Lauren Boebert managed to get herself as cornered as any rat that has ever lived and so now she’s decided to be the repentant sinner. Which makes perfect sense. It’s the one role that she can plausibly play. I’m actually surprised she didn’t claim that Satan took her over and made her vape and grope her boyfriend during a public outing at the Buell Theater, but I guess she’s had enough ridicule for one week. And a brutal week it has been. And it’s her own doing. If she’s suffered, it’s by her own hand.
Boebert has decided to cry uncle and walk back her statement that she wasn’t vaping since literally millions of eyeballs have seen the truth of something else. She admitted in a Friday statement, that “it’s clear now that was not accurate.” Daily Beast:
“Whether it was the excitement of seeing a much-anticipated production or the natural anxiety of being in a new environment, I genuinely did not recall vaping that evening when I discussed the night’s events with my campaign team while confirming my enthusiasm for the musical,” she said in a statement shared with The Daily Beast.
“The natural anxiety of being in a new place?” What new place? Denver is a new place? You get amnesia when you go to Denver? What, it’s the big buildings as opposed to cow pastures, what?
In a subsequent text message to The Daily Beast, Boebert said she hoped people would understand her mistake.
“There’s not a person walking the face of this planet that hasn’t had a moment of weakness and fallen short and I think people will get that,” she wrote. “I’ll show strength through humility moving forward.”
Okay, this is bullshit. This is not “having a moment of weakness.” These events went on for several minutes. They went on before intermission. She was asked to stop then and she resumed right after intermission. What is clear as glass here, is she’s not sorry for what she did, she’d do it again tonight given the chance. She’s sorry as hell she got caught.
And if she wanted to show “strength through humility” she could get on the phone and find out the name of the usher she flipped off and humbly apologize to the man. And she could apologize to the pregnant woman she called a “sad and miserable person” by recording an on-air apology at the local TV stations. They would all love it.
Writing in the statementthat she never intended to “mislead” anyone, she added: “We know we will have to work to earn your trust back and it may not happen overnight, but we will do it.”
Again, I don’t care how unforgiving I sound. This is lame. This is a cornered rat trying to bargain with the cat not to eat her.
She addressed the vaping, but not the insults, either verbal or by gesture, and she said nothing about her lewd behavior with she and her boyfriend groping one another. She doesn’t regret any of it, is my sense, she has just realized the awful reality that we live in a world where everybody’s got a camera and where public places are wired with security systems, 24/7. She got caught being herself. That’s the reality of this.
You know where I stand. Adam For Colorado, donate. Let’s get rid of her.
