Well, Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Greene is at it again and frankly at this point, when is she not up to something? The lawmaker has proven time and time again that her primary goal is to simply remain relevant, and on the radar of the media and right wing media in particular. She is bound and determined to stay in the good graces of Donald Trump and his supporters, no matter how ridiculous it makes her look and of course, Dr. Fauci’s recent hearing was no exception.

Miranda Nazzaro with The Hill writes:

“…Fauci, who was the face of the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response while the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testified before the House Oversight and Accountability Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic on Monday for the first time since retiring.

While questioning Fauci, Greene pointedly refused to recognize Fauci as a doctor and instead referred to him as “Mr. Fauci.”

“Do you think that’s appropriate? Do the American people deserve to be abused like that, Mr. Fauci? Because you’re not ‘Dr.,’ you’re ‘Mr. Fauci’ in my few minutes,” Greene said before adding, “No, I don’t need your answer.”…”
