I don’t think it was Ruth. No, I do not think so.
– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a noted conspiracy theorist, in response to a caller during an appearance on the pro-Trump website UniteAmericaFirst.com on February 26, 2019. According to a report by Media Matters, a caller asked Greene during her appearance whether she had seen “the picture” of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the “airport” (ie at the national airport) “how it is a whole new person” and asked her whether she believed “this is Ruth”. Before Greene could answer, host Will Johnson stepped in and said, “It’s almost like a body double like Hillary Clinton.” Greene took office on January 3, 2021.
