Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) blasted fellow GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) during an attack on party members who failed to support a censure against Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
Greene referred to Boebert as "vaping, groping" in connection with the Colorado congresswoman's recent incident that led to her being kicked out of a live performance of "Beetlejuice."

“You voted to kick me out of the freedom caucus, but keep CNN wannabe Ken Buck and vaping groping Lauren Boebert and you voted with the Democrats to protect Terrorist Tlaib,” Greene wrote on X.
“You hate Trump, certified Biden’s election, and could care less about J6 defendants being persecuted," she added.
“I do not have time for that. … Does that secure our border? Does that lower inflation? Does that lower gas prices? Does that lower grocery prices?… I don't care then. Does it affect public lands in Colorado's third district … No. then I don't care.” https://t.co/C4krdMaTIo

“I do not have time for that. … Does that secure our border? Does that lower inflation? Does that lower gas prices? Does that lower grocery prices?" Boebert reportedly told a reporter.
"I don't care then. Does it affect public lands in Colorado's third district … No. then I don't care," she continued.
Greene has increasingly spoken out against fellow party members since her forced exit from the House Freedom Caucus.
In addition to attacking Boebert, Greene has targeted Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) and called out by name the 20-plus Republicans who failed to support her censure effort against Tlaib.
The remarks continue to position Greene as a Trump supporter increasingly at odds with the Republican Party, adding to her longtime role as an outspoken firebrand and far-right congresswoman.
Many conservatives have been fans of some of Greene's views but her recent attacks on fellow Republicans have led to increased division about support for her as well.
