In a tweet on Monday (February 27) night Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA.) revealed that she had been “attacked” in a restaurant by an “insane” woman and her son, who yelled at her about her political views.

Greene claimed the incident began because of a difference of political opinion that escalated because the mother and son didn’t “respect” opposing views.

The Republican Congresswoman relayed in a tweet that the pair “had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me” with “different political views.”

She described them as “self-righteous, insane, and completely out of control.”

The Congresswoman continued saying she was working at the time, sitting with staff, and didn’t notice the woman and her son until they “turned into demons.”

She added that “respect” for others was used to be expected, even for those that had “different views,” but that wasn’t the case anymore, adding, “Our country is gone.”

A spokesman for Greene, Nick Dyer, explained that the Congresswoman was sitting with staff and was preparing for Tuesday’s Committee hearings when the woman approached them.

Dyer noted that, at first, the woman approached and introduced herself before she began berating Greene.

Dyer added it was at that point the woman’s 20-year-old son began “screaming expletives at the top of his lungs and came closer.”

Dyer explained that he had to get between the son and the table as he didn’t know how the situation would escalate, but that it only resulted in him screaming more as his mother “continued to berate” Greene.

Dyer concluded that the restaurant staff eventually intervened and told the pair to leave the establishment before moving Greene and her team to a more private table, adding that police hadn’t been called to respond.
