You probably knew Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has a tendency to say and do some really crazy things. Turns out she’s also a bird collector, but not in the way you might think.
The hardline Republican held a town hall in Cobb County, Georgia on Thursday, which appeared to be mostly attended by supporters. She is popular in her district, winning re-election with nearly 66% of the vote in last year’s election.
Given that margin, she must have felt pretty safe tweeting a video showing her hometown audience.
However, it only took one person to ruin the optics, knocking Greene the bird over as the camera swept through the crowd.
Here is his original tweet (watch the first few seconds carefully):
And here’s a screenshot, courtesy of the Twitter user @PatriotTakespointing to the man giving the middle finger to Greene.
Despite his electoral success, far more Americans view Greene as unfavorable than favorable, according to a YouGov poll in January.
Naturally, Twitter users had thoughts.
That wasn’t the only optical issue Greene faced this week.
On Memorial Day, she sent out a tweet featuring a version of the American flag with only 18 stars.
