Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene made a stunning public admission by offering an apology and admitting that she made a mistake with a reference that some called insensitive. She says she wants to be transparent and own her mistakes, realizes what she said may have come off wrong, and offers an apology to people while in public and on the record. This is more than any bad-mouthed Democrat might have done.
From CNBC: "“I know that words that I have stated were hurtful, and for that I’m very sorry,” Greene told reporters outside the U.S. Capitol. Greene said she had visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington earlier Monday afternoon, and “there’s nothing comparable to it.” “It happened, and, you know, over 6 million Jewish people were murdered,” she said. The apology from the 47-year-old freshman member of Congress marked a complete reversal from her stance weeks earlier. Greene on a podcast in May compared a mask mandate on the House floor to the Holocaust, saying, “We can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens — so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany,” NBC News reported at the time."
