WATCH: Lauren Boebert Is Trending Again, But She’s Not Happy About This Hashtag

Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has made it very clear she needs to be the center of attention, even if it’s negative. Earlier this month she even shared that when she’s not being criticized on social media enough, she starts trolling to get noticed.

However, when the hashtag #LaurenBoebertIsSoDumb started trending again, her public reaction to it seemed to hint that she wasn’t so happy about being criticized after all. The insulting hashtag hit Twitter’s trending list Wednesday and was still going Thursday morning. In the clip below, Boebert responds to the trend, saying that “haters” made it popular.

It’s definitely popular, and while the hashtag itself is harsh and the words are ablist, many people are using it to call attention to legitimate issues with Boebert’s governing.

For example, they’ve boosted concerns about how she and other GOP officials have rejected COVID-19 precautions, to the detriment of their constituents and the country.

Then of course there are the reminders of her behavior on January 6th, including her tweets about 1776 and her oversharing about the locations of lawmakers as the Capitol Building was breached.

Also, there’s the ongoing campaign to remind her and everyone watching of certain behaviors in her past, and her husband’s.

Her routine dismissal of trans rights matters comes up, too.

Boebert says she likes to “turn it on its head” when she trends this way, and she posted the hashtag herself, along with a call for supporters to donate $17.76 to her campaign. Whether or not this works out for her profitably, the day of trending brought plenty of attention to her worst behaviors as a Congress member.
