According to Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, if any form of gun control such as an assault weapons ban passes both houses of Congress, it will result in the complete downfall of the United States, lead to the imposition of a tyrannical government, and Americans will even begin eating their own dogs.
And you thought she couldn’t possibly get any dumber.
During an appearance on right-wing Newsmax, Boebert told former Trump administration flunky Sebastian Gorka:
Gorka nodded in agreement and Boebert continued:
“You know, here in America we have gourmet treats for puppies. We have these amazing groomers for dogs. Well in Venezuela they eat the dogs. And it started because they don’t have firearms. They do not have a way to protect themselves, to defend themselves from a tyrannical government.”
What in the hell does that even mean? They don’t have guns in Venezuela, so they eat their dogs? So any country that has gun control (i.e. England, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden) automatically becomes a nation of dog eaters? That’s so absurd that it makes my teeth ache.
It didn’t take long before Twitter lit up with mockery aimed directly at Boebert.
