Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene split from her husband and announced their divorce last year. She has now begun a relationship with right-wing journalist and producer Brian Glenn [pictured with her above] of the Right Side Broadcasting Network. Greene confirmed the relationship during a podcast episode last month.
Given Glenn’s media work, he and Greene sound like two peas in a pod. However, if anyone was in any doubt, a tweet he posted yesterday, mocking basketball icon Brittney Griner, made it clear.
“Good Morning to all the men this morning except to #BrittneyGriner (He/Him),” Glenn tweeted. “It shouldn’t surprise anyone that a man is now the face of a women’s professional basketball league. #WNBA”
Griner, who is a gay cis-woman, was detained for ten months last year in Russia for carrying a cannabis vape cartridge in her luggage. She was released as part of a prisoner swap negotiated between Russian and US authorities.
Last Friday, Griner made her return to the WNBA for the first time since her detainment. Her team, Phoenix Mercury, played LA Sparks.
Online, many made the same point in response to Glenn’s tweet.

You're dating MTG and you're commenting on the masculinity of another woman?
That takes a lot of balls.
Not as many as your girlfriend has…but still.
Somebody in a thing with Marge shouldn’t be pointing and laughing at women he thinks are masculine.— Al Cappuccino…☕️🇮🇹 (@AlCappuccinoIT) May 22, 2023
Why they so triggered about LGBTQ? Must be exhausting to hate so much.— Bryan Adams (@bryancadams) May 22, 2023
Brian Glenn dons drag
Glenn also made waves on Twitter over the weekend when an old video of him in drag resurfaced.
Greene has made clear her views on gender identity and has slammed the notion of trans rights. She has also spoken out against drag queens.
Yesterday, she shrugged off the video of her boyfriend in drag, saying it was years ago for a news show he worked on. Therefore, it was clearly OK.
“I’m literally lol’ing,” Greene tweeted. “@brianglenntv dressed in drag for morning news in Dallas years ago reporting on an upcoming local theatre production and the morons over at Patriot Takes think this is an attack. Brian loves the throwback and is reposting. 😂The left is so stupid.”
Again, her hypocrisy prompted plenty of comments.

I like how you took time to specifically clarify and defend this one thing concerning drag and this instance is ok. Thank you for once again showing what's good for me is not for thee. Drag your little heart out Brian! 🌈 pic.twitter.com/n97ta6bw6J— 🐾 A to the Z 🐾 (@amber_zellmer) May 22, 2023
