The Hill reports:
Controversial Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Friday tweeted that masks used to prevent the spread of the coronavirus are “oppressive” and that people should free their faces. Greene criticized calls to wear masks that were a part of the new member orientation, though the new lawmaker also was photographed wearing a mask.
After winning her primary, she later attempted to distance herself from the conspiracy theory, telling Fox News in August that she doesn’t consider herself the Qanon candidate. She sparked controversy after videos emerged of her making bigoted remarks and publicly questioning whether a plane crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11.
