is fed up with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene
's (R-GA) antics, and she doesn't care who knows it.
Except for the Georgia
congresswoman, of course.
On Friday, “The View
’s” resident conservative took to Twitter
to blast Greene for chasing down Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
and, according to eyewitnesses, screaming
Greene also tried to harass Ocasio-Cortez during a February 2019 visit to the New York Democrat's office, according to CNN
McCain was displeased with Greene's actions and tweeted that she was "behaving like an animal."
McCain went on to say that “harassing @AOC like this only serves to give Democrats
what they want, which is to paint all of us as psychotic barbarians!”
You're acting like an animal - harassing @AOC like this only gives Democrats what they want, which is to paint all of us as psychotic barbarians! Aside from the fact that this is simply abusive and abhorrent behavior from anyone, let alone a sitting member of Congress. https://t.co/HKMeenyhu3— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) May 14, 2021
Although McCain's tweet appears to be a scorched-earth statement, many Twitter users pointed out that it did not actually "at" Greene, which means the congresswoman may only see it if she actively searches for her name (which may be a better use of her time than her current activities).
She @'d AOC but not MTG, which isn't an invitation for anyone else to snitch tag her. https://t.co/ADj6GzEjFq— Portia J&J McGonagal (@PortiaMcGonagal) May 14, 2021
Some praised McCain but felt she did not go far enough in her criticisms.
@mtgreenee, this is a deranged Republican representative. What does that say about the character of the current Republican Party
? I think Meghan's "animal" label is very generous. https://t.co/ABnKpAgVQ9— Vanessa Gorman - Good Trouble (@VanessaGorman9) May 14, 2021
Others believed McCain was attempting to have it both ways by criticizing Greene while remaining in the good graces of the GOP
But when your party's leadership allows MTG to do this time and time again with no consequences, WHY wouldn't we assume the worst? https://t.co/HpdjL1IuJD— judi scandiff (@jscandiffwow) May 14, 2021
And here is Ms. Muh Daddy Was JOHN MCCAIN! pointing out the real issue - that this makes Republicans
look like "psychotic barbarians." I mean, the GOP just ousted Liz Cheney
for being honest, but keep telling yourself the GOP is sane if it helps you sleep

What is Meghan talking about? MTG? She only tags AOC and qRT's Andrew.And no, Meghan, Democrats do not want this. We despise people
like MTG, Boebert, and all the other GQP nuts taking over your party. This is what happens when you put party over country, an anti-government party. https://t.co/5Xk7WXD8xv— Mike (@FuMikechu) May 14, 2021
