Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) reportedly raked Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who has openly boosted the bonkers “QAnon” conspiracy theory, over the coals in their group text with other freshmen GOP lawmakers on Tuesday.

Axios reports that in the group chat, Mace put Greene on blast for still voting to overturn the election on President Donald Trump’s behalf despite how Trump supporters had invaded the Capitol in response to the President’s lies about the race being “stolen” from him.

“I’m disgusted by what you and other Q-conspiracy theorists did last week in the chamber after all of the violence,” the South Carolina Republican wrote.

Greene told her colleague “don’t believe the fake news,” according to Axios.

Mace reportedly wasn’t having it.

“Literal QAnon lady trying to deny she’s a QAnon lady,” she wrote.

Then-House candidate Greene rose to infamy during the 2020 campaign over her open embrace of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which alleges that Trump is on a secret mission to expose and prosecute a Satanic cabal of pedophiles among Democrats and celebrities.

Greene would attack journalists who brought up her support for the conspiracy theory, at one point calling them “Chinese propagandists.”
