They say 13 is unlucky for some, and controversial Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene certainly made the “wrong call” when she posted the phone numbers of House representatives who supported President Joe Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure bill.
Pun most definitely intended.
The Georgia congresswoman shared the numbers – which are publicly available – on Twitter on Saturday, a day after the House of Representatives approved Biden’s $1.2 trillion plan for improvements to roads, bridges and other “hard infrastructure”.
Tweeting the details, Greene wrote: “These are the 13 ‘Republicans’ who handed over their voting cards to Nancy Pelosi to pass Joe Biden’s Communist takeover of America via so-called infrastructure”.
In a statement published by The Washington Post on Tuesday, Greene defended her tweet and said: “As a member of Congress who receives constant death threats and death wishes from the radical left, I certainly know what it feels like and I don’t condone it.”
She went on to add that American citizens should continue to call “the unlucky 13” and “politely say how they feel about these traitor Republicans voting to pass Joe Biden’s Communist agenda.”
Ah yes, because the word “traitor” sure sounds like a polite way to speak to someone – not.
