GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert’s Hot Take On Fourth Of July Gets An Icy Reception

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) continues to confuse people with her tweets.

Biden on Wednesday suggested that “to celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4th with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June. We all need to mask up until the number of cases goes down, until everyone has a chance to get their shot.”

Others thought Boebert was simply playing up the right-wing talking point decrying Democrats for “taking away” freedoms.

The post did galvanize some of her supporters. But mostly it was met with mockery:
