The House Freedom Caucus swiftly kicked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, in part because of her fight with fellow Rep. Lauren Boebert.
The House Freedom Caucus voted last month to remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from the pro-Trump group, a member confirmed Thursday, indicating that her fight with Rep. Lauren Boebert was part of the group’s reasoning.
“A vote was taken to remove Marjorie Taylor Greene from the House Freedom Caucus for some of the things she did,” said Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.), a Freedom Caucus board member. When asked if she was officially out, he replied, “As far as I know, that’s how it is.”
Boebert is the communications chair of the Freedom Caucus and, very importantly, she and Greene don’t like each other at all.
People keep trying to get Boebert and Greene together, but the fight upstairs in the House where Greeene called Boebert a little b-word was the most public manifestation of the tensions between the two House Republicans.
The Freedom Caucus has never expelled a member before, but Greene pushed all their buttons becoming best friends with President Kevin McCarthy and supporting the House Republican establishment.
Rep. Greene continues to demonstrate that there could be only one group that can support his professional company.
