Watch: Marjorie Taylor Greene leaves 60 minutes host speechless over alleged pedophilia in Democratic Party
Marjorie Taylor Greene's 60 Minutes appearance was certainly one for the books. She defended calling the entire Democratic Party "pedophiles". Host Lesley Stahl seemed quite shocked, to say the least.
Stahl repeated MTG's claim to her that the Democratic Party is full of pedos, and waited for her response. But instead of couching her words or going on the defense, Greene simply said, "I would definitely say so. They support grooming children."
Of course Stahl denied this, totally incredulous at the idea. But Greene elaborated, "Even Joe Biden, the president himself, supports children being sexualized and having transgender surgeries. Sexualizing children is what pedophiles do to children."
Stahl's only response was "wow," along with a sassy little eye roll.

So that was pretty bold of our gal MTG. But it wasn't the only bold moment of the interview. MTG also said we should stop funding a proxy war in Ukraine and push for peace instead.
Stahl asked the totally-not-leading question, "You're opposed to giving Ukraine weapons and aid to help Ukraine fight off the Russians. It strikes me that that's what Putin wants."
MTG fired back, "I don't really care what Putin wants [...] What I have voted against is funding a war in Ukraine. The entire time I have been saying the United States needs to be pushing for peace in Ukraine. Not funding a proxy war with Russia."
Stahl pushed back with various arguments, like "Putin will invade Poland!" and "What about China?" But MTG held firm, simply explaining, "I'm sorry, but Ukraine is not the 51st state." Which many of our political leaders seem to have forgotten.

Love her or hate her, MTG is certainly a firecracker. And it's very refreshing to see a Republican politician stand firm in their beliefs and not try to please everyone in the room.
