Lauren Boebert Gets Reminded Of Her Past After Agreeing To Appear At GOP ‘Hot Girl Summer’ Event

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) got a heavy dose of online trolling after it was announced Saturday that she would be appearing at something called “Hot Girl Summer” which is being sponsored by the Washington, D.C. Young Republicans.

The announcement appeared on Twitter.

As you can see, Ginger Gaetz, the wife of controversial Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz, will also be one of the “hot girls” in attendance on June 26.

Last September, Boebert made national headlines when she and a date were kicked out of a Denver theater performance of a “Beetlejuice” musical for vaping and groping each other in full view of children in the audience.

The “Hot Girl Summer” tweet was soon deluged with comments, many of which many of which referenced Boebert’s actions at that Denver theater.

Democrat Swats Down His GOP Colleagues By Turning One Of Their Favorite Insults Back On Them

Democratic Congressman Jim McGovern (MA) is fed up with his GOP House colleagues who defend convicted felon Donald Trump yet happily attack Hunter Biden, who was found guilty Tuesday of three federal gun crimes.

According to Mediaite, McGovern used the verdict against President Joe Biden’s son as the jumping off point for a larger argument.

The Massachusetts lawmaker juxtaposed Republicans’ reaction to Trump’s criminal conviction last month to Democrats’ response to Hunter Biden’s conviction on Tuesday. Trump was found guilty on 34 counts of falsifying business records and the president’s son was found guilty on three gun-related charges. In the former instance, Republicans slammed the verdict and even claimed President Joe Biden was behind the state charges in New York. Meanwhile, regarding his son, the president said he accepts the outcome of his son’s trial.

McGovern began by contrasting Hunter Biden’s actions after he was found guilty with Trump’s constant whining since a jury convicted him last month.

“Did Hunter Biden walk out of the courthouse this morning and slam the judge or the prosecutors? Did he claim some vast conspiracy to weaponize the legal system against him? No, he did not. In a statement on the verdict, President Biden said, ‘I will accept the outcome of this case and will continue to respect the judicial process.'”

He then added, “Now I ask, after the verdict this morning, how can any Republican in their right mind argue that the Biden administration is weaponizing the DOJ to hurt Republicans and to help Democrats? They just convicted the president’s own son, to say nothing of the fact that the Department of Justice is currently trying a Democratic senator and has indicted a Democratic member of this House. I mean, do Republicans still believe that President Biden is weaponizing the justice system? Because if he is, he’s sure doing a lousy job.”

So who, McGovern wondered, is truly suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome?

“And as usual, the only Trump derangement syndrome going on around here is on the other side of the aisle. I mean, people are saying that Biden orchestrated the conviction of his own son in order to justify the criminal charges against Trump. That is how you think when you are in a cult. So, here’s the bottom line. Republicans just can’t wrap their heads around the idea that their presidential candidate, your presumptive nominee, is a convicted felon. That is not the result of a sham process or some vast conspiracy by the Biden administration. That is a result of the truth. And these attacks on our justice system have to come to a stop.”

Say what you want about Democrats, but at least their candidate for president isn’t a felon who’s facing a prison sentence next month.

And say what you want about Hunter Biden, but at least he’s admitted his mistakes and is working to change his life for the better. That’s something Donald Trump isn’t capable of doing.

Republicans Mocked For Claiming It Takes ‘Your Whole Paycheck’ To Eat At The Cheesecake Factory

Did you know that if you decide to have lunch or dinner at the Cheesecake Factory in New York, your tab will likely use up your entire paycheck?

You didn’t know that? There’s a good reason you didn’t: Because it’s a blatant lie.

And yet, that lie is being peddled by House Republicans on social media, with a posting from the House Judiciary Committee.

So let’s take a few minutes to deconstruct and debunk the numerous lies in that tweet.

Flying to New York affordably is still possible, with a fare from Atlanta to the Big Apple costing less than $150. According to Expedia, you can do so for as little as $111.

As for getting robbed in Times Square, the latest crime figures from New York show that major crimes are down, with nearly 500 fewer major crimes in April of this year when compared to 2023.

Hotels overrun with illegal aliens? Also a lie, with New York City Mayor Eric Adams issuing an eviction order for such residences in January.

That brings us to the cost of eating at the Cheesecake Factory in New York, where a quick look at the menu shows you can have a Bistro Burger for $17.95, which is certainly not the average American’s pay for the month or even for a week.

It didn’t take long for online mockery to reach a fever pitch.

Lauren Boebert Pitches A Hissy Fit When Debate Moderator Asks About Her ‘Beetlejuice’ Incident

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) got upset when a debate moderator asked about her Beetlejuice theater groping incident which took place in September of last year.

Channel 9’s Kyle Clark wondered if Boebert was ready to apologize to service workers she allegedly harassed and verbally abused when she was removed from the theater.

“Did you apologize for lying to voters about what you did that night and the disrespect you showed to service workers,” he asked. “What specifically were you apologizing for?”

Boebert began to stutter and finally managed to respond, “I don’t believe there was disrespect. Things were absolutely taken out of context.”

Clark pressed again.

“There’s a video of your interactions with service workers.”

The congresswoman then attacked Clark.

“Well, it has been reported that I flipped someone off and I did not. I think it has been very mischaracterized. I’m apologizing for you, Kyle Clark, for getting video and releasing that and people seeing it in a very private moment.”

“But you just recently had an interview with City Cast Denver about how disgusting it is to record someone without their knowledge!”

When Clark turned to other candidates, Boebert continued to rage, but he simply ignored her.

Here’s hoping Lauren Boebert is voted out of Congress in November and goes back to being an unemployed loser.

‘Red Flags’ From Tuesday’s Georgia Primary Show Marjorie Taylor Greene Could Lose In November

Even though she easily won the Republican primary in Georgia yesterday, there are some major “red flags” that suggest Georgia GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is vulnerable and could well lose in November’s general election.

That’s what noted political experts told Newsweek, noting that if Greene faces a challenge from a Democrat who can raise the necessary campaign funds the controversial Republican could find herself looking for work in 2025.

 T.J. McCormack, a Republican strategist and commentator, “Given Greene’s recent bizarre behavior, this might have been an opportunity to steal a win.”

Among the biggest concerns for Greene are her campaign finance reports, which show that she doesn’t have as much cash on hand as an incumbent should this close to November.

Denny Salas, a political strategist and senior vice president at New York-based Gotham Government Relations, said there are indeed some “red flags” for Greene, who has raised $5 million but only has about $1 million left with six months until the election.

“Her high spending rate, or ‘burn rate,’ could allow a Democratic opponent to defeat her in November’s general election,” Salas said. “While raising $5 million is impressive, blowing through most of it already is concerning.

“So, while not having any Republican opponents made her primary easy, her massive campaign spending suggests she may be vulnerable if Democrats find a well-funded candidate to run against her.”

Former president Donald Trump could also wind up dragging down Greene and other Republicans seeking reelection. Or vice versa, Jay Oliver, LI News radio host and political commentator warned.

“Republicans are in a tough spot whether to go against her with supporter Donald Trump by her side or join other Democrats with total condemnation.”
“In a Republican redrawn district to favor the GOP, how much control of this ‘loose cannon’ will be meaningful to help Trump in November? That will be the key.”

Greene’s latest bizarre accusation is that President Joe Biden and the Justice Department wanted to assassinate Trump when they raided his Mar-a-Lago resort to search for classified documents he failed to return upon leaving the White House.

According to Greene, the fact that FBI agents had the authorization to use lethal force during the raid is proof that Biden wanted Trump eliminated, The Independent reports.

“The Biden DOJ and FBI were planning to assassinate [president] Trump and gave the green light,” the Georgia representative wrote on X Tuesday evening.

The FBI quickly promptly swatted down Greene’s absurd conspiracy theory in an official statement.

“The FBI followed standard protocol in this search as we do for all search warrants, which includes a standard policy statement limiting the use of deadly force,” the statement read.

“No one ordered additional steps to be taken and there was no departure from the norm in this matter,” it added.

What will become of Greene? That remains unclear, but the entire county would be better off if she goes down to defeat come November. After all, we already have enough morons in Congress.
