During a recent livestreamed broadcast on her social media channels, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga) referred to a “peach tree dish” when trying to discuss a “Petri dish” in which fake meat pushed by billionaire Bill Gates is supposedly cultivated. (Why are conservatives so consistently obsessed with Gates?) Greene promptly garnered widespread mockery for her flub.
“Oh my goodness. [Greene] completely said “peach tree dish”!!!!!!” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said on Twitter. The rest of what Greene was saying wasn’t any less ridiculous — she went on a bizarre tirade about a supposed push for the government to know “when you’re eating,” which doesn’t make any sense. It’s troubling for such a conspiracy-obsessed individual to be in power in the U.S. Congress. “The government totally wants to provide surveillance on every part of your life,” Greene claimed on the broadcast. “They want to know when you’re eating. They want to know if you’re eating a cheeseburger, which is very bad because Bill Gates wants you to eat his fake meat that grows in a peach tree dish. So you’ll probably get a little zap inside your body, and that’ll say ‘No, no, don’t eat a real cheeseburger, you need to eat… the fake meat from Bill Gates.'” Obviously, there’s no real-world evidence for Greene’s nonsensical claims.

Greene has otherwise occupied herself in Congress with, among other things, promoting falsehoods about the integrity of the last presidential election and — more recently — ranting against the continued provision of baby formula for babies from outside the country for whom the federal government has responsibility. While there are numerous other options for addressing the formula shortage plaguing the U.S., Greene’s choice was to ghoulishly rush to the possibility of basically potentially starving very young children who happen to be foreign. “The Biden administration is sending pallets of baby formula to the border for illegal aliens, while American mothers are crying in the grocery store searching for it. We should Protect America First!” Greene recently complained. That’s just who she is. Unlike fellow extremist Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn (N.C.), Greene recently won the GOP primary for her Congressional seat, meaning she’s likely to return to Congress because of her district’s GOP lean.
