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.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal

In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.

Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.

Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.

Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.

Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.

Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
