WATCH: Lauren Boebert’s Standup Just Gets Worse — Climate Change And AOC Are Targets Too

A clip was released last week of Lauren Boebert speaking to an audience and telling what she seemed to think was a hilarious anecdote depicting Representative Ilhan Omar as a possible terrorist. The story hit like a rock on a pond, with outward-growing ripples — since its release, Boebert has apologized (sort of), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has addressed the content, and Marjorie Taylor Greene has responded to double-down on the racist rhetoric.

Now we have additional clips from the same speech, and it’s clear that Boebert’s efforts at comedy did not improve throughout it. In the clip below, for instance, Boebert tries to explain climate change, which she unfortunately thinks “happens four times every year.”

Oof. In case anyone gets the opportunity to explain it to the Congresswoman, climate and weather aren’t the same thing. While weather patterns certainly change with seasons, when we track climate, we’re talking about patterns of larger changes happening over longer periods of time — more like average temperatures and precipitation over time, rather than whether it’s warm or rainy today.

That’s not all — she also has opinions on the Build Back Better bill, which she suggests is intended to make sure that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can afford a Tesla.

Boebert hasn’t said whether she’s interested in a Tesla herself, but speaking of financial issues, Forbes reported earlier this year on hers — specifically, the misdirection of thousands of dollars in campaign funds for personal use. She says they were in error and have been reimbursed to the campaign, but the FEC made clear that it still had discretion to take punitive action for the charges.
