'HOW DARE YOU!' All Hell Breaks Lose in Committee Hearing as Marjorie Taylor Greene Brawls with AOC and Jasmine Crockett [View all]

During the hearing, trouble began when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) asked if any Democratic committee members employ the daughter of Judge Juan Merchan, who is presiding over former President Donald Trump’s criminal trial in New York. Merchan’s daughter works for a political consulting firm whose services Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY) – who sits on the committee – has enlisted.

Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) asked Greene what relevance her question had. After some crosstalk, Greene commented about Crockett’s “fake eyelashes,” which ignited the tinderbox and prompted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to demand Greene’s words be “taken down,” or expunged from the record.

Comer ruled that Greene’s words would not be taken down. Greene also attacked Ocasio-Cortez, calling her “not intelligent.”

Later, Crockett took a shot at Greene, disguised as a point of order about what constitutes a personal attack:

CROCKETT: I’m just curious. To better understand your ruling, if someone on this committee then starts talking about somebody’s bleached blonde, bad-built, butch body, that would not be engaging in personalities, correct?
