Marjorie Taylor Greene: Why she embodies Republicans’ post-Trump dilemma

After just a few weeks in Congress, Marjorie Taylor Greene is doing a really good job getting attention from the backbenches. 

The firebrand Republican is not doing as well at endearing herself to her party’s leadership.

In the past week, liberal groups and media outlets have scrutinised Greene’s past social media activities and unearthed a wealth of inflammatory material, the most recent involving a Parkland shooting victim.

This has forced Republicans, once again, to distance themselves from the businesswoman turned conservative activist turned elected politician.

But it’s what she represents that makes the situation tricky – full-throated, grassroots Trumpism which is confrontational, conspiracy-laden and sometimes tinged with racial overtones.
