Marjorie Taylor Greene may have shown other MAGA Republicans how to handle woke reporters

Too many so-called “reporters” in the mainstream media are really nothing but propagandists for the Left.

They love to take past statements out of context to create “gotcha” questions to sling at conservatives.

But Marjorie Taylor Greene’s epic response to a smug Brit reporter’s question may show how other Republicans should deal with so-called “journalists.”

At Mar-a-Lago on Super Tuesday, political movers and shakers were anxiously awaiting the results of the primary elections that were taking place in fifteen states.

The voters’ decisions would impact how contests would unfold in other states in the coming weeks.

The contests were widely anticipated to be Nikki Haley’s final chance to turn the GOP nomination into a real race.

Of course, that wasn’t to be, and after Haley lost 14 of the 15 primary contests by a landslide, she had no choice but to drop out of the race the next day.

With Donald Trump imminently poised to mathematically capture the required delegates to officially become the Republican nominee for President, there were plenty of questions that reporters could ask that would be germane to how America will be governed in the future.

But reporters being reporters, one of them decided to play gotcha.

Former BBC reporter Emily Maitlis initially had a friendly exchange with Representative Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA).

So much could be asked to inform her viewers, but instead, a reporter played gotcha

At the beginning of the interview, Greene had recounted how Republicans were encouraging Nikki Haley to drop out of the Presidential race before Super Tuesday’s results had come in.

Greene said, “Well, we’ve been encouraging her to drop out and support President Trump. And I think tonight is the clear message that President Trump is the clear front-runner. He’s the winner in our Republican primary. And it’s time for Nikki Haley to drop out and support him.”

Greene then dodged questions about whether she would potentially be interested in running as Trump’s running mate, saying, “Oh, you know, that’s the question everyone asks. And no, I don’t think Nikki Haley should be on the list, but of course, President Trump will choose who he wants for VP.”

But then things changed when Maitlis changed tacks and asked why Greene and other Trump supporters supposedly love conspiracy theories.

Maitlis asked, “Could you tell me why so many people that support Donald Trump love conspiracy theories, including yourself?”

Greene replied, “Well, let me tell you, you’re a conspiracy theorist and the Left and the media spreads more conspiracy theories. We like the truth. We like supporting our constitution, our freedoms and America first.”

Then because she couldn’t help herself, Maitlis decided to up the ante and say, “What about Jewish space lasers? Tell us about Jewish space lasers.”

The question refers to a deleted Facebook post from 2018 where Greene had questioned (possibly jokingly) whether a California wildfire could have possibly been deliberately set to clear the way for a high-speed rail system by companies PG&E, Rothschild & Co, and Solaren.

Greene to propagandist: Thanks for playing and f*** off

At this point, Greene was wise to Maitlis’ gotcha game and decided she’d had enough.

Greene said, “No. Why don’t you go talk about Jewish space lasers and really, why don’t you f**k off? How about that?”

“Thank you very much,” Maitlis said as Greene walked away.

While some on the political Left were aghast at Greene’s rhetoric, Maitlis had it coming.

In the end, it’s just one more example of how a supposed journalist’s questions were not about informing her audience but were instead a political attack against political opposition.

When journalists become political hacks instead of doing their jobs, they deserve contempt and scorn, and Greene was well within her rights to show Maitlis both for her behavior in this case.
