Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), a first-term Congresswoman, does not appear to have a solid grasp on the basics of the Constitution that provides for her current job. On Friday, she took to Twitter, where she spoke against the idea of rewriting the Constitution — although the Constitution has already been repeatedly rewritten! Among other examples, the Second Amendment that she seems to like so much, which provides for the right for U.S. citizens to bear arms, was not a part of the original text of the Constitution! It was an amendment. Does she care to understand what she’s talking about?

Boebert tweeted as follows:

‘Protecting and defending the Constitution doesn’t mean trying to rewrite the parts you don’t like.’

The most recently ratified amendment was enacted in 1992! That’s not that long ago — the concept of amending the Constitution is not an arcane or obsolete concept. It’s just an idea that Boebert, as a current member of the United States House of Representatives, doesn’t seem to fully grasp.

Among other recent ridiculous posts from Boebert, on Friday, she said that she is “calling on Joe Biden to order flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of Rush Limbaugh.” Limbaugh, who recently passed away, spent his career spreading vitriol across the United States through his talk radio show. Although it’s difficult to quantify due to the nature of his work, his rhetoric hurt people — as CNN summarizes, he even “appeared to approve of some forms of political violence in the immediate aftermath of the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol.” More broadly, he also “often waded into conspiratorial waters and generated controversy for hateful commentary on gender and race,” as recapped by CNN. No matter these facts, Boebert and other right-wingers have rushed to offer their support.

Recently, Boebert attracted criticism — again — after she appeared at a virtual House meeting with at least four guns prominently displayed behind her. The guns weren’t even on any kind of stand — one was sitting across the top of a row of books! With the weapons haphazardly piled onto the shelf, the spectacle was bizarre. See the weirdness below:
