The Hill reports:
Incoming GOP Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) shared a video of herself working out in her hotel room, citing ‘Democrat tyrannical control’ in Washington, D.C.
Greene shared the video on Twitter, and claimed that gyms and small businesses were closed in D.C. Her claim was quickly debunked by journalists and others.
On Friday, Greene tweeted that wearing a face mask was “oppressive” following calls to wear them as part of new member orientation. She herself was seen wearing a face mask.
There is literally a gym around the corner from the hotel she is staying at. https://t.co/lMytXbkz4F

Gyms are open here in D.C., including at least two CrossFit places I know of. https://t.co/XCyUpM8dK5
