Here is the tweet from 1776.
While pro-Trump insurgents descended on the Capitol, many lawmakers took to Twitter. Boebert joined them … and decided to tweet that the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, had been removed from the chambers of the house. While she didn’t specify where Pelosi had been taken, this tweet apparently stunned countless people. After all, the viral photo of a man with his foot on Pelosi’s desk doesn’t leave our thoughts so quick. There is also no report of a man who traveled to Washington DC from Colorado and was arrested for allegedly threatening Pelosi. There are reports that some who invaded the Capitol were looking not only for Pelosi but also for Vice Presidents Mike Pence and Schumer.
So it’s safe to say that Boebert’s tweets were both daunting and worrying.
The loudspeaker was removed from the chambers.

Boebert, however, only doubled when he published a statement on the demands for her resignation, saying in part: “We should take the Democrats at their word when they say that a crisis must never be in vain. Their hypocrisy is shown in conversations about impeachment, censure, and other ways to punish Republicans for false accusations of instigating the kind of violence they have so frequently and transparently supported in the past. “
Regarding her decision to tweet about Pelosi, Boebert argued, “They accuse me of tweeting the presence of the speaker live after she was safely removed from the Capitol, as if I was divulging a great secret, when in fact it was also the case was televised. “
She suggested that “leading Democrats” promoted “mob violence,” including former President Barack Obama and President-elect Joe Biden. She also accused a number of celebrities of doing the same thing for whatever reason, including Madonna and Johnny Depp.
And the Tuesday before, she was back on Twitter with a pseudo-Unity call.
Labeling 75,000,000 Americans as domestic terrorists is not a unit.
