Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (MTG) don’t like each other. One is as far to the left as possible, while the other is to the right. They have also never backed down from a fight – and this time, it has taken place on Twitter/X, allowing all of us to follow along.
It all starts with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer changing the dress code over the weekend to accommodate Senator John Fetterman’s desire to wear hoodies and shorts to work rather than the professional suit and tie that has always been. Schumer quietly made the changes over the weekend to avoid criticism.
Fetterman has not been professional since being elected into the Senate – and now the dress code change is the final straw for MTG.
MTG took to Twitter to say, “The Senate no longer enforcing a dress code for Senators to appease Fetterman is disgraceful.” She went on to explain that it was about etiquette and that the Dems are lowering the bar.
Fetterman jumped in by saying that the House “Lives by a higher code of conduct: displaying ding-a-ling pics in public hearings.” This was in reference to MTG displaying graphic photos of Hunter Biden having sexual relations with alleged hookers. The photos were censored, but she used them during a hearing in July regarding the IRS whistleblower case.
It’s obviously not the same thing, but Fetterman isn’t that bright – and it’s all that he could come up with. He’s also not mature enough to say penis instead of ding-a-ling, but MTG decided to let that one go.
Rather than allowing the fight to stay between the two, AOC found the opportunity to jump in. She doesn’t work directly with Fetterman since she’s in the House and he’s in the Senate. They’re not even from the same state. AOC just wanted to fight MTG.
AOC commented that “Aren’t you the one who did revenge porn in a hearing.”
Lame. Fetterman already used that argument.
MTG came back with, “Are you OK with Hunter Biden violating the MANN Act, which is human sex trafficking?” That’s when the argument ended.
“Revenge porn,” as AOC wanted to call it, was a way for MTG to point out exactly what Biden was guilty of. It was inside of a hearing.
Dressing in a hoodie and shorts on a daily basis for the world to see is not even close to the same level – and what Fetterman does daily is setting the bar low. MTG did what she had to in order to draw attention to Hunter’s crimes.
As of the time we’re writing this, AOC hasn’t responded. She likely won’t, either. She usually runs away from Twitter/X arguments when she realizes she can’t win. She’ll probably cry to her Instagram following instead.
Meanwhile, the reality is still there – Schumer lowered the bar for the Senate without asking for anyone’s opinion. It’s all so that the thug named Fetterman can continue to look like a thug rather than rise to the occasion and look like a stand-up guy.
