Marjorie Taylor Greene Claps Back: Her Response to Earthquake Comments

In response to criticism on the internet, Republican congresswoman from Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene, continued to describe the earthquake that struck the Northeast on Friday and the impending solar eclipse that is predicted to occur over North America as divine signals.

Following the Northeast-shaking 4.8-magnitude earthquake that had its epicenter near New Jersey on Friday, Greene shared on X, the previous Twitter platform, that she saw the natural phenomenon as symbolic of the divine.

“God is sending America strong signs to tell us to repent. Earthquakes and eclipses and many more things to come. I pray that our country listens,” Greene stated.

As a result of readers adding context in reaction to Greene’s remark, a community notice was eventually placed beneath the original post.

They emphasized that astronomers have been aware of the solar eclipse scheduled for April 8 for many years. Furthermore, according to the National Earthquake Information Center, about 55 earthquakes occur every day worldwide as a result of tectonic plate movement on either active or inactive faults.

“Many have mocked and scoffed at this post and even put community notes,” Greene said on X on Sunday in response to the negative comments online.

She cited a line from the Bible in which Jesus addressed a multitude, saying, “You know how to interpret the appearance of the Earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time?”

“Yes, eclipses are predictable and earthquakes happen and we know when comets are passing by, however God created all of these things and uses them to be signs for those of us who believe, “Greene stated.

The far-right Republican frequently makes news with her remarks. When questioned about a conspiracy theory she had promoted, the Donald Trump fan cursed at a British journalist at the conclusion of an on-camera interview in March.

Additionally, Greene cut off President Joe Biden’s speech during his State of the Union address, prompting him to make spontaneous statements regarding the death of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley, whose case has been a focal point in this election year’s immigration issues.
