CNN commentator Van Jones called Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) “a disgraceful “clown” during a discussion on several verbal rifts at Thursday’s House Oversight Committee hearing.

Jones made the remarks during Friday’s broadcast of “The Situation Room” after host Wolf Blitzer stated, “Another political issue that’s unfolding over these past few hours, Democratic Congresswoman Jasmine Crockett is calling Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, racist following a very, very tense hearing last night that devolved into very personal attacks.”

Blitzer went on to play a clip from a House committee markup in which Greene, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) got into a war of words.

“Van what do you make of that?” Blitzer asked after playing the clip.

In response, Jones stated, “I think that the standard of conduct has been pulled down slow by some of these folks in Congress. They go there because they want to be celebrities. I’m talking about Marjorie Taylor Greene and others. Why do we even know her name? Marjorie Taylor Greene has never passed a bill. She’s never chaired a committee. She’s never done anything but be a provocateur and a clown and get under the skin of people and this kind of stuff that goes on.”

Jones went on to say that Greene is “a disgrace to the American people” whether or not she is racist.

“She’s a disgrace to that Congress. And she should just pass one bill. Do your job Marjorie. Every time we talk about her she’s doing some clownish nonsense and it’s ridiculous,” he added.

The rift between the Republican lawmaker and the two Democrats occurred during the Thursday House Oversight hearing, in which lawmakers discussed contempt of Congress proceedings for Attorney General Merrick Garland over his refusal to give the House access to audio of President Joe Biden’s interview with Special Counsel Robert Hur in his classified documents investigation.

Crockett had questioned Greene’s awareness of the purpose of the meeting due to a question she asked. In retaliation, Greene said, “I think your fake eyelashes are messing up your –”

Ocasio-Cortez butted in later to ask that Greene’s remarks be taken down, calling her words “unacceptable.”

“How dare you attack the physical appearance of another person!” Ocasio-Cortez stated, prompting Greene to ask, “Are your feelings hurt?”

The two lawmakers engaged each other in a back and forth for a while, during which Ocasio-Cortez retorted, “Oh! Girl, baby, girl!”

Greene would later tell Ocasio-Cortez that she is not very intelligent.
