Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene blasted her colleagues in Congress in a fiery interview with Tucker Carlson, claiming the country is ‘crumbling’ because of the government’s gross mismanagement.
The freshman congresswoman made the remarks on
‘This is a system that is severely failing the American people and the American people don’t know how bad it is,’ Greene declared.
Her attack was aimed not only at rival Democrats but also fellow members of the
‘Republican voters and donors are sick and tired and fed up with weak Republicans that never accomplish what they claim they’re going to do,’ Greene stated, without naming specific people.
Carlson also asked her about his report that GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy and pollster Frank Luntz are roommates. McCarthy confirmed he rented a DC apartment from Luntz but it’s not known if they lived together.
‘I was more curious, like, who gets the top bunk and who gets the bottom bunk,’ she said in response to Carlson asking, ‘Were you shocked to learn they share a toothbrush or are roommates or whatever?’

Greene – who was elected last November – revealed she decided to run for office because she was ‘so angry’ with Republicans for not taking bold action after Trump’s win back in 2016.
‘We had a Republican-controlled House and Senate and the Republicans failed us. They didn’t repeal Obamacare, they didn’t defund Planned Parenthood and they didn’t build the wall [at the southern border],’ she told Carlson.
Greene said that, after being elected, she soon realized why Congress was failing the American people.
‘The people that are there aren’t qualified to be there. They are people that can only succeed in government, or academia, or maybe they’re attorneys that couldn’t build their career bring enough so they decided to go into politics,’ she declared.
‘They sound like losers,’ Carlson stated, to which Greene said: ‘I think a lot of them ARE losers!’
‘They’re not impressive people and they can’t relate to real America. They’ve never functioned in it, they’ve never succeeded in it. They’ve never built something and been tested,’ Greene theorized.

‘Congress needs to be held accountable for every single American, and I don’t care if they’re Republican or Democrat’: Greene told Carlson she did not come to Capitol Hill to make friends
‘They don’t appreciate the hard earned tax dollars that people work so hard for that people have to pay to the government.
‘They don’t appreciate the people’s money. They waste it and throw it away. They spend it on frivolous programs that make them feel good about themselves.
‘Congress needs to be held accountable for every single American, and I don’t care if they’re Republican or Democrat,’ she concluded.
Greene has become one of the most famous new faces in Congress, hitting headlines for promoting QAnon and Pizzagate conspiracy theories.
Carlson did not ask Greene her thoughts about QAnon during their lengthy interview.
The mom-of-three has attracted ire from other Republicans for her far-right views, and has been stripped from two House committee assignments.
Earlier this year, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy acknowledged that Greene had peddled false claims on ‘school shootings, political violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories’.
She was removed from her assignments to two powerful committees – the Education and Labor Committee, and the Budget Committee – for incendiary remarks made before the election.
