Marjorie Taylor Greene Says Hunter Biden Is 'Biggest Piece Of White Trash' In America - Ring of Fire



Over the weekend, Republican Representative Majorie Taylor Greene shared a video where she proclaimed that Hunter Biden is the "biggest piece of white trash" in all of America. The negative racial stereotypes that come along with that phrase are bad enough, but this woman has no right to refer to any other human being as "trash" given the way she acts as both a human and a member of Congress. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains what's happening.


====================

Marjorie Taylor Green posted a video of herself over this past weekend where she was speaking to a crowd. You can't really tell who's in the crowd, but she was talking to them. And of course, as usual went on a tangent about Hunter Biden, where she made a racially charged claim about Hunter and pretty much the entire Biden family. Now I'm gonna read you exactly what she said. Okay? I'm not gonna censor this even though it is considered a racial slur. I want you to hear it. And I also want you to realize the person who said it is Marjorie Taylor Green. She said quote, and this was, she's talking about, uh, uh, hunter Biden's alleged crimes that she swears she'll prove, but hasn't yet. She said, I want you to really think about that. Hunter Biden is the biggest piece of white trash in America. And then she added because of his father, Joe Biden has been in office longer than I've been alive. He has made a career of politics and through his career in politics, his family has gotten rich beyond their wildest dreams. And they've done that by selling his influence.

So not gonna repeat that statement again, but the biggest piece of trash in America, according to Marjorie Taylor Green is Hunter Biden. And of course, she's making all these outrageous claims. She also accused him of being involved in some form of sex trafficking. Said in that same video that she posted this past weekend, she is flirting. She's not even flirting. She is making outright advances towards defamation. Hunter Biden is not a public figure. Hunter Biden has never inserted himself into these conversations. Therefore, the bar for him to prove defamation is a hell of a lot lower than if he were a public figure. And she is outright saying he's involved in sex trafficking. She is calling him a pervert. She has done all of these things. She is not alleging criminal activity. She's saying he's committed criminal activity that is 100% something you get sued over.

Trust me. And it, it almost blows my mind every day that Hunter Biden and his legal team have not reached out with a lawsuit against Marjorie Taylor Green because this is getting ridiculous. What's even more ridiculous than her disgusting pot calling Kettle Black statement? Cuz if anybody's the biggest piece of trash in America, I'm pretty sure we can all agree that it's probably Marjorie Taylor Green. But she wasn't the only one going after Hunter. And of course the Biden family this past weekend, no Republican senator Josh Hawley went on Fox News to talk about the decline

Of manliness. The 90 pound guy who ran away from his friends at the Capitol Riot thinks there's a manliness problem in the United States. Guy looks like a walking toothpick and has the audacity to say that we've got a problem that men aren't manly enough. Yeah, look in the mirror, bud. I think you're gonna get to the heart of the problem right there, but Josh Hawley thinks he's gotten to the heart of the problem. The problem with manliness in the United States is of course, all because of Hunter Biden. I wish I was making that up. But you had Fox News hosts, uh, Maria Campos Duffy, who sets up Holly with this question. Uh, it does come down to an individual father taking responsibility for his family and his child, whether they're out of wedlock or not.

Ted Cruz Now Being Targeted By Special Prosecutor In Trump Probe - Ring of Fire



Ted Cruz led the charge for Republicans to overturn, or at the very least delay the certification of, the results of the 2020 presidential election in Congress. And now that it has been revealed that there were tapes of his plans based on conversations he had with Fox News hosts, special prosecutor Jack Smith has said he wants this material for his investigation. But don't get too excited - it may not be what it seems, as Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains.

So we have had a major interesting update with the Jack Smith Special Prosecutor investigation into Donald Trump's attempts to overturn the 2020 election. And those new developments involve Jack Smith requesting a copy of the recorded conversations of Republican Senator Ted Cruz to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, where Ted Cruz laid out his plan to her on how Republicans with himself in charge, were going to, at the very least, delay the certification of the 2020 electoral college votes. These phone calls, by the way, were recently revealed by former Fox News producer Abby Grossberg, as part of her lawsuit against the network. This revelation of the tapes has also, by the way, led to a potential criminal investigation into Fox News, according to gross Berg's lawyers who have been contacted by law enforcement. So Fox News may be under criminal investigation for hiding information from Dominion during that lawsuit.

And now, special prosecutor Jack Smith says, hold up. You got Ted Cruz on tape. I think I need that information as well. It's relevant to the investigations. I'm looking at attempts to overturn the 2020 election. You have tapes of Ted Cruz talking about his plans to overturn the 2020 election, or at the very least, delay it. I think I need to hear those. Jack Smith says, now, before you get your hopes up, think of a couple things here. And this actually was brought up by a legal expert on social media the other day, those tapes that Grossberg has of Ted Cruz. This was a recorded telephone conversation. It was not an interview that didn't air, it was a private phone conversation that was recorded. Now, depending where you are in the country, that can either be perfectly fine or totally illegal. Like if Ted Cruz was in Texas, when he made that call to Maria Bartiromo, it would be illegal to tape him without his knowledge and consent.

So if that's what happened, then this isn't Ted Cruz's in trouble. This is whoever recorded, whoever pressed record on that conversation, they are in trouble. But would Jack Smith really waste his time being like, oh, hold up. I need to investigate this thing. I think there's an illegally recorded conversation. No, he wouldn't. So it's a little confusing. It could be something. It could be nothing. Are we gonna see criminal charges against Ted Cruz? I think that's a little too much wishful thinking right there. But all we know is that at this point, Ted Cruz is a person of interest, I guess is the best term to use there.

He may not be a target of the investigation, he may not be a suspect in any fashion, but the tapes where he discussed his plan might be headed to that special prosecutor who's investigating the plans to do exactly what Ted Cruz said he was gonna do. I mean, we'll see what happens. We don't have a whole lot to go on. Jack Smith, of course, could be looking at anything. We know last week he got to talk to Mike Pence, so that's a really freaking huge uh, uh, development there. Maybe Mike Pence said, yeah, Ted Cruz reached out to me. We don't know any of this. All we have is speculation. We will find out eventually though, and based on the way that things are moving, that eventually actually seems pretty close to happening very soon.
