Romney Says GOP Should Have ‘Nothing To Do’ With Marjorie Taylor Greene

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is urging his party to distance itself from freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and denounce her insensitive comments.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Romney said, “We should have nothing to do with Marjorie Taylor Greene. We should repudiate the things she said and move away from her. 

He continued, “Our long history as a party has shown we should separate ourselves from people in the wacky weeds.”

“If we don’t, then our opposition tries to brand us with their image and with their point of view, which has been detrimental to any party that doesn’t do that,” he added.

The Georgia Congresswoman has previously claimed that deadly school shootings did not happen and has espoused other wild conspiracy theories. Additionally, CNN reported that in the years before she entered office, she appeared to support killing prominent Democrats.

Greene’s comments have led to an uproar with Democrats calling for her to be expelled from Congress or at least removed from her committee assignments. 

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) blasted Greene in a statement for her “loony lies and conspiracy theories,” which he said are a “cancer for the Republican Party and our country.”

“Somebody who’s suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality,” he said, adding, “This has nothing to do with the challenges facing American families or the robust debates on substance that can strengthen our party.” 

Romney has previously criticized Greene as he wrote in a tweet, “Lies of a feather flock together: Marjorie Taylor Greene’s nonsense and the ‘big lie’ of a stolen election.”

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) also encouraged Republican leaders “to stand up and say it is totally unacceptable.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is expected to meet with Greene to discuss her controversial remarks.

However, House Democrats are threatening that they will vote to strip Greene of her committee assignments if Republicans do not meet their deadline to do so. 

Responses

  1. really romney? the RINO and traitor to his voters is talking about whacky weeds?
    you have gone against the will of your voters and done nothing to help the party that put you in power. maybe you just need to learn to shut up after your 4 years of lies and spreading hate

  2. She is a champion of the American people , Romney is rino traitor hopefully gitmo bound soon

    1. She is champion of conspiracy theories and completely false information. She needs to be removed!

  3. What we are witnessing here, in real time, is the growing division of an old political party.

    You have Mitt Romney representing the old guard and Marjorie Greene representing the incoming upstarts, which includes President Who?. The same division is seen between Missing Moscow Mitch / McCain and Marjorie Greene over what to do about her unacceptable statements.

    I see this division causing a rift way wider than when the Tea Party started. There will be no turning back, this time. If President Who? does in his impeachment trial what he wants to do, that could cause the old guard to back voting guilty. If President Who? is found to be guilty of insurrection by enough American Fascists, then that Party is done. Finished. Kaput.

    1. Ted Cruz, in an interview, said that, well, maybe President Who? stepped over a line with what he did, January 6th. Maybe a little bit. He INSTANTLY got hammered by Cult-45! He was the guy who wrote the appeal that the election was stolen and they hammered HIM, for acknowledging what really happened just a little bit.

      The American Fascist Party will not be able to withstand this kind of attack for long. If more of THIS is coming, it won’t take long to implode.

  4. What about about all the Democratic Congress People who spread lies and conspiracies about Trump and Republicans?? I never heard hardly any uproar from the Republicans and especially the Democrats. Wake up Republicans your trying to play by rules, whereas the Democrats are using the rules of the street. They get to tell a lie long enough that many people start believing them, especially when Republicans don’t fight back hard. Why do think Trump was liked because he wasn’t willing to just sit there and take-it.

        1. his name “general confusion” fits him well since he doesn’t have a clue about reality

          1. Actually, tom, just the opposite must be true. Why?

            If I didn’t have a clue about something, those who DO have a clue would jump all over what I say. Doesn’t happen, tom, so you are confused about how discussions work in real life.

        2. Thanks for clarifying there Annie. You wouldn’t want anyone to be confused on who your response was to. Might make you sound smart.

    1. WHAT are these lies and conspiracies D’s spread about Trump and Republicans? That Obama was born in Hawaii? That there are 140 incidents of Trump’s campaign contacts with Russians and 10 incidents of Trump attempting to obstruct the investigation? That tax cuts don’t pay for themselves? That you don’t “Drain the Swamp” by reelecting 2 indicted Congressmen? That COVID-19 was a “Democrat hoax”? That Trump not only did NOT win in a landslide, Biden won the ED by the same count as Trump claimed his 2016 win was a landslide? That if hand recounts of election results jive with the machine counts–THEN THERE IS NO MACHINE CHANGING OF VOTES. And shock of all shockers, the Jan 6th insurgents were NOT Antifa–clue #1 Trump said he “love” them. Clue#2 NO ONE arrested has been identified as Antifa—

      1. funny, every single item you mentioned has been proven a liberal lie
        you do know repeating trump russia a million times doesn’t change the fact that it is still a lie

        1. Really Tommy Boy? Show your proof please. I won’t hold my breath. Do you just make up things on the fly?? 🤔

    2. The Democrats never rallied for an insurrection nor tried to kill members of Government.

  5. MTG appears to be nutty as a fruitcake—BUT is she nuttier than Lauren Boebert? Madison Cawthorn? Andy Biggs, Matt Gaetz? Jim Jordan? Paul Gosar? Mo Brooks? Coin toss, folks. They are all clearly nutty.

      1. Are you of the belief that Paul Gosar, Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz are not MTG level crazy? I am not so certain of that. You do realize that Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz CAMPAIGNED in the primary race for MTG? Jim Jordan is on every MAGA media outlet claiming that inciting an insurrection is “free speech.” Suddenly understandable that he could not pass the bar exam.

        1. now this is what ignorance looks like “march peacefully respectfully and patriotically” is inciting an insurgence? why don’t you finally admit after 4 years of repeating every lie and being made to look like a foo9l that you actually are a fool

        2. It’s a question of degree, Phyllis.

          Ted Cruz, Matt Gaetz is a tool, and the Jim Jordan types are only opportunists clutching Greene’s skirt. She is their conspiracy theory momma. They are independently doing their own grifts, while still trying to appeal to whoever they can in Cult-45 and, of course, to Dear Leader. They are not (yet) dealing in space lasers, although I have lost track of which other crazy right-wing conspiracy theories that they all have propounded in the past. There are far too many of them to really care (plus, I like my sanity too much to care).

  6. I believe most of what she said was said when she wasn’t in Congress. I believe the First Amendment gives her free speech. I’m more concerned what Mitt Romney has said and done against his Party. It’s hard for me to believe that he was running for US President in the past. I think he would America a favor and just retire from federal service. There was a time I would have voted for him but not now.

    1. So, what you just said, Ron, is that you aren’t going to hold a crazy person personally accountable for what they do or say, right? Especially if that person represents you or your party, right? Is that a useful clarification, Ron?

        1. Annie, Biden is not the candidate that claimed the Revolutionary soldiers successfully defended the airports or that the WH COVID Task Force should investigate injecting bleach and implanting UV light as treatment for COVID. THAT was Trump, not Biden.

        2. Another false whataboutism. Can’t you be original and actually defend Mangos right to incite a insurrection…

  7. Betcha a-penny-to-a-pound more Republicans feel that way about Mitt than do about MTG.

    1. That says a LOT about those who back her, don’t you think, Garry?

      Do you have ANY idea what some of her beliefs are? Do you even care? Or is being in your party enough for you to back her to the hilt, no questions asked?

      Do you know what important policies that she ran on, to get elected? Do you even care, Garry?

    2. So if you support Greene then you must believe that 9/11 was an inside job, the elitists are drinking babies blood, Parkland and Sandy Hook were staged and the big KICKER….Jewish aliens started the fires with lasers. Guess you’ll sell your soul to a looney tunes…

      1. And, to throw more gasoline on her fire, she believes that Geo. Soros buys and controls ALL Democrats. Earth to Greene: no, he doesn’t.

  8. Seriously, why does Romney think anyone cares about his opinion. He’s a senator and, here’s a thought, might do the work of a senator; i.e. work on legislation instead of taking pot shots at a fellow Republican and a member of the House of Representatives. I can’t wait for his term to be over and hope he has the sense not to run again.

    1. I am confused, Diane.

      What legislation does Marjorie Greene want to work on, Diane? The only thing that I have seen her do. So far, is attack the Speaker of the House and other Congress members, and grab media attention.

    2. Well Diane, Romney’s constituents think he’s doing a good job. His approval rating has climbed to 56%. Trumps was 34% when he left office. Pretty bad btw. Compared to Obama’s ..59%. George W… 49.4%. Just proves there’s more people with a working brain then not.

  9. Romney was such a piss poor candidate that he caused me to vote for Obama that election. MA couldn’t wait to get rid of him.

    1. Mitt never recovered after Candy Crowley sat on him. He is “the man without a party”. Pathetic.

  10. You know who’s in the “wacky weeds,” Mitt?? YOU! And know who I want nothing to do with at any time for any reason?? YOU!! Your high and mighty, holier-than-thou pretenses are fooling nobody and alienating millions of people who at one time probably voted for you. I can guarantee you this, though, Mitt — my very large family and circle of friends who live in Utah feel betrayed and you will NEVER see another vote from a single one of them. One word of advice for you — that’s an awfully high horse you’ve climbed onto, so beware — it’s a mighty long fall down from there, and it WILL come!!! GUARANTEED!

    1. So… Marjorie Greene? Ring a bell?

      Who cares what you think about Romney! We have dangerous space cadets IN OUR HOUSE! What should be done about HER?

      Quit trying to deflect away from the real issue here.

    2. He is still fretting over not making the cut to be President….twice. And then there was his feud with President Trump. Always the bridesmaid never the bride. But full of opinions and criticisms.

      1. Mitt is walking in the footsteps of the late John McCain.
        If not careful, he too will die a bitter old man.

      2. Just to be clear on your posting, ARE you of the belief that you want MTG, Boebert, Cawthorn, Gaetz, and Jordan to be the face of the 2021 Republican Party?

          1. Why, Annie? How is that going to make the American Fascist Party stronger? How?

            If the party splits, it will take a long time to regain its ability to weild any power again.

    3. Numbers don’t prove your point Carol. Unless of course your “family” is comprised of several million people. Lol
