Marjorie Taylor Greene insults Jasmine Crockett’s ‘fake eyelashes,’ Texas Democrat calls her a ‘bleach blonde’

At a heated House Oversight Committee hearing Thursday night, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., insulted Rep. Jasmine Crockett’s appearance, accusing the Texas Democrat of having “fake eyelashes,” according to news reports.

The exchange began during a hearing on whether to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt when Greene asked if any Democrats on the panel were employing the daughter of the judge overseeing former President Trump’s New York hush money trial, according to The Hill.

Crockett questioned what that had to do with Garland.

“I don’t think you know what you’re here for,” Greene replied. “I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., moved to strike Greene’s words and make her apologize, NBC News reported. “Are your feelings hurt?” Greene replied

Greene asked why Ocasio-Cortez did not debate her, saying she did not have “enough intelligence” for a debate.

Ocasio-Cortez called Greene “baby girl” and said “it’s pretty self-evident” why she did not debate her.

Greene agreed to strike her words but refused to apologize.

Questioning a ruling Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., made about Greene’s comments, Crockett asked: “If someone on this committee then starts talking about somebody’s bleach blonde bad built butch body, that would not be engaging in personalities, correct?”

“Uh, what now?” Comer asked. “I have no idea what you just said.”

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., told Crockett she was “out of control” and to “calm down.”

“Don’t tell me to calm down,” Crockett said. “If I come and talk shit about her ya’ll gonna have a problem.”

The exchange ended with the panel voting to allow Greene to continue speaking.
