Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was ridiculed on social media Wednesday for wearing a mask that read “CENSORED” even as she delivered nationally televised remarks from the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.
The newly elected congresswoman and QAnon follower has repeatedly refused to wear a facial covering in the past despite all COVID-19 guidelines. She arrived for Wednesday’s impeachment vote wearing the mask, but later shared video of herself walking around and talking without one.
Greene called the push to impeach President Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol that left five people dead a “witch hunt scam.”
The social media reaction to her statement mask was swift:
Wearing a “censored” mask while literally speaking on the floor of the House had the same energy as this tweet. pic.twitter.com/K2OWDFjcPy

Wearing a “censored” mask while speaking on the house floor which is being broadcast live by multiple broadcast and cable news outlets and on the web is something something else.

Tuning into national news to find out who is saying they are censored.

Wearing a mask that says "CENSORED" while you're giving a televized speech on the floor of Congress as a sitting U.S. House member, and a week after you refused to wear a mask while on lockdown, really is something. (This is Marjorie Taylor Greene, of course.)
