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:
The president added:
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.
