Lyin’ Lauren Boebert Falsely Declares Zero COVID-19 in Texas Since Restrictions Were Lifted
Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) on Wednesday defended her and her colleague’s objections to wearing masks inside the halls of Congress and then falsely claimed that there have been no COVID-19 deaths in Texas in the last two months during an interview on Dr. Gina Primetime.
Boebert’s claim is a total pants-on-fire lie.
According to the Texas Department of State Health Services‘ “COVID-19 Total Fatalities by County” matrix, more than 3,400 residents have died of COVID-19 since March 2nd.
“Ya know, I’m really enjoying telling Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi [D-CA] to ‘Kiss my mask‘ though. Yesterday, [Representatives] Thomas Massie [R-KY], Madison Cawthorne [R-NC], Brian Mast [R-FL], Beth Van Duyne [R-TX], and several other colleagues joined me in refusing to wear masks on the House floor,” Boebert recalled to Real America’s Voice anchor Gina Loudon.
“Thomas Massie and I both got warnings, and both of our letters ended up in the same exact place ironically: the trash. Leftists won’t even listen to the bureaucrats at the CDC, and it just goes to show that this party’s ‘Follow the Science’ slogan is a total joke, just like this entire administration, just like the entire Democrat Party,” Boerbert seethed.
“They want to tell you to listen to science and listen to data and facts, but they haven’t done that for more than a year. Two weeks to slow the spread turned into communism really, really quickly,” the Congresswoman added before comparing mask mandates to Nazi Germany. “Now it’s, ‘show me your papers.'”
Next came Boebert’s demonstrably false assertion that there have been no COVID-19 fatalities in Texas since Republican Governor Greg Abbott lifted the Lone Star State’s restrictions in early March.
“But don’t forget Gina, Texas removed their mask mandate two months ago, and [President] ‘Sleepy Joe’ [Biden] called it ‘Neanderthal thinking,'” Boebert whined. “No, sir. Republicans are just following the science, and since removing the mask mandate two months ago, Texas has not reported a single COVID death. Not one.”
