"The first book she's written (or read)" joked Kimmel
On November 22, a day after the official release of her book 'MTG', Georgia's most-outspoken and controversial Republican - Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene - spent a great deal of time on Twitter thanking those who had given positive feedback, and attacking those who'd mocked it.
Chief amongst those who MTG took issue with, was TV host Jimmy Kimmel, who had devoted a significant part of his opening monologue to mocking the Georgia Republican and her new project. As Kimmel put it in a portion of his opening piece that MTG herself shared on Twitter:
"Marjorie Taylor-Greene released a book today... It's the first book she's written (or read). It's called MTG, it's got a little bit of everything, it's got some revisionist history, conspiracy theories, Jewish space lasers... and of course, Marge's famous recipe for gazpacho police in a peach tree dish."
His jokes appear to combine a number of the more-outrageous and confused rants, mis-statements and theories that the Georgia Republican is famous for having made (and in many cases, stuck-by) over the years. MTG has been accused by Republican colleagues in the past, of needing to be educated so that she doesn't embarrass herself and the party by falling for theories and propagating misinformation.
On this occasion though, rather than correct Kimmel, MTG did what she does and accused him of lying about her. As she put it:
"...since most of your show content is your nonstop lies about me, why don’t you have me on your show? I’ll bring you a copy of my book and we can chat about what needs to happen to SAVE AMERICA!"
MTG's book gets mixed reviews
Since the Georgia' Republican's book became available to purchase on November 21, it's fair to say that it's had mixed reviews. Many who have commented on so far, sharing their views on Twitter appear to either be supporters of the Georgia Republican, or her more outspoken foes which seems to determine the nature of their comment.
At least her current boyfriend - TV host Brian Glenn - was positive about the book as he tweeted his review.
Prior to the publication of the book, one of MTG's most outspoken critics - Florida's Laura Loomer - took to Twitter to let her followers know what she thinks of the book. Unsurprising given her long-running feud with MTG, her comments were far from positive.
As Loomer put it, "her book is trash... they both belong in a dumpster".
Kyle Rittenhouse inspired to publish his story
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, it would seem that the acquitted shooter - Kyle Rittenhouse - gave Georgia's Taylor-Greene a big compliment, after announcing that he too would be publishing his story in a new book (not yet released).
Rittenhouse and MTG go way back, and it would seem that he thinks that more people need to hear the story of his life, just as MTG believes that her story is worth a book too.
Time will tell whether either book features on bestseller lists.
Do you think that Georgia's Marjorie Taylor-Greene should be focusing more on serving the people who voted for her rather than pursuing her own projects? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
