Rep. Jasmine Crockett Claims She’s Smarter Than Trump Voters


Representative Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) recently claimed she’s “smarter than MAGA” in an interview with MSNBC.

While speaking about her recent verbal confrontation with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Crockett stated
“I also took this as an opportunity to again flex on MAGA and let them know that I will always be smarter than you.”

“You can call me a DEI hire all you want to and launch all of the continuous insults that you want to against me but she is no match for me when it comes to intellect,” added Crockett.

Here’s the moment she said it:

Here’s what Breitbart reported:

Representative Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Velshi” that a “hit dog hollered” when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) took a jab at her during a House Oversight Committee hearing earlier this week.

Crockett said, “I was so frustrated. We are always told that we are supposed to play within the systems and let the systems work. This is yet another example of, when it comes down to seeking justice for someone that looks like me, it is like the system doesn’t really know what that looks like. And so absolutely, she was what we call engaging in personalities and therefore, her words were to be stricken and therefore she was to be kicked out of committee for the rest of the evening. But instead, that is not with the chairman did. The idea that I should just sit there and pretend that I’m on the plantation and that we are not both duly elected members of Congress and I’m supposed to just take it. I did not launch back with another personal attack against her. I asked for clarification and a hit dog hollered.”

She continued, “I also took this as an opportunity to again flex on MAGA and let them know that I will always be smarter than you and you can call me a DEI hire all you want to and launch all of the continuous insults that you want to against me but she is no match for me when it comes to intellect.”

Per Raw Story:

During an appearance on MSNBC on Sunday, Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) continued her criticism of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for insulting her during a bill mark-up hearing that led to the Georgia Republican yelling across the chamber.

As Crockett saw it, it was apparent she got under Taylor Greene’s skin, telling fill-in host Charles Coleman Jr, “A hit dog hollers.”

Asked by the host what is going on in the House, Crockett doubled down on Taylor Greene’s apparent belief she can say anything and be protected by the GOP leadership from receiving return fire.

“One of the great things about me and the space that I occupy is my district,” Crockett told the host. “I represent for Texas-30. I don’t represent for anybody else — there is only one group of people that elect me. My district is a very diverse district. My district has so many Black women. Beyond that, they have been so supportive, they have allowed me to be who I am. They encouraged me to be who I am because I really am doing and experiencing things that so many other Black women are experiencing but unfortunately, their stories are not highlighted.”
