On Monday (April 3), Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA.) hit back at New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D), who warned her to be on her “best behavior” when protesting against former President Donald Trump’s arraignment in the city on Tuesday.
Taking to Twitter, Green accused Adams of being “delusional,” claiming he was “trying to intimidate, threaten, and stop me from using my 1st amendment rights” in a peaceful protest against the Democrats’ attempts to weaponize the U.S. Justice system against Trump unconstitutionally.
Greene, a staunch Trump ally, has been among many Republicans who’ve rallied behind Trump and railed against Trump’s indictment for his involvement in $130,000 paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
Trump and his allies, including Greene, have decried Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s investigation into the former President’s involvement in the six-figure hush money payment as politically motivated.
Greene continued her criticism of the New York City major, writing he should focus his concern on NYC citizens “and taxpayers” being robbed, murdered, carjacked, and raped in the city rather than pay attention to “an elected Member of Congress coming to town.”
The Georgia Republican then questioned if she “should be the one concerned” that Adams would “weaponize his government or maybe his thugs like DA Alvin Bragg against [her].”
Adams issued a warning to Greene regarding her plans to join a protest in Manhattan by the New York Young Republican Club at a press conference earlier on Monday, saying the Republican Lawmaker “known to spread misinformation and hate speech” should be on her “best behavior” while she’s in town.
