The first salvo came from Boebert on The Charlie Kirk Show, where she, accompanied by some lawmakers like Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), took a swipe at Greene for whipping the caucus to vote for McCarthy — who won Greene over with promises to restore her House committee assignments.
“I’ve aligned with Marjorie and been accused of believing a lot of the things that she believes in,” said Boebert. “I don’t believe in [summarily electing McCarthy], just as I don’t believe in Russian space lasers, Jewish space lasers, all of it, no.”
Marge wasn’t having any of that guff.
“I’ve supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. President Trump has supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. Kevin McCarthy has supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. She just barely came through by 500 votes,” wrote Greene. “She gladly takes our $$ but when she’s been asked: Lauren refuses to endorse President Trump, she refuses to support Kevin McCarthy, and she childishly threw me under the bus for a cheap sound bite … Americans expect conservative fighters like us to work together to Save America and that is the only mission I’m 100% devoted to, not high school drama and media sound bites.”
In April, Politico reported that the duo had locked horns over a February appearance by Greene at a conference organized by white nationalist Nick Fuentes. The confrontation became so heated that another lawmaker had to step in, seemingly before blows could be exchanged. Republican lawmakers told the outlet that, privately, Boebert “detests” being associated with Greene, seen in Capitol circles as more of a maverick.
