Lauren Boebert Is Congress' New Dead Fetusmobile

  • 16 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Rep. Lauren Boebert holds up dead fetus pictures while introducing legislation to delist gray wolves.

This morning, the Water, Wildlife and Fisheries Subcommittee of the U.S. House Natural Resources Committee convened to hear legislation introduced by Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado that would remove gray wolves from the Endangered Species List–a rare occasion in which Boebert would directly address a major flashpoint issue in her district, and would enjoy plenty of support from CD-3 ranchers hotly opposed to the reintroduction of the species in Colorado. In other words, if even you don’t agree with Boebert on the issue, we were ready to witness a rare instance of Boebert actually doing something close to her job.

But as Raw Story’s David Edwards reports, it was not to be:

During Water, Wildlife and Fisheries Subcommittee hearing, Boebert was recognized to present her bill to remove the Gray Wolf from the list of endangered species.

“I appreciate this time today and thank you so much for everyone who’s attending here and traveling so far to be here,” Boebert began. “I do want to say before my opening remarks, you know, since we’re talking about the Endangered Species Act, I’m just wondering if my colleagues on the other side would put babies on the endangered species list.”

The lawmaker held up photos of fetuses as she spoke…

That’s right, folks. We’re not talking about an attempt to disrupt debate over legislation Boebert opposed. Boebert actually hijacked her own presentation to engage in a totally gratuitous round of lurid, performative wedge-issue nonsense, instead of focusing on the bill she was there to present–a bill that might have otherwise helped convince voters in CD-3 that Boebert cares about something besides outraging her way onto the evening news.

We’re not showing these disgusting images just to cost you your appetite. People need to see this pointless grandstand, and understand it in the full context of Boebert trying to speak for her constituents on a legitimate yet totally unrelated question, in order to understand what an utter failure of representative leadership Boebert has become. Just a few months ago, after almost losing her seat in an election that wasn’t supposed to be close, the same Lauren Boebert promised to help “take down the temperature in D.C.”

After this spectacle, it’s clearer than ever that Boebert doesn’t know what that means.

  1. Anything for a stage. The voters of Colorado, yes, even CD3, have spoken and Coloradoans strongly support access to abortion. Opposition to abortion, along with election denying, cost GOP seats in the legislature and almost her own in Congress. But please Lauren, do grandstand and talk about how much you hate abortion at a hearing about wolves.

    And yes, while a plurality of voters across the state want to bring back wolves, CD3 very much doesn’t. So, throwaway your opportunity to truly represent your district. What an idiot and an embarrassment. 

  2. And, by the way, I’m not a bot and I really resent that I have been put in that category and made to do that stupid  exercise of clicking on stupid pictures just so I can have an opinion.

  3. Pictures of an aborted human fetus during a debate on "endangered species"?

    When I was born 65 years ago, there were about 3 billion people on this planet. Today there are 8 billion.

    I fail to see how homo sapiens is an endangered species. 

    What a fucking moron.

  4. Wow!

    She doesn't realize that no one paid any attention to anything she said after holding up the fetus pictures, does she?

    Whataboutism is one of the laziest ways to argue and she chose to whatabout herself?!

    WOW!

    1. It takes your breathe away sometimes.

      What on earth could have happened to that poor, little girl to make her grow into the vile, ugly, hateful woman she has become?

      1. Rightwing fucking media happened to her.

        She was most likely a complete and total brat growing up, a total mean-girl karen. Her gullibility and lack of intellect made her a perfect candidate to be suckered into the rightwing mediasphere, and now CO suffers from this screaching sentient skidmark.

  5. It’s all about perspective.  Looking at this from her vantage point living in Rifle, I suppose that gray wolves probably are significantly less rare and endangered than other things out there — like14-year old virgins???

      1. ??? She's in DC, 2000 miles away, and her hubby is swimming in oil company money and all by himself. Seems pretty obvious that he is at the bowling alley every night trying with the high school girls. Or even at a bar. Should be easy for a investigative reporter to find out.
