‘Ripped To Shreds By Your Own Constituents’: Boebert Gets Into It With AOC After Democrat’s Rough Town Hall Event

‘Ripped To Shreds By Your Own Constituents’: Boebert Gets Into It With AOC After Democrat’s Rough Town Hall Event

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Thursday online over the far-Left rep’s rough town hall event earlier in the week.

AOC on Wednesday tried to fend off two town hall attendees who accused her of being a fraud and supporting nuclear war.

“On the rare occasions that [AOC] actually spends time with her constituents, she is reminded that she has sold them out at every turn,” Boebert tweeted along with the video of the tense interaction. “She campaigned as an outsider and has now just morphed into #SandyPelosi!” 

“Tulsi Gabbard, she’s left the Democratic Party because they are war hawks,” one protester told AOC at the event, Timcast first reported. “You ran as an outsider! Yet, you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine.”

“Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens?” he pressed. “You’re playing with our lives!”

“You voted to mobilize and send money to Ukrainian Nazis,” another man, Jose Vega, yelled. “You’re a coward!”

During the same town hall, Ocasio-Cortez was pressed on her immigration stance by a retired firefighter, and another constituent asked the Democrat about rising crime.

AOC reacted by posting a screenshot of Boebert’s tweet. “Hey Boebert, you seem to have us confused,” the Democrat wrote, claiming that she is routinely interacting with her constituents while Boebert is “too scared to hold regular town halls open to all.”

Hey Boebert, you seem to have us confused.
I:
✅ have attended & hosted 100s of community events
✅ hold regular town halls
✅ don’t take a dime in corporate cash

You:
🚮 are bankrolled by corporate PACs, Big Ag, & Oil
🚮 are too scared to hold regular town halls open to all pic.twitter.com/A0jrRbyFDO

Boebert responded by noting of AOC’s move to comment with a screenshot, rather than retweeting with video of the rough exchange. “I notice you took a screenshot of my tweet instead of sharing the original one with the video of you getting completely ripped to shreds by your own constituents,” she wrote.

“I have governed as I campaigned. You sold out your supporters. Just own it,” the Republican added. “You’re the machine now.”

Boebert trolled AOC last year, too, wearing a twist on the progressive’s ultra-expensive “Tax The Rich” Met Gala dress. “Let’s Go Brandon,” Boebert’s red dress said in large white letters.

“It’s not a phrase, it’s a movement! #LGB” she tweeted out, captioning a photo of the attire.

“Let’s Go Brandon” became a slight against President Joe Biden and his allies in the media after NASCAR fans’ “f*** Joe Biden” chant was covered up as a “Let’s go Brandon” cheer.
