United States Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) recently accused the media of taking her words out of context to make her look bad.

But a secretly recorded video of Greene speaking to a room full of her supporters provides a glimpse into how she really feels about serving in the House of Representatives.

First, Greene recalled that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) penalized her for refusing to wear a mask on the House floor, resulting in "over $100,000 in mask fines." Greene noted that she did not "care" about the financial punishment as the audience began laughing.

Greene, who is seeking a second term in the November midterm elections following her victory in May's Republican primary, then admitted to the crowd that she regrets becoming a lawmaker on Capitol Hill.

"It's a horrible job. I don't want to be paid for it to begin with," she remarked of her taxpayer-funded six-figure salary.

"It really is a bad job," she added. "I don't know what I was thinking."
