(LibertySociety.com) – On February 27, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) appeared on “CNN Sunday Morning,” stating Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was “missing a few IQ points.” The Utah senator was upset after hearing Greene and Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) attended a conference hosted by Nick Fuentes – an alleged white supremacist. In fact, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) banned him from its conference.
Romney said no one from either political party should support racism or white nationalism in any way, calling both Republican legislators “morons.”

Evidently, Greene was unaware of Fuentes’ reputation before and during the event, but she would only take responsibility for her own words. She claimed her interest was simply to address young “America First patriots.”
The Georgia legislator said she wouldn’t play the “guilt by association game,” although she did admit some of the speeches were “unsavory.”
Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) also criticized Greene and Gosar for attending the event, stating it was pro-Putin and anti-Semitic. Many in the Republican party are unhappy with Cheney and her involvement with the January 6 committee. However, the Republican National Convention chairwoman agreed with her opinion in this instance.
Greene refused to apologize for attending because she doesn’t believe she did anything wrong. Gosar has yet to comment.
