Taylor-Greene Interview with Todd Starnes Highlights Rift Among Republicans

In the interview Greene defended herself against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s implication that she is a cancer in the Republican Party.

Controversial Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene of Georgia has her fair share of supporters and detractors within her own party. But many prominent voices within conservative media  have rushed to defend her amid a Democratic push to have her expelled from The House of Representatives for “having embraced conspiracy theories, including that school shootings and 9/11 were staged”, according to the BBC.

While Tucker Carlson defended Greene on his show Monday, Greene herself was a guest with Todd Starnes on Tuesday to tell her side of the story. That ultimately led Starnes, a Conservative, to call the top Republican in Congress, Mitch McConnell ,“sleazy” and “a dirt bag”, highlighting the growing rift in the Republican Party.

“Marjorie Taylor-Greene is the most hated person in Washington and I honestly don’t know why,” Starnes said. “I suspect the reason they hate her so much is that she supports Donald Trump.”

In the interview Greene defended herself against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s implication that she is a cancer in the Republican Party.

“The cancer within the party is not me, but it is those Republicans who lose gracefully without standing up and fighting. Republicans have caved for years now…It’s because of weak Republicans that America is being overrun by Socialists and the Democratic Party.”

Starnes responds by calling McConnell “sleazy” and a “dirt bag”, while asking Greene to dispel the lies spread about her in the media.

“What he (McConnell) is doing is just trying to earn street cred with the Left and it’s despicable,” he said. “Big media is spreading lies about you. What are some of them?” While not addressing the media stories directly because of pending lawsuits, Greene did offer a general statement.

“The media is using other people’s comments and attributing them to me and it goes back to some social media posts from 2018,” Greene said. “I have no idea what they are talking about and I have nothing to apologize for. I don’t have to answer to MSNBC, CNN or any other member of the media. All I have to do is represent the people in my district to the best of my ability. That’s what I was elected to do.”

Starnes closes the interview by asking Greene if she has any regrets for any of the things she has said or posted on social media, many of which Starnes admits he does not agree with.

“I don’t agree with everything you say or post,” he said. “But who cares? It’s your Constitutional right to say them and now Democrats and Republicans are coming after you. Do you regret anything you have said or posted?”

“I regret a lot of things in my life,” Greene said. “I’ve done a lot of good things and I’ve done a lot of bad things. That’s why I’m so grateful I am a Christian and have the grace of God.”

“I took a pretty cool new job! Working 9-noon Monday -Friday on WJR 760,” he said. “I remember JP McCarthy as a kid on this station! I am blessed.”

The Emmy award-winning investigative reporter spent nearly 30-years at Detroit NBC affiliate WDIV before he was fired in 2019 for making an alleged racial comment about another reporter.

“The station has a zero-tolerance policy on racially insensitive comments, and they determined, despite the intent and context of my statement, that it violated the policy,” he said at the time.

Dietz garnered 17 Emmy awards in 26 years at WDIV. He began his career in Traverse City, Michigan in 1988.

WJR has not revealed if Dietz will continue hosting the show alone or if a co-host will be brought in.
