QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has said ‘nobody cares about the stupid royals’ after Meghan and Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview.
The Republican tore into conservative media for becoming distracted by the Palace drama and not holding Democrats to account in the ‘s***hole’ of D.C.
Greene, 46, said journalists are too busy painting her as a ‘horned scary lady’ to bother scrutinising Joe Biden’s policies, including the Covid relief bill worth $1.9 trillion and the ‘Green New Deal’ worth between $2 and $4 trillion.
She told Stephen Bannon’s War Room podcast: ‘The news, our conservative media has got to do better. They’re sitting here talking about the royals – nobody cares about the stupid royals. What we need to look at is the consequences of these deals.’

The mother-of-three, from Georgia, said she had left behind an ‘American dream’ to come to the Swamp in D.C., referring to the successful construction business inherited from her father that she and her husband run across 11 states.
Greene said that in addition to her business acumen, she was a ‘momma bear’ and that her children motivated her to protect their futures from radical left-wing ideologues.
‘I don’t want to be here at all,’ she told Bannon. ‘I gave up an awesome life to be here, I gave up an American dream to come into this, what I consider to be a s***hole because I’m p***ed off, because I’m watching the greatest country in the world burn down …
‘Our country is on fire and we’re just – it’s like that meme, you’re sitting in there, and your like the little dog and everything is on fire.’
Greene added: ‘I never wanted to be in politics, I’ve actually always been disgusted by politics.’
She described D.C. as an industry which is profitable for lawmakers in both parties.
‘Politics is a business, it’s an industry, it generates so much money, it’s an economy in itself. So whether it’s Republicans or Democrats these people are all invested in keeping this industry going, this big nasty pool that we call the Swamp, but it’s really its own economy,’ Greene told Bannon.
She added: ‘Business as usual is the whole reason why we’re losing our country and business as usual doesn’t work and it’s a failure.
‘If business as usual was the way regular people ran a private company, people’s companies would fail and then they would be left homeless.’
Biden yesterday signed his $1.9 trillion Covid relief package which the Republicans say is a ‘multitrillion-dollar Trojan Horse.’
The president said: ‘This historic legislation is about rebuilding the backbone of this country and giving people in this nation, working people, middle class folks, people who built the country a fighting chance. That’s what the essence of this is.’
But Mitch McConnell took to the floor of the house to say that the bill was a means of sneaking left-wing policies through Congress.
‘This wasn’t a bill to finish off the pandemic, it was a multitrillion-dollar Trojan horse full of bad old liberal ideas,’ the Minority Leader said.
‘President Biden’s own staff keep calling this legislation quote “the most progressive bill in American history.” Hardly the commonsense bipartisanship that the president promised.’
The bill passed the Senate on Saturday, without a single Republican approving it, before going back to the House for final approval.

Biden signed the bill into law on Thursday, and later that evening delivered his first primetime address, reassuring Americans that there was light at the end of the tunnel.
The legislation is more than twice the size of the $787-billion 2009 American Recovery Act.
It is the latest in a series of such aid packages since last spring that together have provided roughly $4 trillion in assistance for individuals, businesses, states and local governments.
It continues a pattern of spending which has been consistent throughout the world during the pandemic – for politicians to try and borrow their way out of the crisis.
Many economists argue that the fact it has worked up until now is astonishing and that the level of debt is totally unprecedented.
The president will hold a signing celebration at the White House on Friday with congressional leaders. Only Democrats are expected to attend with members from the House and Senate to be in attendance.
