Critics Tell GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert What To Do With Her ‘Prayers’ After Boulder Shooting

"This may be the worst ever 'thoughts and prayers' message in the aftermath of a mass shooting," one Twitter user hit back at the pro-gun Colorado Republican.

Twitter users weren’t buying pro-gun Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) “prayers” following Monday’s mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, that killed 10 people.

The QAnon-endorsing lawmaker said her prayers were with everyone “affected by this tragedy” and asked “God be with us as we make sense of this senseless violence, and may we unify and not divide during this time.”

Critics questioned the sincerity of Boebert’s statements, citing her gun-themed eatery, her prominent display of firearms during a virtual House committee hearing last month, and her use of a gunshot sound to conclude an ad attacking Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
