Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) clashed during a House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing on Thursday night.

Ocasio-Cortez falsely accused Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-Texas) of donning “fake eyelashes.” The dispute escalated into anarchy.

Amid nearly an hour of disorder in the committee, lawmakers hurled insults and shouted over one another, leaving Chair James Comer (R-Kentucky) toiling to maintain order.

The remark occurred during a markup to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress.

“I don’t think you know what you’re here for. I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading.” Greene said in response to Rep. Crockett, a Democrat.

“That’s disgusting.” New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez then said in response, who then demanded Greene’s remarked by taken down.

“How dare you attack the physical appearance of another person,”  Cortez continued.

“Are your feelings hurt?” Greene said in response.

“Oh girl, oh baby girl, don’t even play,” Cortez said.

“Oh really, baby girl?” Greene retorted.

“I believe she needs to apologize,” Cortez stated.

“I’m not apologizing,” Greene said in response.

“Well then you’re not striking your words.” Cortez replied.

“Why don’t you debate me?” Greene inquired.

“I think it’s pretty self-evident,” Ocasio-Cortez shot back.

“Yeah, you don’t have enough intelligence,” Greene concluded.

Thursday night’s proceedings reached their logical conclusion with a panel vote of 22-20 on whether or not to permit Greene to continue speaking during the hearing.

The decision was ultimately approved. In contrast to her party colleagues, Representative Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) voted against permitting Representative Greene to proceed during the hearing, despite the fact that the two have previously clashed. Ahead of Greene by two seats at the time of the vote was Boebert.

The attorney general’s denial of the audio recording of President Biden’s interview with special counsel Robert Hur, despite possessing the transcript of the conversation, prompted Republicans to consider holding Garland in contempt. Concerning the audio recordings, Biden asserted executive privilege.

At approximately 11 p.m. EDT on Thursday, the vote was approved by a party-line of 24 to 20, several hours subsequent to the House Judiciary Committee’s identical outcome.

The attorney general will be held in defiance of the House by a vote of the upper chamber.
