Rep. Jasmine Crockett Reveals What Happened Off-Camera During Clash with MTG: 'It Was Gonna Get Into a Fight'

Share

Members of the Squad were ready to rumble last month when Democratic Rep. Jasmine Crockett of Texas could not take a comment from Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.

Crockett said that even as Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York lashed out at Greene verbally, Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts was willing to go one step further, according to the Independent.

“When AOC jumped in so quickly, what people didn’t see off camera was that Ayanna Pressley was ready to jump in and stood up and… it was gonna get into a fight,” Crockett said.

She noted that Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin also spoke up for her, saying, “That’s beneath even you, Ms. Greene.”

“They have no idea that Raskin as well was in the middle of this and we were going back and forth with Comer,” Crockett said, referring to committee chair Rep. James Comer of Kentucky.

Crockett said having non-white females ready to brawl is a good thing.

“The bigger story that kind of emerged from this was what women of color face at work,” she said. “When you’re by yourself, people take liberties, but when they realize that you’re not by yourself, it definitely puts them in a different light and puts them in a different stance.”

Democratic Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania had a different take, saying that the incident made him want to apologize to Jerry Springer for having compared his show to Congress, according to Axios.

Last month, a House Oversight Committee devolved into chaos when amid verbal sparring between Crockett and Greene, Greene said, “I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading,” according to WAGA-TV.

Is it bad for the country to have incidents like this occurring in Congress?

“Why don’t you debate me?” Greene said, leading Crockett to fire back, “I think it’s pretty self-evident.”

“You don’t have enough intelligence,” Greene responded.

Crockett tried to have Greene officially scolded, and then fired off an insult

“Just to better understand your ruling, if someone on this committee then starts talking about somebody’s bleach blonde, bad-built, butch body, that would not be engaging personalities, correct?” Crockett said.

Greene late responded with an Instagram post of her workout.

“Yes my body is built and strong NOT with nips, tucks, plastic, or silicone, but through a healthy lifestyle,” she posted.

“Soon turning 50 years old, God willing, I will continue to lift, run, swim, play sports, surf, ski, climb and LIVE this life to the fullest and enjoy every single moment!” she posted.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
