Reading: Biden, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Trump Impeachment: Live Updates – The New York Times

<a href=“https://ift.tt/3auADkc”>Greene’s snark</a>

But you didn’t tell me I wasn’t supposed to pee in the pool! <sarcasm answers sarcasm>

Democrats argued that Ms. Greene’s comments — and Republican leaders’ refusal to take action against her themselves — had created an untenable situation that required the unusual action. In social media posts made before she was elected, Ms. Greene endorsed executing top Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi; suggested a number of school shootings were secretly perpetrated by government actors; and repeatedly trafficked in anti-Semitic and Islamophobic conspiracy theories.

What indicates the Greene isn’t fit to sit on committees is her address, supposedly justifying her comments:

“I was allowed to believe things that weren’t true and I would ask questions about them and talk about them, and that is absolutely what I regret,” Ms. Greene said, wearing a mask embroidered with the phrase “FREE SPEECH.”

It’s the sarcasm in contempt of the process that demands she takes the bench.
