Greene apologizes for comparing vaccine rules to Holocaust

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Monday apologized for comparing COVID-19 vaccine and mask rules to the Holocaust, declaring that “there is no comparison” between the safety measures and the genocide of six million Jews during World War II.

Greene delivered the public apology following a visit earlier Monday to the Holocaust Museum, weeks after she drew condemnations from fellow Republicans for the remarks over the long Memorial Day recess.

“I have made a mistake,” Greene told reporters. “I wanted to say that I know that words that I’ve stated were hurtful and for that I am very sorry.”
