Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is trying to make a victimhood buck.

Fresh off of signaling she was unfazed by her meeting with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as she faces mounting calls for her expulsion from Congress, Rep. Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Wednesday attempted to cash in on the backlash — once again playing the victim card.

Deploying the Trumpian tactic of claiming to be singled out by career politicians, Greene blasted out a fundraising email on Wednesday complaining Democrats want her “cancelled from Congress.” She also whined that she doesn’t have the support of the “Establishment wing of the Republican party” — a move she pulled the day before as more Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), decried her past conspiracy-ridden and violent rhetoric that has recently resurfaced.

“Never before has a Republican been under attack like me since the Democrats tried to impeach and remove President Trump from office,” Greene’s fundraising email on Wednesday said. “And without your support, I have no way of defending myself.”

Greene went on to gripe about “Big Tech” banning her from sponsored ads and characterizing the backlash as “nasty smear tactics” before affirming she and her Trumpian rhetoric would not be intimidated.

“I and the America First agenda are not going anywhere!,” Greene’s fundraising email on Wednesday said. “More importantly I need you, the People, to have my back!”

Last week, the QAnon-sympathizer bragged about having a “GREAT call” with Trump in the days leading up to his second impeachment trial for the “incitement of insurrection,” amplifying concerns of the former president’s lingering influence on the GOP.

Greene has also claimed that she will visit Trump “soon.”

“I’m excited to go visit him soon and continue to give him a call and talk to him frequently,” Greene told OANN on Monday. “Great news is, he supports me 100 percent, and I’ve always supported him. President Trump is always here for the people, and he’s not going anywhere. So I look forward to, to joining him and what his future plans may be.”
