“Chig Bungus” a Twitter cybernaut criticized republican representative Dan Crenshaw for voting in favor of the release of 40 million package aid for Ukraine. Crenshaw responded to him “Yeah because investing in the destruction of our adversary’s military, without losing a single American troop, strikes me as a good idea. You should feel the same.” Chig Bungus, which had less than 150 followers, received 1700 likes, according to Media IT.
This tweet caused controversy and it went viral after the response of another republican representative, Marjorie Taylor Green -who had been involved in Twitter fights with Crenshaw before-. She tweeted:
“So you think we are funding a proxy war with Russia?
You speak as if Ukrainian lives should be thrown away as if they have no value.
Just used and thrown away.
For your proxy war?
How does that help Americans?
Ignoring the serious, denunciative tone of Marjorie Taylor Green, Rep. Crenshaw responded “Still going after that slot on Russia Today huh?. He Implied that Marjorie is a Russian propagandist and wants an appearance on Russian television.
The two GOP representatives have roasted each other on social media before. A few months ago, Crenshaw posted on Instagram that Marjorie was either democrat or stupid.
Earlier this year, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green had her Twitter personal account suspended for violating the “Covid19 misinformation policies”.
