Democrat Rep. Marie Newman of Illinois on Wednesday put a transgender pride flag outside her office — which happens to sit directly across from the office of GOP freshman lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene…MTG’s response…EPIC!

“Our neighbor, [Greene], tried to block the Equality Act because she believes prohibiting discrimination against trans Americans is ‘disgusting, immoral, and evil,’” Newman, who has a transgender daughter, wrote on Twitter with a video of her hanging the flag. “Thought we’d put up our Transgender flag so she can look at it every time she opens her door.”


Greene quickly responded with her own video mocking Newman’s earlier tweet as she hung up a poster that said: “There are TWO genders: Male & Female. Trust The Science!”

“Thought we’d put up ours so [Newman] can look at it every time she opens her door,” Greene said.

In response, the firebrand Republican had a sign made that says “there are two genders: male & female” and “trust the science” and posted a video of herself hanging it, mocking Newman’s video.

“Our neighbor, @RepMarieNewman , wants to pass the so-called “Equality” Act to destroy women’s rights and religious freedoms. Thought we’d put up ours so she can look at it every time she opens her door,” Rep. Greene fired back with a winking emoji and an American flag.


In a subsequent tweet, to be clear, Rep. Greene asserted, “God created ONLY TWO genders.”

It’s common sense, Congresswoman Newman…THERE ARE ONLY TWO GENDERS.
