Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has suggested that the U.S. should undergo a “national divorce,” but Utah Gov. Spencer Cox, who is also a Republican, has decried Green’s suggestion as “evil.”
“We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done,” Greene tweeted.
Cox denounced the congresswoman’s words and continued on with the metaphor by suggesting that the country needs “marriage counseling.”
“This rhetoric is destructive and wrong and—honestly—evil. We don’t need a divorce, we need marriage counseling. And we need elected leaders that don’t profit by tearing us apart. We can disagree without hate. Healthy conflict was critical to our nation’s founding and survival,” Cox wrote.
