On Thursday (June 22), the spat between Republican politicians Lauren Boebert (Colo.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA.) persisted. This was after Greene allegedly insulted Boebert by calling her “a little b****” on the House floor the day before.

Verbal confrontations intensified between the Colorado and Georgia representatives, both avid supporters of former President Donald Trump.

Both representatives were elected in November 2020, with tensions between the two first rising during the voting process for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in January.

These events occurred after the Republican party narrowly regained the majority in the 2022 midterm elections.

Boebert was part of a group of Republicans who wanted McCarthy to agree to concessions and repeatedly suggested other conservative members take the position instead of McCarthy.

However, McCarthy ultimately won the Speakership after 15 rounds of voting.

Most recently, the pair have feuded as Greene alleged that Boebert copied her articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and is taking credit for the resolution.

Greene made her feelings clear when she spoke to reporters about the impeachment.

The Georgia Republican claimed Boebert had essentially “copied” her articles of impeachment and introduced them as a “privileged resolution.”

Greene emphasized she supports Boebert’s resolution “because they’re identical to mine,” adding, “They’re basically a copycat.”

When CNN’s Manu Raju asked Boebert about Greene’s comments, the Colorado Republican claimed, “I’m not in middle school.”

When Raju asked Boebert to confirm whether Greene had cursed at her on the House floor while Republicans censured California Democratic Representative, she had the response.
