Last week, some GOP lawmakers were ready to call Marjorie Taylor-Greene. The criticism came from the usual suspects Adam Kinzinger and Mitt Romney.
The party leadership had largely remained silent. Until Mitch McConnell beat up the Georgia Congressman in a statement Monday night.
The Kentucky Senator wrote: "Anyone who has suggested that a plane might not have hit the Pentagon on September 11th, that terrible school shootings were staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.'s plane is not alive in reality." This has nothing to do with the challenges American families face or the heated debates about the substance that can empower our party. "
Not surprisingly, Taylor-Greene accepted the criticism. She went to Twitter and wrote: "The real cancer for the Republican Party is weak Republicans who can only lose gracefully. That's why we're losing our land. "

That's why we're losing our land.

The Georgia congresswoman also took time Monday to brag about her relationship with the 45th president. She said to OAN: "But he's really fine. I look forward to visiting him soon and continuing to call and speak to him regularly. The good news is that he supports me 100 percent and I've always supported him. President Trump is always there for the people and is going nowhere. I look forward to coming to him and what his future plans might be. "
