Colorado is generally a pretty blue state. Both senators, John Hickenlooper and Michael Bennett, are Democrats. And Joe Biden carried the state in 2020 by double digits.But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t pockets of the state where Lauren Boebert could win office. And the GOP Rep. has done everything she can to embarrass the state. During a recent commentary for 9news in Denver, anchor Kyle Clark tore into the Controversial Republican.
The newsman began by addressing a recent speech where Boebert called Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib members of the Jihad Squad. “We hold Congresswoman Boebert to a far lower standard. If we held her to the same standard as every other elected Republican and Democrat in Colorado, we would be here near nightly chronicling the cruel, false and bigoted things that Boebert says for attention and fundraising.”
Clark continued, “This is not about politics, assuming politics is still about things like taxes, national security, health care, jobs and public lands. This is about us, as journalists, recognizing that we’ll hold a politician accountable if they say something vile once, but we won’t do it if they do it every day.”
