MAGA Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene took aim at fellow Republican Lindsey Graham for his willingness to help Democrats move forward on President Biden’s “radical” gun control agenda.
“Why would we have a Republican senator from South Carolina ready to go to vote on radical gun control bills?” Greene (R-GA) asked during an episode of “MTG Live.”
“They’re gonna hurt the very people that voted for him and put him in office,” she added noting that South Carolina is a red state.
“There’s a lot of gun owners in South Carolina, and they are not going to be very happy with [Senator Graham] … when he’s up here helping Joe Biden pass his communist agenda and go ahead and destroy their Second Amendment rights,” Greene continued.
“They totally violate our freedoms & they violate the due process rights that we have as Americans.” pic.twitter.com/BXXaZxOLkM

“He’s ready to vote for anything Joe Biden wants, he is ready to violate due process, and this is everything wrong with Republicans in the Republican Party,” Greene insisted, even handing out Graham’s office phone number to podcast viewers.
“I’m calling out Senator Lindsey Graham, and I’m hoping every single one of you calls his office and tell him that he is breaking his promise.”

Graham took to social media last week to express his willingness to “find common ground” with Democrats on gun control legislation.
“I stand ready to vote on ALL the proposals mentioned by President Biden tonight and encourage the Democratic Leader to bring them forward for votes,” he tweeted.
“I also stand ready to work across the aisle to find common ground – something that was absent from President Biden’s address to the nation,” added Graham.
Those proposals include the expansion of background checks and ‘red flag’ legislation, as well as raising the minimum age for the purchase of certain firearms and banning standard capacity magazines.

Says He’s Unhinged
This isn’t the first time Marjorie Taylor Greene has gone after Lindsey Graham for prioritizing emotions over reason.
Greene slammed Graham as “unhinged” after the South Carolina Senator called for Vladimir Putin’s assassination early on in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“While we are all praying for peace & for the people of Ukraine, this is irresponsible, dangerous & unhinged,” she said.
“We need leaders with calm minds & steady wisdom,” added Greene. “Not bloodthirsty warmongering politicians trying to tweet tough by demanding assassinations.”

Greene has also been a vocal opponent of another project in which Graham has aided Democrats – funding and arming Ukraine.
Graham, she said, “wants to make sure that your tax dollars are helping people in Ukraine to defend themself, but he stands ready to vote for all of Joe Biden’s gun control bills.”
Indeed, the Biden administration has been sending tens of billions of dollars of military hardware, including rifles and pistols, to foreigners in Ukraine, even as they advocate taking those same weapons of defense away from the American people.
Spike Cohen says: “The US government has been arming Ukraine, because they’re allies. The US government has been seeking to disarm Russia, because they’re opponents. In totally unrelated news, the US government seeks to disarm you.”https://t.co/e6jdBaWczR

Graham voted in favor of the Ukraine aid package saying, “Providing state-of-the-art weapons for the Ukrainian military helps the American economy.”
Greene voted ‘no’ on the House version of the package saying, “It’s time to pay attention to our country and our borders.”
I want to remind Congress we swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.
It’s time to pay attention to our country and our borders.
Today, I’m voting NO to the $40 Billion America LAST Ukraine First spending bill. pic.twitter.com/mycfSH03D4
