MAGA self-destructs as struggle breaks out between Laura Loomer and Marjorie Taylor Greene

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and potential Trump campaign collaborator Laura Loomer spend Good Friday brawling on Twitter.

Greene tweeted after seeing the news that Trump plans to hire Loomer:

Laura Loomer is mentally unstable and a documented liar.

You can’t be trusted.

She spent months lying about me and attacking me just because I endorsed Kevin McCarthy as speaker and after I refused to endorse her last election cycle.

She loves the alleged FBI…

Loomer replied:

As I said @nytimes a lot of people don’t like me. But many more like me.

Including President Trump.

I was nothing but LOYAL, COMMITTED AND EFFECTIVE to and for President Trump.

All I do and will continue to do is fight for him. Those who attack me have hidden…

Why is @mtgreenee attacking and lying about the person (me) doing all the legwork when it comes to opposition research on @GovRonDeSantis and organizing rallies in support of Trump?

I don’t think I’ve ever seen MTG publicly attack DeSantis.

Really makes you…

Then Ali Alexander jumped into this:

That’s wrong, Marjorie, and now I’m going to embarrass you.

Laura Loomer politely declined an offer to support YE24. She said she supports Trump no matter what.

Also, DU asked to meet Ye. We turned it down after we fired your advisor, Milo.

Speak to Isaiah…

Alexander is currently on Telegram, broadcasting what he calls his smut on Marjorie Taylor Greene.

In case you’re wondering, who are the good guys here?

Good question.

There are no good guys.

Much of the smut discussed on social media shows how Trump’s MAGA is fueled by many of the same elements that denigrate Trump and his people as “swamp.”

There seems to be quite a bit of bad blood behind the scenes. Greene is ambitious and wants national power. She appears to be aiming for the vice presidential seat if Trump wins the Republican nomination.

Both Loomer and Greene support white nationalism. They are both anti-Muslim fanatics and they could be seen as two sides of the same coin as each side fights for a spot in Trump’s front pocket.

These kinds of public feuds are a sign of MAGA crumbling from the inside out. It was never really a movement or an organization. It’s always been a Trump fan club.

The lack of protester participation for Trump was a signal that MAGA could be up and running, and now behind-the-scenes disputes are beginning to become very public.

There’s probably still enough fuel left in MAGA to get Trump the Republican nomination, but it looks like the wheels of Make America Great Again are about to fall off.
