Incoming Congresswoman-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene criticized the Capitol’s rules on masks Friday at the orientation for new members.
Our first session of New Member Orientation covered COVID in Congress.
Masks, masks, masks….
I proudly told my freshman class that masks are oppressive.
In GA, we work out, shop, go to restaurants, go to work, and school without masks.
My body, my choice.#FreeYourFace

Ms. Greene, Georgia Republican, was seen arriving on the first day of orientation Thursday wearing an American flag mask and by reporters with a mask on inside the Capitol.
She is entering Congress after gaining notoriety during her campaign for statements supporting QAnon conspiracy theories.
A mask mandate was implemented in the Capitol and House office buildings over the summer after Rep. Louie Gohmert, Texas Republican, tested positive for COVID-19 in July.
