This is a story you are not likely to hear on mainstream news networks when they talk about politicians under attack.

Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claims she was attacked while dining at a restaurant.

“I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son. They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views. They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control. I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons. People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone,” she said on Twitter.

The representative did not say what restaurant the incident occurred at or what was said to her.

The Georgia representative made news this month when she spoke on the war between Russia and Ukraine.

Greene is demanding an audit of the financial aid that has been given to Ukraine by the United States. She said on Thursday that she plans to re-introduce legislation to audit the tens of billions of dollars that have been given to Ukraine.

“It’s going to force Congress to give the American people an audit,” she said to Fox News host Tucker Carlson “And that is exactly what the American people need, an audit of Ukraine because we have no idea where all this money’s going.”

“I’m introducing this resolution, and I’m looking forward to seeing my Republican colleagues support it. There’s not bipartisan support among the American people for fighting a war in Ukraine that does nothing for Americans except force them to pay for it,” the representative said. “Ukraine is the new Iraq,” she said. “Our country is run by stupid warmongers that are so clueless and disconnected with what the American people want that they are literally leading us into World War 3. That’s why I’m introducing a resolution to find out exactly where our money is going.”

But you can count Fox News host Laura Ingraham as one of the people who are not thrilled with Rep. Greene’s idea of a national divorce.

Speaking on her Fox News show on Wednesday Ingraham said that the answer to the divide in the United States was not red states separating from blue states.

“We need a national divorce,” the firebrand Republican Georgia representative said in a tweet on Presidents’ Day this week. “We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s [sic] traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”

Ingraham also showed a clip of the representative saying that people who move from blue states to red states should not be allowed to vote for five years.

“Red states could choose in how they allow people to vote in their states… What I think would be something that some red states could propose is, well, ok, if Democrat voters choose to flee these blue states where they cannot tolerate the living conditions, they don’t want their children taught these horrible things, and they really changed their mind on types of policies that they support, well, once they move to a red state, guess what? Maybe you don’t get to vote for five years,” she said.

Ingraham correctly said that such a law would not be legal by the Constitution.

“Ok, well, first, a law prohibiting American citizens – who’ve not committed a crime – from voting would probably not withstand legal scrutiny,” the host said. “And, second, how would like a national divorce be good for conservatism? Now, why would we want to embrace the states that gave us Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, but essentially give up on the states that gave us Reagan and Trump?”

“The last thing we need is an American breakup of any sort. Remember, a motto of this show almost from the start over five years ago has been ‘no state left behind.’ Just because it often seems like Democrats have given up on America themselves, doesn’t mean ever that Republicans or conservatives should,” she said.
