Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was on 60 Minutes last night and left CBS News correspondent Lesley Stahl speechless numerous times. Greene settled scores with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and other failed Republican politicians.
Greene stood tall in the face of all the slings and arrows the left throws at her, which Stahl reminded her of at beginning of the interview. She read a list of the insults hurled at Greene but Greene didn’t take the bait.
When the discussion turned to comments Greene has made about how our young children are being sexualized at an early age, Majorie doubled down leaving Stahl gasping for words.
LESLEY STAHL: We looked up some words that have been said about you.
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE: Okay.
STAHL: Crazy, Q-clown, Looney Tune, unhinged, moron. Pretty ugly stuff.
GREENE: Looks like the average troll in my Twitter feed, so I don’t really care.
STAHL: You’re used to it?
GREENE: I don’t let name calling bother me or offend me. I just don’t.
STAHL: How much have you styled yourself after Donald Trump?
STAHL: People say that you are Trump in high heels.
GREENE: I didn’t intentionally style myself after President Trump, but I can see how people draw those similarities. We both come from the same industry: construction. I also have pretty much a plain-speaking style and so does he.
STAHL: But also he’s often in attack mode. And you appear to be.
GREENE: Yeah. I think– but I think our government deserves it. They don’t really deserve to be respected that much.
LESLEY STAHL: The Democrats are a party of pedophiles.
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE: I would definitely say so. They support grooming children.
STAHL: They are not pedophiles. Why would you say that?
GREENE: Democrats, Democrats support– even Joe Biden, the President himself, supports children being sexualized and having transgender surgeries. Sexualizing children is what pedophiles do to children.
STAHL: Wow. Okay. But my question really is can’t you fight for what you believe in without all that name-calling and without the personal attacks?
GREENE: Well, I would ask the same question to the other side, because all they’ve done is call me names and insult me non-stop since I’ve been here, Lesley. They call me racist. They call me– sen– anti-Semitic, which is not true. I’m not calling anyone names. I’m calling out the truth basically-
GREENE: Pedophi– call it what it is.
