Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) unleashed a scathing critique against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Friday, escalating the ongoing feud between the two lawmakers. The dispute revolves around Waters’ criticism of Greene’s use of a PPP loan to support her business during the government-mandated shutdowns.
Taking to X, Greene expressed her frustration, accusing Waters of attacking her for accessing financial assistance, a move many individuals had to make during the pandemic-induced economic challenges. Greene highlighted that this occurred before she became a member of Congress.
In her post, Greene questioned Waters’ suitability for the House, citing both age and alleged lack of real-life experience. She stated, “Maxine is 85 years old and has held government office since 1976!!!” implying that Waters has been in politics for an extended period without the understanding of the challenges faced by ordinary business owners.
The Georgia lawmaker went on to claim that Waters represents everything she perceives as wrong with contemporary politicians, using terms like “corrupt” and “tyrannical” to characterize her. Greene concluded her tirade by speculating about Waters’ prolonged stay in power, raising the question of whether she plans to maintain her position until her passing, a sentiment that suggests criticism toward other veteran politicians.
