Jake Tapper Says Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Has 'Issues' After Her Rant On Bannon Vote

CNN's Jake Tapper slammed Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R.Ga.), on Friday. He stated that she has real problems and is not tied to reality.
Greene's Thursday outburst, as Rep. Jamie Raskin (D–Md.) described it, was his remark. She started shouting at Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. .

After Bannon refused to appear before the House select panel investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol, the House voted to support the criminal contempt resolution.

Greene attacked fellow legislators for not penalizing Black Lives Matter protesters, and Cheney called her a joke for pushing the wild claim that Jewishly funded space lasers caused wildfires.

Congresswoman Cheney and Congressman Raskin are speaking on the floor. According to my sources .... Congresswoman Greene approaches them and starts screaming at them. Tapper then said this to his CNN co-hosts.

Tapper stated that while I don't know Tapper and she isn't a licensed psychologist, her behavior indicates someone who has real problems.

He also mentioned Greene's conspiracy theory, which suggested that wealthy Jewish Americans used laser technology to set fires in California to get a financial incentive.

Tapper said that it was a deranged antisemitic conspiracy theory and yet many Republicans are supporting it.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Liz Cheney are the doors to the Republican Party's right now. He asked which one the Republican Party wants to imitate.

Marjorie Taylor Greene began shouting at Liz Cheney and Jamie Raskin. Raskin, via the pool, explains: "I was just speaking to Miss Cheney, and then she started screaming at me, asking us, 'When will you start investigating murders during the summer and BLM?"

Greene is well-known for her outbursts. Greene yelled at a group Democrats last month as they held a press conference in the Capitol about legislation that would guarantee abortion rights. Greene shouted loudly that unborn women have the right to live.
