MTG Rips Ex-Twitter Execs New Cloaca As AOC Melts Down With Hysterical Lies
Update (1305ET): Fireworks ensued during today's Congressional grilling of Twitter execs by Republicans on the House Oversight Committee, while AOC had a total meltdown while lying through her teeth.
During one tense exchange, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) interrupted an exchange between Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-CA) and Twitter's former head of Trust and Safety, asking: "Who made you in charge of what’s true and what’s false?"
"You permanently banned my Twitter account but you allowed child porn all over Twitter," she continued.

Greene was permanently suspended in January 2022 after tweeting VAERS data about Covid-19 vaccine deaths.
Meanwhile, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) told outright lies about the Twitter account "Libs of TikTok," stating that Boston Children's Hospital never advertised hysterectomies for children.

Which they totally did...
The story about Boston Children's Hospital was also not a lie.— Greg Price (@greg_price11) February 8, 2023
Chaya literally posted a video on their YouTube to her Twitter.https://t.co/YB71gc5DSM
The great irony here is that @AOC is lying. Libs of TikTok has simply reported the facts about what these hospitals have said about their own services. It's all documented. But this is what they do — they use misinformation to smear you as being a source of it. https://t.co/b5rRlIrFDz— Seth Dillon (@SethDillon) February 8, 2023

She also claimed the NY Post's Hunter Biden laptop story was "alleged," and that the Post should have shared more information about their sourcing for the story (they did).
Rep. @AOC repeatedly refers to @nypost's reporting on Hunter's laptop contents as "alleged," then blames the Post for Twitter censoring them, saying they should have shared more info about their sourcing on this "fake story" pic.twitter.com/1k56oK8Llh— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) February 8, 2023
The correlation between AOC's theatrics and her lying is uncanny.

The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday is hearing testimony from three former, top Twitter employees over the company's handling of the Hunter Biden laptop story.
House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-K), who has launched a broad investigation into the Biden family dealings, is probing the social media giant following revelations from new Twitter owner Elon Musk, who released internal communications from Twitter staff about their censorship efforts.

In anticipation of today's testimony, White House spokesman Ian Sams blasted the GOP for pulling a "bizarre political stunt."
"This appears to be the latest effort by the House Republican majority’s most extreme MAGA members to question and relitigate the outcome of the 2020 election," he said in a statement, adding "This is not what the American people want their leaders to work on."
"As the president has said and made his focus, the American people expect their leaders to work together in a bipartisan way on the issues that most impact their lives and their families, not attack his family with long-debunked conspiracy theories."
Mr. Biden’s campaign branded the now-authenticated laptop as Russian disinformation, a theory that was peddled by more than 50 former U.S. senior intelligence officials in an open letter to the public.

The hearing is the first of many focusing on "protecting speech from government interference and social media bias," according to the committee.
"Immediately following the story’s publication, America witnessed a coordinated campaign by social media companies, mainstream news and the intelligence community to suppress and delegitimize the existence of Hunter Biden’s laptop and its contents," Comer will say. "We owe it to the American people to provide answers about this collusion to censor information about Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s business schemes."
