Rep. Taylor Greene Says Her TV Might Have Been Hacked

By    |   Monday, 26 June 2023 11:32 AM EDT

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., said an unknown person might have attempted to hack into her television after it "turned on by itself" over the weekend.

"Last night in my DC residence, the television turned on by itself and the screen showed someone's laptop trying to connect to the TV," Greene wrote in a tweet on Sunday.

"Just for the record: I'm very happy," she continued. "I'm also very healthy and eat well and exercise a lot. I don't smoke and never have. I don't take any medications. I am not vaccinated. So I'm not concerned about blood clots, heart conditions, strokes, or anything else."

"Nor do I have anything to hide. I just love my country and the people and know how much they've been screwed over by the corrupt people in our government and I'm not willing to be quiet about it, or willing to go along with it."

Greene later tweeted a link to a CBS News article from 2019 about an FBI warning for consumers about security vulnerabilities involving smart TVs.

The FBI said at the time that a "television can also be a gateway for hackers to come into your home," noting that "in a worst-case scenario, they can turn on your bedroom TV's camera and microphone and silently cyberstalk you."  

Political analyst Craig Agranoff told Newsweek that "Marjorie Taylor Greene's tweet about her TV turning on by itself certainly seems bizarre, and it's hard to say for sure what she meant by it. However, it does seem to play into her previous conspiracy theories about the government spying on her.

"It's also worth noting that Greene has sort of a history of making outlandish claims that have been debunked, so it's possible that this is just another example of that."
