“Our neighbor, @RepMTG, tried to block the Equality Act because she believes prohibiting discrimination against trans Americans is ‘disgusting, immoral, and evil.’ Thought we’d put up our Transgender flag so she can look at it every time she opens her door,” Newman tweeted, with a video of her putting on the flag.
This came in response to Greene, the controversial, right wing, QAnon-supporting lawmaker, calling the LGBTQ rights bill, “an attack on God’s creation.” The Equality Act, currently being debated in the house, is a bill designed to ban discrimination in the US based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

People called the clip “awesome” and “hilarious”. Actress Piper Perabo said it “made her day”.
“It’s the way she smiles and dusts her hands off at the end for me,” another person joked.
Her colleague, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, accused Greene of "trying to get out of work early" after she made a motion to adjourn a vote on the anti-discrimination bill. AOC added, “you should probably stop using those hashtags because women’s rights include trans women.”
