Far-right Republican lawmakers Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert nearly came to blows during a House Freedom Caucus board of directors meeting last month, Politico reports.
According to the report, Boebert and Greene are “not quite buddy-buddy” in the GOP conference as they appear to be in public.
Republican lawmakers anonymously told the outlet that Boebert hates being associated with Greene and is also viewed as more of a team player than her Georgia colleague.
The pair recently engaged in a tense confrontation over Greene’s attendance at a white nationalist conference organized by Nick Fuentes in February.
Greene was criticized by some Republicans for her attendance at the event. But, things between her and Boebert got so heated that at least one onlooker feared that it might have escalated beyond the “verbal cage match” if another board member had not stepped in to de-escalate.
Three people close to the House Freedom Caucus confirmed the back-and-forth took place.
The confrontation reportedly took place one day before Greene and Boebert teamed up to heckle President Joe Biden during his State of the Union address.
