Outspoken GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene doubled down on calling Democrats “pedophiles,” blasted establishment Republicans and demanded that the US stop the flow of aid money to Ukraine in a wide-ranging and fiery “60 Minutes” interview Sunday.
Taylor Greene – also known as MTG – made numerous controversial comments during her sitdown with veteran reporter Leslie Stahl – and was promptly panned by many across social media.
In one of the more shocking moments, the Georgia lawmaker responded “I would definitely say so” when Stahl pressed her on previous comments she has made about Democrats being “the party of pedophiles.”
“They support grooming children,” Taylor Greene, 48, said without providing evidence.
“Democrats support – even Joe Biden the president himself – support children being sexualized and having transgender surgeries. Sexualizing children is what pedophiles do to children.”
The mostly Left-wing show faced significant backlash from liberals unhappy with the outspoken Trump supporter’s appearance.
MSNBC guest and far-Left extremist Elie Mystal was infuriated that the network referred to Greene by her nickname as if they were supporting her.
“The way you guys say her ‘nickname’ is MTG… as if it’s a cute moniker bestowed by her besties… when her initials are just MTG and her ‘nicknames’ are ‘Marjorie Three Names’ and ‘Unfrozen Caveman Congresswoman’ just shows that you’re here to launder her rep and complicit,” Mystal tweeted.
Former CNN and NBC anchor Soledad O’Brien mocked “60 Minutes” decision to interview Greene, saying the Republican is too much “in your face.”
Former GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger unsurprisingly gave his unwanted opinion saying, “Wow. Insane 60 Minutes would do this.”
Liberal actor Bradley Whitford also reacted to the show, comparing Greene to Hitler.
“Reminds me of a guy we defeated in the 1940s who wasn’t afraid to share his opinions, no matter how intense and in-your-face they were. Too bad you couldn’t interview him, @LesleyRStahl; you could have asked him about his vegetarianism and love of dogs,” he tweeted.
At the end of the day MTG just decided to speak about what she believes in.
