Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene has issued a rare mea culpa after comparing mask mandates and other pandemic restrictions to the Holocaust. The original remark sparked accusations of anti-Semitism.
Greene held a brief press conference after visiting the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in the nation’s capital on Monday, saying her previous comments had bothered her for weeks and that she wanted to “own” her error.
“This afternoon, I visited the Holocaust museum. The Holocaust is – there’s nothing comparable to it. It happened, and over 6 million Jewish people were murdered,” she said.
