Yahoo News reports:
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene laughed off a question about people dying of Covid-19, telling the reporter, “You crack me up.” The question came a day after Twitter briefly suspended the Georgia Republican over misinformation she’d posted about the coronavirus, including that it “is not dangerous for non-obese people and those under 65.”
On Tuesday, a journalist challenged Ms Greene about that tweet. “Do you feel any responsibility for keeping people in Georgia safe?” Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Tia Mitchell asked. “You know, there are children, skinny people who have died of the coronavirus.” The congresswoman responded with a demonstrative laugh.

I was the reporter who asked this question after listening to Rep. Greene downplay the impact of COVID-19 on young people & those who aren’t obese. I asked if she feels any responsibility to people in Georgia to protect them. She said the responsibility is their own. https://t.co/lKmOC4s9bx

Nothing makes @mtgreenee happier than being reminded of dead children.

Just when I already despise her, she always finds a way to make me dislike her more.
She better not appear at a school for an event, fundraiser etc if she thinks this lightly of children’s safety.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a sociopath. How could anyone laugh at the thought of people dying from a pandemic? How could Kevin McCarthy allow this woman to remain in Congress?

A congresswoman looks out for her constituents, she doesn’t laugh at their pain.
Marjorie Taylor Greene won’t be laughing on November 8, 2022. https://t.co/rHyz9TfMX2
