GOP Representative Lauren Boebert Suggests Ridiculous Way To Address Delta Variant, Is Buried In Scorn


Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) mocked the Delta variant of COVID-19 on Wednesday, then deleted the tweet.

“The simplest way to eliminate the Delta variant is to turn off CNN,” wrote the QAnon-supporting Colorado Republican, touting her approach to dealing with the mutated strain of the coronavirus, which was discovered in India and is significantly more transmissible than others.

“And vote Republican,” she added, attempting to politicize the issue even further.

After an hour, Boebert canceled the post, but it is still archived on ProPublica's "Politwoops" page.

In response to the post, Colorado State Rep. Steven Woodrow (D) stated that Boebert “demonstrates once again that stupidity has a champion in Colorado.”

Others agreed, with many reminding Boebert that the Delta variant is on the rise in her own district:

Unbelievably ignorant and irresponsible. — Bear Lass (@DeborahShulman3) June 30, 2021

Colorado’s @RepBoebert has deleted her tweet about the Delta variant. Boebert represents Mesa County, where the Delta variant was first discovered and now accounts for 50%+ of COVID cases in Colorado. pic.twitter.com/UaIu7EmhAm — Kyle Clark (@KyleClark) June 30, 2021

Bobo has no idea how disease spreads, and her ignorance will kill more of her constituents who are dying of the Delta variant. Darwin in action! — TheFabulousJoeyB (@joeybmplsmn) June 30, 2021

The CDC has been dispatched to investigate the situation in Mesa County, which has the highest rate of deadly Delta variant infections in Colorado. But don't worry, Lauren Boebert says she knows the cure for the Delta variant. https://t.co/JJYEGbxbtN #copolitics #copols #coleg #co03 pic.twitter.com/Db7ukmVp3U — Colorado Pols (@coloradopols)

Lauren Boebert deleted this tweet, presumably because she doesn't want people to see how opposed she is to science, saving children and the immunocompromised, and medical professionals who are mentally and physically exhausted from dealing with this shit. #covid #Delta #GQP #COVIDIOT pic.twitter.com/RGJBQoHGYz — Eliza (@lamElizaBee) June 30, 2021

I see you deleted it before I could ask, but how exactly does this prevent disease? pic.twitter.com/qFE9smzJza — Been Franklin (@ChrisNoNews) June 30, 2021

The Flu Klux Klan. — Luke Forester (@DrForester) 30 June 2021

LB deleted this insensitive, inaccurate tweet a few hours ago, most likely after learning that one of her district's counties has one of the worst outbreaks of the Delta variant in the country. pic.twitter.com/9HnHVgp3Ks — WC (@striveforfacts) June 30, 2021

How is the Delta Variant treating your district this time, science girl? pic.twitter.com/I6xH5Em2Ri — kateg (@kateg1977) June 30, 2021

Is it because your district has one of the most severe outbreaks of the Delta variant that you deleted this tweet? pic.twitter.com/PpwJd2Cfya — H-PBR (@h_pbr) July 1, 2021
