House of Reps erupts into laughter after Marjorie Taylor Greene ordered members to show


House erupts with laughter after Marjorie Taylor Greene ordered members to show DECORUM, despite previously heckling Biden at State of the Union and branding cabinet secretary a liar during hearing

  • Marjorie Taylor Greene found her calls for decorum fell upon deaf ears in the House Wednesday as she temporarily presided over the chamber
  • The right-wing congresswoman’s Democratic colleagues instead began to laugh and jeer as she requested quiet during a floor speech
  • During her roughly three years in Congress, Taylor Greene has had many loud confrontations with politicians whose views she does not share

Laughter echoed through the House of Representatives Wednesday when Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene called for decorum while temporarily presiding over the chamber.

Greene, a far-right representative of Georgia known for outbursts towards her Democratic colleagues and President Biden himself, called for decorum during a floor speech.

As House Majority Leader Steve Scalise spoke, Greene said ‘members are reminded to abide by the decorum of the House’ in an effort to quiet down her colleagues across the aisle.

Instead of changing their tones to whispers, however, Greene’s call was met with boisterous laughter, which prompted the congresswoman to repeatedly bang her gavel.

Greene’s ignored call for composure comes months after she heckled President Joe Biden during the State of the Union when she shouted ‘Liar!’ after he claimed Republicans hoped to threaten Social Security.

At last year’s SOTU, she and Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado chanted ‘Build the Wall’ as the president spoke about immigration.

In a recent Homeland Security committee meeting, MTG branded Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas a ‘liar,’ after he said his agency is fighting the drug trafficking taking place at the US southern border.

Ultimately, the Republican committee chairman, Representative Mark Green, moved to strike MTG’s labeling of Mayorkas from the record.

Democratic congressman Jimmy Gomez responded to the video of Green calling for decorum by writing that MTG ‘calling for decorum is like Leonardo DiCaprio telling people to date people their own age.’

Representative Adam Schiff tweeted: ‘I haven’t laughed this hard in a while – but Marjorie Taylor Greene just called for “decorum” on the House Floor.’

During Greene’s first congressional term, she was kicked off the House Budget and Education and Labor committees by the Democrat-controlled chamber.

Her colleagues, in a mostly party-line vote, opted to remove her from her freshman committee placements following the revelation of a number of conspiracy theories she’d shared on subjects ranging from the September 11 attacks and school shootings to the Clintons.

Though she apologized for her remarks, and stated unequivocally that ‘9/11 absolutely happened’ and ‘school shootings are absolutely real,’ the vote went against her, with nearly a dozen members of her party voting with the Democrats to remove her from committees.

Following the vote, Greene shared how she was feeling with her followers and critics. 

‘I woke up early this morning literally laughing thinking about what a bunch of morons the Democrats (+11) are for giving someone like me free time,’ Greene posted.

‘In this Democrat tyrannical government, Conservative Republicans have no say on committees anyway. Oh this is going to be fun!’

She went on to win her reelection campaign by a commanding margin.
