Republican voters have proven in recent elections that they’re more interested in Twitter trolls than leadership, and no elected officials embodies that more than Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

American Marine Trevor Reed, who was recently released from a Russian prison after being falsely accused, found guilty, and sentenced to nine years in prison. Greene stalled the vote on the released of Reed from that prison when she called for a roll call vote to put all bills and resolutions for the day off until later so she would have time to protest the COVID stimulus bill passed by President Biden.
Reed held nothing back in the interview, calling out Greene and others like her.:
‘Yeah, thank them for voting against a bill that was only about getting American political prisoners out of Russia. How do you – how do you justify that? That’s embarrassing to me that anyone who represents the United States would vote against something, you know, like that.’
Reed also said that the biggest winners from Greene’s stunt was the Russian government, who were sure to be happy to see his release delayed and the American Congress working for them.
‘I’m sure that… they’re all big fans of all of those congressmen who did that. That is completely unacceptable to me, it’s embarrassing, and I better not ever see that happen again to any other Americans, because I promise that I will be at every single campaign that that person runs for the rest of their life to tell everyone that they did that.’
Twitter had a lot to say about Greene and her antics. Read some of their comments below:
