    Marjorie Taylor Greene says NYC earthquake is God telling Americans to 'repent'

    By Madison Hall,

    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., yells during President Joe Bides State of the Union address in the House Chamber of the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, February 7, 2023.
    • A 4.8 magnitude earthquake struck the northeastern US on Friday morning.
    • Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a self-described Christian nationalist, said it's a sign from God.
    • She said Americans need to "repent."

    Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said the New York City earthquake on Friday is a sign the nation needs to "repent."

    An estimated 4.8 magnitude earthquake rattled the northeastern region Friday morning. If accurate, the quake — which had an epicenter about 30 miles west of Newark — would be the third-largest earthquake in recorded New Jersey history.

    Greene, a self-proclaimed Christian nationalist, said the earthquake was God sending a message to Americans.

    "God is sending America strong signs to tell us to repent," she posted to X. "Earthquakes and eclipses and many more things to come. I pray that our country listens."

    Parts of the nation will experience a total solar eclipse on April 8. (And no, the eclipse has nothing to do with the earthquake).

    The House is set to return from a weekslong recess the next day, where Speaker of the House Mike Johnson may push forward long-awaited legislation sending aid to Ukraine.

    Greene filed a " motion to vacate " against Johnson in March, warning that she could act on removing him from leadership if he funds Ukraine's war against Russia. Her GOP colleagues don't seem particularly supportive of her push, especially after how difficult it was to decide on Johnson in late 2023.

    After spending much of 2023 making efforts to be more of a mainstream Republican, it appears Greene is back to her old ways .
