GOP leaders have faced escalating calls to punish Greene, who represents Georgia’s 14th congressional district, for her past support of conspiracy theories. On Saturday, Greene tweeted that she had a “GREAT call” with Trump and said that the former president indicated his support for her amid Democratic calls for her expulsion. “The blood thirsty media and the socialists hate America. Democrats are attacking me now just like they always attack President Trump,” she added.
Romney criticized Greene and Trump’s alleged phone call, tweeting, “Lies of a feather flock together: Marjorie Taylor Greene’s nonsense and the ‘big lie’ of a stolen election.”
Greene fired back on Saturday afternoon and accused Romney of ignoring the American public’s concerns. “‘Republican’ Senator Mitt Romney obviously cares nothing about the people’s number one concern. Please grow a pair or a spine,” she tweeted in response.
