Congress Erupts into Chaos Like a Jerry Springer Episode


During a House Oversight Committee hearing on May 17, 2024, tensions escalated when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) made a personal comment about Rep. Jasmine Crockett's (D-Texas) appearance, specifically mocking her eyelashes.


This led to a heated exchange involving Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) stepping in to defend Crockett. The incident disrupted the proceedings, with Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) struggling to maintain order. The event has sparked widespread discussion and criticism on social media, highlighting ongoing tensions and personal attacks within political discourse.


The comment sparked nearly an hour of chaos in the committee, with lawmakers shouting over each other, exchanging insults and personal attacks, while Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., struggled to regain control.



Marjorie Taylor Green responded on X with, "I’m not going to keep you all addicted to outrage and hopium that never solves a problem or stops the inevitable implosion of the United States of America.
