Loomer tears-into MTG as her new book is published
On November 18, ahead of the publication of the new memoir by Georgia's most outspoken and divisive Republican - Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene - various of her critics have weighed-in with their opinions on the book.
One of the most vocal commentators, was Florida journalist Laura Loomer who has fought a long, bitter feud with Georgia's Taylor-Greene. Given this context, it's perhaps unsurprising that her comments on the book were extremely negative.
"Her book is trash... they both belong in a dumpster"
In the same article, Loomer also attacked MTG for her shameless self-promotion and for exploiting others to gain publicity for herself and her book:
"What a shameless grifter. Disgusting to be profiting off the suffering of J6ers."
Georgia's Taylor-Greene and Florida's Loomer have fought a long and bitter battle, in an apparent effort to prove which of them cares most about the one-term former president Donald Trump. It's surprising that even with a shared political ideology, that they can't agree, but in Loomer's case it seems that she's equally harsh towards other Republicans too.
She recently went on an all-out assault towards another presidential hopeful - Chris Christie - after the GOP Freedom Summit in Kissimmee, FL. She has been a regular attacker of Florida Republican Ron DeSantis, and also recently turned on the newly-appointed Republican Speaker of the House - Mike Johnson - describing him as a "RINO conman"
Loomer's feud with MTG continues
While Laura Loomer appears to dislike many within the Republican party, it seems to be Marjorie Taylor-Greene who bears the brunt of many of her more vicious attacks. In October, Loomer took to Twitter to take a swipe at her long-time adversary (and former friend) over her ongoing dreams of being chosen as the running mate for three-time loser Trump.
Loomer's suggested that MTG's aspirations to be Vice President may have taken another hit, namely that South Carolina Republican Nancy Mace had been rumored to be chosen to be Trump's running mate and eventual Vice President.
As unlikely as it might be for Mace (or MTG) to be selected by Trump, it's clear that Loomer was motivated more by the chance to get under Taylor-Greene's skin with her comments. Earlier in October, Loomer had mocked MTG, referring to her as "Empty G" for being full of empty promises (in her opinion).
What went wrong between them?
It's clear that there are no signs of friendship between MTG and Loomer, and yet it's not entirely clear what went wrong between them.
In August of 2020, MTG was one of the more vocal Republicans calling for Loomer to be restored onto Twitter after the platform banned her. It seems likely that Loomer benefitted from the mass-reinstatement of banned accounts (including Taylor-Greene's personal account) when Elon Musk bought the social media platform.
Regardless, there's no clear episode that explains why they are so vicious towards each other, in spite of their mutual admiration for the one-term former president Trump. It remains to be seen whether Marjorie Taylor-Greene's new book is a bestseller or not, in spite of Loomer's comments.
Do you think that Marjorie Taylor-Greene is doing a good job of serving the people of Georgia, or is she more concerned about building her personal profile? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
