Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene told Emily Maitlis to ‘f*** off’ after the British journalist questioned her over the conspiracy claim that Jewish space lasers started the California wildfires.

The former BBC presenter took aim at the Republican Congresswoman at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago headquarters on Super Tuesday after the former president swept through in all but one state.

Maitlis, who now fronts The News Agents Podcast, first asked Greene, 49, what message the GOP had for Trump challenger Nikki Haley following Tuesday’s results and who the former president should choose as his running mate.

She then – in an apparent bid to rile the Congresswoman up – slipped into a clearly controversial question, probing Greene about the ‘Jewish space lasers’ conspiracy from six years ago.

Maitlis asked, ‘Can you tell me why so many people that support love conspiracy theories, including yourself?’ But Greene hit back and accused Maitlis and the mainstream media of ‘spreading conspiracy theories’, before telling her to ‘f*** off’.

The anchor-turned-podcaster is known for grilling high-profile figures, most famously Prince Andrew, whose hour-long Newsnight interview with Maitlis in part led to his withdraw from public life and having his Royal titles removed.

Maitlis hosts her News Agents show alongside Jon Sopel, another ex-BBC presenter and the broadcaster’s former North America editor, who has described the Trump presidency as the ‘Wild West’.

Maitlis stopped Greene on Tuesday after Trump clinched victories in 14 out of 15 state primaries.

The former TV news presenter asked the Georgia Republican what the ‘message should be to Nikki Haley tonight’.

Greene answered: ‘We’ve been encouraging her to drop out and support President Trump and I think tonight is the clear message that President Trump is the clear front runner. He’s the winner in our Republican primary and it’s time for Nikki Haley to drop out and support him.’

It has since emerged that Haley will surrender to Trump in a speech on Wednesday morning, guaranteeing a rematch between President Joe Biden and Trump in November.

Maitlis also asked if Trump was ‘closer to picking his VP’ and if Greene ‘should be on that list’.

‘That’s the question everyone asks and no, I don’t think Nikki Haley should be on the list. But of course President Trump will choose who he wants for VP,’ Greene said.

Maitlis doubled down, asking again: ‘Would you like to be on that list?’

Greene told her that Trump has a ‘long list’ and that she would support Trump in ‘any way he’d ask me’, but added: ‘I can assure you, it won’t be Nikki Haley.’

The journalist then asked Greene why there were so many apparent conspiracy theorists in Trump’s party, claiming the congresswoman as among their ranks.

‘Well, let me tell you, you’re a conspiracy theorist and the left and the media spreads more conspiracy theories. We like “the truth.” We like supporting our Constitution, our freedoms and America first,’ Greene replied as she tried to walk away.

But Maitlis interrupted, asking: ‘What about Jewish space lasers? Tell us about Jewish space lasers.’

Greene, repeatedly said ‘we’re all done here’ as she tried to stop the interview, before adding: ‘Why don’t you go talk about Jewish space lasers and why don’t you go f*** off?’ 

Maitlis appeared pious and was seemingly gloating after the goad, offering a little smile to the camera as Greene stormed off.

The Camp Fire in California in November 2018 killed 85 people and was caused by faulty Pacific Gas and Electric Company equipment. Greene connected PG&E to a company she claimed made space lasers and also to the former Democratic governor of California

Greene, seemingly frustrated by the line of questioning, argued 'we like the truth' and accused Maitlis, the left and the media of 'spreading more conspiracy theories' than Trump's supporters. Maitlis hit back, asking 'what about Jewish space lasers?', but Greene shut down the conversation by tell her to 'go talk about Jewish space lasers and to 'go f*** off'

Maitlis was in the US on Tuesday reporting for her daily podcast The News Agents, which she hosts with Lewis Goodall and Sopel, both of whom previously worked for BBC.

Sopel and the former president even shared a heated back-and-forth at a White House press conference while Trump held office.

Trump referred to Sopel as ‘another beauty’ in a February 2017 press conference, after asking the then-BBC North America editor which organization he was from.

Sopel responded by saying ‘It’s a good line’, before adding: ‘Impartial, free and fair’.

WHAT DID MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE SAY ABOUT CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES? 

Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote on Facebook in 2018 that she believed California’s deadliest wildfire was potentially caused by space lasers that were connected to the Rothschilds and former Gov. Jerry Brown to clear the way for a high-speed rail system. 

The post detailed her views on how the devastating Camp Fire got started, which killed 85 people, saying, ‘there are too many coincidences to ignore.’

Greene tried to connect the Pacific Gas and Electric Company – whose faulty equipment did start the blaze – through one of its board members to Rothschild Inc., in an anti-Semitic dog whistle.

She laid out connections between Brown and PG&E, suggesting financial contributions the energy company made to the Democratic governor ensured its protection. 

She alleged that the fire may have been purposely set to clear the way for a railroad project Brown supported. 

Greene also brought in the name of another prominent California Democrat, that of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, suggesting she may also be involved as her husband, Richard Blum, had invested in the rail project. 

The cause of the fire isn’t a mystery as PG&E pleaded guilty of being responsible and agreed to pay out more than $25billion in damages.

Earlier this year, while appearing on LBC’s Nick Ferrari at Breakfast after Trump’s victory in the New Hampshire primary, Sopel also stated that America ‘can do better’ than Trump or Biden for president.

He likened the pair facing off in the race for the White House to ‘two old men fighting over a Zimmer frame’. 

Maitlis took aim at Greene over a since-deleted Facebook post from November 2018 in which she said she believed California’s deadliest wildfire was potentially caused by space lasers that were connected to the Rothschilds and former Gov. Jerry Brown to clear the way for a high-speed rail system.

The post detailed her views on how the devastating Camp Fire got started, which killed 85 people, saying, ‘there are too many coincidences to ignore.’

Greene tried to connect the Pacific Gas and Electric Company – whose faulty equipment did start the blaze – through one of its board members to Rothschild Inc., in an anti-Semitic dog whistle. 

The cause of the fire isn’t a mystery as PG&E pleaded guilty of being responsible and agreed to pay out more than $25billion in damages. 

Greene, in her Facebook post, laid out connections between Brown and PG&E, suggesting financial contributions the energy company made to the Democratic governor ensured its protection. 

In reality, Brown was handing back donations from PG&E officials since 2014, years before the deadly Camp Fire.  

In a bit of tit-for-tat, Greene also alleged that the fire may have been purposely set to clear the way for a railroad project Brown supported.  

‘It also must just be a coincidence that the fires are burning in the same projected areas that the $77 billion Dollar High Speed Rail Project is to be built, which also happens to be Gov Brown’s pet project,’ Greene wrote.  

Greene brought in the name of another prominent California Democrat, that of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, suggesting she may also be involved as her husband, Richard Blum, had invested in the rail project. 

In 2013, Feinstein denied that her husband had any ties to the project.

‘Geez with that much money, we could build 3 US southern border walls,’ Greene commented.  

The freshman congresswoman noted that some eyewitnesses of the Camp Fire ‘saw what looked like lasers or blue beams of light causing the fires.’ 

She pointed to a partnership between PG&E and the start-up Solaren to purchase solar energy collected from satellites and sent to the ground, which she referred to as ‘space solar generators.’ 

‘If they are beaming the sun’s energy back to Earth, I’m sure they wouldn’t ever miss a transmitter right??!!’ the future congresswoman wrote. 

‘I mean mistakes are never made when anything new is invented. What would that look like anyway? A laser beam or light beam coming down to Earth I guess. Could that cause a fire? Hmmm, I don’t know. I hope not!’ she continued.  

‘That wouldn’t look so good for PG&E, Rothschild Inc, Solaren or Jerry Brown who sure does seem fond of PG&E,’ Greene added. 

Greene finished the post, ‘But what do I know? I just like to read a lot.’ 

A spokesperson for Solaren told DailyMail.com at the time: ‘Since we don’t have any solar generators in space the story has no basis in fact.’

A die-hard supporter of Trump, Greene has a long history of incendiary social media posts – including ones in which she expressed racist views and support for QAnon conspiracy theories, which focus on the debunked belief that top Democrats are involved in child sex trafficking, Satan worship and cannibalism. 

Greene has also spread false claims about the integrity of the 2020 presidential election – repeating Trump’s baseless allegations of fraud – and railed against public health requirements implemented to slow the spread of the coronavirus. 

Some of her comments regarding mass shootings at schools in Newtown, Connecticut, and Parkland, Florida led her to lose her committee positions when Democrats still controlled the House. 

Still, she earned back seats at the table when Republicans won a majority in the 2022 midterms, and Kevin McCarthy became House Speaker. 

Reports also surfaced social media activity where Greene showed support for Facebook posts that advocated violence against Democrats and the FBI, including posts that called for the death of Nancy Pelosi and former President Barack Obama.

The congresswoman, frequently referred to by her initials MTG, has linked the Democrats to the Nazis and pushed the discredited Pizzagate conspiracy that Democrat officials were connected to a human trafficking and child sex ring. 

She also asserted the QAnon conspiracy that ‘America is run by pedophiles and Satan-worshippers running a global child sex-trafficking operation and that former President Trump is the only person who can stop them.’

Maitlis likely feels no regret over her interaction with Greene, as she has previously said she remains ‘proud’ of the infamous 2019 Newsnight interview that in part ended the Duke of York’s career. 

Last year, Maitlis said she never set out to destroy his Royal standing or career future with their interview, but added that she remains ‘proud’ of it.

The TV host said she felt Andrew decided to push forward with a chat to aid his daughters’ long term reputation amid his friendship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and allegations of his own sex abuse, which he has always denied.

The popular presenter and journalist confided that she felt her ‘cross examination’ could prove to be essential evidence in a potential criminal or civil trial for the former Duke Of York.

While PR experts and Royal insiders declared the ‘interview of a lifetime’ a career ending disaster, Maitlis also defended Andrew’s efforts to speak about the scandal.

Maitlis’ interview with Andrew will be depicted in Netflix’s highly-awaited film Scoop.

Award-winning actress Gillian Anderson, 55, is playing the former BBC presenter in the dramatization, adapted from Sam McAlister’s book.

But Maitlis, 53, refused to meet with Anderson in the lead up to filming as she is working on her own project based on the sensational televised interview, Grazia reports.

Instead, The Crown actress spent her time trawling through footage of Maitlis, listening to her The News Agents podcast and reading her autobiography Airhead.

TAYLOR GREENE’S BIZARRE CLAIMS

  • The California Camp Fire which killed at least 85 was caused by a space laser linked to the Rothschilds and the state’s high-speed rail. PG&E admitted it was caused by a faulty power line and went into bankruptcy to fund a $13.5bn settlement and pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
  • Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin cut off a child’s face while she was alive, Clinton wore it as a mask so the terrified child would produce ‘adrenachrome’ and then organized the killing of a cop who knew about it.
  • The Las Vegas massacre was organized by Democrats to help them ban guns and shooter Stephen Paddock was not a lone wolf.
  • There’s no evidence of a plane hitting the Pentagon on 9/11.
  • The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre which cost the lives of 17 students was a ‘false flag planned shooting.’
  • I am told that Nancy Pelosi tells Hillary Clinton several times a month that ‘we need another school shooting’ in order to persuade the public to want strict gun control.’
  • Seth Rich leaked Hillary Clinton’s emails and was murdered in revenge by her aide John Podesta because the emails revealed that a D.C. pizza restaurant had a child-smuggling operation in its basement. It does not even have a basement.
  • The world is run by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles and the Q in QAnon exists and is the ‘best chance to take them out.’
  • Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett are Muslims. 
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg was replaced by a body double. 
  • She wasn’t the person who posted a call to assassinate Nancy Pelosi to her own Facebook page.

Meanwhile, Trump and President Joe Biden romped coast-to-coast on Super Tuesday, all but cementing a November rematch and increasing pressure on Haley to leave the Republican race. 

The counts in 15 states and a US territory had not even finished on Tuesday evening but the message was clear: The Trump versus Biden rematch is already under way. 

Trump, 77, and Biden,  81, trained their fire on each other as the race drew to a close. They barely paused to count their wins before taking aim.

‘November 5th is going to go down as the single most important day in the history of our country,’ said Trump in the glittering ballroom of his Mar-a-Lago club.

Biden laid out a similarly stark choice.

‘Tonight’s results leave the American people with a clear choice: Are we going to keep moving forward or will we allow Donald Trump to drag us backwards into the chaos, division, and darkness that defined his term in office?’ he said.

Similarly, Trump said November 5 would be the most important day in American history as he promised to rebuild America after what he said was three years of decline under Biden.

Under the chandeliers and gilt ceilings in the ballroom of his palatial Mar-a-Lago home, the former President was feted by family and would-be courtiers as he moved ever closer to clinching the Republican presidential nomination.

The audience at the Florida residence-turned-private-club was rapt as the former president took the stage, with Trump focused on his impending coronation as the man to take on Biden in November’s general election.

‘This is an incredible group of people,’ he told the crowd of supporters, donors and party officials. ‘We have some tremendously talented people in this room, including political people that have helped me right from the beginning.’

Trump said there had ‘never been anything so conclusive’ as the primary results.

Trump did not even mention his challenger’s name (in contrast to his victory speech in New Hampshire when he railed against her) instead continuing his pivot to the presidential election and launching fresh salvoes on Biden. 

‘November 5 is going to go down as the single most important day in the history of our country,’ he said about the presidential election.

‘We’re not respected right now our country is known as a joke. It’s a joke. 

‘Other leaders … can’t believe what happened to us because three years ago we were the most respected country anywhere in the world by far.’ 

He went on to attack Biden over the US-Mexico border and the country’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Biden and Trump each won California, Texas, Alabama, Colorado, Maine, Oklahoma, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Minnesota and Massachusetts.

Biden also won the Democratic primaries in Utah, Vermont and Iowa.

Haley won Vermont, denying Trump a full sweep, but the former president carried other states that might have been favorable to her such as Virginia, Massachusetts and Maine, which have large swathes of moderate voters like those who have backed her in previous primaries.

The former UN Ambassador and South Carolina governor will finally surrender to Trump in a speech on Wednesday morning delivered from her home state, reports The Wall Street Journal.

In her speech, Haley will not endorse Trump but will encourage him to ‘earn the support of Republican and independent voters who backed her,’ according to the report.

On Tuesday, Haley told Fox & Friends: ‘I haven’t heard him pledge to me that he would support me if I won, so I don’t know why I have to go and pledge to him that I would support him.’ 

Haley will also speak Wednesday about conservative values, such as an active foreign policy, as opposed to MAGA isolationism and tighter government spending.  

Her campaign made history as she became the first Republican woman to win two primaries, in Vermont and the District of Columbia, thus preventing a total blowout.
