Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) faced backlash on Wednesday for a tweet mocking assistant health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine, the country’s first transgender four-star officer.
Critics slammed the Donald Trump-adoring, conspiracy theory-endorsing Greene for transphobia with her post, below:
A dude who lived the first 50 years of his life as a man isn’t the first female anything.

Another Trump-worshipping Republican, Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, drew similar outrage with her “welcome to woke medicine, America” post about Levine. Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) called Boebert “a hateful bigot.”
Greene has made transphobic comments before, even going so far as to post an anti-transgender sign near the office of another representative who has a transgender child.
Critics of Greene’s tweet said they had reported it to Twitter as targeted harassment. The company did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
Not surprised that you tweeted this. reported…again.

Just gathered the kids around and used @mtgreenee ‘s tweet as an example to what “hate speech” is and how humans don’t treat other humans.
