MTG Ripped After Accidentally Telling The Truth About 'Our Republican Majority'

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene went off on the Republican House majority in a post intended to slam Speaker Mike Johnson but ended up getting trolled by people who agreed with her assessment...but not for the reason she meant.

Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene was widely mocked after she accidentally told the truth about the Republican House majority in a post intended to slam Speaker Mike Johnson.

Writing on X, formerly Twitter, Greene lashed out at Johnson over a $1.2 trillion funding deal to avert a government shutdown while admonishing the GOP majority for, in her eyes, undermining its own agenda in regard to the ongoing border crisis.

She said:

"Our Republican majority is a complete failure. We have the power of the purse, which means we can control what the entire government does. Tomorrow Speaker Johnson is funding the government that has created this invasion."
"I'm voting NO! SHUT IT DOWN!"

Many agreed with Greene's assessment—just not in the way she might have expected.

Even California Democratic Representative Adam Schiff weighed in, observing that "Even a badly broken clock…" is right twice a day.

Earlier this month, Congress approved a comprehensive funding package, dubbed a minibus, to finance various government sectors, encompassing the Departments of Agriculture, Veterans Affairs, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Transportation, and Commerce, alongside military construction, until September 30.

Johnson's proposal encompasses allocations for the Departments of Treasury, Defense, and Homeland Security, as well as for the Securities and Exchange Commission, drawing ire from Republicans who have voiced opposition to minibus legislation.

With the final package agreed upon, encompassing six spending bills, its passage could extend past 12:01 on Saturday morning due to intricate congressional regulations. In a departure from a self-imposed regulation requiring a 72-hour review period for legislation, House Republican leaders scheduled a vote on the bill for Friday morning.

Further obstacles may arise in the Senate, where any objection from a single lawmaker could prolong debate and postpone the final vote. White House officials urged Congress on Thursday to swiftly send the critical legislation to the president's desk for signature.

Republicans touted successes such as securing funding for 2,000 new Border Patrol agents, additional detention beds managed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and a provision halting aid to the primary United Nations agency offering assistance to Palestinians. On the other hand, Democrats achieved funding boosts for federal child care and education initiatives, as well as for cancer and Alzheimer’s research.
