Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn' t understand that a house representative representing New York's 14th district doesn' t actually answer to a crazy woman who lives in the backwoods of Georgia.

Marjorie Taylor Greene obviously has a lot of time on her hands these days. Stripped of her committee assignments for a series of xenophobic and anti-Semitic comments -- not to mention her public support of the QAnon conspiracy theory -- Greene simply doesn' t have all that much to do Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger , a frequent critic of the rise of former President Donald Trump and the performative politics Trump ushered into the GOP, tweeted this Thursday morning of the Greene - AOC confrontation : "While I may not agree with @ AOC on issues, I've never seen her

"While I may not agree with @AOC on issues, I've never seen her confront a colleague like this. The house was created to debate emotional issues professionally, and it seems some just want attention or cannot handle their emotions," Kinzinger, who is staunchly opposed to Greene as well as former President Donald Trump, tweeted on Thursday morning.

Greene quickly fired back, writing: "Since you are short on understanding little Adam, I asked @AOC to debate me. In the chamber, to debate her destructive socialist policies. But Sandy doesn't know how to work with Republicans. Neither do you."

Representative Adam Kinzinger , an Illinois Republican , strongly criticized Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene , a Georgia Republican , saying that she has only managed to raise millions of dollars by saying "crazy stuff" and "abusing" the fears and emotions of GOP voters. While Greene is staunchly supportive of former President Donald Trump and continues to push baseless conspiracy theories about the 2020 election, Kinzinger has repeatedly slammed Trump and Republicans who remain loyal to the former president.

In a statement following the incident, a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez told the Post: "Representative Greene tried to begin an argument with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and when Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tried to walk away, Congresswoman Greene began screaming and called Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer.… We hope leadership and the Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff—especially as many offices are discussing reopening. One Member has already been forced to relocate her office due to Congresswoman Greene's attacks."

Kinzinger has repeatedly slammed Greene, saying she is not a "serious" lawmaker. Greene has repeatedly promoted groundless conspiracy theories and expressed a belief in QAnon before she entered Congress. Her previous social media activity has suggested she is supportive violence against other lawmakers as well. Greene was formally rebuked and stripped of her committee assignments in a House floor vote in February. Kinzinger and 10 other GOP lawmakers voted in favor of that decision, along with Democrats.

Although Greene has accomplished little besides stirring controversy after controversy since she entered Congress, she has aligned herself closely with Trump. The GOP lawmaker has positioned herself as a key defender of the former president, as she has promoted his false claims and lies about the 2020 presidential election.

Newsweek reached out to press representatives for Greene and Ocasio-Cortez for comment. Greene's press secretary sent a link to her Twitter response to Kinzinger and Ocasio-Cortez's press secretary did not immediately respond.
