Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said that while she and her staff were at a restaurant on Monday night, she was confronted by a woman and yelled at by that woman’s son.
“I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son. They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views,” Greene tweeted. “They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control. I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons. People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone.”
Nick Dyer, who NBC News described as Greene’s deputy chief staff, said that the woman politely introduced herself but then began berating the lawmaker.
“We were working on prep for today’s committee hearings, and after a woman finished dinner, she came over to our table. Introduced herself politely at first and then started berating Marjorie,” Dyer noted, according to the Washington Examiner. “At that point, her 20-year-old son started screaming expletives at the top of his lungs and came closer. I had to get in between him and the table because I had no clue what he’d do. More and more screaming by him while his mother continued to berate Marjorie. Finally, staff came and demanded that they leave. They apologized, moved us to a more private table. Police were not called.”
“This type of thing happens often, but the son was out of control, and the woman wouldn’t leave until staff came. You just never know what could happen,” he said, according to the outlet.
Greene is slated to speak at CPAC this week.
