GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert’s Hot Take On Fourth Of July Gets An Icy Reception

The conspiracy theory-endorsing Colorado Republican’s bluster about Joe Biden and Independence Day was met with widespread mockery.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) continues to confuse people with her tweets.

The QAnon conspiracy theory-endorsing lawmaker ― whose recent hot takes on mass shootings, April Fools’ Day and freedoms have backfired ― on Thursday attacked President Joe Biden with a post declaring he “has zero authority to cancel the 4th of July.”

It wasn’t clear what sparked Boebert’s bluster.

Some commenters speculated she was railing against coronavirus restrictions and their possible continuation later into the year.

Biden on Wednesday suggested that “to celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4th with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June. We all need to mask up until the number of cases goes down, until everyone has a chance to get their shot.”

Others thought Boebert was simply playing up the right-wing talking point decrying Democrats for “taking away” freedoms.

The post did galvanize some of her supporters. But mostly it was met with mockery:
