Since her ascent to Congress in 2019, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been a favorite target of the Republican party due to her staunch support for progressive policies, especially the Green New Deal—an ambitious climate policy overhaul that aims to get the United States to 100 percent renewable energy within a decade.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez—known colloquially as "AOC"—first introduced the legislation during her first year in Congress. Now, two years later, Ocasio-Cortez has reintroduced the non-binding legislation with Senator Ed Markey (D-MA).

Enter freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Greene, who was stripped of her committee assignments due to prior support for deranged conspiracy theories and the execution of her now-colleagues, used Republican opposition to progressives like AOC to increase momentum for her 2020 campaign. In one campaign ad, Greene was featured with a gun next to a picture of Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive House members. Before its removal from Facebook, the picture's caption read, "We need strong conservative Christians to go on the offense against these socialists who want to rip our country apart."

For the past month, Greene—who once expressed support for the belief that California's wildfires are caused by Rothschild-owned space lasers—has been berating Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter and demanding a debate.

For her part, Ocasio-Cortez, known for her social media savvy, isn't acknowledging Greene's demands.

In her most bizarre call for debate yet, Greene posted a picture of her speaking with Ocasio-Cortez on the House floor.

Greene said she would schedule time for the debate "after I finish reading all 14 pages" of the bill.

The far-right Congresswoman's admission that she hadn't read the legislation she's been decrying for months...didn't do much to help her credibility ahead of the "debate."







Jokes soon came pouring in.



It's unclear if the debate is actually going to happen, as Ocasio-Cortez hasn't acknowledged any of Greene's increasingly desperate tweets and—unlike Greene—has committee hearings to attend.
