Marjorie Taylor Greene is not frequently ruffled, even when people point out that she really missed the mark while not realizing that Chris Stapleton’s mutual “wokeness” was a big reason for his involvement in the Super Bowl’s Black National Anthem showcase. She also recently made headlines by advocating for a “national divorce”/possible civil war, and although she is no stranger to being hyperbolic in general, her criticism of President Biden led to a truly outlandish figure that no one could possibly believe is true.
It is, in fact, not at all true. “$113 Billion has been appropriated to Ukraine in just 1 yr,” Greene tweeted while sitting alongside the bandwagon of people praising Trump for bragging to McDonalds employees in East Palestine while Biden visited Ukraine. “Trump’s wall would have only cost $22 billion, but Congress refused to fund it. 6 Billion people illegally crossed our border since Biden took office, but Ukraine’s border is the only border that matters to Washington.”
Greene did double back with a corrected tweet that reads “millions,” but screenshots exist, as seen below.

The “billion” is, of course, the word that sticks out. The total global population is sitting at right under 8 billion, and Greene’s initial tweet appeared to claim that Biden allowed the majority of humanity to illegally galavant across the U.S.-Mexico border. And you know, we all make typos. I clearly make them, but this is a significant enough error that one wonders whether Greene was genuinely mistaken and believed that “billion” was the correct word to use.
This is, after all, the same congressperson who believed that “Jewish space lasers” were, in fact, a real thing. Whatever the case, people screenshotted the “billion” tweet and believe that this is no mere typo. In fact, they’re questioning Greene’s place in Congress (and on committees vital to national security) for real.
Marjorie Taylor Greene believes that 6 BILLION people illegally crossed the border in the last 2 years, that would be 77% of the world population.
This is not a typo, it is just stupidity

I can think of 6 billion reasons why Marjorie Taylor Greene should have her ass kicked out of Congress.

Latest Marjorie Taylor Greene stupidity. Gangrene just said 6 billion people illegally came across the border under Biden. Then she eventually deleted it. Because even an imbecile like her realized, how much of imbecile that made her sound. Why not just say quadzillion people.

Most people have roughly 170 Billion brain cells. Marjorie Taylor Greene is so dumb she only has 6 Billion. Someone should help her with the math stuff.
