It wasn’t a good day for MP Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Or, as Trevor Noah calls it, “the one that everyone ignores in the group’s text.”
“Democrats can’t stop him from sitting in Congress, and they really can’t stop him from saying some crazy bullshit,” Noah said. But today they voted to punish her for her past statements on conspiracy theory by stripping her of her committee assignments. Eleven Republicans joined Democrats in passing the motion by 230-1991.
Ahead of the vote, the new Georgian congresswoman expressed regret for her views, which included allegations that school shootings and 9/11 were staged.
“Yes, she was fired from her committees. His punishment is doing less work for the same amount of money, “Noah said, noting,” The last thing you want to do with a crazy person is give them more time to be crazy.
Not everyone was convinced. Minority House Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said he did not know what QAnon is, and Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) Claimed the bad weather had prevented him from watching the news.
“I know it’s Alabama, but did he get his news in a stagecoach?” Noah asked.
Yet, with Taylor Greene’s apologies for her past beliefs, “it seems someone has started listening to the reasonable voices in her head,” Noah said. But he wasn’t totally buying the excuses. “I’ve never seen anyone try to delete their browser history in real life.”
