Feels tempest in a teapot to me. More “OM(eh)G”. Neither clear cut nor ergregious.

(From the OP link)
In the 2:54 minute clip, Pecora appears to have walked in front of Greene to ask, "How does the second amendment prevent gun violence?" while filming the congresswoman's reaction.

Greene responded, "Excuse me, out of the way, excuse me," to which Pecora begins to stumble and said, "Oh my God." Later, Pecora moves out of the way and accuses the congresswoman of kicking her.

The video does not directly show physical contact between Pecora and Greene.


The relevant segment -




I will say the audio with the original video does show the doofus to Greene’s left to be an officious dolt; “You’re blocking a member of Congress… You don’t block a member of Congress.”

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

The girl was walking directly in front and slowed down. She got her heel stepped on. I'll give MTG a pass

I saw it with more context and sound - that woman was being really annoying and then got in front and slowed down (all while being quite rude - not that I would have done any better). And then she jumps on twitter and claims MTG kicked her playing victim.

Give me a @#$%& break!

That's what I saw, as well as it could be seen.

I hate the idea that MTG should get a pass, but it doesn't look at all like she kicked the complainant.

She didn't slow her stride, and the complainant didn't get out of the way after the first misstep.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Can't we all just agree that had MTG been placed in the Fargo Wood Chipper when she first deserved it, this incident woulda been moot?

Moments after this video was shot, Ms Pecora went to the ER to receive her first round of rabies shots - as a precaution.

I saw a totally different video and watched it about five times. To me it looked like tripping on a sidewalk crack, or as mentioned above accidentally stepping on her heel. In no way does it look like a kick.

I hate to see us reduced to the level of the MAGAs who comb the internet searching for snippets that can be cut to make it appear Biden is senile.
