Dragphobic Marjorie Taylor Greene Strikes Back After Pics of BF in Drag Drop on Social Media
READ TIME: 2 MIN.
Dragphobic Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene struck back at critics after video surfaced of her current boyfriend in drag. "Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has consistently bashed drag queens, defended her boyfriend, Brian Glenn, after a Twitter account surfaced an old video of him dressed like a woman," reports Business Insider.
"The Twitter account 'Patriot Takes' posted the video on Sunday, which showed Glenn dressed like an old Caucasian woman – complete with a fluffy blonde wig, white gloves, and a pink cardigan." (It was for a feature for a production of "A Tuna Christmas" in which actors play both men and woman.)
"Glenn, a producer at a right-wing broadcasting network, could be heard saying: "I'm kicking the shoes off. I may keep the pantyhose on. It does feel kind of good, actually." It is unclear when the video first aired, but Glenn was an anchor for WFAA TV, an ABC-affiliated media company in Dallas, from 2013 to 2015.
Greene retweeted the video on Sunday, writing: "I'm literally lol'ing. @brianglenntv dressed in drag for morning news in Dallas years ago reporting on an upcoming local theatre production and the morons over at Patriot Takes think this is an attack."
The Georgia Republican added: "Brian loves the throwback and is reposting. The left is so stupid."
Missing is the vitriol Greene is famous for when discussing drag and LGBTQ+ issues. Last year Newsweek reported "Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is lashing out against the "indoctrination" of children attending drag shows, arguing that it 'needs to be illegal.'"
Greene maintained that a legal remedy was required to stop children from "stuffing" money into "a drag queen bra"
In related comments, she predicted straight people will go extinct: "Probably, in about four or five generations, no one will be straight anymore. Everyone will be either gay or trans or non-conforming," she said on her latest broadcast of "MTG:Live," her streaming broadcast that airs on her social media pages.
Greene divorced her husband of 27 years, Perry Greene, in September. Seven months later, she went public about her relationship with Glenn.
