Insults were flying between Dallas Rep. Jasmine Crockett and Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene during a recent congressional hearing, demonstrating the more significant problem of contempt in Congress between Democrats and Republicans.

FOX 4 KDFW reported that it “all started when the Georgia congresswoman commented on the Dallas congresswoman’s appearance during a U.S. House oversight committee meeting.

“‘I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading,’ Greene told Crockett.

“The Republican committee chair ruled that Greene’s comment did not violate the rules.”

Crockett shot back, insulting Greene, per Fox 4:

“‘I’m curious,’ Crockett said. ‘To better understand your ruling, if someone on this committee starts talking about someone’s bleach blonde, bad-built butch body, that would not be engaging in personalities?’

“The purpose of the meeting was to hold a vote of contempt for the attorney general, which eventually happened — but not before things spiraled out of control.”
