QANON supporting Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene boasted she had a “great” call with the former president – and then went on a tirade against Democrats and socialists.
The conspiracy theory believer announced she had spoken to former President Donald Trump on Saturday, all the while there are calls for her expulsion from Congress over her social media activity in the past endorsing the execution of Democrats.
“I had a GREAT call with my all time favorite POTUS, President Trump!” Greene wrote in a series of tweets. “I’m so grateful for his support and more importantly the people of this country are absolutely 100% loyal to him because he is 100% loyal to the people and America First.”
“You can never beat him because We The People have his back,” she continued. “The blood thirsty media and the socialists hate America Democrats are attacking me now just like they always attack President Trump.”
Her tweet references newly surfaced social media activity from her account showing her endorse ideas calling for the execution of top Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Although she said she would “never apologize” for her actions, she placed blame on her “social media teams” for the activity, just as Congressional Republicans are trying to distance themselves from the president’s actions on January 6 – and the conspiracy theories that stoked the Capitol riots.

Greene, a vocal supporter of far-right groups and QAnon, said she would not step down from her position just as others have called for her ousting.
An aide for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told CNN he plans on speaker with the Georgia Republican next week, but she is facing severe criticism for her comments in 2018 and 2019 in addition to her anti-Muslim and anti-transgender remarks.
“I won’t back down. I’ll never apologize,” she tweeted. “And I’ll always keep fighting for the people. For me, it’s America First!!! Any elected politician that isn’t putting America First doesn’t deserve their position or the people’s trust.”
She then turned her attention to Democrats in her Twitter rant, saying there was “an enemy from within” and pointed to “socialist policies and America last sell outs who are pompous hypocrites that believe they are untouchable elites.”
“While I along with all Republicans denounced the Capitol attack and were victims inside as well, our Democrat colleagues try to lie and blame us for violence we had nothing to do with and have condemned all along.”

While Republicans have stayed quiet on Greene’s remarks and are figuring out how to navigate through Trump’s impeachment trial as they try to maintain his supporters, over 50 House Democrats have already called for Greene’s ouster.
Georgia Democratic Representative Nikema Williams is a co-sponsor of a bill to censure Greene.
“We saw a direct attack on the United States Capitol because of the rhetoric and incitement of violence she continues to do,” Williams said.
