House Minority Leader McCarthy finds Taylor Greene's comments 'disturbing' and 'plans to have a conversation' with her

Scriber follows on to yesterday’s post about Marjorie Taylor Greene. CNN reports: Parkland shooting survivor calls for House GOP leader to denounce Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. (With thanks to roving Editor-at-Large Sherry.)

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg called on Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Thursday to denounce Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has faced intense criticism this week over incendiary remarks she made in recent years as well as a viral video in which she harasses Hogg.

“My message to Kevin McCarthy is, take all of her committee assignments away … also, don’t support her when she runs for re-election again and try to get her primaried. If you say this is not your party, actually call it out and hold her accountable,” Hogg told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.”

He continued, “Republicans always act as if they’re the party of decency and respect. But would the party of decency and respect question whether or not school shootings happened? Would they harass the survivors of these shootings for having different opinions than them? I don’t think so. And if Kevin McCarthy doesn’t think so either, he needs to actually stand up and do something about this congresswoman.”

Republicans have remained mostly silent about Greene in the wake of this week’s controversies.

Mark Bednar, a spokesman for McCarthy, told CNN in a statement Wednesday that her comments are “deeply disturbing” and that the California Republican “plans to have a conversation with the Congresswoman about them.”

What a wimpy Ch!ckensh!t response.
