What does MTG stand for?

MTG are the initials of Marjorie Taylor Greene, who was elected to the US House of Representatives in 2020 as a representative of Georgia’s 14 District. The initialism MTG is popularly used as a short way of referring to her (including sometimes by Greene herself).

Greene is known as a controversial figure who frequently draws criticism for her outspoken support of the conspiracy theory known as QAnon and other far-right positions, including many based on claims proven to be false or misleading.

The abbreviation of Greene’s name follows the popular practice of abbreviating the name of other notable political figures, such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).

In pop culture, the abbreviation MTG is also sometimes used for the game Magic: The Gathering (whose abbreviation is also styled as MtG and M:tG).
