“Why the hell is 60 Minutes going to give a platform to the hateful bigotry of Marjorie Taylor Greene? She will sit down with Lesley Stahl this Sunday on 60 Minutes to spout lies and hate I’m sure. This tweet is from this morning where she calls Stormy Daniels “old and…” one Twitter user said along with a screenshot of a tweet where MTG called Daniels disgusting.
“@60Minutes, this is the real Marjorie Taylor Greene. A lying, bigoted, sociopath. This is the real version person you just interviewed. When your ratings drop, I hope you will ask yourselves was it worth it?” another one added.

“Are You planning on watching Marjorie Traitor Greene appear on “60 Minutes” Sunday night? We have the option to get #Boycott60Minutes trending by Retweeting. [Perhaps, Leslie Stahl will ask her if she’s the “pipe bomber”? To which Greene will answer, “I don’t remember”. 😆],” a third one said on Twitter.
