Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) hasn't been in office for a month and she's already one of outgoing President Donald Trump's most vocal defenders in the House of Representatives.

Greene rose to prominence for her past support of the QAnon conspiracy web, which hinges on the collective delusion that Trump was sent to expose the secret network of satanic pedophile cannibals controlling the United States government.

Greene has amplified Trump's lie that the 2020 election was stolen from him thanks to widespread election fraud orchestrated by Democrats that delivered a false victory to President-elect Joe Biden.

As lawmakers took shelter in a secure room during last week's unprecedented siege on the United States Capitol by pro-Trump extremists, Greene was on video refusing to wear a mask despite the pandemic that's killed over 350 thousand Americans. Since then, multiple lawmakers have tested positive for the virus.

Greene recently responded to an article by Benjy Sarlin of NBC news in which he criticized the all-too-common refusal of Republican lawmakers to wear a mask.

Political commentator Keith Olbermann caught wind of the criticism and told Greene—who called January 6 a "1776 moment" for the United States before the riots occurred—that she was a traitor destined for prison.

Greene, whose campaign ads featured her with an assault rifle warning "Antifa" to "stay the hell out" of her district, considered Olbermann's sentiment a threat and reported him to the FBI.

Olbermann soon responded, calling her a "snowflake"—a name commonly used by conservatives to dismiss Democrats they believe are too sensitive.

The internet largely sided with Olbermann.

He was far from the only one to call out Greene's hypocrisy.

Greene recently announced that she'd be filing articles of impeachment against President-elect Biden in a move that's certain to fail in the House.
