Tensions between MAGA Congresswomen Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Lauren Boebert (Colo.) have reached a fever pitch.
Greene called Boebert a “little bitch” amid GOP frustration at the Colorado Republican’s move to try and force a vote on impeaching President Biden.
On Wednesday, Boebert approached Greene over statements she made earlier in the day for critiquing her move to force an impeachment vote. Greene then accused Boebert of copying her own articles of impeachment against President Biden, which Greene had previously asked her to co-sponsor.

At one point, Greene called Boebert a “little bitch” according to reports from left-leaning publication The Daily Beast.
Greene confirmed the exchange, later telling reporters that the Daily Beast’s story — including the name-calling — was “surprisingly accurate.”
Greene expanded on her frustration with Boebert while speaking to reporters at the Capitol.
“I have defended her when she’s been attacked. She and I have virtually the same voting record. We’re both members of the House Freedom Caucus. We should be natural allies,” Greene said. “But for some reason, she has a great skill and talent for making most people here not like her. And so, it’s her issue.”
Greene said she supported Boebert’s impeachment articles because she also wants to impeach Biden, but she critiqued her approach. Boebert’s move to force a vote caught many of her colleagues by surprise.
“She didn’t talk to anyone about it. She didn’t come to the conference [meeting]. She didn’t address it with anybody. She copied my articles of impeachment, refused to cosponsor mine,” Greene said.
