‘SNL’: Marjorie Taylor Greene gives NSFW science lesson, talks gender neutral Potato Head

2 min read

“Saturday Night Live” viewers just got a “sience” lesson they won’t soon forget.

During this week’s episode, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Cecily Strong) stopped by the Weekend Update desk to explain her views on gender to anchor Colin Jost.

Earlier this week, Taylor Greenedrew backlash for placing a sign that read “There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE. Trust The Science!” across the hall from another congresswoman who has a transgender child.

Wearing a misspelled shirt that read “trust the sience,” Strong’s Greene elaborated on her views.

“I love science,” she said. “I’m always talking science. Unless that science is about climate change, coronavirus, space lasers, evolution, the metric system, the rhythm method, breastfeeding, living on Mars, Jesus’ skin color or Santa’s skin color, by the way, which is white.”

Cecily Strong, right, previously played U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on "SNL" in a sketch with Kate McKinnon on Jan. 30.

After reciting an NSFW rhyme about anatomy, Strong’s Greene explained that “we’re all endowed with traditional gender roles.”

“I’m a woman, so it’s my job to bully, threaten and fight my female colleagues,” she added. “Scientists call these ‘cat fights,’ and it’s what girls do.”

Strong’s Greene also weighed in on another recent controversy: Hasbro’s decision to rebrand the Mr. Potato Head toy as the gender neutral Potato Head.

“Did you hear they are trying to cancel Mr. Potato Head?” she said, before making an NSFW joke about the toy’s anatomy.

When Jost asked if this is the kind of issue a member of Congress should be concerned about, Strong’s Greene was quick to reply.

“All I’m saying is that if Mr. Potato Head is allowed to marry another Mr. Potato Head, I’ll kill myself,” she said. “Does that sound crazy?”
