Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene went on a Twitter rant criticizing former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s recent Fox News interview with Congressman-elect George Santos, asserting that Gabbard and her former colleagues are giving Santos “zero grace” for fabricating his resume.

The Georgia representative tweeted a clip of the full interview, along with a thread in which she attacked Gabbard’s legislative history and asserted that Republicans should give Santos a chance.

Greene posted, “I too believe actions and words are extremely important, but I don’t think a former Democrat who’s actions on the House floor as recent as 2020 that gave her an A from Planned Parenthood, an F from the NRA, and introduced a climate agenda signature piece of legislation called the OFF Act - designed to end all fossil fuels (the same as AOC’s Green New Deal) should lecture a newly elected Republican member of congress on how he should vote to represent his Republican district.”

During the interview, Gabbard asked Santos, “What does the word integrity mean to you?” To which he eventually replied, “it means to carry yourself in an honorable way,” and assured viewers that he is not a “fraud or fake.”

“The thing is, Congressman-Elect, integrity means yes, carrying yourself with honor. But it means telling the truth – being a person of integrity,” Gabbard responded. “And if I were one of those in New York’s third district right now, now that the election is over and finding out all of these lies that you’ve told, not just one little lie or one little embellishment, these are blatant lies. Do you have no shame?”

“Tulsi, I can say the same thing about the Democrats and the party,” Santos responded. “Joe Biden’s been lying to the American people for 40 years. He’s the president of the United States. Democrats resoundingly support him. Do they have no shame?”

Gabbard reminded him that the interview was not about Democrats and responded, “This is not about the Democratic Party, though,” she said. “This is about your relationship, frankly with the people who entrusted you to go and fight for them.”

Greene continued, “I do appreciate that Tulsi says words that sound conservative now even though she can’t take action to back them up. I am glad she, like George, realized she made mistakes and was wrong every time she voted to support killing the unborn, taking away our gun rights, and legislated to kill America’s energy independence and the fossil fuel industry.”

In her final tweet she declared her belief that Republicans should continue to support Santos.

She said, “I hope Tulsi is sincere, just like I hope George is sincere. I think we Republicans should give George Santos a chance and see how he legislates and votes, not treat him the same as the left is.”
