Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.) got into a shouting match outside the Capitol on Wednesday. The two yelled until Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) stepped in to defuse the situation with a shot at Greene.
“She ain’t worth it, bro,” Ocasio-Cortez said, tapping Bowman on the shoulder. “She ain’t worth it, bro.”
The moment was captured from different angles by reporters for CNN and The Daily Beast:

Santos last week was charged with multiple counts of fraud and money laundering. He has pleaded not guilty. Santos ― already the subject of bipartisan calls to resign over his extensive lies ― faced renewed calls to step down after his arrest.
“Kick him out!” Bowman yelled from the steps, telling Santos to “have some dignity” and “resign.”
“You gotta go,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
Santos called Bowman “deranged.”
Greene’s contribution to the debate with Bowman: “Impeach Biden.”
