GOP firebrand Marjorie Taylor-Greene clashed with former secretary of labor under Bill Clinton Robert Reich on Twitter, with Greene calling Reich a communist and Reich claiming green was ‘promoting hate.’
As The Hill reports:
“Can we all agree that Marjorie Taylor Green must be expelled from Congress?” Reich, former president Bill Clinton‘s secretary of Labor and a veteran political operative who served in the administrations of Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford, said in an initial tweet.
Greene responded: “Don’t know you, but when I saw Berkley in your bio, I got it. Just put the hammer and sickle with it.”
After pointing out her last name is spelled with an “e” on the end, Greene told Reich: “Being a communists professor, you’ve never done the real hard work that builds the economy, you just teach ideas that will destroy it.” …
Reich shot back at Greene, saying “All you do is promote hate.”
All you do is promote hate. Hate is destroying our country. (Oh, and Berkeley is spelled with an "e" after the k.)

Though both parties traded insults, only one accusation was really convincing and it likely wasn’t the one made by Reich.
