Gun-Toting GOP House Freshman Did Nothing To Defend Capitol, Fellow Members During Riot

Lauren Boebert, the recently sworn-in Colorado Republican representative who’s made a big show of strutting around her restaurant and Washington, D.C., with a pistol strapped to her leg, did absolutely nothing to either defend the U.S. Capitol against the Donald Trump-incited rioters last Wednesday, nor did she attempt to help safeguard her Congressional colleagues.

In fact at one point the Second Amendment champion actually tweeted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had been evacuated from the House floor, essentially telling the marauding mob to look elsewhere in the Capitol if they were trying to capture her.

On Tuesday Boebert swore that she “won’t be backing down from this election integrity fight.”

Here’s another pre-riot tweet that the freshman lawmaker still has yet to scrub from her social media. In it she literally is standing shoulder-to-shoulder with insurrection co-leader Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and pledging that “On January 6, we’re both going to be fighting for freedom!”

That bravado quickly dissipated when she learned that thousands of Trump supporters, of which she is one, were on the Capitol grounds, scaling walls, smashing windows and doors, assaulting Capitol Police officers and threatening to hang Vice President Mike Pence.

A little more than two hours later the brave Boebert reassured her followers that she was unharmed. “My staff and I are safe and in an undisclosed location.”

About 15 minutes later she posted a photo showing her signing her name to the certification document that confirmed President-elect Joe Biden as the country’s 46th president. So much for not backing down.
