Two of the most prominent anti-establishment Republicans were caught on C-SPAN video footage in a tense feud on the House floor, where Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) allegedly called Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) a “little b—h.”
On Wednesday, a clip from C-SPAN went viral on social media. While the camera didn’t manage to catch the audio of the argument, it was clear from their body language that the exchange was heated.

Sources who witnessed the argument confirmed to the far-left Daily Beast that Greene had called Boebert a “little b—h,” noting that the fight was prompted by the Colorado congresswoman’s decision to introduce a resolution to impeach President Joe Biden.
“The angry exchange came as the two lawmakers have been swiping at each other over their competing resolutions to impeach President Joe Biden,” the outlet reported. “But tensions came to a head on Wednesday after Boebert leveraged a procedural tool to force a vote on her own impeachment resolution within days—undercutting Greene, who had offered her own resolution, but not with the procedural advantages of forcing a vote.”
Greene has repeatedly introduced her resolution to impeach Biden since the start of his presidency, but the measure has never gained enough traction. After Boebert introduced a similar resolution with one major difference — it included a procedural measure to force a vote without any planning or coordination — Greene felt like she had been undercut by her fellow Freedom Caucus member.
The feud on the House floor was reportedly started by Boebert, who confronted Greene over “statements you made about me publicly.”
Greene fired back by accusing Boebert of having “copied my articles of impeachment.”
“I’ve donated to you, I’ve defended you. But you’ve been nothing but a little b—h to me. And you copied my articles of impeachment after I asked you to cosponsor them,” Greene told Boebert, according to witnesses.
“OK, Marjorie, we’re through,” Boebert allegedly replied, shrugging her shoulders.
“We were never together,” Greene allegedly fired back while Boebert’s back was turned.
Speaking with Semafor, Greene once again blasted her colleague.
“I was sitting down, and so I stood up and I said, ‘I’m happy to clarify my public statements to your face,’” the Georgia congresswoman told the outlet.
“I told her exactly what I think about her,” Greene added. “It’s purely for fundraising. It’s throwing out red meat so that people will donate to her campaign because she’s coming up on the end of the month, and she’s trying to produce good fundraising numbers.”
“She has genuinely been a nasty little b—h to me,” she claimed.
Boebert also reportedly responded to Greene’s attacks in a comment to CNN, allegedly stating: “Like I said, I’m not in middle school.”

This is not the first fight between the two GOP firebrands, as the two also reportedly argued during the speakership vote in January. While Greene was facing intense backlash from her conservative voter base for supporting pro-establishment Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for House Speaker, she reportedly confronted Boebert in a women’s restroom at the Capitol for refusing to support him.
“You were OK taking millions of dollars from McCarthy but you refuse to vote for him for Speaker, Lauren?” Greene asked Boebert, according to a source familiar with the interaction.
