Far-right Congresswoman and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene's district in Northeast Georgia is nearly 2500 miles from California, but that hasn't stopped her from embarking on a Twitter feud with its Democratic Governor, Gavin Newsom—a favorite enemy of the right who's currently facing a recall election.
In an appearance on MSNBC, Newsom railed against the onslaught of right-wing disinformation regarding the virus that's killed over 600 thousand Americans, as well as the vaccines that are proven to slow its spread and reduce its severity.
In the MSNBC appearance, Newsom blamed "right wing pundits" for peddling this disinformation and contributing to the stagnant vaccination rates across the country.
He then called them out by name:
"Period, full stop. Time to be a little bit more specific. The Ron Johnsons of the world. The Marjorie Taylor Greenes of the world. The Tucker Carlsons of the world. I watch them. I listen. I pay attention. They are misinforming. They are literally putting people's lives at risk. People are dying because of the misinformation, either knowingly or unknowingly, regardless, time to call it out."
Greene has railed against virtually all efforts to boost vaccinations, even as stronger, deadlier variants of the virus continue to emerge.
She was none too happy Newsom called out the latest conspiracy theories she promoted.
And Newsom didn't mince words with his response.
Greene was predictably livid, accusing Newsom of being the murderous one and sharing an op-ed accusing him of killing seniors with his pandemic policies.
But people weren't having Greene's attempts to deflect from her own record of constant disinformation and dismissal regarding the pandemic.
They largely agreed with Newsom.
Greene is currently suing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California for imposing a mask mandate in the House.
