Boebert in that one speech
said several offensive things that would normally be completely out of bounds for a member of the House:
- Joe Biden was "this piece of crap in the White House."
- Ilhan Omar was part of the "jihad squad."
- The elevator / backpack story (which could get any one of us regular citizens detained in an airport or government building)
- Pete Buttigieg was trying to "chestfeed" his twins.
- “God bless Kyle Rittenhouse.”
- Black Lives Matter are "domestic terrorists."
I fear that our society is losing tact.
