Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene can’t seem to say anything right about the COVID-19 pandemic. She went on The Water Cooler program on Real America’s Voice and managed to downplay the seriousness of the virus and the effectiveness of the vaccines all in one breath. Greene argued that hospitals are not being overrun by COVID patients and that rooms could be filled right now because of other illnesses, car accidents, and unrelated things. Greene went on to say “I don’t think the FDA should approve a vaccine that doesn’t seem to be that effective especially with COVID-19 raging all over the country — at least, that’s what the media’s telling us every single day.” Of course, Greene and her followers don’t need to trust the “media” to get the facts about the pandemic and they could just look up the rates of infections, hospitalizations, and deaths on their own. So too could they look at studies proving that the vaccines are highly effective at preventing serious cases of COVID. However, Greene and her supporters are committed to this narrative and there is next to no chance they would get persuaded by the evidence. No matter how bad the situation gets in the United States, Marjorie Taylor Greene will continue to claim everything is a conspiracy theory and that she and other freedom-loving Americans are somehow the true victims in all of this.
