Freshman Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has been the target of widespread criticism and mockery for her seemingly endless stream of conspiracy theories that have emerged once she took office.
In a resurfaced video from 2019, Greene supported the false QAnon-backed conspiracy theory Ruth Bader Ginsburg had been replaced by a body double.

Unhinged conservatives online began claiming Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died but was replaced with a body double by Democrats to deny Donald Trump a Supreme Court appointment.
Of course, RBG passed away in the last month of Donald Trump's term and was replaced by Trump appointee Amy Coney Barrett, revealing the entire theory was bogus (as if there was ever much doubt).

The fact someone who believed this wild and unfounded conspiracy theory is now a Congresswoman disturbed many online.

This most recent resurfaced video of Greene is just the latest in a long line of shocking clips.

@ehananoki @allahpundit it's appaling that she's being allowed to stay, because of the other things she's said.— Katy (@Katy)1611942425.0
A resolution to have Greene removed from the House of Representatives is currently being considered by Congress, though it will need bipartisan support to pass.
Some people online felt the caller who asked about Ginsburg's body double might be a bit confused as well.
@ehananoki @mmfa Not the most important thing here, but did that caller say "Ruth Bader Gingrich"?— TrumpsTaxes (@TrumpsTaxes)1611942913.0
@ehananoki @atrupar RUTH BADER GINGRICH! https://t.co/fbs3kTum4M— Stonks. James Stonks. (@Stonks. James Stonks.)1611947890.0
As Greene develops a reputation for supporting illogical, unhinged conspiracy theories, one can only imagine what clips of her might emerge in the days to come.
