During an exchange with a reporter this Tuesday, Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene had an interesting response to a question about Covid deaths in the U.S. and whether or not she felt any responsibility in light of her posts disparaging vaccines.
“Do you feel any responsibility for keeping people in Georgia safe?” Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Tia Mitchell asked Greene. “You know, there are children, skinny people who have died of the coronavirus.”
Greene responded with a big laugh.
“Tia, you crack me up,” Greene said. “You know what? I think people’s responsibility is their own.”

On Monday, Greene was suspended from Twitter after she posted a tweet saying that the “controversial #COVID19 vaccines should not be forced on our military for a virus that is not dangerous for non-obese people and those under 65.”
Twitter flagged the tweet as “misleading” and suspended Greene for 12 hours.
