Around the same time, it was announced on Monday that the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot would hold a surprise hearing on Tuesday “to present newly obtained evidence and receive testimony.” Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) apparently tried to deflect by tweeting a photo of his favorite hobby. And actress Daryl Hannah was just one of many to poke fun at the state representative.

“The AR-15 is my favorite shotgun,” Greene bragged on Twitter Monday afternoon, less than an hour before news of the hearing hit news outlets. In the attached photo, Greene is pictured sitting in a jeep with a helmet and earmuffs. It’s also worth pointing out that she wears a seatbelt across her chest, so obviously all basic, common-sense safety precautions aren’t out of her reach.

As the tweet began to go viral, gun safety advocates and avid hunters ridiculed his weapon choice. Although AR-15 style semi-automatic rifles have become increasingly popular among NRA types in recent years, this is primarily due to the fact that they have become the weapon of choice in very mass shootings. hyped and that Democrats want to ban them. And although some hunters prefer to hunt with AR-15s, they were inspired by assault rifles used in wartime and were not originally designed for animal hunting.

In other words, it goes without saying that most truly experienced hunters would prefer to hunt with a more accurate rifle, not something that, well, makes your prey unrecognizable.

Unsurprisingly, political feminist account TheVolatile Mermaid was one to jump into the fray, tweeting at Greene: “A chainsaw is my favorite tool for making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.” The Splash The actress also built on the tweet, joking, “And a hacksaw is great for flossing.”

“A street sweeper works wonders on my kitchen floor” tweeted another user, while others added: “A leaf blower certainly cools my morning coffee quickly” and “A hedge trimmer gets rid of pesky hemorrhoids.”

Yippee! The latter sounds like a fairly spicy meatball.

Given that Greene is almost certainly complicit in the Jan. 6 insurrection, it’s understandable that she would want to distract from Tuesday’s hearing. We won’t have to wait long to find out what new evidence the committee is about to uncover, and whether Greene was involved and his degree of involvement. Buckle up the kids, it should be a wild ride.
