During an appearance on MSNBC, James Carville said that there is a "staggering" amount of "white trashdom" in the GOP, and that Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia "dresses like white trash."
Disgruntled lawmakers heckled President Joe Biden during parts of his State of the Union address on Tuesday, including when the president said that some Republicans would like Medicare and Social Security to "sunset." After Biden's remark, a chorus of disapproving lawmakers erupted. Greene yelled, "Liar."
\u201cPresident Biden: "Instead of making the wealthy pay their fair share, some Republicans want Medicare and Social Security to sunset. I'm not saying it's the majority."\n\nRep. Marjorie Taylor Greene: "Liar!"\u201d— CSPAN (@CSPAN) 1675824490
Greene's outfit at the State of the Union was meant to evoke the idea of the Chinese spy balloon that the U.S. downed last week. The Hill reported that a spokesperson indicated the lawmaker "wore her outfit to highlight something President Biden refused to address in his speech, the white Chinese spy balloon."
"Biden refused to mention it, just like he refused to stop the intelligence gathering operation that traversed the United States and surveilled some of our most important military facilities in the country," Greene spokesperson Nick Dyer said, according to the outlet.
During a 2021 MSNBC appearance, Carville suggested that he holds the equivalent of a "white trashology" Ph.D. but that Greene and Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado could be the topic of a "dissertation."
Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders delivered the Republican address to the nation on Tuesday after Biden's speech.
"President Biden is unwilling to defend our border, defend our skies, and defend our people. He is simply unfit to serve as commander in chief," she declared. She added, "While you reap the consequences of their failures, the Biden administration seems more interested in woke fantasies than the hard reality Americans face every day."
