In this episode, Cheryl Smith, Brigitte Jones and Julia Dudley Najieb talk in-depth about the purposeful insults that started from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), as she was the catalyst to the angry exchange between her and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14) and her and Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-Texas). The insulting incidents happened Thursday night, May 16, 2024 during a chaotic House Oversight Committee meeting where members were supposed to be addressing a contempt of Congress resolution against Attorney General Merrick Garland that was advanced by a party-line vote. The hearing seem to veer off topic several times due to the insulting comments and crazy theatrics by members of opposite parties; however, members of the party behaving badly happened to be of the Republican Party.

From not following rules of the committee, to bringing up irrelevant topics, the messy committee hearing was far from a democratic process of what the American public would expect from their representatives.
