Marjorie Taylor Greene changed one letter to ‘MAGA’ – and it didn’t go so well

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) inadvertently reminded people Wednesday that the initials in the slogan “MAGA” can also stand for “Make Another Gaffe Again.”

The Georgia Republican announced plans to force a referendum on House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) next week.

The motion is likely to fail, as Democrats announced Tuesday they will block her efforts to oust the chairman.

While Greene acknowledged the motion won’t pass, she said forcing the vote will show voters that Democrats support Johnson, who she said is merely following the direction of Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) .

At one point during her press conference, she tried a move that probably sounded great in theory: She pulled out a blue-and-yellow “MUGA” hat — for “Make Ukraine Great Again,” a reference to former President Donald Trump. ‘ – and awkwardly placed it on top of a Johnson and Jeffries poster.

Yes, we know, pictures or it didn’t happen.

Greene was so proud of her performative hat trick that she posted a video to X, formerly Twitter, with a note criticizing the “uniparty,” her term for elected officials trying to work together:

The Uniparty hates MAGA. They don’t want to make America great again.

The Uniparty is MUGA. Make Ukraine great again.

Another forever war with hundreds of BILLIONS of your dollars being spent, brought to you by Uniparty Chairman Mike Johnson.

Johnson doesn’t seem concerned about Greene’s efforts or her hat collection. He actually responded to a reporter’s question about her with “Bless your heart,” a Southern phrase often used to politely insult people, and asking, “Is she a serious legislator?”

Meanwhile, Greene’s “MUGA hat” stunt didn’t get the reaction she probably expected based on the reactions from users of X, formerly Twitter.

For starters, a lot of people loved the MUGA hats.

Others simply doubled down on their mockery of Greene.
