Controversial Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene of Georgia has her fair share of supporters and detractors within her own party. But many prominent voices within conservative media  have rushed to defend her amid a Democratic push to have her expelled from The House of Representatives for “having embraced conspiracy theories, including that school shootings and 9/11 were staged”, according to the BBC.

While Tucker Carlson defended Greene on his show Monday, Greene herself was a guest with Todd Starnes on Tuesday to tell her side of the story. That ultimately led Starnes, a Conservative, to call the top Republican in Congress, Mitch McConnell ,“sleazy” and “a dirt bag”, highlighting the growing rift in the Republican Party.

“Marjorie Taylor-Greene is the most hated person in Washington and I honestly don’t know why,” Starnes said. “I suspect the reason they hate her so much is that she supports Donald Trump.”

In the interview Greene defended herself against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s implication that she is a cancer in the Republican Party.

“The cancer within the party is not me, but it is those Republicans who lose gracefully without standing up and fighting. Republicans have caved for years now…It’s because of weak Republicans that America is being overrun by Socialists and the Democratic Party.”

Starnes responds by calling McConnell “sleazy” and a “dirt bag”, while asking Greene to dispel the lies spread about her in the media.

“What he (McConnell) is doing is just trying to earn street cred with the Left and it’s despicable,” he said. “Big media is spreading lies about you. What are some of them?” While not addressing the media stories directly because of pending lawsuits, Greene did offer a general statement.

“The media is using other people’s comments and attributing them to me and it goes back to some social media posts from 2018,” Greene said. “I have no idea what they are talking about and I have nothing to apologize for. I don’t have to answer to MSNBC, CNN or any other member of the media. All I have to do is represent the people in my district to the best of my ability. That’s what I was elected to do.”

Starnes closes the interview by asking Greene if she has any regrets for any of the things she has said or posted on social media, many of which Starnes admits he does not agree with.

“I don’t agree with everything you say or post,” he said. “But who cares? It’s your Constitutional right to say them and now Democrats and Republicans are coming after you. Do you regret anything you have said or posted?”

“I regret a lot of things in my life,” Greene said. “I’ve done a lot of good things and I’ve done a lot of bad things. That’s why I’m so grateful I am a Christian and have the grace of God.”

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.
