A heated catfight broke out Thursday evening during a House Oversight Committee hearing, during which Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) asked if any of the Democrats present were employing the daughter of Trump Judge Juan Merchan - whose progressive political consulting firm has represented VP Kamala Harris, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and other liberals.

The committee was considering whether Attorney General Merrick Garland should be held in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over recordings of President Joe Biden's interview with special counsel Robert Hur - which the White House exercised executive privilege over earlier this week - when Greene asked the Democrats about Merchan's daughter.

"I’d like to know if any of the Democrats on this committee are employing Judge Merchan’s daughter," Greene asked.

"Please tell me what that has to do with Merrick Garland," shot back Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-MO).

"Oh, Goldman, that’s right. He’s advising," Greene said, ignoring Crockett.

"Do you know what we’re here for?" Crockett said back, adding "You know we’re here for AG."

To which Green said "I don’t think you know what you’re here for ... I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading."

This triggered Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who moved to take down Greene's words, saying "That is absolutely unacceptable. How dare you attack the physical appearance of another person."

"Are your feelings hurt?" replied Greene.

To which ACO exclaimed "Remove her words down."

"Aww," Greene responded.

"Oh girl, baby girl," AOC shot back. "Don't even play."

Following a brief recess, Crockett called a point of order and asked House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) if Greene's behavior was ok.

"I’m just curious, just to better understand your ruling," said Crockett. "If someone on this committee then starts talking about somebody’s bleach-blond, bad-built, butch body, that would not be engaging in personalities, correct?"

At this point Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) jumped into the fray, demanding Crockett's words be removed - to which Crockett exploded into a verbal tirade against Luna, shouting and using profanity.

"Calm down, please calm down," said Luna. "You're out of control!"
