Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is writing an autobiography, the Washington Examiner reported Wednesday. The book, titled simply “MTG” after her initials, is set to arrive on November 21.
Per the Examiner, Greene is “getting ready to settle some scores with an autobiography that could pave the way to higher office — including the vice presidency.”
Greene is building up to the book being a bombshell read, but also a narrative about how she wants to be seen.
“I’m always controversial, but I think this book might be a little controversial with some of the stories,” Greene told the news outlet, adding that the book will “introduce myself to America as me, not the character that the mainstream media created and has sold to America over the past few years.”
Greene also gave some clues about whether she plans to pursue higher office.
“I have options. Anything from a governor’s race to a Senate seat,” she told the Examiner. She added “I’m not sure who Trump will pick for a VP. I haven’t closed the door on anything.”
Georgia’s next open Senate and gubernatorial races aren’t until 2026, so Greene would have to wait a while to pursue either in her home state.
Earlier this month, Rolling Stone reported that Greene and another Trump loyalist, losing Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, were in a “death race” over who will be chosen as Trump’s vice presidential running mate for the 2024 election. However, that story did describe the chances of either of them actually landing on the ticket as “vanishingly low.” The same story also floated that Trump might want to put Greene in the Justice Department in a second term, although one loyalist was quoted as saying “I don’t think she’s a lawyer” (Greene is not, in fact, a lawyer.)
The Greene book is being published by Winning Team Publishing, a Trump-associated outfit and presumably the only book publisher whose website greets visitors with an offer of a Trump hat. It’s the same book publisher that offers signed copies of the former president’s recent book “Letters to Trump,” including a $199 edition signed not by Trump himself but rather by his son Donald Trump, Jr.
That’s not the only new book that references the Georgia Congresswoman.
A new book called “Jewish Space Lasers: The Rothschilds and 200 Years of Conspiracy Theories,” takes a look at Jewish-related conspiracy theories of the past, including those involving the Rothschild family, and it takes its title from Greene’s infamous 2018 Facebook post in which she speculated that California wildfires that year had been caused by “space solar generators” operated by the Rothschild family. The author of the book, unrelated to the family, is Mike Rothschild.
Greene told the Examiner that she plans to address the origins of the “Jewish space lasers” claim — though she never actually used that phrase — in the book.
Also this week, Greene expressed disagreement with the recent decision by the United States Senate to relax its dress code for senators, which was seen as a concession to Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA), who favors hoodies and sometimes shorts.
“The Senate no longer enforcing a dress code for Senators to appease Fetterman is disgraceful,” Greene said on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “Dress code is one of society’s standards that set etiquette and respect for our institutions. Stop lowering the bar!”
The message led to a great deal of pushback against Greene, who has certainly never at any point in her public career been associated with decorum. High points include her fight with Lauren Boebert on the floor of the House to the time earlier this year when she showed a nude photo of Hunter Biden during a House hearing.
“Thankfully, the nation’s lower chamber lives by a higher code of conduct: displaying ding-a-ling pics in public hearings,” Fetterman’s own X account said while quoting Greene’s.
