MTG Called Out For Epic Self-Own After Hilariously Oblivious Rant About 'Meddling' In Elections

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene got mocked by internet users for an oblivious floor speech where she seemed to be attacking herself.

Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene was mocked profusely after she gave an oblivious floor speech about the sanctity of democracy and abuse of power in which she seemed to be attacking herself.

Greene, one of 147 Republicans who voted to overturn the 2020 election, issued her remarks after proposing an amendment to reduce the salary of U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Samantha Power to $1, citing her involvement with diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives.

She said the following with no sense of irony whatsoever:

“A person who abuses her position in government to meddle in democratic elections should be nowhere near public office."

You can hear what she said in the video below.

Greene has continued to promote former President Donald Trump's falsehoods about the integrity of the 2020 election and backed those who attacked the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021 on the false premise the election was stolen.

The violence that erupted that day resulted in over 100 injuries to law enforcement and millions of dollars in damages, a reality Greene has continued to outright deny.

Moreover, the extent of her alleged involvement in the insurrection appeared to become clearer following a bombshell report from Rolling Stone.

In October 2021, Rolling Stone published an article stating several Trump supporters who helped plan the insurrection had multiple planning sessions with senior White House staffers and Republican members of Congress.

Sources who spoke to the magazine said they met with several high-profile Trump acolytes, including Representatives Paul Gosar of Arizona, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, as well as Greene herself.

Greene was swiftly called out for her absolute hypocrisy and self-own.

Greene has a long history of downplaying the severity of the January 6 insurrection and backing those who participated in the attack.

In June 2022, Greene claimed ahead of a vote on a gun control measure that the committee and the federal government at large had "fragrantly" violated the rights of January 6 defendants who've been detained pre-trial, which made it sound as if these violations had a pleasant or sweet smell, a gaffe that did not go unnoticed.

Greene has made headlines in the past for visiting insurrectionists in jail, once telling Steve Bannon, former President Trump's ex-chief strategist, that the prisoners draw pictures of the American flag and sing the national anthem every evening while crying.

Greene has described the conditions in the jail as "deplorable" and claimed that unhoused people and Guantanamo Bay detainees enjoy better living conditions.

In November 2021, she said she had "never seen human suffering like I witnessed last night" after she was granted access to enter the D.C. Department of Corrections after months of trying.
