Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-CO) 18-year-old son, Tyler, was arrested on Tuesday and is accused of dozens of crimes involving trespassing and property theft, NBC News reports.
Tyler Jay Boebert faces felony counts of criminal possession of identification documents, conspiracy to commit a felony, and more than 15 additional misdemeanor and petty offenses, the Rifle Police Department said in a Facebook post.
“This is an ongoing investigation, no further information will be released at this time,” the post said. “All suspects are considered innocent until adjudicated guilty in a court of law.”
Ironically, Tyler Boebert’s arrest came just hours after the congresswoman made the following post on social media:
As you’d expect, the karmic slapdown handed to the Boebert clan resulted in a new trending hashtag on Twitter/X: #BoebertCrimeFamily, and that spawned some truly memorable responses to Mrs. Boebert’s snarky tweet.
Former state Senator Don Coram, who unsuccessfully tried to unseat Lauren Boebert in the 3rd Congressional District in 2022, slammed the controversial congresswoman for abandoning the 3rd for the 4th in a desperate attempt to remain in office by running in a more Republican section of the state.
“When the smoke finally cleared recently, and it was evident she might not win the 3rd CD Primary election and most certainly would lose in the General election, she bolted to the 4th CD, abandoning the people of the 3rd CD to save herself,” Coram wrote in his letter to the Sterling Journal-Advocate.
“What happened to fighting for the people and what you believe in? Boebert’s record shows that she believes, ‘rules are for thee, but not for me.’ Did she truly not anticipate that her numerous embarrassing antics, spanning nearly two decades, coupled with a lackluster record of accomplishments, would go unnoticed?”
Coram also noted that while Boebert is desperately trying to rebrand herself so she can cater to voters in a new district, he efforts are little more than superficial tweaks.
But the truth is very different than the image Boebert is trying to project, Coram explains. In fact, he alleges, the congresswoman just wants to keep her cushy job
“…This move to the 4th displays prominently that Lauren’s only interest and priority is protecting her celebrity status and keeping the only good-paying job she has had in her life. Kind of ironic for somebody who rails against ‘career politicians.'”
If there’s any justice at all in this world, Boebert (who came in fifth in a recent straw poll) will lose badly come November and have to skulk back home and try to make a living working at a fast food restaurant.
As extreme winter weather grips much of the United States, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) thought it was the perfect to remind us that she needed multiple tries to pass the GED exam because her knowledge of meteorology and science is so miniscule that she cannot help but prove her ignorance whenever she tries to make one of snarky fact-free remarks.
On Sunday, Boebert posted this on Twitter/X:
How’s that for ignorance?
As NASA has noted on the subject of climate change and weather, the two are not the same:
Some people say “weather is what you get” and “climate is what you expect.” In a nutshell, “weather” refers to the more local changes in the climate we see around us, on short timescales from minutes to hours to days to weeks. Examples are familiar – rain, snow, clouds, winds, storms, heat waves and floods. “Climate” refers to longer-term averages (they may be regional or global), and can be thought of as the weather averaged over several seasons, years or decades. Climate change is harder for us to get a sense of because the timescales involved are much longer, and the impact of climate changes can be less immediate.
But trying to explain scientific facts to a willfully ignorant dunce like Ms. Boebert is a losing proposition. Despite that, plenty of social media users were only too happy to point out just how thoroughly the Colorado Republican had just owned herself.
Controversial Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R) is once again in the headlines, this time for allegedly striking her ex-husband, Jayson, and is under police investigation for the crime of domestic violence.
Roger Sollenberger of The Daily Beast reports the incident took place in a Colorado restaurant on Saturday evening.
The Silt Police Department confirmed an “active investigation” in a phone call Saturday night, but would not comment further. A Boebert aide told The Daily Beast that no one was arrested.
According to the aide, on Saturday, Jayson Boebert had called the police to the Miner’s Claim restaurant in Silt, claiming that he was a “victim of domestic violence.” The aide emphasized that Lauren Boebert denies any allegation of domestic violence on her part, and that the events as depicted in social media posts on Saturday were not accurate.
The social media reports referenced were first made via posts from the anti-Boebert Super PAC “American Muckrakers,” who spelled out exactly what is alleged to have taken place between the Boeberts.
Boebert’s reference to “moving” is her plan to change districts so the she can more easily win reelection.
An aide to the congresswoman attempted to downplay the incident, but also provided some interesting details regarding what her boss alleges happened.
In the early evening on Saturday, the aide said, it was already getting physical. Lauren Boebert had driven to her ex-husband’s house to pick up one of her sons for dinner at her mother’s house. Jayson Boebert was home, the aide said, and as Lauren Boebert and her son were leaving for the car, he tried to move in close to hug her; she put her hand on his chest to keep him back, the aide said.
As Lauren Boebert described it, the aide said, she tried again to keep him back and in the process “put her hand in his face, put her hand on his nose.”
The aide also alleges that Jayson Boebert was “being disrespectful,” “being an asshole,” and getting “lewd.”
The ex-husband sounded contrite, telling a reporter:
“I made a mistake. We both overreacted. I only want what’s best for [the] boys and I still love her very much. We both share some hurt deep down inside … It seems we just keep pushing each other further apart.”
“I want the best for her,” he added. “It’s probably just best that I remain silent.”
What neither of the Boeberts bothered to explain is that this is simply how white trash acts. Granted, it’s ugly and makes most people cringe in revulsion, but you can’t expect any better from lowlifes.
Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert wants us to believe that reason she recently had to change congressional districts is because Hollywood celebrities like Barbra Streisand and Ryan Reynolds.
Business Insider reports that Boebert made her comments during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast.
“We have to shut down the Hollywood elites who are trying to buy my current district,” Boebert began, adding:
Next came mention of Streisand and Reynolds.
Boebert made similar comments in November, posting on Twitter/X:
According to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), Streisand and Reynolds have each donated $1,500 to help defeat Boebert.
Just last week, Boebert formally announced she would be running in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District. It’s considered to be more conservative than the 3rd District which she currently represents.
Additionally, Boebert’s Democratic opponent in District 3, Adam Frisch is dramatically outpacing her in fundraising, which is the key to a successful campaign.
Frisch raised a staggering $7.7 million, according to FEC reports. Boebert has only been able to muster $2.4 million in political contributions.
