Democratic MP Ruben Gallego and MP Marjorie Taylor Greene got into a heated Twitter exchange on Tuesday, revealing the deep anger that has raged among the ranks of Congress since the January 6 uprising at the Capitol.
Gallego said the newly minted Republican from Georgia, who advocated a range of far-right conspiracy theories, was reconciled with Capitol rioters after tweeted her Democratic counterparts as an "enemy within."
"I was trying to figure out what kind of pen to stab your friends with if they overran us on the floor of the House of Representatives while they were trying to make a democratic transfer of power," Gallego said. "So please shut your inflammatory, Qanon-loving mouth when it comes to who loves America."
Gallego, an Arizona Navy combat veteran, was helping his colleagues with their gas masks when pro-Trump loyalists stormed the Capitol in January. He also sheltered several journalists in his office after they were refused entry to a secure room.
In response, Greene accused Gallego of seeking attention, calling him a "coward" and questioning his manhood.
"While you were hiding with your little pen, brave Republican MEN helped the police hold the door so we could all get out safely. Coward," she wrote.
Gallego then argued that there were "many heroes" in the Capitol on January 6, but accused Greene of being one of the "many insurgents trying to destroy democracy".
The Democrat ended the exchange by saying he didn't have time for a Twitter feud because he was too busy with legislative work. He added that Greene was unaware of this because her committees were revoked only a month after her appointment and sworn in to the office.
"I would tweet back and forth with you, but I have two committee duties and one bill of mine is being flagged," he tweeted. "That means we're going out of the committee. (But you wouldn't know.)
