Marjorie Taylor Greene was deserted by right-wing reporters as extra essential Republicans arrived

Two reporters from the conservative Right Side Broadcasting Network discussing former President Donald Trump’s rally for Pennsylvania GOP nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano reportedly left Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene hanging in mid-sentence when they saw the gubernatorial candidate arrive at the event.

Ms. Greene was debating campaign tactics with the reporters and going through a litany of right-wing talking points when Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial candidate Mr. Mastriano arrived at the scene.

“Traditional GOP, traditional ‘Republican parties’ usually want to keep the underdogs out, but we have to keep people from coming, successful people —” Ms Green said, before a cheering crowd drew reporters’ attention.

One of the RSBN reporters broke away from Ms Greene and ran over to try to catch Mr Mastriano, calling him by name.

“Oh,” Ms. Greene said as the reporters broke off and ran toward Mr. Mastriano.

Speaking at the Wilkes-Barre rally later that night, Ms Greene repeated Mr Trump’s fraudulent claims that the 2020 election had been stolen from him.

“Is there anything else you want to know, Pennsylvania? President Trump won the 2020 election,” she said. “That’s right, we know President Trump won.”

That claim has been refuted multiple times after multiple Republican-led voting reviews confirmed that Joe Biden had won the election. Mr. Biden eventually won Pennsylvania in 2020.

Mr Mastriano also praised the former president – who backed him in the state governor’s race – calling him a “champion of 9/11”. The former president famously boasted after 9/11 that his building was the tallest tower in Manhattan, after the Twin Towers collapsed his building was the tallest in the city. This statement was also wrong.

For his part, Mr Trump spent two hours ranting about the FBI’s seizure of classified government documents from his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, and repeated claims that he had won the election.

The former president falsely claimed that he “ran twice, won twice” and teased that he “may just have to do it again” although he has still not officially announced his candidacy in the 2024 presidential election.
