Florida Man Endorses Colorado’s Leading Florida Woman

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) and the former occupant of the White House.

Fox News gleefully reports, just hours after the U.S. House passed legislation to combat “Islamophobia” drafted in response to Colorado freshman controversy fountain Rep. Lauren Boebert’s repeated false stories and race-baiting slurs against fellow Rep. Ilhan Omar, Boebert’s great friend and mentor stepped in once again to make sure no fellow Republican even thinks about supporting any additional sanction like stripping Boebert of her committee assignments:

“Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has done a fantastic job in her first term representing Colorado’s Third District,” Trump said in a statement Wednesday. “She is a fearless leader, a defender of the America First Agenda, and a fighter against the Loser RINOs and Radical Democrats. She will continue to be tough on Crime, strong on Borders, and always protect our under-siege Second Amendment. Lauren has my Complete and Total Endorsement for her reelection!”

Trump’s comments come as the House approved a bill Tuesday aimed at combating “worldwide” Islamophobia, which was drafted in response to comments Boebert made about Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., that critics called Islamophobic.

Video emerged that month, showing Boebert referring to Omar as a member of the “Jihad squad” while also claiming that a Capitol Police officer once confused Omar for a suicide bomber.

While Boebert was freshly on the defensive after her nullified apology left Democrats demanding further action be taken, ex-President Donald Trump issued a statement that, without mentioning Boebert by name, said that “Omar should apologize” and invoked some of the same false accusations about Rep. Omar Boebert repeated. The timing of both that statement and yesterday’s endorsement were clearly meant to signal that Republicans had better not do anything to punish Boebert lest they risk Trump’s vengeance.

Trump’s ringing endorsement also shows the tough road that Sen. Don Coram or any other Republican challenger will have trying to unseat Boebert in a primary, with so many Republican primary voters now non-transferable MAGA cult members. It will be up to Republicans who have had enough of both Boebert and Trump along with independent voters that the far-right tried and failed to exclude from the nominating process to overcome Trump’s support for Boebert in the GOP primary.

There is still a possibility that given the House GOP leadership’s refusal to hold Boebert in any way accountable the Democratic House majority leadership will make good on their commitment to take action. For this news cycle however, thanks as usual to Donald Trump, the lowest common denominator of our politics has triumphed once again.

    You just know the cult leader wants to grab Brandon by the buttocks.

    Good Lord, even her clothing is a sad and empty attempt to ape what AOC does. Her disturbing obsession with AOC was clear long before she even won the CO-3 primary, but it’s downright bizarre how fixated she seems to be in becoming the white supremacist version of AOC, never noticing that the reason plenty of people listen to AOC is her ideals and communication rather than as a pin-up.

    This is some Single White Female stuff going on here. It’s bizarre.

    "a fighter against the loser RINOS……."

    Funny that. Us "loser RINOSs," by voting for Biden or staying home, may have cost Trump the wins in Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia.  

    Trump is thus the real loser.

    Florida crowds didn’t show for the big $rump / O’Reilly circle jerk last Sunday in Orlando. Only 5400 out of 8700 available tickets were sold in the 12,500 seat capacity Amway arena. It was part of a “History Tour”, which $rump’s spox had bragged would be sold out. 

    A related previous event on this “tour” included this memorable quote from Florida Man: 

    Trump told O’Reilly onstage in Sunshine that, as president, he’d discovered the world leaders he “got along best with were tyrants. For whatever reason, I got along great with them.” 🎫🤔
