Controversial Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has been chastised for her prejudiced remarks regarding Rep. Ilhan Omar for days (D-MN).
In a viral video, Boebert narrated a narrative in which he suggested that Omar, a Muslim, could be considered a potential suicide bomber. She claimed Omar was a member of the “Jihad Squad.”
CNN showed another video on Tuesday showing Boebert telling a similar story — with enough variances to call both of her claims into question.
“More just-see-it-for-yourself evidence today of the hate and bigotry in the Republican ranks,” CNN’s John King reported. “This new video is from a September Republican fundraiser, Boebert not only tells her elevator story, but she also calls Omar and another Muslim of Congress black-hearted and evil.”
King stated that he found the video to be so powerful because “our eyes and ears don’t lie. We see her for what she is and what she believes.”
Boebert made headlines recently after she challenged a wheelchair-bound colleague to a “sprint” to resolve their alleged feud over hiring newly crowned right-wing hero Kyle Rittenhouse as a legislative intern in a cringe-worthy remark.
Instead of the arm-wrestling contest that he had planned, the far-right fan of former President Trump recommended a footrace to settle the just-for-fun feud with Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.).
“Madison Cawthorn has some pretty big (muscles) so I’m gonna challenge him to a sprint,” Boebert said. “Let’s make it fair.”
The MAGA congressman is a frequent Twitter user, but he hasn’t mentioned the interview there, and Cawthorn, who was partially crippled in a car accident, has also remained silent about the sexist joke.
Ex-Trump aide Sebastian Gorka, who was hosting the interview with Boebert on the right-wing Newsmax network, laughed off the jab in real-time during his broadcast.
She also made headlines after she publicly criticized climate activist Greta Thunberg’s “no more blah blah blah” statements at the United Nations COP26 summit in Glasgow, Scotland.
Outside the meeting, Thunberg chastised world leaders for talking but doing nothing to solve global warming. “No more blah blah blah,” she said. “No more whatever the f*ck they’re doing inside there.”
QAnon spouting Boebert, a frequently attacked for her low-brow attempts to troll on Twitter, responded with her own take on the “tell me without telling me” meme.
Critics reacted negatively to Boebert’s tweet, with others applauding her for unwittingly spreading Thunberg’s message about the need for action.
In other words, she got owned.
Last month, Boebert slammed Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and mocked the concept of paid paternity leave.
Buttigieg and his husband Chasten Buttigieg announced their adoption of Penelope Rose and Joseph August Buttigieg and took a paternity vacation.
“Mayor Pete was on a two-month maternity — paternity, whatever the heck you want to call it — leave. The guy was gone,” Boebert claimed. “The guy was not working, because why? He was trying to figure out how to chest feed.”
