QANON Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg is trained “like a dog” in a resurfaced interview as Democratic lawmakers prepare to remove her from committees.
In the 2019 interview with then-Georgia Gun Owners executive director Patrick Parsons, Greene spoke about following Hogg around Capitol Hill.
“So he is very trained, he's like a dog, he's completely trained,” Greene said of Hogg in the video found by NBC News on Tuesday.
Greene told Parsons, who is now her chief of staff, that Hogg “only talks when he’s scripted.”
The Republican representative who pushes multiple conspiracy theories said that a “gaggle of girls” and female “handlers” in the 20s and 30s were following Hogg around Capitol Hill.
Greene was talking about a video in which she trailed Hogg and called him a “coward” and asked him if he understood that his classmates would have died if the guard at the Parkland school was not armed.
The Hogg video went viral last week after CNN reported that Greene in Facebook posts expressed support for executing Democratic lawmakers including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
In the 2019 interview, Greene also claimed that Hogg was brainwashing his female followers.
“Here they are, they are so naive and they are being so brainwashed into fighting to take away something that protects them as women,” the Georgia representative said, referring to firearms.
“I was heartbroken, literally heartbroken. I'm so thankful for my Second Amendment rights.”
The pro-Donald Trump Congresswoman continued that the women were “fighting to get rid of the right to protect themselves from getting raped.”
“I'm looking at this idiot, David Hogg, leading these girls who are clueless, absolutely clueless, into giving up the greatest thing that protects them,” she said.
The new, previously unreported interview arose as Democrats demand that Republicans remove Greene from all the committees she serves on.
Last week, Greene was given seats on the House Education and Labor Committee and the House Budget Committee.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy that Republicans must remove Greene or Democrats will take up the matter during the House Rules Committee meeting on Wednesday.
Greene has said that the Parkland massacre, in which 17 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students died, was a “false flag planned shooting.”
She also previously indicated support for the QAnon conspiracy theory that claims that Trump was fighting a “deep state” network of elites in politics, entertainment, business and the media.
Democratic Rep Debbie Wasserman Schultz introduced a resolution to remove Greene from her committees.
A majority vote, which Democrats have, is needed to take Greene off the committees.
A handful of Republicans are opposing Greene, including Senate Minority Mitch McConnell who on Monday slammed her “looney lies” and called her views a “cancer for the Republican Party.”
