Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has been under fire for nearly a week after having compared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rule requiring members of the House to wear masks on the chamber floor to the Holocaust.

Appearing Wednesday on the “Dr. Gina Primetime” program, which airs on the Real America’s Voice network, Greene complained that everyone is misrepresenting what she said.

“I had compared it to the horrible way that Jewish people had been treated by having to show their papers,” Greene said.

And in their own condemnation of my remarks, they didn’t even have it right what I had said in the first place.

They were just misstating things I had said, and then also they were just preaching the woke media mob’s talking points.”.

“When I made those statements, I wasn’t even talking about masks per se,” Greene said.

Greene’s defense of her comments is unlikely to succeed given that anyone who hears her original statement knows exactly what she meant:. »
