Former President Donald Trump held a rally in Commerce, Georgia on Saturday and among those to speak was local Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Among the various dog whistles Greene blew to the MAGA diehards, Greene again criticized trans swimmer Lia Thomas.
She misgendered the trans woman swimmer, saying ”he” needs to go back to the men’s team “because we’re going to kick the biological men out of the women’s sports.”

She also took aim at out-gay Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
“And you know what, Pete Buttigieg can take his electric vehicles and bicycles, and he and his husband can stay out of our girls’ bathrooms!”
Unvarnished homophobia and it gets big cheers from Trump fans at his rally in Georgia https://t.co/lT6uXUJq3X

Among those to raise an eyebrow at the remarks was former The View co-host Meghan McCain, who said, “Just keep in mind Trump supporters and GOP leadership have more of a problem with @Liz_Cheney than this freak.”

Many were similarly unimpressed.
I’m a woman, and honestly, I’d rather Pete Buttigieg in the bathroom with me than Marjorie Taylor Greene. https://t.co/jmIiFIq4hx

Marjorie Taylor Greene wants Pete Buttigieg to stay out of women’s bathrooms. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a bigoted ignorant fuck.#TrumpRally

Pete Buttigieg can use any bathroom he wants.
Meanwhile, Marjorie Taylor Greene isn’t even housebroken.

Pete Buttigieg is a hero, Marjorie Taylor Greene is a ZERO.

The Republican Party is using Marjorie Taylor Greene as a walking messaging test. They’re trying to figure out how to undermine Sec. Pete Buttigieg. If it’s effective to their base, it’s worth it. If it backfires, they can just say that MTG is unhinged and doesn’t speak for them. https://t.co/Huwpllg7af

Trump’s Georgia rally failed to draw a big crowd, according to several reporters at the event.
Trump himself claimed tens of thousands showed up.
“We had a massive crowd last night in Georgia, but as usual, the Fake News Media absolutely refuses to show it,” he said via a statement on Sunday.
“People are estimating 25,000 to 35,000 people, but our record so far is Texas with 87,000 people with 50,000 being turned away. This is fun!”
However, photographic evidence for this claim has been hard to come by. Reporters at the event said it was more like 5,000.
Yeah, don’t believe the line that there were 25,000-35,000 people at the Trump rally last night. The crowd was far smaller and far quieter than other rallies in Georgia — and elsewhere — I’ve covered. Also, I just noticed an attendee in this shot indicating the media is #1. https://t.co/MorrMo2bMF

Trump is dispatching his spokesperson to desperately deny any report that last night’s Georgia rally had tons of empty seats.

It’s almost time for Trump to speak here in Georgia and there’s probably no more than 5,000 people here, the smallest Trump rally I’ve ever covered here. Way less than the Perry rally in 2021 (closer to 10k) and nowhere close to 2020’s 20-30k+ #gapol pic.twitter.com/lokIiFONFC

i swear that woman wants her own reality show and will say anything for attention. i wonder what it would be called……
Perhaps call it Evolution Interrupted?
That’s all she CAN get at this point. She lost all her committee assignments, so all she does is floor vote. She can’t campaign for re-election on having accomplished anything, because she hasn’t and cannot contribute to legislation in her current position.
If her district is thinking at all rationally, they won’t re-elect her, because she literally cannot do or get anything meaningful for the district.
We need to do more to counter ignorant statements like guys in womens bathrooms.
I realize the prefix “trans” appears in the word “transportation,” but why tf does this pos think the transportation secretary and his husband have anything to do with who plays on a sports team or who’s using what bathroom??? She’s a wackadoo.
Omg… I just realized… there is no way she thought “transportation” somehow had something to do with trans people. I refuse to believe someone is that stupid.
you need to get your believer checked because she sure could be that stupid
This miserable bitch and take a piss outside along with the other dogs
Reluctantly, to give her credit, she stays right on brand.
Marjorie is a woman?
She’s not even human.
She’s just trying to become a Fox News host despite being nowhere near attractive enough to pass the Roger Ayles “spin for me” test.
Marjorie Taylor Greene needs to be expelled from Congress. She is such an idiot and what she said about Pete and Chasten Buttigieg is sickening.
Would this woman still have this bs view if a family member of hers were part of the LGBTQIA community? Like seriously… We’re in the 21st century so for Pete’s sake just deal with it, not all people are the same. there’s absolutely no shame in being different…
Yes, very likely she would have the same view if a family member were to reveal they were gay or trans. She would be one of those who either abuse them physically or kick them out. She is stupid, arrogant and devoid of empathy.
…. the world has always had freaks like Greene in it. However, the amount of white trailer trash (dwindling as it may be) at Trump Rallys is a screaming example of how the dumbing down of America via Public Schools has occurred over the last 50-years.
Trump has always exaggerated his crowd size even at his inauguration. He probably has the same problem in stating the size of his penis.
So, “Idiocracy” was a documentary?
No. More like a playbook.
We’re about 20 years away from watering plants with Brawndo. Not the 500 years in the future it was in Idiocracy.
If this woman win’s re-election I can only wonder what her constituency looks like. The other half of the shock is that the people at the rally clapped at the stupid remark. I’m kind of with Larry David and believe we should have an intelligence test to vote/run for office.
She’s going all in on culture war BS because she doesn’t have anything else to campaign on. She had no legislative accomplishments before being stripped of her committee assignments. She doesn’t have anything to show or promise to her voters. She has no power at all and that’s why she just spouts conservative populism ad nauseum..
What really needs to happen is media, big and small, to ignore her. Take the air out of her sails. At the rate that she gets press attention for her astounding stupidity, she’s going to become the next Trump because of all the free coverage.
Does nobody remember that this is exactly how Trump went from being a political sideshow to winning the presidency?
“It” is the definition of the “C” word.
Thinking it’s time we start shipping shit stains like Greene, Boebert, Trump, Etc off-planet. They take up oxygen other people might need, and don’t offer anything in return.
I wonder if it’s physically painful to be that stupid. I mean, if someone like Meghan McCain called me a freak, I would have to take a minute to think. Her base must be on the moron scale of intelligence to have elected her.
Unfortunately, MTG is a multi-millionaire, so she’ll continue to pull these stupid stunts, regardless what is does to her “career”. She’s just proof the GOP doesn’t care squat about America, at least not an America that isn’t sparkly white & bleached to hell!
theres no doubt in my mind who was supplying all the coke to these republican orgies…..mtg..just look at her.
No wonder we have so many gay men with husbands, who would want to marry anyone like MTG? When are they going to get her out of DC as she is now damaged goods?
