Marjorie Taylor Greene Slams Anti-Trump ‘Republican’ Consultants, Calls Them Poison to Party

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, criticized those who think it’s best to distance themselves from him as being a “poison” to the GOP.

After Trump’s exit from the White House, the Republican Party struggled a bit to find its footing, with some people looking to move on from Trump. However, the former president still commands a strong following among his supporters, who are hoping he’ll make another bid for the White House, and it has created a division among Republicans.

Greene, who recently met with the former president at his home at Mar-a-Lago, called Republican consultants advocating for the GOP to turn on Trump “poison” to the party.

“All the ‘Republican’ consultants who have been running their mouths telling elected Republicans and candidates to distance themselves from Trump are the poison in our party. They can’t relate to real Americans and are too stupid to comprehend that America First is the future,” Greene posted on Twitter.

The Capitol riot on January 6 made for tumultuous final days in office for Trump, and his historic second impeachment hearing did little to help bring the party together. While the majority of Republicans were against the impeachment hearing, largely because they didn’t believe the Senate had the constitutional grounds to convict a former president, a few broke ranks and voted against Trump.

Ten Republicans in the House voted to impeach Trump and seven in the Senate voted to convict him, a stark contrast from his first impeachment when the GOP was united in its objection. In the wake of the trial, Republicans who voted against the former president faced censures, calls for their resignation, and challengers to their seats in Congress.

Trump targeted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, a once strong ally, for his statement condemning the former president’s role in the insurrection, and vowed to back primary rivals “where necessary and appropriate.”

Polls indicate that the former president still commands strong support from Republicans and Greene backed him as the leader of the party. In a video post on Twitter of the two of them, Greene said Trump’s America First policies will help the GOP be victorious in the 2022 midterms and 2024 presidential election.

“The only way to save our country and defeat the Communist Democrats is to elect strong America First Republicans with a spine, who will actually DO WHAT IT TAKES to WIN for AMERICANS!” Greene tweeted.
