Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who was recently stripped of her committee assignments due to her violent rhetoric and support for countless conspiracy theories, continues to embarrass herself online.
On February 8, Greene retweeted an article from The Babylon Bee, a conservative satire site, as if it were fact.

It certainly seemed like Greene was ready to accept yet another falsehood, though this one was created as a joke.

@OutsideBoxBob @mtgreenee It's online it MUST be true.— Jay .... (@Jay ....) 1612797526.0
It should also be noted that the article Greene retweeted, though satirical, was also transphobic and reiterating common misconceptions of transgender issues.

Greene simply can't catch a break. She does the weirdest, dumbest thing at every possible opportunity.

The Georgia Congresswoman seems fundamentally unable to nail down the truth about reality.

Fortunately for Greene, her reputation can hardly sink lower at this point.
@mtgreenee The Babylon Bee is a satire site that only dupes those most likely to believe and spread conspiracy theories.— Jen (@Jen) 1612799605.0
@mtgreenee And people wonder how she fell for conspiracy theories.— Jowana Bueser (eat shit, transphobes) (@Jowana Bueser (eat shit, transphobes)) 1612800924.0
When it comes to elected officials who behave like Marjorie Taylor Greene, it seems Twitter laughs to keep from crying.
