Lauren Boebert’s First Week Becomes Embarrassing Disaster

In a series of tweets on Thursday, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) reacted strongly against the inauguration of President Joe Biden. Among other points, she complained that National Guard troops who have been in D.C. have faced vetting and blamed Biden himself for the move, but the vetting of these troops began before he was sworn in. Furthermore, at present, Joe Biden is the commander-in-chief of the United States of America — so who else are National Guard troops supposed to loyally follow? Commanding the troops is literally Biden’s job!

Boebert also, rather predictably, complained about the executive actions that Biden took on his first day as president. Complaints about executive orders seem to fall into the same category as concern about the debt and deficit among Republicans — with someone doing their bidding leading the White House, the issues fade away, but when a Democrat obtains power, then suddenly Republicans are apparently very concerned about executive overreach and the like. The hypocritical concern is a spectacle — Boebert, of course, did not mention the 144 people who received clemency from ex-President Donald Trump during his final hours in power. Neither did she mention the many executive actions that Trump himself took at many points of his administration.

On Thursday, Boebert also complained about anti-Biden left-wing protests that unfolded the previous night. Referencing Biden’s insistence during a pre-election presidential debate that “Antifa” is an “idea,” Boebert said that “Someone should let Joe Biden know that an “idea” was breaking windows, graffitiing buildings, blocking streets and burning our flag last night.” Biden has repeatedly and unequivocally condemned violence in all its forms — pretending like Biden’s observation that “Antifa” is an “idea” means that he’s okay with ignoring violence is just ridiculous. In reality, the conservative idea that there’s some kind of secretly centralized “Antifa” organization plotting violence across the country is a delusion, and that’s what Biden was addressing.

Meanwhile, Boebert also complained with a bit more specificity about one of Biden’s first-day actions. On Wednesday, the newly inaugurated president moved to rejoin the Paris climate deal, which Trump abandoned during his administration. Boebert complained that “America shouldn’t spend a penny on this unconstitutional treaty unless it is ratified by the U.S. Senate.”
