Marjorie Taylor Greene speaks out as Crockett files trademark for 'bleach blonde bad-built butch body' [View all]

Source: UK Independent

6 hours ago

Marjorie Taylor Greene has spoken out after Jasmine Crockett is said to have filed a trademark application for the phrase “bleach blonde bad-built butch body”.

Half an hour into House Oversight Committee proceedings last Thursday, the Republican lawmaker lined up the Democrat in her crosshairs insulting her “fake eyelashes”. While the House devolved into chaos with Ms Green also taking aim at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s intelligence, the congresswoman’s insults were ruled not to have flouted rules.

Scratching her head at the decision, Ms Crockett asked whether making remarks about somebody’s “bleach blond, bad-built butch body” was also allowed – a clear jibe at Ms Greene.

Ms Crockett is now looking to capitalise from the feud, with her campaign purportedly filing a trademark for the scathing alliterative remark, according to documents viewed by Fox News. The Texas representative plans to create a suite of hats, hoodies, socks, and t-shirts branded with the phrase, as per the documents.

This is the type of epic trolling that Fetterman had actually done to Dr. Oz during his Senate campaign (regardless of what Fetterman thought of the goings-on between Crockett, AOC, and MTG nowadays). She has effectively shut the howler monkey down leaving her speechless and responding defensively for the first time.
