Rep. Lauren Boebert’s latest tweet about COVID-19 had people issuing a collective: What now?
On Wednesday, the conspiracy theory-endorsing Colorado Republican declared that “COVID-19 mutated into Communism a long time ago.”
COVID-19 mutated into Communism a long time ago.

The tweet came after a string of posts attacking President Joe Biden’s door-to-door vaccination drive to combat a slowdown in rates of new vaccinations nationwide.
“Woa. Wait. What?” author and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Marianne Williamson responded on Twitter.
Other people were similarly confused:
That she has a decent chance of winning re-election is why the rest of us view the GOP as a support group for the dim. https://t.co/fLLe8lYHtl

Lauren Boebert: Too ignorant to know what Communism is, too lazy to crack a book and try to figure it out, and too gullible to realize that she is merely a political tool.
Ignorant, Lazy, and Gullible = the PERFECT RepubliQan!

Know who’s not laughing at your COVID jokes?
1,120 who died of COVID in your district.
9 of the 10 counties in CO03 with the highest death rate voted for you.
9 of the 10 counties with the highest “at least one dose” vaccination rate voted against you.
Ha ha, you’re so funny
