Democrat Congressman San Nicolas, of Guam, marched National Guard troops from his home territory through the halls of Congress, leading them straight to the office door of an opposing party congressperson.
Rep. Nicolas stopped his 20 or so troops to office door of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. As majestic music plays, since this was all done with pride on the part of Rep. Nicolas, he stands in the hallway outside Rep. Greene's office with a gift basket, flanked by troops in camo fatigues.
Nicolas approached the door, and an aide knocks briefly before entering the office unannounced. He can be heard to say that Nicolas has come to pay a visit, and an aide of Greene's walks through the office, briefly glancing outside the door.
Some of the troops shoot the interaction on their cell phones.
Greene's staff tells Nicolas that she's actually not around, and tries to do something normal, like arrange an appointment. It's at this point that Nicolas alerts the staff to the presence of his National Guard troops, and the staff is cordial and welcoming to the men and women in uniform.
Greene's legislative director, Taylor, makes pleasantries with Nicolas, who absolutely insists that he come on out and say hi to the troops. Taylor, seemingly an affable fellow, agrees. He thanks them for "all that they do," and notes that the congresswoman would love to meet them when she's back in the office.
It is unclear what reaction a Democrat representative would have were he or she to be visited by Rep. Greene and her National Guard troops from Georgia, or a congressman and troops from any other state or territory.
Congressmen do not typically walk the halls of the Capitol flanked by military troops, nor bring those troops to the offices of opposing party representatives.
