'She confronted me': Marjorie Taylor Greene defends cussing out Lauren Boebert on House floor
Fox News/screen grab

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said on Sunday that it was "unfortunate" for a contentious House floor conversation with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) to become public.

Greene confirmed last week that she called Boebert a "little bitch" during the House floor confrontation because both lawmakers had introduced articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden.

"You haven't exactly shied away from this," Fox News host Howard Kurtz told Greene on Sunday.

"Well, you know, I find it unfortunate that Lauren Boebert leaked that conversation that we had to the press," Greene said. "But once she leaked it out, I had to confirm that that's, in fact, what I said."

Greene said the "real issue" was that Boebert had not co-sponsored her impeachment effort.

"I had asked her to co-sponsor my articles of impeachment against Joe Biden on the border, and she never responded and apparently refused to do so," the Georgia Republican complained. "Then, when she introduced her own and forced them to the floor with a privilege resolution without even having the courage to talk to any other Republican in our conference before doing so, except Speaker McCarthy and apparently a few others, yeah, we had a tense conversation when she confronted me about things I had said about it."

"But this is unfortunate that this becomes public on the House floor," she added.
