Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is resorting to obscenities to attack her Congressional colleagues, referring to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as a “bitch.”
Greene was complaining about how McConnell agreed to a deal with Senate Democrats to raise the debt ceiling, or the legislative limit on the amount of debt the U.S. Treasury can take on to pay for bills that have already been incurred by the government. If Congress doesn’t vote to raise the debt ceiling, the government defaults on that debt.

The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:
Republicans have been threatening to filibuster the bill to raise the debt ceiling, but McConnell and other Senate Republicans agreed to bypass the filibuster for this bill so that it could pass with a simple majority instead of a 60-vote majority. It passed the Senate last night in a 50-49 vote along party lines.
Greene excoriated McConnell, saying he “allowed Democrats to bi-pass [sic] the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION.”
“Mitch is Biden’s bitch.”
The House of Representatives is voting after midnight tonight because @LeaderMcConnell allowed Democrats to bi-pass the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION.
Mitch is Biden’s bitch.

While Greene is known for her outlandish and hateful statements, calling an elected member of her own party a “bitch” still managed to shock people online.

MTG you are a sitting member of congress elected to represent your constituents & this country. Your propensity for Jr. high name-calling is beneath the position you hold. The world is watching. Is this really the legacy you're proud to leave? Show some respect & basic manners.
