Since the day she first stepped into the House of Representatives, Lauren Boebert has continually proved that she doesn’t belong there. She tweeted out Nancy Pelosi’s location during the insurrection. She has regularly bypassed the metal detectors meant to keep those in the capitol safe. And she recently made racist stories about Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Most people would say that Boebert is hurting the GOP with her actions. But Donald Trump wouldn’t say that. In fact, he put out a press statement on Wednesday giving the Colorado Rep. his full endorsement.
The former president wrote, “Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has done a fantastic job in her first term representing Colorado’s Third District. She is a fearless leader, a defender of the America First Agenda, and a fighter against the Loser RINOs and Radical Democrats.”

Trump’s missive continued:
“She will continue to be tough on Crime, strong on Borders, and always protect our under-siege Second Amendment. Lauren has my Complete and Total Endorsement for her reelection!”
The GOP can expect many more of these kinds of endorsements going forward. Trump will happily continue to promote the candidates who supports his toxic brand of politics while pushing out those with any shred of integrity.
