Incoming GOP lawmaker shares video of hotel room workout, citing ‘Democrat tyrannical control’

Greene shared the video on Twitter, and claimed that gyms and small businesses were closed in D.C. Her claim was quickly debunked by journalists and others.

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), quickly pointed out “there is literally a gym around the corner from the hotel she is staying at.”

The Washington, D.C. metro area – which includes D.C, Maryland and Virginia – recorded 3,514 new COVID-19 cases Wednesday. DC alone saw 206 cases since Wednesday, the most in a single day since May.
