There was a heated battle between two of the GOP’s most performative congresswomen last month. Fortunately, neither combatant was armed.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) got into an angry debate just a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol. The spat was said to have been over Greene’s speech at a February event with white supremacist ties that drew negative attention to the Republican party. Boebert, no stranger to right-wing rhetoric, apparently took exception to her colleague’s appearance at that event.

The confrontation between the women is said to have taken place at a gathering of the House Freedom Caucus, where at least one onlooker feared things may have turned violent had a caucus member not intervened.

Both women are conspiracy-obsessed gun enthusiasts. Greene once suggested “Jewish lasers” fired from space may have been responsible for wildfires in California.

Politico said its report was backed by three people tied to the event. The political site claims that Boebert “detests” being linked to Greene, who is seen as a minor team player among congressional conservatives.

The pair were very much on the same page during President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address, where they stood side-by-side shouting out commentary.

Upon hearing about Greene’s appearance at the white power rally earlier in the year, moderate Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said he was reminded of a scene from the Western classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when one character said, “I’ve got morons on my team.”
