MTG fighting back critics: ‘Shame on Fox News … Karl Rove can go kiss my a**’

Marjorie Taylor Greene appeared recently on fellow Republican Matt Gaetz’s podcast Firebrand, and she didn’t pull any punches.

It started as Greene and Gaetz watched a clip from Fox News Sunday, in which former White House chief of staff Karl Rove was asked to weigh in on the audio leak of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, in which he appeared to consider asking President Trump to resign in the wake of the events on January 6th.

“Give us the long view on the impact of this leak, both for McCarthy and for House Republicans,” the show’s host, Sandra Smith, asked Rove in the clip.

“Well, I think it’s a blip,” Rove responded. “I don’t think it’s going to be consequential in the long term. McCarthy has very strong ties among most of the elements of the Republican conference. There may be a few dissidents, the sort of Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene wing of the party, which seems to consist of basically two people, but, uh, I don’t think this is going to be a significant blip.”

Obviously, it was a statement that didn’t go over well with Gaetz and Greene.

“Do you think that there’s a coalition,” Gaetz asked his guest, “that can lead a Republican conference and a Republican majority that is able to just ignore and cast aside those of us who are just a little more outspoken about things?”

“No,” Marjorie Taylor Greene laughs, dismissively.

“I want to tell you about Karl Rove,” she continues. “Karl Rove’s wing of the party is the failure part of our party. They’re very much the operating component that led us into never-ending foreign wars, that killed American soldiers. Brought them home with missing limbs, gave them PTSD, gave them addiction to narcotics and medications that led to addiction to meth, that led to addition to heroin, that just destroyed people’s lives.

“Their wing of the party led us to this massive debt the American people are in. Their wing of the party sent our jobs overseas. Their wing of the party is the complete failure that exists here in this town, Matt, and nobody cares about what Karl Rove has to say! Everyone cares about what you have to say, people care about what I have to say, people care about what Donald J. Trump—the 45th President of the United States—has to say. People care about our wing of the party. But you want to know why? Our voters are our wing of the party, the vast majority of them.

“So Karl Rove can go kiss my ass,” she concluded, “’cause I could care less what he has to say about any of us, and he’s dead wrong, he’s disconnected, and shame on Fox News for constantly having him on there.”

Matt Gaetz agreed.

“I do not believe,” he said, “that there is a single Republican running in a single primary in America, who would rather stand on stage with Karl Rove, or Chris Christie, than Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz. The proof’s in the pudding.”
