R ep. Maxine Waters called Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene a "crazy woman" on Sunday as she chastised her Republican colleague for wanting to give Kyle Rittenhouse the Congressional Gold Medal.

The California Democrat tore into Greene, a firebrand from Georgia, during an interview Sunday on MSNBC, days after the GOP congresswoman introduced a bill to bestow the highest honor the legislative branch can give to the teenager fresh off his acquittal of all charges in the killing of two men and injuring of a third during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.

The idea, Waters said, shows how "ridiculous" Greene is, along with GOP lawmakers expressing interest in hiring Rittenhouse as an intern.

"She has no respect for anything or anybody, the Constitution, the Congress of the United States," Waters said of Greene. "So we can expect anything from this crazy woman."

Greene's bill likely won't succeed, as it would need the support of two-thirds of both chambers of Congress, which are controlled by Democrats. Many Democrats expressed disappointment in the "not guilty" verdict, while some Republicans, including Greene, celebrated the teenager's acquittal in the case.

Greene also recently went after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, saying he was responsible for the "failure of our leadership."

During the interview with host Jonathan Capehart, Waters was asked if she believes Greene is the active driver of "menace" on Capitol Hill. She responded by saying Greene is in the leadership of it, as she "outbursts oftentimes." Other conservatives, including Rep. Lauren Boebert , were cited by Waters as contributors to what she views as a hostile environment in the Capitol.

Waters herself has an extensive history of inflammatory and controversial remarks , having made headlines after she urged demonstrators to "get more confrontational" at protests following the death of Daunte Wright.

Maxine needs to be institutionalized and all her wealth turned over to the Treasury. To be evenly divided between the 50 states.
