If perhaps you thought that Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) couldn’t possibly be any more ridiculous than she’s been since arriving in Washington, D.C. in January, a tweet she sent out on Wednesday regarding the COVID-19 pandemic may change your mind.
Here’s the tweet in question:
COVID-19 mutated into Communism a long time ago.
— Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) July 7, 2021
As HuffPost notes, Boebert’s tweet was in response to President Joe Biden’s plan to have people go door-to-door and ask Americans if they’ve been vaccinated for COVID while also sharing information on how they can receive the vaccine if they haven’t already.
But to Boebert and others in the GOP, the idea of helping save lives is a form of communism and reeks of Big Brother.
One good thing did come out of Boebert’s absurd Twitter posting: The reactions she received:
This is so dumb, it makes my brain hurt. https://t.co/hecJkoAdKZ

So if I get the vaccine I’m immune to communism?

Lauren Boebert: Too ignorant to know what Communism is, too lazy to crack a book and try to figure it out, and too gullible to realize that she is merely a political tool.
Ignorant, Lazy, and Gullible = the PERFECT RepubliQan!

Know who’s not laughing at your COVID jokes?
1,120 who died of COVID in your district.
9 of the 10 counties in CO03 with the highest death rate voted for you.
9 of the 10 counties with the highest “at least one dose” vaccination rate voted against you.
Ha ha, you’re so funny

COVID 19 is a virus. It isn’t political. We should all be on the same side on this one…the side of preserving human lives. Stop making a virus political.

So CoVid has taken over the factors of production of an economy and is having each person work based on their ability, and all will be paid based on need? Wow that is flipping amazing? So a virus jumped from Animal to human to economics? That is quite scary.

There are some positions where a comment such as this would result in an immediate drug test.
Congress should be one of them.

Your brain must be the size of a tic tac.

The good people of Boebert’s district have a chance to make her more irrelevant than she already is come next November. Let’s hope they do just that.
