AOC gets duped by fake Marjorie Taylor Greene quote

There’s a fake Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene quote going viral tonight that’s successfully duped a number of blue-check accounts, including that of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez:

Marjorie Taylor Greene says covid is a bioweapon because God would never create a fatal illness that harms people https://t.co/fAiPkTCJw3

— Charlie J. Johnson (@Charliemagne) June 12, 2021

AOC responded to that with, “Tell me you’ve never read the Bible without telling me you’ve never read the Bible”:

Tell me you’ve never read the Bible without telling me you’ve never read the Bible https://t.co/ttMBi1lrXp

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 13, 2021

To be clear, the fake MTG quote never appears in the Axios article getting quoted or the interview she gave:

not sure why everyone is sharing this – neither article nor linked interview appear to include a quote by her saying this. the strange claim MTG actually made is covid-19 is a bioweapon & not a result of gain-of-function searching for vaccine b/c she doesn’t believe in evolution. https://t.co/tO01pisi6f

But, as we said, AOC isn’t alone. Here are but a few of the many quote-tweets of the fake quote:

Maybe crack a Bible sometime. Especially the early stuff. It’ll blow your mind. https://t.co/8jzSH0ocWm

I don’t know, man. Has Marjorie Taylor Greene ever READ the Old Testament? Killing people is kind of God’s bag there before Jesus came. https://t.co/zerWQQPo8G

So anyway, I’m going to go read Exodus chapters 7 through 11 now… https://t.co/Lhac3DCkeq
