Bestselling author Don Winslow calls out Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) dangerous rhetoric about COVID-19 vaccines in his latest viral video.
The 64-second clip begins with Boebert’s since-deleted tweet mocking the threat posed by the highly transmissible delta variant of the virus.
“The easiest way to make the Delta variant go away is to turn off CNN,” the conspiracy theory-endorsing lawmaker tweeted last month, adding: “And vote Republican.”
The short film then shows Boebert railing against President Joe Biden’s door-to-door vaccine drive during her weekend address at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas.
“Don’t come knocking on my door with your Fauci ouchie,” she declared.
The video is cut with footage of people mourning loved ones who’ve died during the pandemic and news reports on the 600,000-plus American lives that have been lost to the disease.

Winslow, an outspoken critic of ex-President Donald Trump and his enablers, captioned the clip released Sunday with the hashtag #LaurenBoebertIsAMonster.
It’s garnered more than 2 million views on Twitter.
The short was posted before Boebert’s latest widely ridiculed tweet:
