Lauren Boebert

GOP Rep. and QAnon fanatic Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has triggered an avalanche of harsh criticism after she delivered a wild speech on the House floor in defense of Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) before he was censured by the House on Wednesday for posting an animated video on social media depicting himself killing Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

During her fiery speech, Boebert attempted to deflect attention from Gosar’s threatening video by attacking Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) as a member of what she called “the Jihad Squad” and accusing Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) of sleeping with a Chinese spy.

“The Jihad Squad member from Minnesota has paid her husband, and not her brother husband, the other one, over a million dollars in campaign funds,” she said. “This member is allowed on the Foreign Affairs Committee while praising terrorists.”

She added: “My colleague and three-month presidential candidate from California who’s on the Intelligence Committee, slept with Fang Fang, a Chinese spy. Let me say that again: A member of Congress who receives classified briefings was sleeping with the enemy,” she said in an attack on Swalwell.

Boebert’s tirade was met with a slush of negative comments on social media.
