Ken Buck Rips 'Moscow Marjorie' Taylor Greene For Sinking To 'New Low'

The former Colorado representative knocked Greene for "acting completely irresponsibly" with her talk on Ukraine.

Former Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) on Friday knocked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for “acting completely irresponsibly” amid her opposition to delivering aid to Ukraine.

Greene has threatened to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) over his support for passing a bill that provides aid to the country in its war against Russia. She’s also shared false claims about the presence of Nazism in Ukraine, echoing some of the talking points embraced by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Buck, who left Congress last month after announcing that he wouldn’t seek another term, used his “Moscow Marjorie” nickname for the Georgia Republican during an interview with CNN’s Erica Hill.

“Well, ‘Moscow Marjorie’ has reached a new low,” Buck said, after Hill showed footage of Russian TV personalities claiming that Greene is “running Congress” and “believes that Americans should help Putin win.”

He added that during the Russian Revolution, “American journalists who were writing glowing reports about Russia at the time” were called ”‘useful idiots,’ and I don’t even think that Marjorie reaches that level of being a ‘useful idiot’ here.”

Buck said that Greene is “mouthing the Russian propaganda” and “really hurting American foreign policy in the process.”

“She’s acting completely irresponsibly,” Buck said. “When history looks at this period of time, Russia invaded Ukraine, Ukraine is fighting for its freedom, and we should be with the freedom fighters in this war.”
