On Friday, The New York Times reported that Donald Trump’s brain trust wants anti-Muslim bigot, former failed congressional candidate, and all-around far-right troll Laura Loomer to join his presidential campaign. The report highlights how Loomer has been in attendance at recent Mar-a-Lago functions, has met with the twice-impeached former president, and has the kind of bigoted, inflammatory style the Donald seems to respond to.
The report is also careful to explain that, while Trump has asked for this, Loomer has not yet been officially hired. Loomer told the Times that she wouldn’t be responding to the report “out of respect for President Trump.” She did want to say more, though:
“The president knows I have always been a Trump loyalist, and that I’m committed to helping him win re-election in 2024. He likes me very much. And it’s a shame that he’s surrounded by some people that run to a publication that is notorious for attacking him in order to try to cut me at the knees instead of being loyal to President Trump and respecting their confidentiality agreements.”
Of course, not everyone is happy with this news. Specifically, Georgia bigot Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene responded on Twitter, writing, “Laura Loomer is mentally unstable and a documented liar. She can not be trusted.” But what do you really think, Rep. Greene? Greene added about 500 more words to what she thought. And then Laura Loomer responded. And then even more wretched MAGA right-wingers got into it.
Grab some popcorn!

Greene finished her tweet with, “She spent months lying about me and attacking me just because I supported Kevin McCarthy for Speaker and after I had refused to endorse her last election cycle. She loves alleged FBI informant and confirmed weirdo Nick Fuentes. She tried to get hired on the Ye campaign after the infamous “Maralago” dinner, but Kanye West refused to hire her, so now she’s running to Trump.
“Never hire or do business with a liar,” Greene warns. “Liars are toxic and poisonous to everything they touch. I’ll make sure he knows.”
Then Laura Loomer—who, like Greene, has been allowed back onto Twitter by Elon Musk, despite being given a lifetime ban for misinformation and bigotry—retweeted Greene’s tweet with video showing MTG praising Loomer in the good ol’ racist days of yesteryear. Loomer, like Greene, has an oversized and extra-sensitive “rage” button.
And then, big MAGA liar and kinda lawyer Jenna Ellis responded to Greene’s tweet by writing:
It has been quite the day for hate-filled bigots vying for the ear of disgraced and indicted Donald Trump. As you may recall, Loomer has the distinction of being such an Islamophobe that she was banned from Twitter, Lyft, and Uber. She and Marjorie Taylor Greene made up what was called the “alt-right” for a time, and then the far-right, but what is generally the acute ethnofacist wing of the Republican Party. A few months ago, Loomer and others attacked Greene for being wishy-washy on her support of Donald Trump and all things MAGA when MTG threw her support behind empty vessel Kevin McCarthy for the speakership of the House. At the time, Loomer told Newsweek that “MTG is a snake and she needs to go. That's why I call her Marjorie TRAITOR Greene.”
Anyway—hold the phone! The QAnon cultist who won the Delaware GOP primary for U.S. Senate, Lauren Witzke has jumped in to attack Jenna Ellis, writing:
And then we all enjoyed the alt-right in disarray!
The olden days of 2021, maybe?
Some more memory lane moments.
And possibly my favorite.
