There’s a reason Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene no longer seem to get along with each other. They each arrived in Congress as part of an extremist pro-Trump Republican bender, but that notion has since lost its luster. Greene is is in a safe far right district, but needed to sell out to Kevin McCarthy in order to get her committee assignments back. Boebert nearly lost reelection in her district, which is much more moderate than Greene’s, and now Boebert seems to change strategies daily in a frantic effort at regaining favor with her constituents.
It’s one thing for two former allies to publicly distance themselves from each other as their political interests diverge. These these kinds of “feuds” can even be choreographed for mutual benefit. But suffice it to say that Boebert and Greene aren’t very good at this. In fact they appear to be in way over their heads.
It turns out Greene and Boebert apparently had a fight in the ladies’ room on January 3rd. The Daily Beast has a rundown of the argument from multiple sources, and let’s just say that it makes them both look really idiotic. Here’s the thing: you have to be screwing up really badly for this kind of thing to be public.
Think about it. If two members of Congress from the same party are going to have an ugly private argument, the restroom is not a good place for that. There is, obviously, the strong potential for witnesses – as evidenced by the fact that multiple other people who were in that restroom have now decided to tell the public about that argument.
In other words, Boebert and Greene don’t know what they’re doing. If this is a choreographed rivalry, then they’re doing it all wrong, because they’re not helping their own cause. And if this isn’t choreographed, then it means these two are so out of control, they’re fighting with each other in front of unfriendly witnesses. Either way, as the spotlight of the House majority shines more brightly on these two idiots, they’re probably just getting started humiliating themselves.
