Jasmine Crockett claims MTG was 'racist' when calling out her 'fake eyelashes' in Congress

"So yeah I absolutely think she only did it to be racist towards me." 


On Sunday, Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) claimed that Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene's (R-GA) using her fake eyelashes to insult her during a House Oversight Committee hearing to hold Merrick Garland in contempt was "racist."

In an interview on CNN's State of the Union, host Jake Tapper, who will be moderating the first presidential debate in June, asked Crockett if Greene going after her eyelashes was "racist."

"I think that her specifically doing it to me, yes that was the intent," Crockett said.

"MAGA has historically been on social media doing the things, where they say 'oh she's black with lashes and nails and hair, so she's ghetto,'" Crockett claimed. "So to me, this was her playing into that rhetoric and trying to amplify for the MAGA crowd. So yeah I absolutely think she only did it to be racist towards me." 

After Tapper tried to clarify if using lashes as an insult was a racial trope, Crockett said, "It is buying into a racist trope." She then admitted, "But the reality is that women of all colors wear lashes."

On Thursday, during a late night session in the House, Crockett, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, and Greene each hurled insults towards each other in a House Oversight Committee session. Greene told Crockett that her "fake eyelashes" were preventing her from reading. The purpose of the late nigh session was to determine if Biden's AG Merrick Garland should be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena.

Over the past few years, both Steve Bannon and Peter Navarro, both Trump advisors, were convicted on contempt of Congress charges for refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas.

Ocasio-Cortez jumped in and yelled, "That's disgusting" and asked for Greene's words to be struck because they were "absolutely unacceptable." 

After a back and forth with Ocasio-Cortez and Greene, Crockett asked for congressional protocol if she hypothetically referred to someone's "bleach blonde, bad-built butch body." Crockett will now be selling t-shirts with that quote printed on them. She announced the new merch on Sunday.

Discussing the incident later, Ocasio-Cortez blamed Greene for causing Crockett's "devolution of conduct." She said, "AFTER the Republican Chair and GOP members broke official House protocol to allow MTG’s horrific opening solo of rhetoric, they THEN made another change to dispense with the legislative process. THAT part is not getting enough attention."

She went on to claim that the incident was an attempt by Greene to "undermind deeper processes and rule of law." She added, "They WANT you to think this was some random devolution of conduct instead of a structured GOP outcome. We must understand who and what actions created the situation. It matters."

Anyone who watched this amusing display, saw Crockett go ghetto in her responses.
