Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14) believes she has the answer to Covid… strenuous physical activity for all. Yesterday she shared a video of what she described as her “Covid protection”, along with the hashtag #MakeAmericaHealthyAgain.
The tweet was accompanied by a video of her doing clean-and-press lifts and rather unusual pull-ups.
This is my Covid protection 💪#MakeAmericaHealthyAgain

When people began to question her unorthodox pull-up method, the anti-LGBTQ lawmaker issued a further tweet of clarification, saying, “Since this is trending: 1. Yes being healthy through training and lifestyle, I trust my immune system as my Covid protection. 2. For those confused on my pull-ups, these are called butterfly pull-ups. Sometimes I do strict and sometimes I do butterfly.”
“We know that risk factors include obesity. As a former gym owner, I helped many lose weight and get healthy again.”

Some pointed out the pull-ups have been practiced by CrossFit aficionados, and Greene has previously made no secret of her CrossFit lifestyle or formerly owning a CrossFit-affiliated gym.
CrossFit itself has distanced itself from Greene, telling Buzzfeed last month, “CrossFit supports respectful fact-based political dialogue to address our common challenges, and we strongly oppose the loathsome and dangerous lies attributed to Ms. Greene.”
Greene’s video prompted thousands of comments. Although no one disputes the benefits of exercise and maintaining a healthy weight, Greene’s workout was questioned by many.
So my 92-year-old grandmother should have done more weights and pull-ups, and Covid would not have killed her? Thanks for the brilliant advice Marjorie.

As a CrossFit affiliate owner for nearly a decade, please stop embarrassing those of us who know science & fitness go hand in hand. Also here is Crossfit’s guidelines on Covid. You know, the whole trust the science and use common sense thing https://t.co/SiWCjknusR

So, by implication, you’re saying that the more than half a million who died were just too lazy to live?
That is disgusting but, since it’s coming from you, not surprising.

As a personal trainer… everything you did there was dangerous and not done correctly… you’re right, you don’t need to fear Covid, your workout will kill you.

One shared photos of a muscle-bound gay man who made headlines last year when he nearly died from Covid. He subsequently shared photos of his weight loss.
How many more squats should this guy have done to protect himself?
I mean, he clearly worked out a lot, but I guess it just wasn’t enough. pic.twitter.com/BQjwDNnpxv

When not posting bizarre workout videos, Greene spent most of this week attacking the current administration’s efforts to get as many people as possible vaccinated. She has attacked the “really disturbing” idea of vaccine passports as “Biden’s mark of the beast”.

Yesterday, Greene sponsored two new pieces of legislation. The first, the ‘Fire Fauci Act’, criticizes Dr. Anthony Fauci’s handling of the pandemic and demands his salary be reduced to $0, “until a new NIAID administration is confirmed by the Senate.”

The second piece of legislation, entitled the ‘We Will Not Comply Act’, seeks to bar businesses from discriminating against anyone for not having a Covid vaccine passport.
Oh, and when she wasn’t attacking Fauci and Covid passports, she was pledging her support for scandal-hit Rep. Matt Gaetz.
Remember all the conspiracy theories and lies like Trump/Russia collusion and propaganda that the media has spread around.
Take it from me rumors and headlines don’t equal truth.
I stand with @mattgaetz

I got my first COVID shot yesterday, and to be honest, it did wonders for my mental health. While I still don’t think the pandemic will ever truly end (because there are too many idiots like this “Congresswoman”), I also believe that being vaccinated is the only way you’ll ever truly be able to enjoy a quasi-normal lifestyle again. So get your shots everyone! A little temporary pain (my arm is admittedly still somewhat sore this morning) is the price we all have to pay to get our lives back.
I did yesterday too. and I left feeling patriotic for participating in helping the country be immunized against COVID-19.
I kept praying for the barbell to collapse into her skull. Alas, no such luck.
I think it already has, as evidenced by her psychotic thinking. That bit was left on the cutting room floor where she actually belongs
It’s good that Marjorie Traitor Greene is voluntarily CrazyGlue-ing herself to Matt Gaetz. That will make the next few months very entertaining for the late-night comedy shows. Maybe Matt can do some Ecstasy with her.
those pull-ups were quite something, complete with pelvis thrusts and everything.
Oh honey make up your damned mind. Its either Fascism or Communism. The dumb C*nt just says anything to scare up the rubes. A covid vaccine passport makes perfect sense.
Reminds me of those Youtube videos of stupid but funny people at the gym doing it their way I guess.
Got my first dose of the vaccine on Wednesday, no I’ll effects other than slight, really slight, injection site soreness yesterday, nothing at all today. Can’t wait to get my second dose later this month.
Do you not have editors at Queerty? Spelling errors throughout.
Someone ought to tell Marjorie Traitor Greene that “Trump/Russia collusion” wasn’t a hoax or “propaganda.” Even a bipartisan US Senate committee headed by Republicans issued a unanimous report noting extensive contacts between Don the Traitor Con and Putin’s gang.
And don’t forget that Don the Traitor Con pardoned a number of criminals who could have exposed his ties to Russia, including Manafort, Flynn, Stone, etc. and Erickson, who was the lover of convicted Russian agent Maria Butina (remember her?). Not that facts or sense or reason will penetrate Traitor Greene’s skull, but someone should share that news with her anyways.
Facts have never meant much to Republicons. What makes you think this “flake” will be any different? Substituting lies and conspiracies are the bread and butter of these “people.” (And I use that word very loosely!)
OMG I knew she was a nutcase but figured as a former gym owner at least she would know how to lift weights and do pull-ups. This looks like what ignorant bros do when they try to impress someone at the gym. Her form is absolutely terrible! What’s next, showing people how to bench press more by arching your back?
Figures she was Crossfit, seen lots of terrible form from their gyms.
I have a bad back and havent exercised in years and am 65 but by wearing a mask and staying 6 feet from everyone I did not get sick . How would she explain that if weird exercises was what did it
Hey Maggoty Traitor Geek–Too bad that routine doesn’t ward off being clobbered big time with the stupid stick.
Can we all agree on one thing? Marjorie Taylor Greene is more than a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Then again she probably thinks Happy Meals is an antifa inspired conspiracy to lure children into sex trafficking and god knows what. (I’m gonna laugh me ass off if I hear she’s used this post as “proof” of latest liberal conspiracy. LOL ?)
