Two Republicans just ignited a fight that could send the GOP into a civil war

Since a disappointing showing the November midterms, Republicans are searching for direction. But now some are turning on their own.

And Two Republicans just ignited a fight that could send the GOP into a civil war.

For months Republicans were assured of a “red wave” that would sweep the nation during the midterm elections.

It was supposed to be the definitive nail-in-the-coffin for the Democrat party and their radical agenda for America.

But instead, Americans largely delivered a mixed bag, and we were all left to pick up the pieces.

Only Florida, led by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, shined bright for the conservative movement election night.

And the lackluster results have heightened calls for Republican leadership to be ousted for their failure to yield results.

But not everyone is happy with the shakeup, and tempers are starting to flare.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) went to battle Monday night after Boebert made a snide remark about Greene during an interview.

When asked if she agreed with Greene’s support for making House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) the next Speaker of the House, Boebert brought up Greene’s past anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

“Well, you know, I’ve been aligned with Marjorie and accused of believing a lot of the things that she believes in,” Boebert said. “I don’t believe in this just like, I don’t believe in Russian space lasers, Jewish space lasers, and all of this.”

When asked if she was a hard “no” against McCarthy, Boebert said, “No, I’m just saying we need to actually have an inside conversation and make sure that these promises are there.”

“I’ve supported and donated to Lauren Boebert,” Greene responded. “President Trump has supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. Kevin McCarthy has supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. She just barely came through by 500 votes.”

“She gladly takes our $$$ but when she’s been asked: Lauren refuses to endorse President Trump, she refuses to support Kevin McCarthy, and she childishly threw me under the bus for a cheap sound bite,” Greene continued.

“The country is facing extremely difficult times,” Greene concluded. “Americans expect conservative fighters like us to work together to Save America and that is the only mission I’m 100% devoted to, not high school drama and media sound bites. Save America! Defeat the Democrats!”

The minor squabble between the two comes as McCarthy attempts to secure the position of House Speaker in January.

A small handful of Republicans, including Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC), Rep. Bob Good (R-VA), Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT), and Rep. Andy Biggs, are standing in his way (R-AZ).

Several other Republicans have expressed reservations or have yet to commit, including Reps. Scott Perry (R-CA), Dan Bishop (R-NC), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Chip Roy (R-TX), Andrew Clyde (R-GA), Eli Crane (R-AZ), and Andy Ogles (R-AZ) (R-TN).

According to a Republican source on Capitol Hill who talked with The Daily Wire on Thursday afternoon, the 12 House Republicans opposing McCarthy were mostly motivated by a desire for limelight or a personal grievance that was minor in comparison to the issue at hand.

“Too many career politicians have used the America First movement as a springboard to ‘Me First,’” said a senior Trump World official. “This entire effort isn’t about policy or principle, it’s about a small group of politicians wanting the limelight at the expense of the movement.”
