Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a troublemaker since she’s been elected to Congress. She doesn’t take prisoners’ attitude, but for sure, there is a particular vendetta with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.).
The young Rep. is also known as AOC, and the media doesn’t impose some challenging questions. However, when Rep. Marjorie seeks answers, Cortez is immediately running away.

The last encounter between these two representatives happened on Wednesday, and there Greene tried to confront Ocasio-Cortez, but all that Greene got was ignorance.
The Washington Post reported on this event.
”Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene aggressively confronted Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday and falsely accused her of supporting “terrorists,” leading the New York congresswoman’s office to call on leadership to ensure that Congress remains “a safe, civil place for all Members and staff.”
Two Washington Post reporters witnessed Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) exit the House chamber late Wednesday afternoon ahead of Greene (Ga.), who shouted “Hey Alexandria” twice in an effort to get her attention. When Ocasio-Cortez did not stop walking, Greene picked up her pace and began shouting at her and asking why she supports Antifa, a loosely knit group of far-left activists, and Black Lives Matter, falsely labeling them “terrorist” groups. Greene also shouted that Ocasio-Cortez was failing to defend her “radical socialist” beliefs by declining to publicly debate the freshman from Georgia.
“You don’t care about the American people,” Greene yelled at Cortez. “Why do you support terrorists and Antifa?”
Cortez looked at Greene, showing her exasperation. However, it didn’t stop to engage with the congresswoman.
“Representative Greene tried to begin an argument with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, and when Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tried to walk away, Congresswoman Greene began screaming and called Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer,” stated Lauren Hitt, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s spokeswoman. “We hope leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff — especially as many offices are discussing reopening. One Member has already been forced to relocate her office due to Congresswoman Greene’s attacks.”
Before Rep. Greene left, she spoke to reporters and described Ocasio-Cortez.
“She’s a chicken, she doesn’t want to debate the Green New Deal,” Greene said. “These members are cowards. They need to defend their legislation to the people. That’s pathetic.”
Later, on her Twitter, she added more harsh critics against AOC.
“And any U.S. Member of Congress supporting terrorists Hamas should be expelled. Any member supporting and fundraising for criminals in Antifa/BLM riots in American cities should be expelled. That’s the #JihadSquad and the V.P.,” Greene tweeted.
Moreover, Rep. Adam Kinzinger wanted to weigh in on the confrontation, so Green taught him!
“While I may not agree with @AOC on issues, I’ve never seen her confront a colleague like this. The house was created to debate emotional issues professionally, and it seems some just want attention or cannot handle their emotions,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger stated.

“Since you are short on understanding little Adam, I asked @AOC to debate me. In the chamber, to debate her destructive socialist policies. But Sandy doesn’t know how to work with Republicans. Neither do you.” Rep. Marjorie Greene said.
In the conversation, the representative talked about the challenge from last month. If you don’t know about that, Greene challenged Ocasio-Cortez to debate the Green New Deal, but the N.Y. representative avoided it.
“I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC to plan our debate about the Green New Deal,” Georgia rep. Greene tweeted. “After I finish reading all 14 pages like we agreed, I’ll schedule time for our debate.”
Greene has been trying to debate Ocasio-Cortez in the last period, unsuccessfully.
Moreover, last week Greene emphasized her business background as a construction company owner for more than twenty years. Also, Marjorie contrasted her resume to Ocasio-Cortez’s degree in economics.
“@AOC I’d like to challenge you to a debate on the Green New Deal economic policy. Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have a degree in Economics, I’m sure you are more than qualified,” posted Greene.
“I just have a degree in Business Admin and have owned a construction company for 20 years. A debate between AOC and I on the Green New Deal economic policy would be informative for the American People. They deserve to hear the two sides with pro’s and cons,” said Greene in the following tweet.
But, the Representative added another tweet. @AOC you can choose one moderator, and I choose a moderator. Then we can negotiate a major news network to host the debate. Let’s do this for The People. What do you say?”
