In what can only be described as insane, California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom recently accused a GOP member of Congress of trying to get a fellow representative lynched.
According to Breitbart, Newsom's comments came following an incident earlier this week involving Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and New York Democratic Rep. Jamal Bowman.
Footage of the incident was tweeted out by The Hill reporter Emily Brooks, and it shows a heated exchange between Greene and Bowman following a press gaggle on Capitol Hill with New York Republican Rep. George Santos.
Fox News reported earlier this month that the Department of Justice (DOJ) brought charges against Santos, who was earlier revealed to have fabricated much of his life's story.

Greene later complained that she felt "threatened" by Bowman and described his "physical mannerisms" as being aggressive.
Newsom quickly took to Twitter where he accused Greene of engaging in "blatant racism." The governor also brought up Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African American who was kidnapped and lynched in 1955.

In response, some Twitter users pointed out how Newsom was violating the duty many leftists say they have to believe all women.
Breitbart noted that although Bowman is not seen threatening Greene, he was seen pushing Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas Massie in March while arguing about gun control.

Greene alluded to Bowman's standoff with Massie when discussing her recent confrontation, complaining that the Democrat "he has a history of aggression."
She also referenced an earlier problem with Bowman when both lawmakers appeared in New York City following the indictment of former President Donald Trump.
