Marjorie Taylor Greene gets in shouting match with Dem lawmakers on Capitol steps

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Friday sparked a shouting match with a pair of Democratic lawmakers outside the Capitol, prompting one of them to scream that the far-right politician should practice the biblical principle of loving one’s neighbor, videos show.

After the House passed a bill codifying the landmark Roe v. Wade abortion rights case — a move made in response to the Supreme Court ruling on Texas’ anti-abortion law — the outspoken Republican heckled Democrats holding a celebratory press conference on their legislative victory.

“This is not women’s rights,” Greene (R-Ga.) shouted on the Capitol steps.

“You’re so performative,” scoffed Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.), according to video posted on Twitter.

After exchanging more words, Greene declared, “You should all be ashamed!” before storming down the steps away from the group of Democrats who gathered outside the Capitol.

Seconds later, a fuming Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) yelled down the steps at Greene to “practice the basic thing you’re taught in church: Respect your neighbor.”

“You try being a Christian and try treating your colleagues decently!” Dingell shouted, according to the shocking footage.

This is not the first fight Greene has picked with members of the opposing party.

In May, Greene yelled at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), “Hey, Alexandria!” twice as AOC walked down a hallway, and “Why do you support terrorists and Antifa?,” calling on her to debate her “radical socialist” ideology.

She also previously got into an altercation with progressive Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.), causing the Missouri Democrat to move her office following the squabble.
