Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Thursday lashed out at the "courage & intelligence" of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
The remarks came following reports that Ocasio-Cortez was berated by Greene outside the House chamber on Wednesday.
In a statement following the confrontation, a spokesperson for Ocasio-Cortez hoped that the "Sergeant at Arms will take real steps to make Congress a safe, civil place for all Members and staff."
On Thursday, Greene mocked Ocasio-Cortez over the call for workplace safety.
"'Ms. Defund The Police' wants to call the police for security bc she's afraid of debating with me about her socialist GND," Green wrote on Twitter. "AOC is a fraud & a hypocrite."
"That's fine Sandy," the Republican lawmaker added. "Since you lack the courage & intelligence to debate me, I'll debate the person who really wrote it."
Greene then called on Ocasio-Cortez to be "expelled" from Congress.
.@AOC “Ms. Defund The Police" wants to call the police for security bc she's afraid of debating with me about her socialist GND.
AOC is a fraud & a hypocrite.
That's fine Sandy.
Since you lack the courage & intelligence to debate me, I'll debate the person who really wrote it.

Since you are short on understanding little Adam, I asked @AOC to debate me.
In the chamber, to debate her destructive socialist policies.
But Sandy doesn't know how to work with Republicans.
