South Carolina Republican Rep. Nancy Mace reportedly told “Fox & Friends” Friday that it was “no surprise” to her that far-left politicians like as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used racism as an excuse to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar from the committee after “Squad” members blasted Republicans over the decision.
“I would say that was complete drama queens on full display. And there’s no surprise there that they would use racism as an excuse. They weren’t there two years ago when Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar were being kicked off. They weren’t using that as an excuse. And it’s really unbelievable. But it’s very typical of the ‘Squad’ to see that kind of behavior on the floor.” Mace said during her appearance.
Mace is known for being the first female graduate of The Citadel, a military college in South Carolina.
She is also a former state representative and is currently serving as a member of the United States House of Representatives from South Carolina’s 1st congressional district.
In 2020, Mace announced her candidacy for the United States House of Representatives in South Carolina’s 1st congressional district.
Mace defeated incumbent Joe Cunningham in the election and took office in January 2021 as a member of the 117th Congress.
Mace has been a vocal critic of both the current administration and forces that she believes are radical on both the left and the right.
