QAnon Rep Attacks Trans Daughter Of Dem Rep

The Chicago Tribune reports:

Illinois U.S. Rep. Marie Newman’s push to pass a law that would ban discrimination against LGBTQ Americans has put her at the center of a feud with controversial Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, a pro-Trump freshman congresswoman from Georgia who has espoused baseless conspiracy theories.

On Tuesday, Newman took to the House floor urging for the passage of the Equality Act, which would prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation. During an emotional speech, the freshman Democrat from suburban LaGrange choked up as she talked about how the law would offer protections for her transgender daughter.

Taylor Green gave a floor speech in opposition of the bill and then unsuccessfully tried to adjourn the House to block its movement through the chamber. That prompted Newman, whose new office in Washington’s Longworth House Office Building is directly across the hall from Taylor Greene’s, to display a transgender flag in the hallway.

The Washington Post reports:

Greene, who lost her committee memberships by promoting false and extremist claims, quickly responded with her own video mocking Newman’s earlier tweet as she hung up a poster that said, “There are TWO genders: Male & Female. Trust the science.”

“Thought we’d put up ours so [Newman] can look at it every time she opens her door,” Greene said.

The exchange quickly went viral, leading critics to accuse Greene of cruelty directly aimed at Newman’s family — the latest bit of outrage spurred by a House member who has espoused QAnon’s baseless theories and falsely suggested that former president Donald Trump’s supporters were not present at the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
