Freshman GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado has won an award of sorts — “Hottest Woman in Congress” — though there’s a bit more to the story than that.
The award was handed out by The First TV’s Jesse Kelly last month along with a gift card to Red Lobster, only, Boebert’s last name was misspelled on the award.
In a clip from late January surfaced on Twitter by Patriot Takes, Boebert joined The Jesse Kelly Show, where he proceeded to congratulate her on the “high achievement.”
“I see you did get our certificate, and I wanna make sure you also got the gift card we sent along for you,” he said, as she held up a framed certificate deeming “Lauren Boebart” the “Hottest Woman In Congress.”
“And Jesse, I do think that $27.43 is under the gift limit, but if we check with ethics that it’s over, this is coming right back to you,” the Colorado firebrand quipped.
“Yes ma’am, I understand that,” he replied. “We’re gonna do the best we can to up that to $30 next year, depending on how the show does.”
Kelly went on to say that self-described Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York was this year’s runner-up.
Boebert has made waves since she won her election.
The owner of a restaurant in her home of Rifle, Colo., where she requires wait staff to be armed, Boebert immediately petitioned to carry a concealed firearm while on Capitol Hill for self-defense. Capitol Police granted her permission in February 2021, about a month after she went viral in a video she posted of her on Capitol grounds saying, “I will carry my firearm in D.C. and in Congress.”
Since then, the staunch ally of former President Donald Trump, who recently endorsed her for reelection, has been a thorn in the side of Democrats, especially the far-left “Squad,” frequently calling them out while going out of her way to highlight Biden administration policies she sees as detrimental to the country.
In November, she fired back at late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, calling him a “sexist pig” after he hurled an insult her way.
In a short video clip posted to her Twitter account, Boebert was discussing Dr. Anthony Fauci and new reports that appear to show money from the National Institutes of Health-funded lab experiments that tortured and killed beagle puppies.
“The reports alleging the animal mistreatment stem from a Freedom of Information Act request. That request came from the watchdog group White Coat Waste Project, and it turned up some shocking findings. Among them: That taxpayer money funded drug experiments involving a few dozen beagle puppies. The group’s report went so far as to claim that researchers locked the dogs in cages. And even allowed starved sandflies to eat the puppies alive,” BGR reported.
In her video, Boebert showed a short clip of Kimmel mocking her, where he said every time he sees her, she reminds of him “stepmother porn.”
Boebert has also called on President Biden to take a cognitive test, posting a video clip of the then-2020 candidate appearing to flub a word to her social media.
“It’s almost the end of 2021 and I’ve yet to see Biden mobilize truinternatialdepressure like he promised. What’s the hold up?” Boebert tweeted.
“I see many of the uninformed basement dwellers missed this moment of Biden’s campaign. Not surprising, sadly,” she added.
Earlier in the year, she joined other GOP colleagues in calling for Biden to take the exam, which he has yet to do.
“I do believe that this is deliberate. I also believe that President Biden should have a cognitive test. I agree with my colleague Ronny Jackson, who has demanded a cognitive test of the President,” Boebert said.
“He had to perform one for President Trump when he was President Trump’s doctor, but I do believe that this is deliberate. And that’s why we’re not seeing any real solutions, any real answers at the border. To all of us, this is a crisis,” she said.
