"If you want to be a big girl, you need to get rid of your diaper and come out and be able to talk to the American citizens". Ocasio-Cortez continued walking away, and Greene began walking faster and shouting at Ocasio-Cortez, asking her why she supports "antifa" and Black Lives Matter, which she falsely said was a "terrorist group", according to the Post. On Wednesday, Greene followed the NY congresswoman down a hallway in the Capitol and shouted after her as Ocasio-Cortez walked away.
Her behavior toward Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday was similar to her effort to confront young gun-control activist David Hogg - who survived the 2018 mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school - as he walked around the Capitol grounds amid a lobbying push in 2019 for new gun laws. "Nutty. Cortez", Greene says to the camera on the way to the congresswoman's office, mispronouncing "Ocasio".
In February, Greene was removed from her committee assignments due to her past actions and violent public statements.
This is not a new move for Greene, although one would hope that she wouldn't still be pulling stunts like this after having been elected to Congress.
A 2019 video also surfaced showing how she had shouted "stop being a baby" through Ocasio-Cortez's locked office door.More news: Former US policeman could face longer sentence for Floyd murder
She has also expressed support for the radical ideology of QAnon, a sprawling set of false claims that have coalesced into an extremist ideology that has radicalized its followers, some of whom participated in the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. She also defends Antifa and BLM rioters.
"Her kind of fixation has lasted for several years now", the New York Democrat said. They rallied around her in February after some of her past comments came to light, including her endorsement of calls to assassinate leading Democrats.
During her weekly press conference at the Capitol on Thursday, May 13, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denounced Greene for her "verbal assault" and "abuse" of Ocasio-Cortez, saying that it is "so beyond the pale of anything that is in keeping with bringing honor to the House".
This is not the first confrontation Greene has had with a Democratic member of Congress that has caused them to raise safety concerns. "AOC is a fraud & a hypocrite", she posted on Twitter.
Ocasio-Cortez later criticized House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy in a tweet for protecting Greene while sanctioning Representative Justin Amash for his stance on former president Donald Trump.More news: World Health Organization has not associated 'Indian Variant' with B.1.617 strain, says Centre
And it marks the latest example of allegedly disruptive behavior by Greene and her staff. "And so I think that this is an assessment that needs to be made by the proper professional".
While Greene has repeatedly singled out Ocasio-Cortez as a high-profile target, the congresswoman from NY is hardly the only lawmaker who has been subjected to the Georgia Republican's harassment.
In the video, from a since-deleted Facebook Live of Greene's that was saved by CNN's KFile, Greene tells Ocasio-Cortez to "get rid of your diaper", referring to the congresswoman's office as a "day care".
