WATCH: Joe Biden Hilariously Mocks Lauren Boebert: ‘Massive Failure In Her Thinking’

President Joe Biden had a laugh at the expense of Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert during an interview on a progressive podcast, suggesting that the controversial Boebert doesn’t give much thought to the patently ridiculous things she says before she spouts off.

Speaking with Ben Meiselas of the anti-Trump Meidas Touch PAC, Biden was shown remarks Boebert made about the Inflation Reduction Act.

Meiselas told the president:

“We’re at the CS Wind turbine factory, the largest wind turbine factory in the world.”

“You were talking about the Inflation Reduction Act and jobs being brought to cities and communities across the United States of America and here in Pueblo. And the MAGA Republican representative, though, of Pueblo, Colorado, is MAGA Republican Lauren Boebert, and she gives the alternative position there on the Inflation Reduction Act.

“And she says that the Inflation Reduction Act is a massive failure. And she said that it is another con by the Democrats. If I can. I want to show you a video of MAGA Republican Lauren Boebert talking. I apologize in advance for even showing this to you.”

Cue the video of Boebert, railing on the House floor: “And it does the exact opposite of what Americans need right now! This is just another con game by the Democrats calling something one thing.”

That led Biden to comment:

“If it weren’t so important, it’d be humorous! What’d she call it, a massive failure? The only massive failure occurs in her thinking. The idea that in her own district. We’ve created so many new, good-paying jobs. And by the way, it’s generating economic growth across the board was the board. And when people get a good job, what they do is they have an opportunity to spend on things that their, basic needs for themselves. And by the way, we cut the deficit by $7 billion. The idea that she’s talking about this being a massive failure, I don’t get it. I don’t know whether they just don’t understand anything or whether or not they, in fact, are.”

The president added:

“I hope she comes back here and tells the people in this factory the largest wind turbine factory in the world, that this is a massive stimulus. So just to invite her to come back. Come back and tell the folks back home. This is a massive failure. Tell the folks back home that all we’ve done to generate economic growth is not worth it. And I’d like to ask explain how she supports not taxing billionaires more than 8%. I have trouble explaining that again. I probably shouldn’t waste my time trying to.”

The latest polls from Boebert’s district suggest she’s in big trouble come November, as her challenger, Adam Frisch, is raising tons of campaign money and polling well against the incumbent. Here’s hoping that means Boebert will soon be a former member of Congress.

Lauren Boebert Gets Schooled By Social Security Official After Proving Her Ignorance Of Math

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) once again proved her seemingly unlimited ignorance on Wednesday during the questioning of an official from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

According to HuffPost, Boebert chastised the SSA official and suggested that employees for the agency are lazy.

Boebert told Oren “Hank” McKnelly, an executive counselor for the SSA, that the agency was allowing “delinquent employees to sit on their sofas at home” instead of “actually getting to work and doing their jobs” as she took aim at telework policies during a House Oversight Committee hearing.

“This is absolutely unacceptable,” said Boebert, known for her bizarre behavior in and outside Washington, D.C.

McNeely told the congresswoman that all employees who work from home are monitored.

That led Boebert to ask, “Then why is the backlogs for Social Security applicants increased from 41,000 to 107,000?”

McNeely replied, “Because we’ve been historically underfunded for a number of years now.”

The congresswoman tried to be snarky, telling the official:

“I don’t think you’re underfunded. You’re funded at the Nancy Pelosi levels, at the democrat levels. We just continued that same funding.”

McNeely dropped the hammer on Boebert by using simple facts to refute what she’d just said.

“So I’d say we’d have an increase of over 8 million beneficiaries over the last 10 years. At the same time, we experienced our lowest work staffing levels at the end of FY 22. That’s a math problem. I mean, that is a problem. If you have those workloads increasing and you don’t have the staff to take care of those workloads, you’re going to have the backlogs that you’re talking about, representative.”

The video, which has more than 2.4 million views in less than 24 hours, also drew plenty of comments from other social media users.

GOP WTF?!

Lauren Boebert Booted From Denver Theater For ‘Causing A Disturbance’

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) was kicked out of a Denver theater over the weekend for “causing a disturbance,” including vaping during a performance of the “Beetlejuice” musical, singing during the performance, and attempting to record portions of the event.

According to The Denver Post, Boebert and another patron were asked to leave the musical after being warned during intermission about their behavior.

The incident report states that after receiving the intermission warning, about five minutes into the second act security officials received “another complaint about the patrons being loud and at the time (they) were recording.” Taking pictures or recording is not permitted at shows.

The report quotes one of the ushers: “They told me they would not leave. I told them that they need to leave the theater and if they do not, they will be trespassing. The patrons said they would not leave. I told them I would (be) going to get Denver Police. They said go get them.”

Boebert’s office confirmed that the congresswoman did indeed get the heave-ho from “Beetlejuice,” with Drew Sexton remarking:

“I can confirm the stunning and salacious rumors: in her personal time, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is indeed a supporter of the performing arts (gasp!) and, to the dismay of a select few, enthusiastically enjoyed a weekend performance of ‘Beetlejuice.'”

Boebert is running for reelection in 2024, and recent polls have shown she has a very good chance of losing to her Democratic opponent, Adam Frisch.

An early poll shows incumbent U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert and Adam Frisch, the Democrat who came close to unseating the Republican in 2022, in a tie for the seat amid current political conditions.

If the 2024 election were held today with the two candidates, 45% of voters would choose Frisch and 45% would choose Boebert, according to findings from a poll released Tuesday.

Ted Cruz Flayed Online After Falling For Fake Pic Of Shark Swimming Down A Flooded Highway In California

Despite holding a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University and law degree from Harvard, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) couldn’t resist proving once again that he isn’t the sharpest knife in the proverbial drawer and will literally believe just about anything he sees on social media.

The latest humiliation for Cruz came in the form of a posting on Twitter which purported to show a shark swimming down Highway 405 in downtown Los Angeles, which has been hit hard by flooding from Tropical Storm Hilary, according to Mediaite.

The 2023 version of the photo came from Dan Katz with Barstool Sports, whose X handle is “Big Cat.” He posted, “Friend of mine out in LA just took this picture on the 405. And yes, all news and media outlets you have permission to use this. Wild.”

As you can see from the fact check below the photo, it has been circulating online ever since 2011 and also showed up in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Cruz later added a note after he’d managed to let the internet know that he’ll believe just about anything he runs across online.

Be sure to note the wording: I’m told this is a joke. Translation: Cruz cannot even accept the truth when it’s staring him in the face and he has access to Google. Why? Probably because he’s a damn idiot with an inflated ego that doesn’t allow him to admit he made a major mistake.

Let the mockery begin.

Friendly tip for Ted Cruz: Delete your Twitter account and stay off the internet.

Jamie Raskin Uses Jim Jordan’s Own Words To Prove His ‘Weaponization Committee’ Is A Sham

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) got his own words played back to him during a hearing of the House select committee on the “weaponization” of the federal government, and the quote makes it perfectly clear that the real reason for the committee is to benefit Donald Trump and help him get reelected in 2024.

Those words (and a video of them) were brought to light be Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), who told Jordan:

“Relaxing with a friendly interviewer, Chairman Jordan gave the game away entirely, ‘All of those things need to be investigated, just so you have the truth,’ he said. ‘Plus, that will hope frame up the 2024 race, when hope, and I think President Trump is going to run, and we need to make sure that he wins.'”

The Maryland Democrat added:

“We need to make sure that he wins. This call to arms for the 2024 election was met with wild applause from the CPAC audience. I urge every member of the subcommittee to go and watch the interview.”

Earlier in the day, Raskin also exposed the Republicans for their lawlessness.

“They’ve proven that they will weaponize the government not just against other parties, but against anyone who refuses to bend to the will and win of one Donald Trump, whether that’s a lifelong Republican state election official, like Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, foreign head of states like president Volodymyr Zelenskyy, or a political movement, like Black Lives Matter, a once-close personal friend and ally of Trump’s, like his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for many years, or even a sycophantic Trump appointee, a lifelong Republican like attorney general William Barr. If these people break from the habits of lying and lawlessness that define life as a camp follower in the cult of Donald Trump, if the weaponize campaign isn’t partisan, it’s entirely political.

“It’s got an overriding electoral focus. You know what it is. It’s all about restoring Donald Trump, the twice-impeached former president, to the office he lost by 7 million votes in 2020 and tried to steal back in a political coup and violent insurrection against our constitutional order on Jan. 6, 2021.”
