Marjorie Taylor Greene suggests Pete and Chasten Buttigieg want to use girls’ bathrooms

Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has suggested Pete and Chasten Buttigieg want to use girls’ bathrooms in a truly bizarre rant at a Donald Trump rally.

On Saturday, March 26, Trump, who has been touring the country, held his latest “Save America” rally in Commerce, Georgia.

Greene joined a horrifying line-up of warm-up acts, kicked off by Todd Starnes, a “gun-totin’, Bible-clingin’ son of a Baptist” and radio host, so offensive he was even fired by Fox News.

She began her speech declaring that “the real insurrection” was Democrats’ treatment of Trump while he was in office, and that COVID-19 is a “man-made virus”.

But things soon took an even weirder turn.

She continued: “Republicans are taking back the House in 2022, and we are not going to be the same Republican Party that you’ve witnessed for the past decades. That’s right. That’s right.

“You’re gonna see a new Republican Party, a Republican Party that defends our nation’s borders. A Republican Party that finishes the wall. A Republican Party that saves our economy and stops this inflation, ridiculous high gas prices.

“We’re gonna drill oil right here in the USA. And you know what? Pete Buttigieg can take his electric vehicles and his bicycles, and he and his husband can stay out of our girls’ bathrooms. Yeah! And old Lia Thomas… he needs to go back to men’s swimming.”

The response to Greene’s unintelligible rant ranged from disgust to derision.

One Twitter user wrote: “I’m a woman, and honestly, I’d rather Pete Buttigieg in the bathroom with me than Marjorie Taylor Greene.”

“Marjorie Taylor Greene is right,” said another.

“Pete Buttigieg and his husband should not be allowed to bring their electric bicycles into girls bathrooms! There’s just not enough room in there for bikes.”

She even received a response from Kathy Griffin, who tweeted: “You guys, I cannot get secretary Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten out of my bathroom!

“To be fair I do have a fabulous master bath and we were having brunch in there.”

Asked for comment by PinkNews, Greene did not seem to understand the confusion.

A spokesperson said: “It’s pretty simple. Congresswoman Greene wants biological men to stay out of women’s bathrooms.”

Greene, who has touted QAnon conspiracy theories, spewed COVID misinformation, taken aim at trans youth and compared the mask mandate on the House floor to the Holocaust, was this month dubbed an “insurrectionist” by a lawsuit seeking to stop her running for reelection.

On Thursday (24 March), bipartisan Texas-based group Free Speech for People filed a complaint on behalf of Georgian voters arguing that Greene is constitutionally “ineligible” to serve in the House of Representatives, under the “Insurrectionist Disqualification Clause“.
