ICE ON SITE: Was ICE really at the scene in Uvalde, Texas after the mass shooting, as outraged Twitter users explained? Yes but It’s complicated.

WORK IT: Is it okay to do a Zoom interview in a hoodie? A LinkedIn recruiter don’t think. It’s close.

STARTLE: We already know that proud month– which starts June 1st – has been commercialized by brands and advertisers, but have you seen it? Merch that Walmart sells? People mock this year’s offerings, which include a hat with the slogan “Live Love LGBT.”

The formulaic far-right congresswoman from Colorado

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) is the political version of a mixtape.

This volume’s song choices include a love song about guns, a ballad busting up immigration, a dance number, or two sluggish guards democratsa rock anthem highlighting her favorite quips, and a slow jam called “sue Brandon.”

Boebert has come up with some catchy ditties that will get her base singing along, and she’ll keep playing them until her ears bleed.

The congresswoman in the freshman belongs to the QAnon class of Congress. She claims that she doesn’t follow the conspiracy theory that elite liberal satanists rape and eat children, but rather Media Matter for America reports that she appeared on pro-QAnon shows, drawn to her YouTube channels and said she hopes QAnon is “real because it just means America is getting stronger and better.”

Like most conspiracy theorists, Boebert is prolific on social media. She maintains an online presence Twitter, Facebook, youtube, Gave, gettr, Parlertruth social and telegram. It also publishes a newsletter sporadically.

As much as she loves to complain about big tech companies, Boebert goes days without updating her accounts on edge platforms. Not even her favorite ex-president’s joke on a social media platform benefits from her daily Twitter throughts about things like “Micky [sic] Mouse’s Trademark” or excitation that we add “Trump’s Face Time” to Mount Rushmore.

If your main goal is to get people excited, there’s no point in spending a lot of time on right-wing echo chamber platforms with a fraction of the audience.

She’s been in Congress a year and a half, Boeberts bills introduced Banning face masks, impeaching President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, and removing funding from the World Health Organization—all 100% serious legislation on issues that definitely matter to their Colorado constituents.

In one particularly heartless bill, Boebert sought to end state funeral services for families who have lost loved ones to COVID-19. It’s not hard to imagine her giggling maniacally as she calls it the “Stop Appropriations for Obsequy Costs Act” or “Stop AOC Act” — a teenage barb addressing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y .) who she is with often spars on twitter.

Though she’s rarely seen without a smile, Boebert’s social media footprint teems with hatred. She directs much of that hatred toward other racial and religious minority lawmakers. Vice President Harris; Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.); and former President Barack Obama are some of their favorite targets.

It’s no wonder a local reporter recently blew her up for saying the quiet part about the racist replacement theory out loud in the days after the Buffalo mass shooting.

Boebert’s brand is outrage. Unless there’s a weapon involved. Then their brand is freedom.
