Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) takes aim at Democrats over impeachment.
Taylor Greene spoke at the Capitol on Wednesday and slammed the Democrats’ impeachment of President Trump as divisive.
The congresswoman noted President Trump has held over 600 rallies in the last four years and none of them included calls to assault police, destroy businesses or burn down cities. She also suggested Democrats have a double standard when it serves their cause.
“Democrats are on record supporting violence when it serves their cause, in their own words, on social media, on interviews, and on fundraising platforms blue,” Taylor Greene said. “Democrats support defunding the police when it’s someone else’s city, someone else’s home and someone else’s businesses.”
The congresswoman added Democrats have spent “all this time endorsing and enabling violent riots,” which resulted in billions of dollars in property damage and 47 dead across the United States.
