Gabby Giffords slams Marjorie Taylor Greene over viral video of her harassing Parkland survivor David Hogg

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords, whose congressional career effectively ended when a madman tried to assassinate her by putting a bullet in her brain, on Wednesday slammed Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after a video of the QAnon congresswoman from Georgia went viral.

The video, originally posted to Greene's own YouTube page one year ago, shows her trailing Parkland massacre survivor David Hogg, berating and harassing him for working to pass gun control legislation. "I carry a gun for protection," Greene can be heard in the video shouting. At the time the video was recorded Hogg was 18 or 19 years old.

Newly elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is at the center of controversy yet again over an disturbing video that has resurfaced of her harassing one of the survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla.

On Wednesday, Jan. 27, Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter was one of the victims in the 2018 attack, took to Twitter with footage of the embattled Congresswoman heckling former Parkland student David Hogg. The video was reportedly filmed just weeks after the shooting when Hogg traveled to Washington, D.C., to meet with lawmakers and discuss proposals for stricter gun laws.

Former White House chief of staff waves off Capitol riot with ridiculous argument

The former White House Chief of Staff for the Trump administration is now speaking out to dismiss the severity of the U.S. Capitol riots.

On Wednesday, Jan. 27, Mark Meadows made an appearance on "Fox & Friends" where he offered a partisan perspective on the Biden administration's first full week in the White House, scrutinizing President Joe Biden's executive orders that canceled out many of former President Donald Trump's most controversial actions.

Dem caller scolds C-SPAN for 'blowing smoke in people's eyes' with hourlong show on 'cancel culture'

A C-SPAN caller on Wednesday criticized the network for spending an hour on the subject of "cancel culture," a right-wing notion which asserts that some people are being "cancelled" when they face consequences for their actions.

Washington Journal host Greta Brawner explained "cancel culture" by reading a Wikipedia definition that described the practice as a "modern form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles."

‘Truly horrid’ video emerges of ‘seditionist’ Marjorie Taylor Greene harassing Parkland teen

Controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was called out on social media on Tuesday morning after video was shared showing her harassing a survivor of the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

The shooting, which left 17 people dead and injured 17 more, shocked the country and led to calls for more restrictions on high-powered weapons, but that apparently incensed the now Republican lawmaker who stalked survivor David Hogg and then posted a video of her peppering him with questions as he walked on the streets of Washington, D.C.

Greene posted the video to YouTube (which can be seen below) with the caption, "Marjorie Greene went to Washington DC to fight against dangerous 'Red Flag' Gun Confiscation. She confronted David Hogg for his push to lobby lawmakers to trample on our Second Amendment Rights."

Reaction to the video, including from Hogg, was quick and furious as stunned viewers went after the GOP lawmaker who has a history of posting and "liking" violent threats against Democratic lawmakers.

Former Bush AG: I 'worry' people like me would be unelectable in the modern GOP

On CNN Wednesday, former George W. Bush Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said that he "worries" about the future of the GOP — and even whether someone like himself would be capable of winning an election in it.

"I do want to ask you one final thing," said anchor John Berman. "The Oregon Republican Party passed a resolution calling the invasion of the U.S. capitol a false flag, saying it was fake somehow to make Donald Trump look bad. And that's a state party passing that resolution. I've heard you talk about this before. You were elected, finally, for a second, just before you ended up joining the Bush administration, statewide in Texas. Do you think that you could be elected right now as a Republican or win a Republican primary right now in the state of Texas?"

John Roberts refused to preside over Trump's second impeachment trial: Schumer

When it became clear that the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump would take place after he was out of office, it raised a curious constitutional question that few had ever previously considered: Should Chief Justice John Roberts preside over the trial, as he did during the previous impeachment?

We recently got the answer: No. President pro tempore of the Senate Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, will preside instead.

Rachel Maddow: The GOP is a complete dumpster fire and Democrats are just trying to govern

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow opened her Tuesday show talking about the disasters facing the Republican Party as they fall out of power.

She noted that as the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump begins, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is already dealing with his own hypocrisy. Once the House impeached Trump, McConnell told Schumer that he wouldn't bring the Senate back to vote on conviction until after Trump was out of office. Now that Trump is out of office, McConnell voted Tuesday to dismiss the charges because Trump was no longer in office.

MyPillow CEO: Dominion Voting Systems 'hired hit groups' to 'cancel me out'

In an interview on Tucker Carlson's Fox News program, pro-Trump MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell baselessly claimed that his business is being ruined by a coordinated attack of "hit groups" hired by election vendor Dominion Voting Systems.

"Dominion went on live TV and said they were going to go after Mike Lindell," said Lindell. "Well, they did. They hired hit groups and bots and trolls, went after all my vendors, all these box stores to cancel me out ... it's just a shame. If they can do it to me, Tucker, they can do it to anyone out there."
