Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., is ready to hit the House floor after the successful election of a new House Speaker, and she’s not afraid to bask in the glow of victory.

The firebrand from Georgia posted a video on social media on Monday morning that featured a collage of video clips within the House and U.S. Capitol, reflecting on the moments leading up to Speaker McCarthy’s victory in the early hours of Saturday morning.

“It’s time to begin…and they can’t stop what’s coming,” Greene wrote on Twitter.

Early Saturday, McCarthy won the gavel at last after 15 rounds of intense voting, clinching the speakership with 216 votes. Six House members voted “present,” which allowed McCarthy to claim victory at a slightly lower threshold than 218.

“Congratulations, Mr. Speaker!” Greene stated on Twitter, along with a selfie taken with the new House leader.

Greene garnered attention during the final, tense hours of voting when she was seen holding up a cell phone with the contact “DT” on the screen, prompting many to speculate that it was President Trump who was on the phone.

“It was the perfect phone call,” Greene quipped of the photo.

Hours before McCarthy’s victory, the congresswoman explained on Twitter, “From the start, I have been upfront, honest, and told everyone exactly what I support and why. I only work for the people and I am thrilled to be on the verge of our GOP conference delivering the America First agenda. Just wait until you see. And this is just the beginning.”

As reported by RSBN, the House reportedly elicited several historic concessions from Speaker McCarthy in his quest to lead Congress. The most notable is the motion to vacate, which would enable any single member of the House, at any time, to make a motion to remove the Speaker if he backtracks on any of his promises.
