GOP Rep.-Elect Marjorie Taylor Greene Makes False Statements About D.C. COVID-19 Restrictions
On Saturday, Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) falsely tweeted that “NOTHING is open” in Washington, D.C. because of “Democrat tyrannical control.” Washington, D.C. is currently in Phase 2 of the transition out fo coronavirus lockdown, and has been in Phase 2 since June 22.
I work out everyday in a CrossFit gym that is open.
Gyms are small businesses that have been devastated by the government mandated shut downs.
In DC, NOTHING is open bc of Democrat tyrannical control.
So here’s my hotel room workout.
We must FULLY reopen! pic.twitter.com/oDsgGyhRvx

Greene, known for her strong support of the QAnon conspiracy theory, was in Washington to speak at the Trump rally, the Million MAGA March, where protestors were demonstrating against Joe Biden’s election, emphasizing President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of an election stolen by Democrats. The Department of Homeland Security officials have contradicted these claims, stating that the election was “the most secure in American history.”
At the “Million MAGA March,” few were seen wearing masks, and Greene herself attacked people wearing masks, calling them “oppressive,” and criticized mask mandates, saying “my body, my choice.”
Our first session of New Member Orientation covered COVID in Congress.
Masks, masks, masks….
I proudly told my freshman class that masks are oppressive.
In GA, we work out, shop, go to restaurants, go to work, and school without masks.
My body, my choice.#FreeYourFace
