Mika Brzezinski Stunned By Lauren Boeber’s ‘Violent Stupidity’ On The House Floor
During Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski delivered a forceful rebuke of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) for complaining about Capitol rioters being unarmed during the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol.
Boebert clashed with Democrats on the House Natural Resources Committee over a proposed ban on members carrying guns in the hearing room, and the “Morning Joe” co-host was astonished that Boebert used the attack on the U.S. Capitol — which she foreshadowed that morning on Twitter — as justification to arm herself in Congress.
“It was the first time in many, many years that I have been unprotected,” the far-right lawmaker told the committee. “I was disarmed, not unarmed, disarmed because I was not allowed to possess my firearm.”
A stunned Brzezinski called her comments “headache-inducing.”
“My God, it’s headache-inducing, honestly,” she said. “By the way, the amendment failed in a party-line vote. Here, this woman is talking about Jan. 6 — her guy and her people, like, this was an insurrection to try and interrupt the process of the 2020 election. I don’t even know where to begin. We have such violent stupidity.”
Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson noted the irony that Boebert was suggesting she wanted to shoot the rioters who were coming to disrupt the election that she wanted to be overturned.
“She lives in some sort of weird, you know, firearms Disneyland where everybody has guns and everybody shoots everybody all the time,” Robinson said. “It’s insane, it’s just insane.”
Brzezinski added that her remarks showed a basic lack of intelligence.
“I mean, we’re saying this with all seriousness and without trying to — I mean, it’s hard,” she said. “You have to say it like it is. We have a stupidity problem on the Republican side, literal stupidity, or something worse then — stupidity with a violent edge to it. I mean, they want to have loaded — this is — what has become of Republicans in Congress?”
