U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) decided to turn a local D.C. Boys & Girls Club into a tool of her relentless attacks against President Joe Biden Thursday morning, after Wednesday's annual Congressional Baseball Game.
Every year for the past 112 years (except for 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic) members of Congress have joined together to participate in the national pastime – these days a rare moment of sportsmanship and bipartisanship.
And it's all for charity.
Since 2017 the four charities that benefit from the game are the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, the Washington Literacy Center, the U.S. Capitol Police Memorial Fund, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.
Congresswoman Boebert, a pro-gun extremist who claims to support the police could have supported members of the U.S. Capitol Police in a tweet, but instead she used the Boys and Girls Club as a pedophilic pawn in her QAnon attack against the President.
Boebert claims to have dropped her allegiance to the antisemitic pro-Trump conspiracy theory, but her actions speak otherwise. She recently hired a husband and wife team of QAnon conspiracy theorists for her Colorado Shooters restaurant and congressional office.
For those who need a reminder, BBC called QAnon "a wide-ranging, completely unfounded theory that says that President Trump is waging a secret war against elite Satan-worshipping paedophiles in government, business and the media."
The New York Times adds that "QAnon followers believe that this cabal includes top Democrats like President Joseph R. Biden Jr., Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and George Soros, as well as a number of entertainers and Hollywood celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks and Ellen DeGeneres and religious figures including Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama. Many of them also believe that, in addition to molesting children, members of this group kill and eat their victims to extract a life-extending chemical called adrenochrome."
Enter Congresswoman Boebert, who Thursday morning posted this tweet:
The Boys & Girls Club was a big part of last night's Congressional Baseball Game.
So of course Joe Biden showed up. — Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) September 30, 2021
The outrage against the Colorado Republican has been especially palpable, with many pointing to her own husband's lewd acts.
"In January 2004," The New York Post reports, Jayson Boebert "was arrested after allegedly exposing his penis to two women at a bowling alley, according to an arrest affidavit. Lauren Boebert (then age 17 and known as Lauren Opal Roberts) was also there. Jayson Boebert pleaded guilty to public indecency and lewd exposure, earning himself four days in jail and two years' probation."
Here's how some are responding to Boebert's tweet:
Yes because the boys and girls clubs of America are amazing organizations to support. They are organizations who help many boys and girls throughout the country every day.

Why did you tweet this? What are you saying here? You're not only cruel, you're not only ignorant, but you're a coward. You send out a tweet accusing the President of the United States of something horrible & ugly, but you don't even have the courage to say what it is. Coward. https://t.co/poQcGOSl8x

In just one tweet she insults a well-respected service organization and re-invites the world to comment on her husband's indecent exposure arrest.
Nice work. https://t.co/bZ1hZsxlv5 — Mattie Timmer (@MattieTimmer) September 30, 2021

https://t.co/5K1VrymPF8 You paid this back but I think those who care about accountability should pressure the FEC to make certain you face consequences for your repeated offenses. Think it's time for a petition.
