New York City Mayor Eric Adams attempted to reprimand Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene before to her Tuesday speech in his city in favor of former President Donald Trump.
Instead, he was on the receiving end of a scathing retort from Greene.
Trump is set to appear in New York to face charges handed down by a Manhattan grand jury last week.

“While there may be some rabble-rousers thinking about coming to our city tomorrow, our message is clear and simple: Control yourselves. New York City is our home, not a playground for your misplaced anger,” the mayor said.
“We are the safest large city in America because we respect the rule of law in New York City,” he continued.
“And although we have no specific threats, people like Marjorie Taylor Greene, who is known to spread misinformation and hate speech, she stated she’s coming to town,” Adams said.
“While you’re in town, be on your best behavior,” he said.
Greene said last week that she will travel to New York on Tuesday to protest the indictment of Donald Trump, which was the result of an investigation undertaken by Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg.
Friday, she tweeted, “We MUST protest the unconstitutional WITCH HUNT!”
On Monday, the congresswoman responded to Adams through Twitter, calling out his attempt to “intimidate” her and his assertion that he respects the rule of law.
