Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA), who has become well known for her headline-grabbing one-liners, her steadfast support of President Trump, and his America-First policies, and utter disdain for the establishment GOP which has endeared her to many grassroots Republicans broke the internet on Dec. 14th. Following Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s capitulation to the Democrat-Socialists under Chuck Schumer that allowed the passage of a debt ceiling increase to a multi-generation enslaving $31.5 Trillion, Rep. Greene took her frustration to Twitter, blasting the massively unpopular McConnell. She posted, “The House of Representatives is voting after midnight tonight because @LeaderMcConnell allowed Democrats to bi-pass the filibuster and ram through the debt ceiling increase to $31.5 TRILLION.”
“Mitch is Biden’s bitch.”

President Trump’s response to McConnell’s willful surrender of the GOP’s ONLY leverage in the Senate was equally harsh. Branding McConnell a “Broken Old Crow” he wrote in a Statement,
“Mitch McConnell is giving the Democrats victory on everything. What is wrong with this Broken Old Crow? He’s hurting the Republican Senators and the Republican Party. When will they vote him out of Leadership? He didn’t have the guts to play the Debt Ceiling card, which would have given the Republicans a complete victory on virtually everything. The Dems were ready to fold! Watch, they will use the Debt Ceiling against us at their first opportunity, and they won’t fold. It will not be pretty. GET RID OF MITCH! “
Mitch McConnell’s Betrayal, Schumer’s Appeasement and Greene’s Outrage
With the betrayal of fourteen Republicans secured at the behest of their cowardly leader Mitch McConnell as part of his “deal” with Schumer. The Senate then inevitably voted 50-49 in favor of raising the debt ceiling without a single concession from the Democrats. Mitch gave away almost everything and received absolutely nothing in return.
“As I have said repeatedly, this is about paying debt accumulated by both parties, so I am pleased Republicans and Democrats came together to facilitate a process that has made addressing the debt ceiling possible,” Schumer said.
Schumer also thanked McConnell for having “reached out across the aisle in good faith to bring us to this point.”
As The Federalist’s Christopher Jacobs wrote, “Rather than using the mismanagement of the Senate by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to extract concessions, McConnell gave two huge concessions to bail Schumer out of his self-inflicted wounds. A bill introduced on Tuesday would allow for another increase in the debt limit, and forestall expected Medicare reductions that are a sole result of Democrats’ disastrous agenda. It’s all part-and-parcel of the McConnell approach—to lose as efficiently as possible.”
Chuck Schumer gloried in his victory over the GOP, proving that the only thing Democrats will accept as “cooperation” or “bipartisanship” is complete and total surrender. While one can definitely call out Marjorie Taylor Greene for her bluntness, her lack of tact and a flair for decidedly undiplomatic speech. There is one thing that cannot be denied… she’s right.
