A newly elected conservative House member who has taken the lead in fighting a congressional mask mandate today seized on a new Danish study that found that masks don’t make a difference in stopping the spread of the coronavirus.
“Paging Dr. Fauci,” tweeted Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene.
In commenting to Secrets on Wednesday, she said, “America is about freedom. That should include the freedom to wear a mask or not. I want to protect those that are in the risk group. We can be responsible without ruining lives. Healthy adults and children are virtually unaffected by this virus.”
And she added, “Will Dr. Fauci trust the science on this one? I will always call face coverings what they are: oppressive. Just ask any woman in Iran.”
In an interview with Secrets during last week’s new member orientation, she blasted a House rule stating that members, staff, and visitors seen without wearing a mask will be booted
