Incoming Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on Friday drew swift ridicule when she lashed out at being asked to wear a face mask during her congressional orientation.
"Our first session of New Member Orientation covered COVID in Congress," she wrote on Twitter. "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."
Greene has a long history of peddling deranged conspiracy theories.
In addition to being a believer in QAnon, which states that President Donald Trump is working in secret to uncover a global Satanic pedophile ring, Greene has also questioned whether an airplane actually crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11 and whether the 2017 mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas was a "false flag" operation.
Given this, Greene's rant about face masks was met with instant mockery -- check out some reactions below.
