Thoughts and prayers, etc. Via CNN:

In a private meeting with House Speaker Mike Johnson last week, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene accused fellow Georgia Republican Rep. Richard McCormick of getting physically aggressive with her, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter – a charge that McCormick has denied, saying it was a “friendly gesture.”

Sources told CNN that, according to Greene, McCormick grabbed Greene by the shoulders and started shaking her after the two publicly argued over their competing resolutions to censure Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib last month.

I’ve said this before, but violence and rage is exactly what Greene actively promotes and deliberately inspires among her constituents/fans, so it’s no surprise that her words and behavior would provoke a similar response from a colleague. Eventually, someone (perhaps Greene herself) will of course end up severely injured or dead. Oh well.
