Here’s The Tea On That Crazy Congressional Catfight Involving Reps MTG, AOC, And Crockett

A congressional committee hearing devolved into what could've been a scene from the 90s flick, 'Mean Girls.'

This exchange is precisely why we should not put politicians on pedestals and treat them as though they’re better than the rest of us. They’re just people. Far too few of them view public office as a service to the public and the general well-being of society.

The degradation of the quality of our public officials and the baseness and pettiness they are capable of was on full display on Thursday evening in a House Oversight Committee hearing that was convened to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with the subpoena demanding the release of the audio of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s interview with President Joe Biden. That would be the interview that caused Special Counsel Hur to conclude that Biden was “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” and therefore he would not file charges against the President for possessing classified documents. President Biden has now asserted Executive Privilege to conceal the recordings from Congress and the public. Good luck with that.

Unfortunately, the absolute gall of the Biden administration in its attempt to hide this President’s inability to do his job isn’t what made headlines. Instead, it was a bipartisan catty exchange with a trio of women in Congress.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) started by asking if anyone on the committee was working with New York Judge Juan Merchan’s daughter who runs a leftwing political consulting firm that is currently fundraising off of the absurd New York Trump trial that has yet to announce what crime he is alleged to have committed. Answering her own question, Greene stated that Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY) is indeed a client of Authentic Campaign, the political and fundraising firm run by Loren Merchan. Presumably, Greene said that to get it in the Congressional record — a pretty savvy move on her part.

That’s when clueless freshman Representative Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) weighed in asking what that had to do with the hearing to hold AG Garland in contempt. As though the collusion to weaponize the justice system against the former President isn’t something that is currently happening.

MTG responds by saying something about Crockett’s fake eyelashes making it hard for her to read.

That was when all hell broke loose.

If you’re goin’ after a black woman’s fake eyelashes, you best not miss.

Crockett was outraged and all, “Oh, no, you didn’t!”

And as Chair James Comer (R-KY) tries to get control, the situation spirals into chaos.

“That’s beneath even you, Ms. Greene,” says Ranking Member Jamie Raskin (D-NY).

AOC chimes in (because she can’t not jump in on what she knows will be a viral moment) and makes a motion for MTG’s words be struck from the record, starts yelling about how it’s so offensive to pick on someone’s looks like that, and demands an apology. (AOC didn’t seem too outraged when her colleagues were mocking the former President’s skin color or hair … but I digress …)

MTG is basically like, “Nah. I said what I said.”

That’s when AOC puts on the flamboyant faux outrage she knows gets media attention and “code switches” to street speak.

“Oh, girl! Baby girl, don’t even play,” said AOC. (Yes, that is a direct quote.)

“Baby girl?!” asked MTG incredulously.

Sometime later, Rep. Crockett finally came up with a comeback to MTG’s dig at her fake eyelashes and brought it up as a way to “clarify” what is and is not a personal attack.

“If someone on this committee then starts talking about somebody’s bleach blonde bad built butch body, that would not be engaging in personalities, correct?,” she asks Chair Comer, clearly dissatisfied with how he handled the situation. (It’s unclear if she was batting her fake eyelashes as she made the nasty remark.)

“Uh, a… What now?” was his response.

But she wasn’t finished.

She went off implying that it was a race thing.

“No, don’t tell me to calm down! Y’all talk noise and then you can’t take it. Cuz if I come and talk sh*t about her, ya’ll gon’ have a problem!” she shrieked looking like she was getting ready to take off her earrings and start throwing hands.

How absurd!

I mean … it’s not like MTG made a snide remark about her weave.

Here’s video:

Here are the chapters of this saga.

CHAPTER 1: The Provocation

CHAPTER 2: AOC Comes To The Rescue And Code Switches

CHAPTER 3: Crockett’s Revenge

The final chapter is a woman who wasn’t even involved in this Congressional rendition of Mean Girls Congresswoman Laruen Boebert (R-CO).

This is her reaction to the chaos:

Sure, she didn’t cross herself properly, but in that moment — she was all of us.

Congresswoman Boebert later issued an apology to the country for the behavior of her colleagues.

It was the right thing to do and if her colleagues had a little humility, they’d do the same.

Biblical Badasses: The Women

In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
