“During a recent interview with Alex Jones, the conspiracy host told Marjorie Taylor Greene that she should consider running for President because she is “way smarter” than either Trump or DeSantis, and she’s a better fighter. This would actually be hilarious to see happen, as Greene doesn’t exactly play well with average voters, which would make her campaign one of the biggest political failures of all time. Farron Cousins discusses this.

Alex Jones is out with a, uh, new conspiracy. And this one, this conspiracy theory he is pushing today is that Marjorie Taylor green is smart. And that might be one of the most ludicrous conspiracies that Alex Jones has ever pushed, claiming that Marjorie Taylor green is an intelligent individual. Here is what he said during a recent interview with the representative from Georgia, I think you would pull better and be a better candidate than DeSantis and Trump. I’d rather just go ahead and back you for president, you’re way smarter. You’re smarter than both of them, and you’ve got the guts we need. Everybody loves you. I’m serious. We need to think about MTG for president. Get the new world order off my back. Stop the drag queen story time. We want you MTG Marjorie Taylor green did in fact respond to that. And she said, well, thank you, Alex.
And I will tell you it’s not something that I don’t consider, but you know, I’m the kind of person that if I ever get engaged in something I’m going to win and I won’t do something, unless I think it’s possible. So a couple of things to address here, let’s start with her, her final thing. Like I won’t do it unless I think it’s possible. So she clearly doesn’t think it’s possible. And this for the first time in my life, I agree with Marjorie Taylor greed. It ain’t possible. And I’ll get more to that in a minute, but let’s, let’s go back to the, your way smarter thing. Um, Marjorie Taylor green has been accused of a lot of things, but being smarter than literally anyone is not one of them. Now I’m not saying Marjorie Taylor green is an idiot. I am saying that if you said Marjorie Taylor green was an idiot, I wouldn’t disagree with you.
I wouldn’t fight you on that point. I do think, um, she is calculated, which I guess you may count as a form of intelligence, but in terms of knowing things, you know, actual smarts, uh, it ain’t there. We’ve seen, we we’ve seen the, the typos. We’ve seen the basic lack of understanding of very simple issues. Like she’s not smarter than maybe smarter than tr you know what? I’ll give her that maybe she is smarter than Trump, right? Cuz I’ve repeatedly said, I don’t think Trump is a smart person at all. He is a great con man, the best we’ve ever seen possibly. So I give him that, but smart, Uhuh, this man is not intelligent. So Marjorie Taylor green could in fact be smarter than Trump smarter than DeSantis. Hell no, I hate Rhonda Sandis. I think he is an absolutely evil authoritarian bastard, but you will get nothing but resistance from me. If you try to say he is stupid because he isn’t, he is very smart. He knows
Exactly what he is doing. He knows how to play a crowd. He knows how to get people worked up. He knows how to win the system. He is smart. And that’s again, one of the things that makes him even more dangerous than Donald Trump, because he is competent, but Marjorie Taylor green, right? Alex Jones said, everybody loves you. And she says, oh, I’m not gonna do anything unless I’m a hundred percent sure that I can win people. Don’t love her enough people in her district like her, but, but we’re talking about little bitty, tiny, you know, backwards district, no offense to the district in Georgia and by backwards, I mean like it’s a small kind of it’s, you know, one district in a Southern state.
where your first election, you ran unopposed and only got 74% of the vote. Um, that’s not a national campaign. How does Marjorie Taylor green play in Michigan? How does she play in Wisconsin? How does she play in literally anywhere outside of her tiny district? How does she play statewide in Georgia? If Trump couldn’t carry the state? I sure as hell doubt, Marjorie Taylor green could having said all that. I’d love to see it happen. I would love to see Marjorie Taylor green put up there on the national stage saying the same stupid crap that she says any given day. I would love to see that happen. I would love for the whole country who may not be paying attention to this lunatic. I would love for them to be forced to see what this Republican party has become. Cuz she is the face of it.”
