Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) delivered a speech on Thursday in which she acknowledged that QAnon was not real -- but CNN's John Berman on Friday explained why her mea culpa shouldn't be taken seriously.

In particular, Berman zeroed in on Greene's statement that she "was allowed to believe things that weren't true," as though she had no choice but to believe that Hillary Clinton's campaign staffers sacrificed chickens to the pagan deity Moloch.

"That's a master class in deflection," Berman said. "What even is that? I was allowed to drive 115 miles per hour. I was allowed to break and enter into your house and steal all your stuff. I was allowed to lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie -- shame on everyone but me for that! I can't believe you all let me do that! Why did you let me peddle the idea of Jewish space lasers?"

Greene on Thursday night was stripped of her positions on House committees, as 11 Republicans joined with every Democrat in the House to remove her over her past statements supporting the execution of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
