Georgia Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene was criticized after she took to X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, to motivate people to work out "whether you feel like it or want to or not."
Greene said working out is "work" and advised her followers that if they commit to a proper workout routine, then "the results will show up too."
You can see her post below.
On the surface, there was nothing wrong with Greene's message—she is known for loving CrossFit and worked as a coach before running for Congress—but her critics turned it right around on her.
Many wondered why she wasn't channeling that same dedication into actually legislating rather than spreading baseless conspiracy theories.
True to form, Greene has been very busy not legislating at all.
Recently, she faced significant criticism after she fell for a fake video of an outraged "mom" supposedly tearing down a classroom's Pride flag. An X Community Note clarified that the video "was made by an independent production crew known for provocative classroom scenes with recurring actors and sets" to elicit outrage with the goal of increasing internet traffic, online engagement, revenue, and support.
Greene later insisted it didn't matter if the video was fake or not, telling her followers that its anti-LGBTQ+ scenario is "a very good representation of exactly how people feel."
Greene has also used her time in Congress this week to complain about Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's decision to relax Senate dress code rules, a development she saw fit to blame on Pennsylvania Democratic Senator John Fetterman, who frequently opts for shorts paired with a dark collared short-sleeved shirt or a hoodie when moving about the Capitol.
Schumer never attributed the change to any single Senator but that did not stop Greene from declaring the Senate is "disgraceful" for "no longer enforcing a dress code for Senators to appease Fetterman."
