Over the weekend, Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA.) reported that her television turned on itself, and she suspected someone may have tried to hack into it.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday (June 25), Greene detailed that on Saturday night at her “DC residence, the television turned on by itself and the screen showed someone’s laptop trying to connect to the TV.”

The Georgia Republican continued by stating “for the record” that she is “ery happy.”

She went on to explain that she is “very healthy and eat well and exercise[s] a lot,” adding that she doesn’t smoke and “never have,” doesn’t “take any medications,” and isn’t vaccinated.

Greene stated that because of all these reasons, she isn’t “concerned about blood clots, heart conditions, strokes, or anything else.”

The Georgia Republican concluded by stating that she doesn’t have “anything to hide,” loves the U.S. and the people, and understands “how much they’ve been screwed over by the corrupt people in our government,” adding that she is not “willing to be quiet about it, or willing to go along with it.”

In a follow-up tweet, Greene shared a link to a 2019 CBS News article that warned consumers about security risks related to smart TVs, as flagged by the FBI.

The FBI’s warning at the time reveals that “television can also be a gateway for hackers to come into your home,” describing that “in a worst-case scenario,” hackers can turn on the camera and microphone in the bedroom TV and “silently cyberstalk you.”

Craig Agranoff, a political analyst, highlighted in a statement that a TV turning on by itself was “bizarre,” but suggested that Greene’s tweets about the TV “play into her previous conspiracy theories about the government spying on her.”
