Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) on Saturday became the latest lawmaker to condemn Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for comparing Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) mask policy on the House floor to the Holocaust.
“This is evil lunacy,” Cheney tweeted Saturday morning, along with a clip of Greene’s Friday interview on Real America’s Voice. During the segment, Greene also argued that Pelosi was “mentally ill.”
“You know, we can look back at a time in history when people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany,” Greene added in the interview. “And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about.”
Cheney’s response comes after Greene, along with other GOP lawmakers, pushed for the Wyoming congresswoman to be removed from her position as House Republican conference chair.
House Republicans eventually voted to boot Cheney from her leadership post earlier this month after she repeatedly criticized former President Trump over his unsupported claims of voter fraud.
