Marjorie Taylor Green said women are the “weaker sex” as she thanked her Republican aide Matt Gaetz for defending her amid her feud with Jimmy Kimmel.
Georgia Representative Green criticized GOP Senators Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins after accusing them of being “pro-pedophile” for supporting Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court confirmation. It is based on disputed claims that Jackson gives lenient sentences to child sex offenders.
“Whoa, where’s Will Smith when you really need him?” Kimmel quipped on his talk show, Jimmy Kimmel LiveOn Tuesday, referencing a joke Smith made about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars.
Responding to the jab, Green tweeted that “this threat of violence against me by Jimmy Kimmel has been filed with Capitol Police.”
Getz presented a scenario of Kimmel “indulging in horrific, unprovoked violence against Congressmen” before writing: “Note to @JimmyKimmel: Not only will Marjorie Taylor Green’s husband make quick work of you, but @RepMTG himself will make quick work of you.” Will work!”
“Note @RepMattGaetz—stay indoors. It’s Girl Scout cookie season,” tweeted Kimmel, which appears to be in the context of a federal investigation into the Gatz sex trafficking allegations of a 17-year-old girl.
During an appearance on Thursday’s installment of Getz’s podcast, flamboyantGreen thanked the Florida representative for getting back on a war of words.
“Matt, I’m really grateful for you, as in your character and as a man who will stand up and defend me as a woman,” she said, per business Insider, “Because we need to recognize that women are the weaker sex, and men are stronger than us.”
“And, you know, in my family if my husband were there and heard Jimmy Kimmel or someone else telling someone to kill me,” she went on. “My husband, he would not have tolerated it, and he probably would have taken action against him and rightly so because men should protect women.”
Kimmel continued to mock Greene on her ABC show Thursday, when she said during her monologue that “Once again I find myself in the middle of a braha because I think that’s probably the worst woman in American politics.” have participated.”
They accused him of trying to gain “political gains” from the issue and took a dig at how he had “called the same police he helped instigate on January 6.
“He is the one he called, the people he wanted to defame,” he said, after “processing” how someone had called the police, tweeting back, “Officer, I made a joke. I want to report.”
He then read Green’s reply, accusing him of using a “violent left-handed dog whistle” and saying that his comments would mean he would receive “new death threats.”
Insisting that he did not condone the death threats, which he receives weekly “dozens”, TV personality Kimmel accused Greene of hypocrisy by depicting him holding a gun to speak out against violence. As shown on screen.
He added: “She’s the one who supported fringe conspiracy theories and repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians. Now she’s dialing 9-1-1 because she’s been mocked.”
“He’s a snowflake and a sociopath at the same time. An ‘snow-siopath.'”
In his latest tweet about the controversy, Green wrote to Kimmel that his fans “called my office today in direct response to inciting physical violence towards me. This is no joke. You knew exactly what you were doing.” Were were
Green added: “@ABC and their parent company @WaltDisneyCo must not allow your malice and threats of violence.”
