Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Former Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) knocked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for "acting completely irresponsibly" on Friday amid her opposition to delivering aid to Ukraine. Buck said Greene is mouthing Russian propaganda and added that she's "really hurting" U.S. foreign policy in the process. "She's acting completely irresponsibly," Buck said.

Buck, who left Congress last month after announcing that he wouldn't seek another term back in the fall, repeated his "Moscow Majorie" nickname for the Georgia Republican during an interview with CNN's Erica Hill.

"Well, 'Moscow Marjorie' has reached a new low," said Buck after Hill tossed to a clip of Russian TV personalities claiming Greene as "running Congress" and "believes Americans should help Putin win."

He continued, "You know, during the Russian Revolution, Lenin talked about American journalists who were writing glowing reports about Russia at the time as 'useful idiots' and I don't even think that Marjorie reaches that level of being a 'useful idiot' here."

Buck said Greene is mouthing Russian propaganda and added that she's "really hurting" U.S. foreign policy in the process.

"She's acting completely irresponsibly," Buck said.

Refreshing that a Republican is willing to call a spade a spade (or a traitor a traitor). Though making fun of MTG has become a cherished pastime for many on the left, no one should ignore just how dangerous, subversive, and toxic her brand of white nationalist politics truly is.

If Democrats and Biden aren't constantly pointing to both her and Trump - and their outright disdain for Ukraine and their alignment with Putin and Russia - as the faces of today's GOP, they're simply not doing it right.

Good description. Find her bank accounts, especially overseas. Let's see who fills the piggy's piggies.

"She's acting completely irresponsibly," Buck said.

No. She's acting responsibly.
Her responsibility it to Putin and the GOP.

She is far from being alone in that regard on the Right.

At this point, she has probably deluded herself into thinking that Putin is the governor of the state of Georgia.
