Like many members of today’s Republican Party, Rep. Lauren Boebert finds it completely acceptable and normal to be an ignorant, bigoted, and racist ‘buffoon.’
At one of her latest grifting events, Boebert suggested suggested Rep. Ilhan Omar was a threat to blow up the US Capitol Building. Boebert even referred to Rep. Omar as part of the ‘jihad squad.’
Ms. Omar fired back at the bigoted buffoon and denied the elevator encounter ever happened:
It is not the first time that Boebert has made controversial remarks about the progressive Democrat. Earlier this month, Boebert defended her colleague Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) before he was ultimately censured by the House for tweeting a video that depicted him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in an animated video.
During her speech on the House floor, she pivoted away from Gosar at one point to talk about Omar in addition to Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.)
“The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid her husband, and not her brother husband, the other one, over a million dollars in campaign funds,” Boebert said at the time, referring to Omar. “This member is allowed on the Foreign Affairs Committee while praising terrorists.”
