Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene calls House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ‘mentally ill’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene during an interview on The Water Cooler with host David Brody described House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “mentally ill.”

David Brody noted that Pelosi on Thursday made comments indicating that unvaccinated lawmakers could potentially be segregated in the House chamber.

“This woman is mentally ill,” Rep. Greene said. “You know, we can look back at a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany, and this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about,” the Georgia Republican said.

Just the News has contacted Pelosi’s office for comment but has yet to receive a response. Just the News also reached out to the Anti-Defamation League and the Simon Wiesenthal Center for comment but has not yet received a response.

Pelosi on Thursday said that there is a responsibility to ensure that the House “chamber is not a Petri dish,” but said this must be balanced with the need for people to be able to carry out their Constitutional duties.

“I mean we could come to a place where we say, if you don’t want to wear a mask … If you’re not vaccinated don’t even come to the floor. We have facilities up above in the gallery where people can come to vote. We don’t want to deter anybody’s ability to exercise their Constitutional duties,” Pelosi said.

Rep. Greene has received a letter from House Sergeant at Arms William Walker warning that she was seen on the chamber floor on Tuesday without a mask and that she will face fines for any future failure to wear a face mask.

“Pursuant to House Resolution 38, you were observed not wearing a mask on the Floor of the House on May 18, 2021. You were then asked by a member of my staff to wear a mask while in the Hall of the House of Representatives, unless recognized to speak by the chair,” the letter said. “This letter is to inform you that a further violation of House Resolution 38 will result in a $500 fine for your next violation and a $2,500 fine for any subsequent violation.”

“You can’t discriminate against people simply because they won’t wear a mask,” Greene said in a video on Wednesday. “And today, I refused to wear a mask on the House floor, and I received a warning from Speaker Pelosi that leads to fines if I continue to refuse to wear a mask. Well, here’s what I think of your warning Speaker Pelosi,” Greene said, before dropping the document into a paper shredder.
