GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Democrat Rep. Debbie Dingell (Mich.) faced off on the steps of the Capitol building. On Friday, Dingell began yelling at Greene, who had confronted a gang of Democrats on the steps just before.
The group of Democrats were celebrating the passage of a bill earlier in the day on Friday, which has granted women greater access to abortions. Republican lawmakers have advocated against the bill by arguing it would restrict regulations on abortions at a state level.
“Are you kidding me? Try being a Christian and supporting life,” Greene asserted. “Support life.”
Two things we learned today:
1- ALL House Democrats are evil and will kill unborn babies all the way up to birth & then celebrate.
2- You might fall down the stairs when your unhinged & hypocritically preaching about being civil, going to church & killing babies.
You’re a joke https://t.co/l1bke87NZE

The Dingell campaign later spun the altercation as a test to her ability as a tough leader by claiming to have “stood up to Greene to jam through the Democrat agenda.”
