Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who was stripped of her committee assignments after calling for the execution of Democrats, is “tickled” to be speaking to El Paso County, Colorado, Republicans August 6.
“I cannot wait,” Greene told KNUS Randy Corporon last week to promote the event. “…I’m just tickled to be the keynote speaker. I’m excited to meet great patriots. I love going all across the country.”
“My good colleague Lauren Boebert, she’s got some really great people. So I can’t wait to come to Colorado,” said Greene. “We need an army of America First members of Congress.”
Speaking to Corporon over the weekend, El Paso County GOP Chair Vickie Tonkins, who apparently spearheaded the effort to invite Green, said she’s received criticism from fellow Republicans for asking Greene to speak at the fundraising event.
“I get opposition after opposition for the fact that I’ve invited Marjorie Taylor Greene to speak at our Lincoln Day Dinner,” said Tonkins.
“All the pushback I receive is from quote-unquote Republicans. And I think it’s a travesty that we have this kind of resistance in our own party,” said Tonkins.
“I’m going to call people out for not supporting the people they should be supporting,” said Tonkins
Green, who also once said that California fires were caused by space lasers, said it was a gift that she was stripped of her committee assignments, giving her time to focus her energy elsewhere.
