Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is not a fan of being CNN’s punching bag and this time she fought back. An exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta nearly turned into a screaming match over an alleged text message calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “a traitor.”

Last Friday, the Georgia Representative attended a court testimony over her alleged involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot and whether she called for martial law prior to President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Acosta confronted Greene about text messages in which she reportedly called Pelosi a “traitor” and called for former President Donald Trump to issue martial law, the Republican said she “did not recall” those messages.

According to The Daily Caller:

“You know, Jim, you have a show, and in all fairness, you try to present this image of me to your viewers and it’s just really not correct,” Greene said.

Acosta then asserted he was “just trying to get some answers.”

“Why don’t you be honest? You know, your problem is you’re just one of those liars on television and people hate it,” Greene said. “They can’t stand the liars on television.”

Acosta then pulled up the alleged text message on his phone. Greene then pointed to a sentence where she reportedly said she did “not know on those things.”

“Why don’t you tell that story? You’re lying,” Greene said. “You’re a liar. You know why people do not like you? Because you’re a liar. Why do you want to lie on television for your viewers? You’re accusing me of something and then when you read the actual words it tells another story. It tells the truth. … When you want to be honest and you actually want to talk about me as a real person and present me fairly, then I’ll talk to you. But until then, I don’t want to have anything to do with you.”

“No, you’re politely and unprofessionally lying, because that’s what you are: a liar. A professional liar,” Greene said. “Good for you. Way to earn a paycheck.”

Get a grip! Acosta IS a liar. He is nothing more than a lying Fourth Reich propaganda puppet talking head that spins the facts to the point where it is completely false. This clown isn’t a “reporter”, he just regurgitates what he is told to say and ask because that’s what his owners want out of him.

When a reporter ? QQ , is that what he thinks he is ? attacks a respected Representative of Georgia and insults her and makes no bones about it….like he did Trump till he got his just and true cut down in return…… name calling is not good enough for any of them that act like bullies and are lacking for words to carry on a decent and respectful conversation.
Thumbs up Mrs, Green, you sic em, Girl. Grin……bet you $$ he gives you space now when he sees you headed his way.
