WATCH: MTG Completely Debunks Bowman’s Excuse for Fire Alarm Fiasco with Demonstration
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) took to social media to dispute Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s (D-NY) explanation for the fire alarm incident. Greene’s video demonstrates how easy it is to vacate the premises without resorting to pulling a fire alarm. The fire alarm incident at the Cannon Building raised eyebrows, prompting Rep. Greene to challenge Rep. Bowman’s explanation. In her video, Greene provides a brief tour of the building’s exits, highlighting how Congress members and staff are well aware of the accessible doors, even on weekends when certain exits remain locked. She points out a fire alarm near the door, suggesting that someone with Bowman’s background as a former middle school principal should have known better.
Greene asserts that Bowman’s decision to pull the fire alarm was not a mere mistake in his rush to vote but a deliberate act. She argues that he should face consequences for violating the same federal law that is being used to prosecute the January 6th defendants and former President Trump.
At the end of her video, Rep. Greene makes it clear that she believes Rep. Bowman should be held accountable for his actions. The reactions from social media users echo this sentiment, with many calling for his arrest and suggesting that he should face the same charges as the January 6th defendants.
Let me show you how easy it is to exit the Cannon building if doors are closed for the weekend.
No need to pull a fire alarm, you simply have to walk down some steps.
Jamaal Bowman knew what he was doing. He was trying to interrupt the vote.

The consequences for Rep. Bowman could extend beyond legal repercussions. This incident has the potential to damage his reputation and credibility as a lawmaker. It raises questions about his judgment, integrity, and commitment to upholding the law.
Rep. Greene’s video serves as a response to Rep. Bowman’s explanation for the fire alarm incident. By debunking his excuse and highlighting the ease of leaving the building without resorting to pulling the fire alarm, she challenges the narrative presented by Bowman. This response not only aims to hold him accountable but also aims to sway public opinion and shape the narrative surrounding the incident.
The reactions from the public have been clear – they want Rep. Bowman to face consequences for his actions. Social media users have voiced their support for Rep. Greene’s call for his arrest and the subpoenaing of his phone and communications. Many believe that this incident was a coordinated effort to disrupt or delay proceedings, similar to the events of January 6th.
This incident not only has immediate consequences for Rep. Bowman but also carries broader political implications. It adds fuel to the ongoing debates surrounding the January 6th Capitol riot and the subsequent investigations and prosecutions. The comparison between the actions of Rep. Bowman and the January 6th defendants raises questions about double standards and unequal treatment under the law.
