Marjorie Taylor Greene 'Attacked' by Woman While at Restaurant

Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has said she was attacked while sitting at a table in a restaurant.

Greene said a woman and her son began shouting at her like "demons" while she was working with her staff on Monday evening (February 27), saying that the two of them were "completely out of control."

In a tweet, Greene said: "I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son. They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views.

"They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control. I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons.

"People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone."

Greene did not detail at what restaurant or where the altercation occurred. She also did not explain what her alleged attackers were shouting at her about. Newsweek has contacted her for comment.

Greene hit the headlines earlier this month after heckling and shouting at President Joe Biden during his State of the Union address, beginning her jeering before Biden had even started speaking.

When Biden accused "some Republicans" of wanting to cut social security and Medicare during his speech, Greene booed loudly at the president.

"Instead of making the wealthy pay their fair share, some Republicans want Medicare and social security to sunset. I'm not saying it's the majority," Biden said.

"You lie! You lie! Liar," Greene shouted.

Most recently, Greene has proven divisive for her American "national divorce" proposal.

Greene has said she supports the idea of splitting America to "separate our ideological and political disagreements by states." She claims that despite any such separation into red and blue states the U.S. would still maintain its legal union.

As well as a political split, Greene called for a reduction in the power and role of the federal government.

She insisted it should be focused on core attributes such as "the United States border and our national security."

Greene, who explained her ideas in a 13-tweet thread last week, has faced both condemnation and praise for her proposals.

Fox News' Laura Ingraham was particularly critical of Greene's ideas, however, and suggested their implementation would be "giving up" on America.

During her show on February 21 she said: "Just because it often seems like Democrats have given up on America themselves, doesn't mean ever that Republicans or conservatives should. They should not.

"I'm certainly not willing to give up on the states that gave us Sinatra, John Wayne, or that welcomed my grandparents from Poland.

"There are good hardworking people in Illinois, in New York, in California, and Washington State, who don't want to move and who are looking for new leadership. So let's give it to them."

Despite the controversy, on Friday Greene insisted she was happy people were speaking about her idea.

In a tweet she wrote: "I'm glad to see all the debate about national divorce. I think reducing the size and power of the federal government and giving more power to the states is good for all of us.

"Federalism is a good thing. The federal government has turned into a giant out of control monster that takes a different direction with each swing of the political pendulum. People are sick it."
