Congress Foreign Policy WTF?!

Lauren Boebert Thinks It’s Funny That Afghans Died Falling Off A U.S. Military Plane

Even though former President Donald Trump was in favor of a full withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and sent then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet with members of the Taliban in Doha, Qatar in November of last year, most Republicans in Congress have been vocal in their criticism of the fact that President Joe Biden has done exactly what his predecessor planned to do.

But perhaps the most disgusting remarks about what’s taking place in Afghanistan came from Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who seems to think it’s funny that some Afghans died as they attempted to climb aboard an American military plane as it took off. Several of them fell off the plane and were killed, Newsweek reports:

“Locals near Kabul airport claim that three young men who were holding themselves tightly in the tires of an airplane fell on top of people’s houses. One of the locals confirmed this and said that the fall of these people made a loud and terrifying noise.”

Boebert saw the footage and responded with this tweet:

Perhaps this shouldn’t surprise us. After all, this is the same Lauren Boebert who recently compared herself to Moses while speaking at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit and bragged that she was fighting against communism on God’s behalf.

But despite her close connection with the Almighty, most people were not pleased by her tasteless tweet about people dying in Afghanistan:

There’s really only one word that adequately describes Lauren Boebert: Evil.
