Boebert’s Personal Twitter Account Locked After Threating Tweets
Lauren Boebert has certainly made an impression during her first weeks in the House. The freshman Rep from Rifle, Colorado, who once owned a restaurant where the servers were equipped with holsters with loaded guns, Boebert has used her social media accounts to push the QAnon conspiracy theories in which she deeply believes and to show off her beloved Glock, which she insisted she had the right to bring to the House floor.
Boebert, who stood on that same House floor on Wednesday and incorporated the word “bullcrap” in her one-minute rant against impeaching her beloved Donald Trump, also set off the new magnetic sensors when she entered, refused to be searched, causing some confusion as to whether or not she was carrying that Glock as the House heard statements from both sides of the impeachment arguments.

Twitter users called for Boebert to be jailed last week after she used the platform to disclose details of Nancy Pelosi’s security while a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol specifically looking for both Pelosi and Vice President Mike Pence. Some of Boebert’s Democratic colleagues added their voice to that chorus, including Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell.
Like any citizen who has committed a crime, Lauren Boebert has the right to remain silent. I suggest that she use it. https://t.co/GV00rKzcw6

Unrelated to her behavior on the House floor, Boebert is now getting the same punishment as her Dear Leader after tweeting incendiary remarks during the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol: her personal account has been suspended until Inauguration Day for “violating the Twitter rules”, although she did not share which specific rules she’s accused of violating when she posted the screenshot on her Instagram account.
“America, land of the free?” she wrote underneath the photo.
Boebert’s government account is still active, and she has continued to tweet against Speaker Pelosi in the days after the unsuccessful assassination attempt on her life.
