100% this.

In a way, that's why it's so disheartening to see people fall for this (as opposed to those who know and don't care) because the lie is so obvious. I guess in a way it's like e-mail scam: it's deliberately ridiculous so that anyone who actually takes the bait is bound to believe anything you tell them.

Now Boebert OTOH is harder to read after she pranced around on the CPAC stage talking about no Fauci Ouchy for her.

Yep....MTG is vaccinated or she would have bragged about not being. Too bad...I would love for her to have been hospitalized with Delta.

I'm holding out hope for Boebert getting it.

What I'm finding odd is why she would balk at simply saying she hadn't been? Why should she be afraid of being caught in a lie?

Being caught in a lie never hurt Trump.

Except that the Republican Party is far more dangerous and destructive, and they haven't yet been officially labeled a terrorist organization.

Are you implying she is worried about lying? At all?

Hans

ETA: The trick is, never give information if you can avoid it. Always try to counter a factual question with some kind of attack. I don't think you can infer the truth from anything she says.

That's a bit of straw, worried about lying.

Here's my POV.
She doesn't want her followers to know she got vaccinated.

She didn't have a pat answer, lying about her vaccine status.

Caught off-guard her knee-jerk reaction was to go with, I don't have to answer.
She might have just lied had she planned an answer.

Now let's look at an alternate POV.
She's not vaccinated.

Why not just say so?

She might not be vaccinated, but is simply unable to utter any statement thatís even partially true.

dirtywick 7th August 2021 01:53 PM

I think she's vaccinated. Saying she isn't and then it coming out that she did get vaccinated is a lie she can't afford to get caught telling.

mgidm86 7th August 2021 03:20 PM

Of course she's vaccinated. I knew that the moment she wouldn't answer and I said so here. Old news.

Why? She could just as easily say it's as fake news as the COVID death count.

Stacyhs 7th August 2021 05:53 PM

She's vaccinated. Let's not twist ourselves into pretzels trying to come up with any other logical explanation for her response. There really isn't one.

Crazy Chainsaw 7th August 2021 05:57 PM

The Question isn't if she is Vaccinated or not, but how do we vaccinate American from the Stupid she is spreading.?

Yep, at least the Taliban don't have several thousand nukes.

I said very early in the Trump administration that he really, really wanted to use one, and I stand by that. If he gets back in '24, he will nuke someone.

As usual, Greene is spreading 'misinformation' ("A beautiful word." - donald trump) and outright lies. That the police state agents who come to your door will want ID, names, occupants, etc. It is truly shameful.

Stacyhs 8th August 2021 12:01 PM

Well, I don't like people trying to give me information about ways to not get really sick and or die! How dare they disturb me by knocking on my door and answering any questions I might have about Covid vaccines/vaccinations and how to get them! Damn commies!

On the other hand, you can infer she is lying when her lips move.

Has anyone thought of telling MTG the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide?

https://www.dhmo.org/facts.html

Once she finds out, I'm sure she'll push for bills in congress to ban it

:D:D

Not if she gets a few fat donations from the DHMO industry. Republicans don't seem to be worried about lead, mercury, cyanide or fracking chemicals in their poor people's drinking water. I'm sure they can be convinced dihydrogen monoxide is perfectly okay too (without them knowing what it is).

Not sure what happens if you tell them it is in vaccines.

Good one! I suspect even MTG is not daft enough*) to fall for the other one, but tell her it's an ingredient in vaccines, and she might bite.

I told an idiot anti Vaccer, around here that Oxygen Hydrate was in the Vaccines and that it's been known to thousands of people exposed to it, while he was drinking a bottle of water.
He said he would never put Oxygen Hydrate in his body.

MTG has been suspended from Twitter again for pushing vaccine misinformation.
Quote:

Twitter (TWTR) has suspended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's account for one week following another violation of the platform's rules, the company said Tuesday.

Greene tweeted on Monday that the Food and Drug Administration "should not approve the covid vaccines." She also claimed the vaccines were "failing" and that they were ineffective at reducing the virus's spread.
In response, Twitter labeled the tweet as misleading and prevented Greene from tweeting for one week.

Galaxie 10th August 2021 12:32 PM

How many times must she be suspended before she gets a ban? :rolleyes:

Quote:

Tuesday's suspension marks at least the third and toughest penalty Twitter has imposed on Greene for sharing misinformation. In January, Greene was suspended for 12 hours from Twitter for sharing conspiracy theories about the Georgia Senate runoff elections, a move that the company said violated its civic integrity policy. In July, Twitter suspended Greene again for 12 hours for sharing misinformation about Covid-19 and vaccines. (Greene was also temporarily suspended in March but was soon reinstated after Twitter said its automated systems had acted in error.)

According to Twitter's Covid-19 misinformation policy, users can receive a one-week suspension if they violate that policy four times. Violating the Covid-19 policy five or more times can result in a permanent ban. Twitter declined to say how many times Greene has violated the company's rules.

I would love to hear what MTG's solutions to the COvid crisis are.
But she does not do solutionks; just mindless, bigoted attacks on her opponents and scamming her deluded supporters for every dime she can.

The 2A solution? That seems to be a popular one with her and Trump.

I'm guessing her solution is, "Let nature take its course, and if a lot of people die then that's the price of freedom!"

She doesn't think there is a crisis at all.

Sorry but that's ridiculous.


There's no way she could ask anyone nicely... apart from Trump.
