Sunday’s 60 Minutes interview of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene started with a bang as correspondent Lesley Stahl read aloud things that have been said about the Georgia Republican, including that she’s “unhinged,” a “moron,” and “Trump in high heels.”
Before the interview clip, Stahl gave an introduction of Greene, noting that’s often referred to as MTG and has, unlike most members of the House, become “Well-known nationally.”
“Marjorie Taylor Greene – MTG – is as famous as they get,” said Stahl. She pointed out that the interview was conducted before the news of the indictment of Donald Trump broke.
As the interview clip began, Stahl said to Greene, “We looked up some words that have been said about you.”
“Okay,” said Greene.
“Crazy, Q-clown, Looney Tune, unhinged, moron,” Stahl said reading the insults aloud to Greene. “Pretty ugly stuff.”
Greene responded that it “looks like the average troll in my Twitter feed, so I don’t really care.”
Stahl segued from the explicit insults to ask Greene how much she has “styled” herself after Trump, noting that “People say that you are Trump in high heels.”
Greene said she didn’t “intentionally” emulate Trump but that she understands the comparison.
