Marjorie Taylor Greene went to Capitol Hill hoping to make Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib swear in on a Bible.

Via Media Matters:

Republican congressional candidate and right-wing pundit Marjorie Taylor Greene is a bigot both on and offline.

In February 2019, she visited Capitol Hill -- her likely future place of employment -- and filmed herself unsuccessfully trying to interrogate Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). During the video, she falsely claimed that they're illegitimate members of Congress because they took their congressional oaths of office on the Quran and said she wanted to make them retake their oath on the Bible. She also said she wanted to tell them they “really should go back to the Middle East if they support Sharia.” In addition to being bigoted, her remarks are also ignorant as their oaths were legitimate and neither representative is from the Middle East.
