Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is getting called out online for some stern words she had for non-biological parents.

Speaking with creepy rightwing troll Alex Stein – who got attention last week when he harassed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on the Capitol steps and called her a “sexy… big booty Latina” – Greene said that children are in “great danger” because “traditional family values are being destroyed.”

“The idea that mom and dad together – not fake mom and fake dad – but the biological mom and biological dad, can raise their children together and do what’s right for their children, raising them to be confident in who they are, their identity, their identity is, you know, they’re a child made by God…” she said on her Facebook show MTG: Live.

Online, people thought she was talking about adoptive parents. Several people brought up the irony of the rightwing politician – just as many conservatives are saying that parents forced to carry pregnancies to term should just put their children up for adoption – calling adoptive parents “fake mom and fake dad.”

Later in the broadcast, Stein justified racially catcalling Rep. Ocasio-Cortez at her place of work. He called her his “favorite big booty Latina” and said she is “hot hot hot like a tamale.”

“You’re a comedian, you’re doing what you do, saying things that are actually quite the compliment,” Greene said, bringing up the video.

“I was complimenting! She’s Jenny from the Block! I mean, J. Lo is known for her voluptuous derrière, and all I was trying to do is say you look great,” Stein said. “But they live in a society where compliments are bigotry.”

“But how we feel in our culture,” Greene said, “where we believe in, um, you know, two genders – male, female… I think women should be confident. If a man gives you a compliment, a woman can say thank you. That’s a good thing, say thank you.”

This is a video of the “compliment” Greene and Stein were referring to.

Stein opposes letting kids interact with drag queens because he believes that straight boys will get turned on by drag queens and end up “sexually confused,” he said in a debate with YouTuber Vaush.

“Some of these drag queens, they’re so effective with their make-up, they’re so effective with their synthetic breasts and their thongs, you could very easily be confused,” Stein said.
