Since being stripped of her committee assignments for her support of deranged conspiracy theories and the execution of her now-colleagues, Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has embraced belligerence toward Democratic elected officials to preserve her standing among far-right voters.
Whether she's badgering Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to debate or seeking to impeach President Joe Biden on his first full day in office, Greene continues to preserve Trump's model of aggression and pettiness, though much of her criticisms aren't based in reality.
Such was the case this month when Greene penned a letter to Biden riddled with misinformation regarding the virus that's killed nearly 600 thousand Americans.

In the letter, Greene repeated her calls to fire Biden's chief medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, whose public health guidances—she says—amounted to ineptitude or deception.
While the conspiratorial contents of the letter weren't surprising coming from Greene, its last sentence stuck out:
"We urge your administration to act to provide us with these answers by June 31, 2021."
But Greene's team inadvertently gave Biden unlimited time to respond.
As the old adage goes, "Thirty days hath September, April, June and November." June doesn't have 31 days.
The error generated mockery on social media.
