“Absolutely, I appreciate that,” Greene began. “Well, you know what has happened, I was one of those Americans that was supposed to never get elected to Congress; the elites don’t want me here.”
Greene eventually addressed her old remarks made on Facebook, going as far as to brush off the comments as not a big deal.
“I’ve never done drugs. I’ve never been arrested. The only thing bad I’ve done is probably gotten a speeding ticket. But you know what, just like every single other person, yeah, I have said things I shouldn’t say at some time or another, but I don’t think I have anything to apologize for. For refusing to believe Trump-Russian collusion conspiracy theories, and looking things up on the internet and asking questions about it on Facebook, big deal,” Greene stated.
“Just because I posted things on Facebook back in 2018 doesn’t mean that I should be removed from my committees here in Congress,” she added.
