Marjorie Taylor Greene Says Bill Gates Wants Us To Eat Meat Grown In ‘Peach Tree Dish’
“The government totally wants to provide surveillance on every part of your life,” the congresswoman said in a livestream event. “They want to know when you’re eating. They want to know if you’re eating a cheeseburger, which is very bad because Bill Gates wants you to eat his fake meat, which is grown in a peach tree dish.”
She was referring to Gates’ request that rich countries stop eating meat and shift to a synthetic version to cut down on production costs. Her comment about meat in a Petri dish insinuates that the substance is biomedically or genetically engineered.
“So you’ll probably get a little zap inside your body,” she added. “And that’s saying, ‘No no! Don’t eat a real cheeseburger, you need to eat the fake, the fake burger, the fake meat from Bill Gates.’”

.@ChrisLHayes: "Marjorie Taylor Greene, who won her primary by more than 50 points last week, says that Bill Gates wants you to eat artificial meat that was grown in a 'peach tree dish'…It should go without saying, none of what she said is true." https://t.co/TFXYjP4vZu pic.twitter.com/kGDWBfwSWH

The comments drew ridicule from members of both parties.
Greene is known for her on-air blunders. Earlier this year, she mistakenly exchanged “Gestapo,” which refers to secret Nazi police, with “gazpacho,” a delicious Spanish soup made of tomatoes and cucumbers.
