While two dodo birds of a feather used to flock together, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert are now beyond frenemies and became openly hostile to each other — behind the closed doors of the ladies room in the lobby of the House of Representatives.
The pair found themselves on opposing sections of the House floor when the Speaker’s vote went 15 rounds, and reportedly during day one (January 3) of the laborious endeavor, the two had a contentious argument in the bathroom.
One source said Greene was in a stall and, upon coming out, confronted Boebert about taking money from McCarthy for her re-election and then turning against McCarthy when it came time to vote. The Colorado Republican was allegedly unaware that Greene was also in the bathroom at the time.
“That’s when Lauren said, ‘Don’t be ugly,’” the first source said, before she—in the words of this source—“ran out like a little schoolgirl.”
Another source said Greene asked Boebert, “You were OK taking millions of dollars from McCarthy but you refuse to vote for him for Speaker, Lauren?”
When asked about the dust-up, Boebert said, “See ya later. Bye.”
One other Representative was apparently a witness to the scene, but refused to discuss it.
Both Greene and Boebert were rewarded with important committee assignments.
Boebert was awarded a seat on the Oversight and Accountability Committee.
Greene was also added to the House Oversight Committee, but was also placed on the Homeland Security Committee.
