Novice lipreaders claim Lauren Boebert told Marjorie Taylor Greene, ‘Get the f**k out of my face’

During last week’s heated negotiations over who would be House speaker, Rep. Lauren Boebert at one point allegedly told Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to “get the f-k out of my face.”

Video footage recorded late and early Saturday morning shows Greene, who was a staunch supporter of since-confirmed Speaker Kevin McCarthy, approaching Boebert as she’s seated next to Rep. Matt Gaetz on the House floor.

Greene then tries to speak with Boebert, who was a staunch opponent of McCarthy, but the Colorado lawmaker turns to her and seemingly says (you can’t actually hear her), “Get the f–k out of my face.”

Watch (*Language warning):

Is that what Boebert actually said? It’s not entirely clear. It does certainly look like it, though. And frankly, it wouldn’t really come as a surprise given her past rhetoric.

Indeed, during an appearance last month at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest conference, Boebert was asked about Greene’s support for McCarthy.

In response, she talked some trash.

“I’ve been aligned with Marjorie and accused of believing a lot of the things that she believes in. I don’t believe in this, just like I don’t believe in Jewish space lasers,” she said, according to Vice magazine.

Ouch.

“Boebert was referring to just one of the many conspiracy theories Greene has pushed over the past few years—that the 2018 Camp Fire in California was the result of a beam from ‘solar space generators’ that was somehow tied to the Rothschild banking family, which is frequently used as an antisemitic trope,” Vice notes.

Greene didn’t care for the trash-talking:

The two also reportedly beefed at the start of the year after Greene attended a conference hosted by an alleged white nationalist, Nicholas J. Fuentes.

“Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert look from the outside like MAGA twins, both loathed by Democrats for their incendiary right-wing rhetoric. But inside the House GOP, they’re not quite buddy-buddy,” Politico reported at the time.

“Privately, Republicans say Boebert (R-Colo.) — who’s seen as more of a party team player than Greene — detests being tied to her Georgia colleague. And when the House Freedom Caucus board of directors gathered last month at its usual spot a few blocks from the Capitol, the two tangled over Greene’s appearance at a February event organized by a known white nationalist.”

The confrontation reportedly grew so heated that onlookers were genuinely worried a real fist fight might erupt.

Dovetailing back to the present, Boebert was a lead member of the contingent of Republicans who’d sought to prevent McCarthy from becoming speaker. However, she eventually bent the knee early Saturday morning after a deal was reached, paving the way for a speaker to finally be appointed.

The last-minute capitulation came after a week of intense negotiations and in-fighting among Republicans.

In-fighting, to be more specific, that almost led to a real fist fight erupting on the floor of the House. That same evening, in fact.

As previously reported, after McCarthy failed to secure enough votes for his speakership during the 14th round of voting late Friday and early Saturday, he approached Gaetz to speak with him.

What ensued was a tense discussion that nearly devolved into a fight when Rep. Mike Rogers angrily decided to pull up and confront Gaetz himself.

In the process of confronting Gaetz, Rogers had to be physically restrained and held back by his colleagues.

“Mike D. Rogers of Alabama, who expects to become chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, on which Gaetz serves, stormed toward the huddle [Gaetz and McCarthy], enraged. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), a member of the leadership, walked with Rogers, aware of how angry he was,” The Washington Post reported.

Watch:

Greene later reportedly condemned Rogers.

“There will be consequences’ for Rogers’ actions. Mike Rogers lost his temper and was basically going to, you know, put his hands on Matt. And it was actually Richard Hudson who grabbed Mike Rogers from behind and pulled him away. So yeah, that was completely out of line. And then I’m sure it’ll be dealt with,” she told reporters.
