During an appearance Tuesday night on the highly conservative U.S. broadcast One America News, the Republican from the state of Georgia criticized “Nancy Pelosi’s gazpacho police who are spying on congressmen.”
Vegetable soup instead of Nazi methods: a slip brought a lot of ridicule to the controversial U.S. MP Marjorie Taylor Greene. She obviously wanted to allude to the Gestapo, but misunderstood the word with the cold vegetable soup from Spain.
Pelosi is the Democratic leader of the House of Representatives and hated by many conservatives, including those outraged by the House Committee, which is investigating the January 2021 Capitol storm by supporters of former U.S. President Donald Trump.
Following the slide, well-known Spanish chef José Andrés Greene offered to try a portion of real gazpacho in one of his restaurants in Washington.
“No soup for those illegally spying on members of Congress”
Greene tried his hand at suicide on Wednesday. She wrote on Twitter: “No soup for those who illegally spy on members of Congress, but throw them into the goulash.” The reference to the Hungarian meat soup was apparently an allusion to another statement from her failed television appearance in which she accused the Democrats of placing the attackers on the Capitol in the “Gulag”.
Greene, who supports Trump’s election allegations and downplays the attack on the Capitol, is known for spreading conspiracy theories. Among other things, she compared vaccination during the pandemic to the yellow Jewish star – a popular comparison among people who refuse to get vaccinated in Germany. She also supported online calls for the execution of well-known Democratic politicians like Pelosi.
