Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green tried to turn a chapter about her behavior against political rivals on Friday when asked about the latest video of her sarcastic agent, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Speaking to Greg Kelly on Newsmax, the right-wing network, Greene described several confrontations with Democrats she said had made her a victim of aggression, in contrast to what she saw as a manipulative media narrative.
“They accused me of being aggressive and saying my manners were wrong,”; she said.
Green has been harshly criticized several times for confrontational behavior and advocating for legitimate causes, the latest Wednesday following Ocasio Cortez on Capitol Hill “screamed”, according to witnesses. At that time, she incorrectly said Ocasio-Cortez Support terrorists

Green was released from a committee assignment in February after a series of incidents arose as a result of her endorsement of political violence.
With that in mind, Greene told Kelly Friday, “There’s no ethical violation against me, I haven’t done anything wrong.”
Kelly was keen to create a similar caption in his interview, saying Democrats, for example, Ocasio-Cortez and Eric Swalwell, who also criticized Greene – are “choosing you”.
Green agrees, says “They don’t know what to do with me because I won’t back down and be intimidated by bullying tactics.
She cited several cases she said were bullying from Democrats:
