The most important news
In her first year as a House member, Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene has said a lot of outrageous things. But on Thursday, she said something even Steve Bannon might have found it hard to believe.
Greene, who said she believed in the QAnon conspiracy theory but not the effectiveness of vaccines, was interviewed on Bannon’s “Real America’s Voice” podcast when she told former Trump White House strategist, “I was the most effective member of Congress this session.”
She said it was because of her insistence on recorded votes on every question in the House, so it’s clear where each member stands.
Greene, however, has not been able to do much congressional work since February, when she was stripped of her committee duties due to her support for racist and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and for advocating l execution of prominent Democrats.
As you can see from this Twitter clip, it looks like Bannon took a little peek at Greene’s self-praise.
The full video shows Bannon did not dispute Greene’s questionable claim. Instead, he asked her to explain how roll-call votes work.
Still, people on Twitter couldn’t help but notice the expression on Bannon’s face to the point that “even Bannon” became a trending term on Twitter on Friday.
One person put Greene’s comment in a very sad perspective.
