Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) was reminded of her many hateful anti-LGBTQ tweets Sunday after she expressed sympathy for the victims of a mass shooting at the Club Q nightclub that left five dead and 18 injured.
“The news out of Colorado Springs is absolutely awful. This morning the victims & their families are in my prayers. This lawless violence needs to end and end quickly.”
Club Q, it should be noted, is a gay and lesbian club that has hosted drag shows. Such shows have been repeatedly attacked rhetorically by Boebert and other right-wing Republicans who have wrongly accused the LGBTQ community of “grooming” children for sexual purposes.
Boebert was quickly hit with reminders of the disgustingly bigoted things she’s posted on Twitter in the past about LGBTQ Americans.
Today’s entrant in the category of Biggest Hypocrite of the Year is none other than our favorite clueless congresswoman, Lauren Boebert (R-CO), who declared Thursday (and again on Friday) that she had been reelected, even though a mandatory recount will be done because the race between her and her Democratic opponent, Adam Frisch, was separated by just a few hundred votes.
On Thursday, Boebert released this statement:
She’s claiming victory even though she raised holy hell when Joe Biden was declared the victor over Donald Trump in the 2020 election. She has even suggested that the violence on January 6, 2021 was justified because Trump had the election “stolen” from him. He didn’t, of course, but Lauren didn’t want to miss a chance to kiss Trump’s fat ass in order to prove her undying loyalty to the Orange Menace.
After Frisch conceded the race on Friday, Boebert posted this:
Work? Is that a damn joke! Lauren Boebert has done nothing over the past two years except tweet, whine, hold press conferences, and manage to lose her failing restaurant, Shooters Grill, which has gone under and was heavily in debt when it closed.
Shooters was Boebert’s pride and joy, because she claimed it was proof that hard work pays off in the United States and you don’t need a college degree to be successful. Success, however, is a foreign concept to this woman. She had never succeeded at anything, and the fact that she barely won a second term in a district that has voted Republican since 2010 is a damning indictment of her first term in office.
Lauren Boebert is a grifter and a failure. No wonder she worships Donald Trump.
According to many Republicans, abortion is murder and needs to be declared illegal across the country, no matter the reason a woman may be trying to terminate her pregnancy, with some on the right even going so far as to say there should be no exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
That hardline position is leaving many right-wingers in a difficult position when it comes to Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker, who says he’s opposed to abortion yet reportedly paid for at least two women he impregnated to terminate their pregnancies.
Such was the case with a Georgia man who was interviewed by Jason Selvig of The Good Liars.
The man — who was wearing a pro-Trump cap and told Selvig that he did indeed support Walker — was asked:
The man replied:
Selvig then asked:
The man responded:
Once again, Selvig pressed:
The man attempted to change the topic to Walker’s opponent, incumbent Georgia Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock:
But Selvig had the perfect comeback:
“But, I mean, totally unrelated to Raphael Warnock, if Herschel Walker paid for an abortion, and you think abortion is murder, does that not make him a murderer?”
That led the man to tell Selvig:
“You know, it’s according to what you want to call murder. I mean, if you see somebody breaking into your house and you kill him, is that murder? If you accidentally run over somebody—”
Selvig asked yet again:
The man replied:
“So that, by definition, if the allegations are true, he was a murderer, but that’s okay with you because he repented.”
The man continued to twist himself into pretzel shape, replying:
Spoken like a true fake Christian who has either never read the Bible or read it and didn’t understand a word about forgiveness, redemption, and sin.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) allegedly hired an illegal immigrant to help coordinate a flight of migrants from Texas to Florida and then to Martha’s Vineyard last month.
The Miami Herald spoke with a man named Emmanuel who says he was paid $700 to recruit migrants who were willing to travel from San Antonio to Massachusetts.
Paying someone who is in the United States illegally is prohibited in Florida.
According to The Herald:
[Emmanuel] was recruited by Perla Huerta, a 43-year-old former U.S. Army counterintelligence agent working for Vertol Systems Company — which has been paid more than $1.5 million by the DeSantis administration to execute the [migrant relocation operation]. Emmanuel ended up receiving three cash payments totaling $700 from Huerta for his work on behalf of DeSantis’ relocation program, he told the Miami Herald.
Text messages reviewed by the Herald corroborate his account.
Such compensation would appear to be a blemish on the governor’s public stance against the hiring of undocumented immigrants, and could present a compliance issue with an immigration law that DeSantis campaigned on in 2018, championed as governor in 2020 and continues to tout as he runs for reelection in November.
DeSantis has been accused of using the flight of migrants to garner media attention at a time when he is seeking reelection and a possible run for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.
According to the governor, he arranged the flight because:
DeSantis is also facing a lawsuit filed by the migrants he tricked into boarding the plane. They accuse him of false imprisonment.
As the 2022 midterm elections draw closer by the day, President Joe Biden continues to remind voters that while Republicans love to brag about the things they’ve done for them over the past two years, the reality is starkly different than what they’re claiming.
At a campaign even on Thursday, HuffPost reports, Biden pointed to the massive infrastructure bill passed by Congress earlier this year that many in the GOP are now trying to appropriate as their own, even though the vast majority of them voted against it.
The $1.2 trillion bill to improve roads, bridges, ports, water systems, high-speed internet and more passed with the help of 13 Republicans in the House and 19 in the Senate.
And that’s when Biden used a hilarious impression of those same Republicans who had voted one way and then glommed onto it when it became clear their constituents supported the measure:
Dark Brandon is back:
Thursday night’s comments, including his voice-switching gimmick, are part of a more recent pattern from Biden, a feisty side that supporters have taken to calling “Dark Brandon.”
That refers to the “Brandon” nickname once used as an insult against the president by conservatives, now coopted by his supporters on the left:
