Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) dished on her fateful bathroom confrontation with fellow right-wing firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) Wednesday, telling conservative radio host Dana Loesch that she felt her counterpart was being “nasty” during the party’s contentious voting process to elect a House speaker.

“So I actually kind of love that that story came out because of how I was quoted,” she began, referencing The Daily Beast’s exclusive report revealing the Jan 3 spat.

The incident started when Greene confronted Boebert over her reticence to support Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s bid for the gavel. “You were OK taking millions of dollars from McCarthy, but you refuse to vote for him for Speaker, Lauren?” Greene asked Boebert in a ladies restroom in the Capitol, according to a source that spoke with The Daily Beast. (Another source revealed that Boebert was unaware Greene was in a stall ahead of the interaction.)
