Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said this week that she’s considering a run for the White House during an interview on the rightwing extremist show InfoWars.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene, MTG, who I hope becomes president one day,” host Alex Jones said as he introduced her as a guest. “Hell, she’d probably be better than [Donald] Trump in 2024.”

The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:
“Can we get you to run for president in the next few years, because I think you’re one of the few people that would probably have a better voting record and have a better chance at winning than even Trump,” Jones continued as Greene beamed.
She laughed and said that she doesn’t “know what’s gonna happen” and reminded Jones that she is a “very strong supporter of President Trump.”
“But in the future we’ll definitely see what happens,” she said. “We’ll see what the people think about something like that.”
Both Jones and Greene have many opinions and beliefs that are outside the mainstream ranging from believing that President Joe Biden is using “weather weapons” to create tornadoes to believing that California wildfires were started by “lasers” in space connected to Jewish bankers. And both have histories of anti-LGBTQ statements and actions.
But it’s unlikely that either is a good judge of what voters are looking for in a president.
