OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene made a major announcement about her political future following the Republican primary in her home state of Georgia.

Greene handily won the nomination for her district, and took to the X platform to thank her constituents.

“THANK YOU Northwest Georgia!! It’s the honor of a lifetime to serve as your Congresswoman. I’m so grateful to be your Republican nominee to represent you once again in District 14. Let’s win BIG in November, send President Trump back to the White House, and send me back to Congress to support his America First agenda!” she wrote in a post containing a campaign graphic.

Earlier this month, Greene lashed out at Fox News after a columnist on the network’s website called her an “idiot.”

“Fox News called me an idiot. That was literally their headline. They called me an idiot,” she said to “War Room” podcast host and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon. “But what I’ve done is expose what was already happening in the dark.”

The comment was in response to an opinion piece by Fox News contributor Liz Peek that had the headline “Marjorie Taylor Greene is an idiot. She is trying to wreck the GOP.”

“It’s high time someone in the Republican Party told Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to turn all that bombastic self-serving showmanship and drama queen energy on Democrats, and stop trying to defeat her own party,” the author said in the piece.

“The internal squabbles of the party need to stop. If Marjorie Taylor Greene and others want to oppose aid to Ukraine or the FISA bill, they can vote against it. That’s how democracy works. My message for MTG? Borrowing from Hillary Clinton: Get over yourself. The mission today is to elect Donald Trump,” she said.

In March, Greene filed a motion to oust Mike Johnson from the speakership amid anger about a government funding bill.

“The House would have to consider Greene’s motion within two legislative days after she is recognized. The chamber is heading for a two-week recess, and Greene told reporters she would not call up the resolution on Friday, which means the clock to force a vote has not started,” Axios reported.

“After Greene filed the motion, she was swarmed by her Republican colleagues. A source close to the conversations told CNN that a number of fellow GOP lawmakers were trying to convince the Georgia Republican not to bring the motion. Two of the lawmakers who were there, GOP Reps. Barry Loudermilk and Kat Cammack, were observed to be in an extended conversation with Greene,” the outlet added.

Greene spoke to reporters and said: “Short or getting the vote is necessary how can you find someone to succeed Mike Johnson who can get the votes and keep the conference together and not plunge the chamber into chaos? It’s because the country is in crisis. We have a border invasion happening every single day. People under 30 years old has lost hope for their future. The younger generations cannot afford to buy homes, and inflation is running rampant.”

“Our country is in crisis and we need real leaders who know how to fight and know how to walk into the ring and do not get rolled by the deep state, or by the Democrats do not get rolled into doing whatever it takes to maintain that power and position. We need to speak of the House that actually represents the people,” she added.

Her motion to vacate was ultimately unsuccessful.
