Is Marjorie Taylor Greene Urging Civil War In Her Twitter Poll?

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene seems to think it’s a great idea to break up the country into red and blue states, without realizing that her own state just went blue in the last election.

Yesterday, the congresswoman from Georgia, who boasts about being a “Proud American” and “100% Pro-Life” in her Twitter bio, sounded like she was neither when she asked her 449.2K followers to vote on whether America should have a “national divorce” “by R&D states.”

HuffPost noted that a lot of people on Twitter think Greene is calling for a civil war. Even if it’s “only” a secession she wants, it’s horrifying to see a woman who swore an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution suggesting it should be overturned.

But it’s somewhat reassuring to see the Twitter clapbacks she got:

As I write this, “stay together” is beating out “national divorce.”
