Rep. Majorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA) appeared on Real America’s Voice Friday to blast Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for setting COVID-19 restrictions on the House floor. While Pelosi demands that masks be worn on the floor, she’s often seen without one, for which Taylor-Greene dubbed her the “queen of the house of the hypocrites.”

During a press conference Wednesday, Pelosi suggested that vaccinated members stay clear of unvaccinated members “because they are selfishly an endangerment to other people, including staff people here.”

“This woman is mentally ill,’ Taylor-Greene told David Brody.

Then, Taylor-Greene drew a comparison between a mask mandate and the Holocaust in Europe, saying that masks are the equivalent to the gold star Jewish people were given at the time. “This is exactly the kind of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about,” the Georgia representative said.

Pelosi has punished fellow lawmakers for not wearing a mask on the floor, while she was photographed at that Wednesday presser without a mask. She even shook hands and hugged people. However, Taylor-Greene and others have received fines for doing the same thing. The Georgia lawmaker said she’s received two separate fines in a tweet Friday.

“This is a woman that is hyper-focused on her own power and control,” Taylor-Greene said.

Trump has chosen his 2024 running mate but hasn’t told them yet

During a campaign stop on Saturday, former president Donald Trump announced he has chosen his running mate for Vice President; but they are unaware they have been picked by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

They will know soon, as the vice-presidential choice will be attending the debate between Trump and President Joe Biden set to take place next week, Trump said.

The first presidential debate between Trump and Biden will air on CNN in primetime for 90 minutes. Trump will be hoping Joe Biden’s age and apparent mental decline will be on display for a national audience.

National Review writes of the VP rumors thus far for the Republican ticket:

North Dakota governor Doug Burgum, Florida senator Marco Rubio, South Carolina senator Tim Scott, and Ohio senator J. D. Vance are names that have come up repeatedly in news reports detailing Trump’s vice-presidential selection process.

Burgum emerged as a vice-presidential option after running a long-shot GOP presidential campaign and becoming a surrogate for Trump upon dropping outof the 2024 primary.

“He’s very well regarded within the Trump circle,” a senior official in Trump’s orbit previously told NR regarding Burgum’s VP chances. He was one of many contenders slated to attend the Republican National Committee’s annual donor retreat in May.

National Review adds Rubio’s prospects of being Trump’s running mate are complicated by the Twelfth Amendment’s language preventing a presidential and vice-presidential candidate from having the same state of residence. Trump changed his official residency to Florida during his presidential term.

South Dakota governor Kristi Noem, Florida representative Byron Donalds, and New York representative Elise Stefanik are other Republicans who have been floated as potential VP selections.

Noem’s vice-presidential chances diminished significantly because of a story she told in her new memoir about killing her dog two decades ago, drawing outrage and bewilderment from across the political spectrum.

Stefanik and Donalds are two of Trump’s most prominent supporters among House Republicans.
