It seems Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is still trying to work out how the coronavirus is transmitted.

Greene — who is known as the “QAnon congresswoman” thanks to her past endorsement of the conspiracy movement — posted a video to Twitter on Thursday showing her doing what appears to be a CrossFit workout.

“This is my Covid protection,” she wrote alongside a flexed-arm emoji and the hashtag #MakeAmericaHealthyAgain.

This is my Covid protection 💪#MakeAmericaHealthyAgainIt’s time to #FireFauci

Twitter users had no problem exercising their right to point out the absurdity and ignorance of her declaration.

Hey, do you Crossfit? So weird because usually people who do don’t talk about it. Also, you’re a gigantic dumbass.

@TheRock got Covid, Marjorie Three Names.So no… this IS not your “Covid protection”.This is you having copious amounts of time to “exercise” on camera, because you have been stripped of your Committee assignments.Walk into an ER maskless.Let’s see how “protected” you are.

Picking up heavy stuff does not stop a virus from infecting you.

In a recent poll, 90% of American adults said that they would stay at least six feet apart from anyone who does CrossFit

why don't you shoot the virus? that's just as affective against covid as weight training is

You’d be the funniest person on Twitter if all of this was meant to be satire

what is she going to do, deadlift her ventilator?

My favorite genre of tweet for the last year is conservatives saying "let's see covid try to beat THIS" and it's something so unrelated that you get whiplash

Dislocating your shoulders prevents COVID?

Bragging about CrossFit is one way to get people to socially distance

— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) April 1, 2021

I'd say this is an April Fool's Joke, but then again, this is 100% serious and it is scary.

Did MTG run for Congress just so she could find a bigger audience for her lifting videos

— Amanda Mull (@amandamull) April 1, 2021

Pretending the germ theory of disease isn't real to own the libs. @mtgreenee is basically a standup comedian whose shtick is spreading disease and fascism, but at taxpayer's expense. "Try the veal! Fire Fauci! I'll be here all week!"

Being jacked or flinging about on a pullup bar like “like a wild salmon trying to escape a grizzly bear” does not make you immune from a respiratory viral infection. According to the World Health Organization, the coronavirus is transmitted through respiratory droplets among people who are in close contact with each other. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also urges gymgoers to wear masks, social distance and to opt for “low-intensity activities over high-intensity activities when indoors.” This is because when you exercise, you exhale and inhale larger amounts of air, two experts explained to NBC News.

Some Twitter users also pointed out to Greene that CrossFit doesn’t even want to be associated with her.

"CrossFit supports respectful fact-based political dialogue to address our common challenges, and we strongly oppose the loathsome and dangerous lies attributed to Ms. Greene."

— Charlotte Clymer 🏳️‍🌈 (@cmclymer) April 1, 2021

“CrossFit supports respectful fact-based political dialogue to address our common challenges, and we strongly oppose the loathsome and dangerous lies attributed to Ms. Greene,” the company told told BuzzFeed News last month.

Greene’s post also referenced new legislation she proposed Thursday. The bill, called the “Fire Fauci Act,” would reduce Dr. Anthony Fauci’s government salary to $0 until the Senate confirms a replacement director at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

🚨NEW BILL ALERT!🚨The "#FireFauci Act" will slash the salary of Dr. Always Wrong to $0 and the "#WeWillNotComply Act" will ban vaccine "passports," prevent discrimination against the unvaccinated, and much more to protect the freedom of the American People.

— Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (@RepMTG) April 1, 2021

Raw Story points out, however, that the epidemiologist’s job is not subject to Senate confirmation.
