Former President Donald Trump praised controversial Georgia lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene during a "Save America!" rally in Cullman.

Trump called Greene one his "favorite persons" during his speech at Saturday's "potential superspreader” event, drawing cheers from his supporters.

Aaron Rupar, Vox reporter, shared a video in which the ex-president describes the so-called QAnon Congresswoman to be "so smart," brilliant, and "incredible".

He said, "She's brilliant woman, she doesn't get credit." "But, we all know that stuff."

Trump also called Greene, a supporter for the former president's efforts in 2020 to reverse his loss to President Joe Biden, a "warrior".

He continued, "Everything that I said about Georgia was true."

Trump claimed victory in Georgia after the 2020 presidential election. This false claim is contrary to President Joe Biden's almost 13,000 vote win there. Insider reported that Trump also attempted to press Georgia officials to reverse the results.

Greene was a loyal ally of the former president and also supported voter fraud in her home country. She called for decertifying the results of the presidential election.

In response to incendiary and violent remarks made about prominent Democrats, the House of Representatives voted in February 2021 to remove Greene's participation in all committee functions.

She has supported many far-right conspiracy theories, controversial viewpoints, such as QAnon, Pizzagate and comparing COVID-19 safety protocols with the persecution of Jews by the Nazis.
