Former President Donald Trump, according to Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, is following in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela and Jesus Christ as he awaits to be prosecuted on criminal charges. Trump, according to Greene, joins a few of the greatest people in history by being detained today.

The Georgia senator made the comparison during a conversation with Right Side Broadcasting Network from the back seat of an SUV on Tuesday while she was preparing for Trump to be booked and brought before a judge in New York City.

MTG said, “President Trump is joining some of the most incredible people in history in being arrested today. Nelson Mandela was arrested and served time in prison. Jesus was arrested and murdered by the Roman government. There have been many people throughout history that have been arrested and persecuted by radical, corrupt governments, and it’s beginning today in New York City, and I just can’t believe it’s happening, but I’ll always support him. He’s done nothing wrong.”

Soon after, the former President arrived at the site, and she compared Donald Trump to Jesus but said that instead of walking on water, he chose to arrive in a large motorcade.

The Republican congresswoman’s plan to rally outside the Manhattan Supreme Court earlier today entirely crumbled after she was surrounded by anti-Trump demonstrators who forcefully heckled her. Whistlers and drum protesters who were protesting against Trump completely washed out the Georgia Republican lawmaker’s message. Greene ultimately spent a short amount of time at the location before leaving the area.

Mayor Eric Adams had something to say to Greene before she got to the gathering. “People like Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is known to spread misinformation and hate speech, while you’re in town, be on your best behavior,” Adams said during a press conference Monday. “Control yourselves. New York City is our home, not a playground for your misplaced anger.”
