Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) — then a conservative activist — is seen taunting workers in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-(D-N.Y.) Cortez’s office via a mailbox slot in a video released by CNN on Friday.
Greene and at least three male friends can be seen outside the lawmaker’s office ordering her to “get rid of your diaper” and come outside in the since-deleted Facebook Live video uncovered by CNN’s KFile.

“I’m an American citizen, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Since I am a taxpaying citizen of the United States, I pay your salary through the taxes you raise for me through the IRS “In the video, Greene says.
New: A since-deleted video from 2019 shows MTG harassing @AOC‘s office through a locked door. Calling her “crazy eyes” and telling her through the office’s mailbox slot to “get rid of your diaper” while telling the office to open the door and come out. https://t.co/QgcJucs4o8 pic.twitter.com/ccTufF90Z9

Greene then goes on to criticize Ocasio-“socialist” Cortez’s policies, saying, “You’re bringing God’s judgment on our country, and I, as well as my friends, are against it.”
Greene says, “You need to stop being a kid and stop locking your door and come out and face the American citizens that you represent.” “Instead of us needing to use a flap, a little flap, if you want to be a big kid, you should get rid of your diaper and come out and be able to talk to American citizens. It’s a shame.”
Greene’s partner then takes his place at the mail box, claiming that he can hear people inside and saying, “I can hear you in there.”
Greene and her companions then proceeded to write “Ocasio Crazy Cortez” and “Trump 2020” in a visitors’ signing book outside of Ocasio-office. Cortez’s Greene then proposes that a border wall be drawn on a different page.
On Friday, when asked about the video, Ocasio-Cortez said that she believes Greene is mentally ill.
“I mean, this is a woman who is obviously ill and in need of assistance.” And her obsession has been going on for a long time. “I think the depth of the illness has posed questions for other representatives as well,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters on Capitol Hill. “And so, you know, I believe this is an evaluation that needs to be made by the government.”
“I’m worried about her truth views,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Greene defended her behavior in the video as activism on Friday.
“The context is that I’m walking around and talking to members of Congress who represent the people, and now taxpayers aren’t even allowed to come speak to us. We should be able to ask questions about the socialist Green New Deal “Greene said to the press.
The video has resurfaced during an ongoing spat between the two prominent lawmakers.
Greene approached Ocasio-Cortez outside the House chamber on Wednesday, demanding that they discuss the Green New Deal.
On Thursday, Ocasio-Cortez likened Greene to rowdy bar patrons.
