Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) neglected to directly answer a question asking if President Joe Biden was legitimately elected to the White House while speaking on Howie Kurtz’s Fox News media critique show.
“Do you believe that Joe Biden is a legitimately elected President?” Kurtz asked.
“Of course, Joe Biden’s the president,” Greene responded in what was arguably at least a partial dodge. “That’s always a silly question.”

Some Republican voters have reportedly expressed disappointment with Greene in recent weeks over her refusal to challenge the bid of Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for House speaker.
It was not just voters either. Congressional Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) seemed to express dissatisfaction with Green’s support of McCarthy after she was asked about it during Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest conference in Phoenix last month.
“I’ve been aligned with Marjorie and accused of believing a lot of the things that she believes in. I don’t believe in this, just like I don’t believe in Jewish space lasers,” she reportedly said.
Greene countered Boebert’s remarks in a post she made on Twitter, writing that she “gladly takes our $$$” yet “refuses to endorse President Trump, she refuses to support Kevin McCarthy,” and that “she childishly threw me under the bus for a cheap sound bite.”
Granted, the two apparently have a history of not getting along, as was alleged in an April 2022 piece by Politico.
During the same segment, Kurtz pointed out that neither Greene nor McCarthy voted to certify the results of the 2020 election on January 6, 2021.
“Do you think that’s an important thing for the base even today?” Kurtz asked.
“Oh it’s very important,” answered Greene. “What I was pointing out is the same people that conservatives were holding up in high esteem don’t necessarily have those voting records, while they’re at the same time criticizing Kevin McCarthy, who does,” Greene added in defense of her support of McCarthy. “Kevin McCarthy did object on January 6, and he’s been a top target of the January 6 Committee.”
