    Marjorie Taylor Greene really is that dumb.

    "Well, you see your first question is a violation of my HIPPA rights," Greene replied. "And with HIPPA rights, we don't have to reveal our medical records and that also involves our vaccine records."
    I think we have a new Sarah Palin, this time she's blonde.

    Covid Betty.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    She is right and wrong.

    She does not have to reveal her vaccine status.

    But the First Amendment gives HER the right to talk about her vaccine status to anyone.

    HIPPA has no application and the psychopath doesn't know and doesn't care to know.

    To her she has her brilliant way out of answering the question and is laughing at how she is such a master mind.

    I got my shots in a room filled with about 100 other people.

    It is not personal medical information.

    No, it is. But HIPAA only applies to HIPAA-covered entities. Not to, say, the press.

    Yep! And she is quite free to share the information. But it is also technically private information, so she certainly doesn't have to share with the media. But she is an ashat for dodging the question...

    Not defending Greene or anything. But
    "I can't tell you" and "I don't have to reveal" are different things. The OP title is sorta fake news, misrepresentation of what Greene actually said.

    Just sayin'

    "a violation of my HIPPA rights"

    Also, it's HIPAA, but that's on Dominick Mastrangelo or whoever typed up the copy. But I would still put my money on that's how Greene would spell it if written.

    I agree. Which is why I'm not defending her.

    I'm just pointing out the disconnect between the OP title and the reality.
