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 her 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 U.S. 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 subjects ranging from the September 11 attacks to 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.
