- The Washington Post reports tonight that representative Marjorie Taylor Greene confronted her colleague Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the halls of the Capitol earlier this week, and it's not the first time it happened. A video from 2019 surfaced today showing Greene addressing Ocasio-Cortez through her door.

MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, I'm an American citizen. I pay your salary through the taxes that you collect from me through the IRS. I'm a woman. I'm a female business owner. And I'm proud to be an American woman. And I do not support your socialist policies. If you want to be a big girl, you need to get rid of your diaper and come out and be able to talk to the American citizens, instead of us having to use a flap, a little flap.

- Well, when asked about her most recent actions today, Greene said she'd been attacked by Democrats several times, and blame them for being kicked off multiple committees.

MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE: Since I have been a member of Congress I have been kicked off of my committees by the Democrats when there were no ethics violations against me. Not one, I did nothing wrong.

- Well, Greene was kicked off the committees in February after her past controversial comments came to light. In one video she was seen verbally attacking a Parkland school shooting survivor. This morning, Ocasio-Cortez reacted to Green's action saying Greene has been fixated on her for years.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: This is a woman that's deeply unwell and clearly needs some help. The depth of that unwellness has raised concerns for other member as well. And so you know, I think that this is an assessment that needs to be made by the proper professionals.

- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has suggested that the House Ethics Committee should look into Greene for alleged verbal assault on Ocasio-Cortez.
