On Thursday, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) went after Parkland shooting survivor and gun control activist David Hogg, after he called her one of the "real threats" facing Congress.

"David, please. We all saw how tough you were when questioned face to face," wrote Boebert, a presumed reference to a video of him being harassed by fellow GOP lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). "Give your keyboard a rest, child."

Boebert's remarks drew instant backlash on social media, with commenters slamming the freshman congresswoman for going after a college student. Some of them referenced her alleged tweets revealing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's location in the Capitol while the riot was in progress to suggest Hogg had a point.
