During Tuesday evening’s State of the Union Address, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) proved yet again that she doesn’t belong in Congress or even among polite company, booing President Joe Biden as he spoke about the death of his son, Beau, from brain cancer which may have been caused noxious gasses released from “burn pits” in Iraq, while he was on duty there.
HuffPost notes that Biden was explaining the danger caused by burn pits when Boebert stood and shouted:
Biden was speaking about the effects of “burn pits” that “incinerated wastes of war — medical and hazard material, jet fuel, and more,” saying some veterans battle “a cancer that would put them in a flag-draped coffin. I know.”
After that remark, Boebert shouted, “You put them in, 13 of them,” referencing 13 service members who died last year in a bomb attack in Kabul. Democrats booed Boebert after the outburst.
Biden continued without acknowledging Boebert’s comment, mentioning his son, who died of brain cancer in 2015, by name.
“I don’t know for sure if the burn pit that he lived near … in Iraq, and earlier than that, in Kosovo, was the cause of his brain cancer, or the disease of so many of our troops, but I am committed to finding out everything we can,” he said.

Afterwards, Boebert tried to defend her disgusting remark:
When Biden said flag draped coffins I couldn’t stay silent. I told him directly he did it. He put 13 in there.
Our heroic servicemen and women deserve so much better.

But other Twitter users weren’t buying what Boebert was selling.
And our entire country deserves so much better than you.
Colorado you shame yourselves electing this uneducated, unintelligent, low-class trash to represent you.

I’m a veteran. So is just about every man in my family. On behalf of all of us, go fuck yourself.

Congressmen don’t heckle the Commander-in-Chief talking about the death of members of the Armed Services who defend this nation.
You’re not fit.#ResignBoebert

31 years ago this week I lost my first 2 men in combat. You don’t give a damn about any of them. You did it because you’re a child. He was talking about helping thousands of my fellow veterans and his own son who served and you threw crap all over it like a monkey. Unforgivable.

He was talking about his dead son. No wonder there is no father listed on your birth certificate. You are truly the devil’s spawn

Voters in the 3rd District of Colorado need to kick Lauren Boebert to the curb in November.
