‘I don’t believe in evolution, I believe in God’: Marjorie Taylor Greene argues Covid escaped from Wuhan lab

Conservative firebrand Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene leaned on religion in an attempt to argue that the coronavirus pandemic was released from a Wuhan lab, and not introduced into the population via an animal at a “wet market” in China.

Appearing on Steve Bannon’s Real America’s Voice podcast on Tuesday, Ms Greene lashed out at President Biden’s top medical adviser, Dr Anthony Fauci, and called Covid-19 a “bioweapon” that she believes was unleashed from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Ms Greene said she didn’t support so-called “gain-of-function research”, where lab technicians will take a virus and tweak it in order to develop vaccines and other medications.

“I don’t buy it because I don’t believe in evolution. I don’t believe in that type of so-called ‘science’. I don’t believe in evolution, I believe in God,” she said, using air quotes to emphasise her point.
