rollingstone.com – By Peter Wade – The congresswoman also claimed during a speech on Saturday that “teachers can pass around dildos, butt plugs and lube” in the classroom – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) reportedly believes that if she and Steve Bannon had organized the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, they would have executed a successful coup. And they would have “been armed.”
“I want to tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, we would’ve been armed,” Greene said of the events on Jan. 6, according to The New York Post‘s Zach Williams.
Greene issued a statement Monday after the White House condemned her remarks. She stated that her Jan. 6 comment was “sarcasm.”
“The White House needs to learn how sarcasm works. My comments were making fun of Joe Biden and the Democrats, who have continuously made me a political target since January 6th… I will never back down from my support of the Second Amendment. And I will never allow the White House, Democrats, or the media to continue to accuse me of something I had nothing to do with,” Greene said.
The Republican congresswoman made the claim at an annual New York Young Republican Club dinner Saturday night where Donald Trump Jr. and far-right figure Jack Posobiec were also featured as speakers. While Williams captured video of some of Greene’s speech that night, he did not share footage of her talking about Jan. 6.
