Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has become a big issue for the GOP. Almost every politician appearing on Sunday political shows were asked about the controversy surrounding the freshman Congresswoman. Politicians on both sides of the aisle were asked whether she should be stripped of her new committee assignment or expelled. Here are some of their replies:
“I think Republican leaders ought to stand up and say it is totally unacceptable,” GOP Sen. Rob Portman says about Rep.
