Marjorie Taylor Greene attacks Ilhan Omar, 'jihad squad' after Boebert apologyThe Georgia Republican posted an Islamophobic tweet, claiming the Muslim congresswoman and fellow progressives are 'terrorist sympathizers.' This has got to stop. These aren't politicians. MTG, Boebert, Gosar and Cawthorn are rabble-rousing renegades unfit for public office. To inept to debate, they sling insults instead.

BOTH SHOULD BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY FROM THEIR POSITIONS - WE NEED ADULTS IN THE POLITICAL WORLD.
