Peter Wehner, a former senior aide to President George W. Bush, warned in a brand new essay why he believes it’s “unwise” to put in writing off far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) as “an outcast, a fringe determine, deranged however remoted.”
Greene is now “a confidante” of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Wehner famous in a column for The Atlantic.
And the extremist Republican’s name this week for a “nationwide divorce” is “giving voice to a widespread and rising sentiment” within the GOP, he added.
“MAGA Republicans like Marjorie Taylor Greene have added requires secession to their corrosive lies in regards to the 2020 presidential election,” he wrote. “Extra incendiary and treacherous claims will comply with.”
“Greene and McCarthy—one crazed, the opposite cowardly—embody a big swath of the modern-day GOP,” Wehner concluded. “Any occasion that makes room for seditionists and secessionists is sick and harmful.”
