In a pro-Donald Trump rally held in New York City on Tuesday, Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene faced opposition from counterprotesters and politicians. The event was held ahead of the arraignment of the former president, and Greene was among the speakers.
Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 🤡🤡🤡🤡of New York celebrated the news that her far-right colleague was heckled by protesters during her speech. “Welcome to NYC! Where there are still social consequences for shameless bigotry,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, accompanied by a Statue of Liberty emoji.
According to NBC News’ Ben Collins, Greene was “completely drowned out by protesters” and was barely audible. He also noted that a Trump supporter was handing out whistles, which contributed to the noise. The New York Times reported that Greene called Democrats “communists” and touted the GOP’s positions on abortion, gender, borders, and foreign policy.
The speech drew a crowd of onlookers and counterprotesters, with someone shouting “Go back to Georgia!” as she left. Rep. Jamaal Bowman of New York was also among the protesters and criticized Greene’s presence in the city, saying she should “take her ass back to Washington.”
Greene’s controversial statements and actions have drawn widespread criticism and led to calls for her resignation. She has been accused of promoting conspiracy theories, spreading misinformation, and making derogatory remarks about minorities and marginalized groups. Her participation in the rally was seen by many as further evidence of her divisive and inflammatory rhetoric.
