Marjorie Taylor Greene Is the ‘Tinfoil-Hat Brigade,’ Kevin McCarthy a ‘F—ing Weasel B—-,’ Former DC Cop Michael Fanone Says

Former DC Metro cop Michael Fanone has no shortage of words when it comes to some Republicans in Congress who are passing off the violent January 6 riot as a normal day of tourist fun in the Capitol. Calling Marjorie Taylor Greene the "Tun Hat Brigade" and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy a "f—ing weasel b—-" is just the beginning.
Fanone, who was hit in the skull with whistles and a Blue Lives Matter flag on January 6, had a heart attack and is now suffering from traumatic brain injury, sat down with the Rolling Stone for a rather feisty, uninhibited Interview together about life after testifying before the Congressional Committee on January 6th and his opinions on some of the currently incumbents.
It's safe to say that Fanone is furious at the 21 House Republicans who voted against awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to officers who defended the Capitol. When he got wind of it, he and his colleague Harry Dunn, who was also testifying before Congress, paid a visit to each of the Republicans in the House of Representatives.

"I thought, 'I don't have anything better to do today. I'm going to piss some people off on Capitol Hill,'" he told Rolling Stone. And the flood gates of wrath poured out.

Marjorie Taylor Greene: "Put them in the Tinfoil Brigade," Fanone said. Georgia Representative Andrew Clyde, "when confronted in person, he folded like a damn deck," commented Fanone. Florida Representative Matt Gaetz: Fanone said, "I mean, dude, there's a constituency out there somewhere in America that voted for Matt Gaetz and decided that this guy kind of embodies what it means to be a real American. A damn pedo. I do not get it."
Fanone didn't stop there. Of Josh Hawley, the Missouri Senator who showed a sign of solidarity with the insurgents, Fanone said: "I would have had more respect for him if he had said 'charge' and attacked the first damn group of cops who he could possibly find. But he did not do it. He ran like a B—as fast as he could to the nearest safe room in the damn Capitol.”

And of course he couldn't leave out McCarthy, on whom Fanone goes all-in in the first chapter of his memoir, Hold the Line, out October 11.
"I think at night when the lights are off, Abe Lincoln and Ronald Reagan have some nice words to say about having to hang on Kevin McCarthy's wall," Fanone said. "You've done some damn above average things. And they've got to decorate the wall of that damn weasel named Kevin McCarthy, with his damn spray-on tan, whose damn claim to fame, at least in my mind, is the fact that he put together a collection of Donald Trump's favorite flavor Starburst, them into one Mason jar and presented it to Donald Trump. What the hell dude?”

Fanone thought the bodycam footage that captured his experience of brutality that day would convince people of "the disease that's gripped this country and that we're Americans and Kumbaya and all of that," he said he. But he came to realize that was not the case.
He told Rolling Stone that he was "sick of liberals who only support blue on January 6 and conservatives who only support blue when it comes to policing people of color" and "tired of To get 47 seconds of airtime to explain how to reform an entire police system.” The conservative media has been, shall we say, unfriendly. Newsmax' Greg Kelly called him "that drama queen of a cop," and Fox News' Laura Ingraham gave him a trophy for "Best Performance in an Action Role."
And after he testified on July 27, 2021, others in law enforcement turned against him. "As I testified before Congress, criticism within the [police] department went from whispers to shouts and shouts," Fanone said. He was put in an empty office doing nothing until he had had enough. One day last year he wrote the words "Go away" on a napkin and handed it in as a resignation. December 31, 2021 was his last day as a police officer.
