Marjorie Taylor Greene's 'Commander and Chief' Tweet Widely Mocked

Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has been widely mocked for a tweet containing various grammatical errors, including referring to the president as the "commander and chief."

Greene posted the tweet in reply to a comment from longtime GOP strategist Bill Kristol, who posted that she "recommends betting against America" after the GOP representative criticized a number of President Joe Biden's foreign policies and his apparent stature on the world stage.

"I tell you what pumpkin. How about you suit up and report to your commander and chief yourself and tell him your reporting for duty," Greene wrote.

"You might want to train a little first, the only thing in shape on you and prepared for war is your little Twitter thumbs."

As well as incorrectly using "your" and "is" instead of "are," the correct term for the president's role as head of the country's armed forces is commander in chief.

The tweet was soon met with widespread mockery and ridicule on social media.

Republican rep. Adam Kinzinger tweeted: "I mean seriously, if anyone is going to say 'commander and chief' it's her. She literally has no idea it's commander in chief and I'm zero percent surprised."

Mike Murphy, a GOP strategist, wrote: "Why do I suspect that if you come within ten feet of this flaming imbecile for longer than 5 seconds you automatically lose 40 IQ points.

"Literally the stupidest person in Congress, and that's no small accomplishment. Or as MTG would spell it 'akomplissment.'

Actor Ken Olin said: "Oh, c'mon…This person isn't qualified for middle school let alone Congress."

Others referenced Greene's past comments to mock her for the tweet, including mistakenly referring to Capitol Police as being like the cold soup "gazpacho" instead of the Gestapo, and her claim that California wildfires were started by a "Jewish space laser."

Former New York district attorney Preet Bharara tweeted: "When the position becomes available, I will apply to be commander and chief of the gazpacho police. Or commander and chef. Whichever."

National security attorney Bradley P. Moss said: "You're* Commander in chief*. Do they not have grammar classes in your part of Georgia? Or were you too busy reading about space lasers that day?"

Greene has posted other tweets containing grammatical or spelling mistakes.

On March 9, she used "their" instead of "they're" in a tweet where she discussed a recently passed spending bill that would provide foreign aid to mock the idea of gender neutral toilets.

"On page 1,556, of the $1.5 Trillion dollar Omnibus bill that Democrats are still fighting over, I just thought I'd let y'all know that we are going to fund $17,000,000 'to build and maintain safe latrines' in developing countries," Greene wrote.

"I just want to know if their gender neutral?"

Greene has been contacted for comment.
