Greene, who broke from her traditional allies to help McCarthy’s speakership ― successfully guaranteeing her return to committee assignments she’d been stripped of in 2021 over violent and racist rhetoric ― threw it again in Gaetz’s face.

“Too unhealthy we’re weeks behind after you spent every week solely getting MTV from 5 to 1,” she tweeted again, referring to the “movement to vacate” rule change McCarthy agreed to safe the help of his Republican opponents. Beneath the brand new rule, just one member of Congress is required to deliver a movement to vacate, forcing a vote to take away the speaker.

“Because the main MAGA voice in Congress, I sit up for committees,” Greene added.

Gaetz adopted up with one other pleasant tweet.

“Properly, we obtained just a few different issues, however I’m thrilled the MTV is again to the pre-Pelosi commonplace,” he wrote. “Completely price it! We, the Individuals, will probably be in higher palms with MTG holding the corrupt Biden Admin accountable by way of committee service. I’m so right here for it.”

It didn’t appease Greene:
