QUOTE OF THE DAY: MTG Tells Mayor Pete and His Husband to ‘Stay Out of Girl’s Bathrooms’

At a rally for Donald Trump in Commerce, Georgia on Saturday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told United States Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg and his husband to “stay out of our girl’s bathrooms.”

THE QUOTE

“You know what? Pete Buttigieg can take his electric vehicles and his bicycles, and he and his husband can stay out of our girl’s bathrooms,” Greene said at the rally.
