Freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green defended herself against Democrat-led attacks.
Greene spoke on the House floor Thursday and said the public only knows her as the mainstream media portrays her. Liberal networks have attacked the Republican over past remarks she made online despite her recent apologies for the posts.
“School shootings are absolutely real,” Marjorie Taylor Greene says on the House floor. “I also want to tell you 9/11 absolutely happened … I do not believe it was faked.”

Greene then called out the Democrat elites in Congress as well as the mainstream media for being complicit in dividing our country.
“And if this Congress is to tolerate members that condone riots that have hurt American people, attack police officers, occupied federal property, burned businesses and cities, but yet wants to condemn me and crucify me in the public square for words that I said and I regret a few years ago, then I think we are in a real big problem, a very big problem,” Greene stated. “What shall we do as Americans, shall we stay divided like this, will we allow the media that is just as guilty as QAnon of presenting truth and lies to divide us? Will we allow ourselves to be addicted to hate and hating one another? I hope not.”

Currently, the Democrat-controlled House is debating on whether to remove the freshman lawmaker from her committee assignments.
