(UnitedVoice.com) – A feud has broken out in Congress between two conservative legislators. Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO) clashed during the proposed censure of Adam Schiff (D-CA). Now, Greene has gone public to give her side of the story.
BREAKING: The messy feud between two of MAGA world’s biggest stars burst into public view, when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called Rep. Lauren Boebert a “little b*tch” to her face on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.https://t.co/yERXzyK0RT

On June 21, the House debated a motion calling for the censure of Schiff for his role in Congress’s investigations of former president Donald Trump. The motion passed 213-209, with all but six GOP representatives supporting it. However, the vote was overshadowed by a fight between Greene and Boebert.
The dispute on the House floor apparently started when Boebert approached Greene to discuss statements Greene had allegedly made about her. Both women have attempted to impeach President Biden; Greene made the first attempt, and seems to resent the fact Boebert followed her example. She told the Colorado lawmaker that despite her support, “you’ve been nothing but a little b–ch to me” and then accused Boebert of copying her articles of impeachment.
The next day, Greene spoke to journalists to explain the conflict. She expanded on her earlier comments, saying, “She has genuinely been a nasty little b–ch to me,” and revealing Boebert had accused her of spitting on her lip.
Greene’s annoyance flared after Boebert used House procedures to force an early vote on her impeachment motion, which should now happen within days. Greene was the first to move against Biden, but her own motion can’t benefit from the procedural tool Boebert used.
The dispute is bad news for conservative Republicans. Both Greene and Boebert have a strong following on the GOP’s MAGA wing, and it’s better for the party if they’re both pulling in the same direction. The chances of that happening anytime soon seem remote, though, after Greene told journalists there’s “absolutely no chance” of a reconciliation.
