Conservative House candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene won her primary on Tuesday night in Georgia, and she wasted little time going after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
While giving her acceptance speech after winning a Republican primary election in Georgia, Greene vowed to “kick that b*tch” Pelosi out of Congress.
The Washington Examiner reported:
House candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a “b*tch” during her acceptance speech after winning a Republican primary election in Georgia.
Greene told her supporters on Tuesday that she was going to get Pelosi removed from Congress after winning her runoff election against John Cowan to become the GOP nominee for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District.
“She’s a hypocrite. She’s anti-American. And we’re going to kick that bitch out of Congress,” she said.
Greene also had harsh words for some of the Republican leaders in Congress. Several top Republicans had disavowed her candidacy because of videos she had posted using racist language and for her ties to the conspiracy theories touted by QAnon. GOP leaders such as Whip Steve Scalise had revoked their endorsements after the videos of Greene surfaced.
“The GOP establishment, the media, & the radical left, spent months & millions of dollars attacking me,” Greene tweeted after her win. “Tonight the people of Georgia stood up & said that we will not be intimidated or believe those lies.”
Greene may have lost the support of many House Republicans, but President Trump commended her for her win on Wednesday morning, calling her a “future Republican star.”
“Congratulations to future Republican Star Marjorie Taylor Greene on a big Congressional primary win in Georgia against a very tough and smart opponent. Marjorie is strong on everything and never gives up — a real WINNER!” he tweeted.
Greene thanked Trump for his endorsement, writing, “Thank you @realdonaldtrump. I love America, it’s the greatest country in the world! You inspired me to run and fight to Save America and Stop Socialism!! No one will fight harder than me!!”
