On Amazon, a major digital marketplace for the sale and purchase of books, a new memoir from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) isn’t off to a stupendous start. As of early Monday afternoon on the East Coast, the book was ranked 8,746th among books in general, suggesting dismal sales on the leading site. It was 22nd in the category “Political Commentary & Opinion.” All of these figures came after nearly a week following its November 21 release.
“Known for her humor and honesty, MTG offers a never before seen glimpse at her decision to give up private sector success for public service,” a description for the book says. Humor? Reviews on the site, though there weren’t many, were also dismal. “i couldn’t even get thru half of the book,” one reviewer identifying themselves as “greg” stated on Amazon. “MTG is living in a different world then most people.” Selling better in the political commentary category were books both conservative and liberal in orientation, including a recent volume by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
Greene, meanwhile, continues clamoring for an impeachment to move forward in Congress. She has recently targeted Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas with such an effort, drawing on the House GOP’s reserve of outright lies regarding the current situation at the southern border. (There has not in any reasonable sense been an invasion of America.)
Greene also continues promoting the evidence-free conspiracy theory that supporters of ex-President Donald Trump weren’t actually to blame for organizing and propelling the violence on January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol. She has an ally in Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.), who bizarrely claimed during a recent hearing that multiple nondescript, seemingly white-painted buses in a photo he trotted out had carried secret feds towards the Capitol. He presented no supporting evidence, and FBI Director Christopher Wray, who was testifying, denied the gist of what Higgins claimed.
