We reported recently that controversial Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has racked up around $48,000 in fines for refusing to wear a protective mask when on the House floor amid the raging pandemic. However, during a recent interview on Newsmax, Greene said she was fined over $60,500 in fines by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and admitted that she is unvaccinated. So, that would bring her $174,000 yearly salary down to $113,500. That’s a pretty big financial hit.
I think she does this for attention, and she makes sure she gets it. She has that same issue former President Donald Trump has: a need for constant attention. And both of them resist wearing a mask in public, but Greene was wearing one at an airport recently. You do have to mask up to fly, but the airlines haven’t demanded that passengers be vaccinated — yet. That would hamper Greene’s ability to get around.
During her Newsmax interview, she said, “I refuse to wear a mask.”

Over the years I’ve been repulsed by my fair share of women (and men) but this woman is in another league. 🤮

She wears a mask to fly. How about wearing a mask at the Capitol because it deserves respect?

Because she knows she can get away with being a disruptor at her job, but she cannot get away with being a disruptor at the airport or on a plane.
BTW, I would be fired if I were a disruptor at my place of employment!!

The masks are meant to slow the spreading disease down and protect each other. That’s asking too much of Republicans lately, who claim to be patriots, even though they won’t put a simple face mask on to protect fellow Americans. It’s all political theater with these people.
