a handful of Republicans on the committee going to Manhattan to support Trump in his trial.
