QAnon-backing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) history of promoting conspiracy theories and making bigoted, offensive and threatening comments was laid bare on Friday.
NBC’s Mehdi Hasan tried to recall as many of Greene’s controversial moments as possible in 60 seconds ― from her support of the Pizzagate and QAnon movements to her claims that the 9/11 terror attacks were an inside job and the Sandy Hook school shooting was a “false flag.”
Hasan, the host of “The Mehdi Hasan Show” on NBC’s Peacock streaming service, concluded with Greene’s promotion of former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election lie:
“She thinks Donald Trump won the election and was robbed by mass voter fraud. In fact, she thinks [President Joe] Biden didn’t win Georgia, he rigged it against Trump, but she won her seat in Georgia, it wasn’t rigged against her.”

Greene tweeted Saturday morning about having a “GREAT call” with her “all time favorite POTUS,” Trump. In the long, rambling thread that followed, Greene claimed that she and other Republicans “had nothing to do” with the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, which left five people dead.
She also wrote of Trump, who lost the election to President Joe Biden: “You can never beat him because We The People have his back.”
