Lauren Boebert, one of the more insidious Republicans to be occupying a seat in the House of Representatives, couldn’t stay in her seat at a theater in Denver the other night.

With boobies hanging out, partly due to her date grabbing at them like a hungry puppy, and who, by the way, looked like he had slept in his ill-fitting suit jacket and wrinkled cords, the queen of the flea market offered up the inevitable, “Do you know who I am” as two ushers escorted her. Boebert then decided that, for posterity, she would let the world know — as if there was any doubt — her real IQ: Up went the middle finger.

She’s a class act. She’s supposedly representing the interests of working-class Americans from her district. In the meantime, she is giving grief to those same Americans out on a Sunday night, as well as the low-paid employees of the theater. Boebert was seen on video vaping in the theater and waving off a pregnant woman who asked her not to do so; she was then seen “seat dancing,” which I am not sure why was wrong. It was cute, but I would probably not have been so…
