Just when you thought Marjorie Taylor Greene couldn’t be more obnoxious – or spread more dangerous misinformation – she drops a new tweet. Though this one came out on April Fools’ Day, it was no joke. It was a video featuring the Republican congresswoman from Georgia lifting weights and doing “pull-ups” Crossfit-style. The caption read: “This is my Covid protection [muscle emoji] #MakeAmericaHealthyAgain It’s time to #FireFauci”
This is my Covid protection #MakeAmericaHealthyAgain

Oh, dear. Where do we start? Because Greene is a Crossfit fanatic, you know the moves are haphazardly executed. Even if you could excuse those sorry excuses for pull-ups (which look more like she’s flailing), the notion that exercise can prevent coronavirus is asinine. Covid is an equal-opportunity attacker (though being obese does put you at higher risk for dying from it). Regardless, working up a sweat is no substitute for a vaccine. And fire Fauci? Give us a fucking break. He’s the one person consistently speaking sense and citing science during this godforsaken pandemic.
But don’t take our word for it. Just check out Twitter, where people who aren’t dumbbells knocked down Greene’s ridiculous assertions – with a hearty side of humor. These are the funniest tweet reactions to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Crossfit video.

marjorie taylor greene wont see your tweet making fun of her workout, but your crossfit friend who makes small children wait in line for the monkey bars because they’re using it for exercises that turn their joints into peanut butter will. and that’s worth it

I would rather have someone watch me fail to do a normal pull-up than succeed at a crossfit pull-up.

For my april fools I going to tweet a video of myself doing mega-crossfit showing off my incredible upper body strength and say ‘this is my vaccine, Fire Fauci’ but I didn’t have time this year, so you’ll just have to imagine how in shape I am

Marjorie Taylor Greene pretends to be good at CrossFit, but she just posted a video of herself hanging from a pull-up bar, kicking her legs around like a child struggling in gym class…

Marjorie Taylor Greene is the worst thing to happen to CrossFit since people who do CrossFit started posting about CrossFit on Facebook.

Crossfit is the scientology of exercise

The least surprising thing about Marjorie Taylor Greene is that she does Crossfit.
