Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is a gun-worshiping member of the GOP who was elected to Congress a couple of months ago and has been busy trying to prove that she’s the most clueless member of her party, perhaps even surpassing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who once said the Sept. 11 attacks didn’t actually happen.
In an effort to vault past Greene, Boebert appeared on Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News show Saturday evening to complain about security measures added at the U.S. Capitol since the Jan. 6 insurrection that left five dead when thousands of pro-Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building.
According to Boebert, there’s no threat to the Capitol now:
“No one on the outside can get into the Capitol, it is only staffers and members of Congress who are allowed at the people’s house. At our nation’s Capital. This is complete bonkers that we are keeping people out of the U.S. Capitol. There’s clearly not a threat. There was nothing that happened on March 4.”
Clearly not a threat? As Newsweek notes, that’s not what security officials believe:
“This week, authorities in D.C. ramped up security measures over fears of another Capitol attack on March 4. Despite countless failed QAnon predictions, some supporters of the conspiracy theory believed that Thursday was the day that ex-President Donald Trump would be inaugurated again.
“QAnon supporters, typically conservative Trump fans, believed that the ‘storm’ would see the ex-president order mass arrests and executions of satanic ‘deep state’ pedophilies on January 20. When Biden took office, some believers shifted the date to March 4, when presidents were inaugurated pre-1933. Then the day arrived and nothing happened.”
However, Boebert was just warming up, and what she said next completely killed what was left of irony:
“The Democrats are obsessed with conspiracy theories and they won’t let them go. We have a border fence around the people’s house, with miles of razor wire. And Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi wants to keep it up.”
Really?! Democrats are obsessed with conspiracy theories, Congresswoman QAnon? How’s that psychological projection working for you, Lauren?
Also, let’s not forget that it was Boebert who tweeted out the location of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during the riots:
“The freshman congressman’s remarks come less than two months after she faced calls for her resignation after tweeting out Pelosi’s location during the Capitol riot. ‘Speaker has been removed from the chambers,’ she wrote on the day of the attack, as lawmakers took cover in secure locations.”
Could it be any clearer that Rep. Boebert is completely unfit for the office she was elected to?
