House Freedom Caucus member criticizes Marjorie Taylor Greene's involvement in CrossFit and focus on constitutional principles
Republican lawmakers Rep. Ken Buck and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene are in a feud over impeaching Biden and the 2020 election.
In a heated clash between two Republican lawmakers, Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia are engaged in a feud over the impeachment of President Joe Biden and his vote to certify the 2020 election. The tension between the two escalated when Greene took to Twitter to criticize Buck for what she perceived as a lack of sympathy towards the January 6 rioters who were imprisoned. Additionally, she criticized his vote to certify the election, suggesting that it meant he did not support former President Donald Trump. Furthermore, Greene took issue with Buck's dismissal of the need for an impeachment inquiry into President Biden.
When asked about Greene's comments during a local radio show, Buck sarcastically referred to her past as the owner of a CrossFit gym, highlighting his own experience as an instructor at the University of Denver Law School. He emphasized that while he taught and learned constitutional principles, Greene's background in CrossFit may have provided her with a different set of values.
Buck firmly stated that the Constitution mandates that Congress count the votes and does not grant the authority to overturn election results. He criticized Greene for prioritizing social media accounts over the Constitution, expressing concern about the state of Congress when members prioritize personal gain over upholding constitutional principles.
It is important to note that Buck is known for his conservative stance and is a longstanding member of the House Freedom Caucus, while Greene was removed from the caucus due to ongoing disagreements with other members. Buck cited her irresponsible attacks on fellow caucus members as the reason for her expulsion, asserting that she should not be a member.
As of now, Greene's office has not responded to requests for comment on the matter.
