Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) launched an online attack against Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg on Thursday and wound up getting more than she bargained for when social media users lit her up in spectacular fashion for her cheap shot.
Hogg noted that the fencing placed around the U.S. Capitol after the January 6 riots that left five dead only addressed part of the threat to lawmakers because Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) are still serving in Congress:
They can put up all the fencing around the capitol the real threats of @mtgreenee and @laurenboebert will still be inside until @GOPLeader takes a stand.

Boebert responded to Hogg with this disgusting tweet:
David, please. We all saw how tough you were when questioned face to face.
Give your keyboard a rest, child. https://t.co/DDnpmkyfIS

That was all it took for social media users to slam Boebert for attacking a young man who has worked diligently to bring the issue of gun violence to the forefront:
Is there a contest along the GOP freshmen to see which one of you can be the shittiest human being?

.@davidhogg111 had more maturity, insight & integrity than you when he was still in diapers. Child.

You’re a United States Congresswoman attacking a “child”? Nice look. Don’t you have a real job to do, that we the taxpayers are paying for? The people of Colorado’s 3rd deserve so much better than an overpaid Twitter troll.

The big difference between you and @davidhogg111 is that when HIS institution was attacked, he didn’t tweet out the location of potential victims.

Boebert and Greene both need to be expelled from Congress. And if that doesn’t happen, they should be denied any committee assignments and shunned by their colleagues.
