Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was mocked on Monday after she shared a transphobic article from a satirical news website.
In a Monday morning tweet, Greene included a link from "The Babylon Bee," which bills itself as "fake news you can trust."
The article seemed intended to smear transgender athletes.
"High School Runner Not Feeling Great About Her Chances Against The Girl With The Beard," the headline stated.
Greene added a remark: "Gee, I wonder why?"
Commenters quickly pointed out that Greene had embarrassed herself by sharing a parody news article.
"LMAO. You are so good at constantly owning yourself," one commenter wrote. "It's the gift that keeps on giving."

Why are you citing the Babylon Bee? You know it's a satire, right? Oh wait... I forgot who I was talking to. pic.twitter.com/8skKDCBp7z
