WATCH: Marjorie Taylor Greene Boasts She’s Really Good At Apologizing For Spreading Dangerous Conspiracy Theories
Marjorie Taylor Greene gave a press conference Friday that was part sour grapes, part Donald Trump loyalty tour, and part self-praise. When one reporter asked if she was sorry for some of the things she’s said, Greene responded with a wide grin and declared that apologizing is easy for her.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s entire press conference can be seen here on CSPAN. In her speech, she declares that being removed from committees makes her more free, and that she’s actually really happy that Democrats, along with 11 Republicans, voted to do so. She says that the Republican Party belongs to Donald Trump, and defends her attacks on school shooting survivor David Hogg.
A reporter pointed out that Greene has not actually apologized for any of the things she said, only said she regrets them. Greene replies as shown in the clip below.
"I'm sorry for saying all those things that are wrong and offensive" — Marjorie Taylor Greene (other comments she's made do not indicate that she's been very introspective about endorsing violence or pushing conspiracy theories, however) pic.twitter.com/XADP7afH7y

I’m sorry for saying all those things that were wrong and offensive and I sincerely mean that and I’m happy to say that! I think it’s good to say when we’ve done something wrong. So, yeah. That’s easy for me.
Greene does not enumerate the specific things she is apologizing for. NPR reported Thursday that the offenses for which she was removed from committees include racist and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, and supporting calls for violence against her colleagues.
In her speech Thursday she admitted that several conspiracy theories she’d promoted, including characterizing school shootings as ‘false flags’ and suggesting that the 9/11 attacks weren’t real, but went on to complain about being held accountable.
