Lauren Boebert: Ukraine Needs To Be ‘Liberated’ From Oppression, But So Does Canada

For some time now, it’s been painfully obvious that Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) isn’t exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, and that her main “talent” as it were is saying stupid shit that leaves people shaking their heads in disbelief.

As you’d expect, the Colorado Republican spoke at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) convention in Orlando, Florida this weekend, but it was something she said after she’d finished her speech that set off a firestorm of mockery on Twitter.

Speaking with Fox Nation hosts Pete Hegseth and Kayleigh McEnany, Boebert was asked about the situation in Ukraine, where Russian troops have invaded and are now advancing on the capital city of Kyiv. She remarked:

“I pray for Ukraine and I wish them the best. They have a great president right now, who really said clearly, live free or die. He said, ‘I don’t need a ride, give me ammunition. The fight is right here.'”

Hey, that’s actually a great statement. Bobert deserves credit for that. We all wish the people of Ukraine the very best as they endure an attack from the Russian military.

But it was what Boebert said next that completely ruined her previous good work:

“But we also have neighbors to the north who need freedom and who need to be liberated and we need that right here at home.”

Apparently, Boebert thinks Canada needs “freedom” because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dared to clear a convoy of trucks that had been parked on a bridge leading to the United States. The reason for the so-called “Freedom Convoy” was supposedly because a tiny percentage of Canadian truck drivers (less than 10%) don’t want to get vaccinated for COVID, so they decided to punish the rest of the country to satisfy their own selfishness.

Let the mockery begin:
