The Insider reports:
On Wednesday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia tweeted that she reported comedian Jimmy Kimmel to the Capitol police, appearing to call one of the host’s jokes about her a “threat of violence.”
On Tuesday, Kimmel had cracked the joke while on his show “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. The host mocked Greene for calling three GOP senators — Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Mitt Romney of Utah — “pro-pedophile.”
“Wow, where is Will Smith when you really need him, huh?” Kimmel said, in a likely reference to when the Hollywood star infamously slapped comedian Chris Rock onstage at this year’s Oscars.
The Daily Beast reports:
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) downplayed the violence at the Capitol, voted against awarding congressional medals to Capitol Police officers injured in the insurrection, and ranted that the agency is like the “gazpacho.”
Greene has, among other things, harassed a school shooting survivor, posted a mock-up pic of her holding a machine gun near lawmakers’ heads, and liked a Facebook post about executing Democrats.
Officer? I would like to report a joke. https://t.co/3ournv9RwG

Marjorie Taylor Greene has also removed this Facebook video where she suggests Pelosi can be executed for treason.
“It’s a crime punishable by death is what treason is. Nancy Pelosi is guilty of treason,” she says. pic.twitter.com/cUVT4Bcr06
