Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) posted a video to the rightwing social media platform Gettr calling President Joe Biden vulgar expletives. Greene is notorious for continuously railing against transgender people and coronavirus prevention measures.
“Joe Biden, you’re not a president, you’re a piece of sh*t,” she says in the short video. “Thousands of Americans are stuck over there in Afghanistan, and you’re letting the Taliban kick your ass, while you’re lecturing governors about masks and vaccines. Do your job, bring these Americans home.”
While she didn’t post the video to more mainstream platforms like Twitter and Instagram – probably because she has been getting banned for spreading misinformation – people on Twitter had a lot to say about the sheer crassness of the video.
Gettr is a Twitter-like app that launched last month to be a safe space for the far-right as people like Greene and Donald Trump have been getting suspended for spreading election and COVID-19 misinformation on more mainstream platforms.
Gettr, which was started by former Trump aide Jason Miller, promises that it won’t censor content but says that it will “address” the pornographic and bathroom-related images.
Holly McCormack, a Democratic candidate challenging Greene for her seat in Congress, said, “We don’t teach our kids to use foul language like this. We shouldn’t tolerate it from a member of Congress.”
We don’t teach our kids to use foul language like this. We shouldn’t tolerate it from a member of Congress.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is the chief of people who are teaching our country to be uncivilized, uncouth, crass and downright ignorant. She needs to go.

This is truly horrific. She is a member of Congress.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a national embarrassment and she must be removed.
