Marjorie Taylor Greene has, until now, supported Donald Trump in his false claims that he actually won the election. However, reality may be starting to sink in — on Monday she tweeted to complain about the many Republicans who voted against Trump.
Greene didn’t fully admit Trump’s loss, even now. She’s still claiming that Biden “stole” the election, and she’s vastly oversimplifying the fact that masses of Republicans could no longer stomach Trump’s attacks on democracy, and his endangerment of Americans by denial of the seriousness of COVID-19, pretending that they just “don’t like his tweets.”
Still, while complaining about Joe Biden’s picks for Health and Human Services Secretary and Surgeon General, she admitted that the reason for the election outcome was that Republicans voted against the incumbent president — that they did not choose “four more years.”
Biden’s choice for Surgeon General HATES your guns as much as the HHS Secretary pick LOVES abortion.https://t.co/scNnPuCHtp

By no means does this suggest Representative-Elect Greene has fully accepted the results of the election, particularly in her own state, Georgia, where she ran unopposed and still got less than three-quarters of the votes. In another tweet, less than 12 hours apart, she insisted that the election was “unfair” to Donald Trump, and that Georgia did not choose Joe Biden — although the lawsuits have consistently failed, and, according to 11 Alive, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, will certify the results today, cementing the state’s 16 electoral votes for Biden. On Tuesday — the Federal deadline for states to settle election disputes — electors can be selected, and in one week, on Monday, December 14, the electoral college meets to vote and officially select Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as President-Elect and Vice President-Elect of the United States.
