Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia Republican congresswoman usually within the information for her outlandish and weird proclamations, final night time outdid herself by blaming the tampon shortage on transwomen.
“Males have taken over the whole lot. They’re ‘girls of the yr’ in each class, in girls’s classes. And the newest information is, there is a scarcity of tampons, and that is in all probability as a result of males are shopping for tampons,” Greene said on an episode of her podcast, “MTG Live.”
No proof was given, nor want it’s requested for.
Provide chain issues sourcing cotton and different uncooked supplies used to make tampons are the reason for the scarcity, in line with retailers and key producer Procter & Gamble.
It is from Greene’s first transphobic rodeo. Most just lately, she was amongst these spreading the conspiracy idea—rapidly confirmed to be an outright lie—that the Texas college taking pictures was perpetrated by a trans particular person.
