Stephen Colbert lambastes 'child-harassing psychopath' Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene

On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Thursday, Colbert ruthlessly mocked Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) after several stories about the QAnon believer came to light. Greene has supported conspiracies about the school shootings in Parkland, Florida and Newtown, Connecticut, and in 2017, made a video in which she claims that the mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 dead was a set-up by activists to promote gun control. Earlier this week, a video surfaced of Greene harassing Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.
“Okay, that looks stupid and cruel,” Colbert said after playing some of the video, “but that could just be a false flag operation by antifa to get us to think Marjorie Taylor Greene is a child-harassing psychopath.”
Greene has also advocated violence against prominent Democrats, including executing Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In response to a 2018 Facebook post by Greene, a commenter asked about it being time they can hang Obama and Clinton. Greene replied, “Stage is being set. Players are being put in place. We must be patient. This must be done perfectly or liberal judges would let them off.”
“Holy haul ‘em to The Hague, Batman. She’s not even trying to be discreet,” Colbert said in response. “At least mobsters use coded language.”
Colbert went on to have a lot of fun with Greene’s 2018 assertion that “lasers or blue beams of light” from space caused recent California wildfires.
