Famous bigots Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert are fighting over ‘space lasers’
Republicans Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene have turned on each other, with the Colorado congresswoman mocking Greene’s conspiracy theories.
During an interview on Monday (19 December), Boebert took a swipe at her former friend when asked if she would support House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s bid to become House speaker in the next Congress, as Greene does.
“You know, I’ve been aligned with Marjorie and accused of believing a lot of the things that she believes in,” Boebert told conservative commentator Charlie Kirk at a Turning Point USA conference.
“I don’t believe in this, just like I don’t believe in Russian space lasers — Jewish space lasers and all of this,” she said.
Boebert’s comment was a reference to Greene’s 2018 suggestion that the California wildfires were started by a space laser beam operated by wealthy Jewish bankers.
In a since-deleted Facebook post Greene said “laser beam or light beam” from “space solar generators” could be blamed for the fires.

The US representative for Georgia took to Twitter to defend herself and made sure to highlight Boebert’s slimmer-than-expected reelection win.
“I’ve supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. President Trump has supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. Kevin McCarthy has supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. She just barely came through by 500 votes,” Greene wrote.
“She gladly takes our $$$ but when she’s been asked: Lauren refuses to endorse President Trump, she refuses to support Kevin McCarthy, and she childishly threw me under the bus for a cheap sound bite.”
In an exclusive with the Daily Caller Boebert responded to Greene’s tweet.
She said: “Let me be very clear, I support President Trump. Period. President Trump is a friend and the leader of the Republican party.”
Greene and Boebert were both elected to the House for the first time in 2020 and won reelection in 2022.
