These are uncivilized people, Trump supporters, gun lovers, anti-vax MAGA maniacs who are keen on the mentality of protecting their own health and the safety of others by wearing a face mask to protect against the highly infectious Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus.
In a strong suggestion that she somehow bypassed the typical socialization process that allows for empathy and social responsibility, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) today expressed her contempt for the reinstatement of a mandate of the mask on the floor of the House of Representatives violently flinging a proffered mask offered by a Democratic floor staff back to his face.
POLITICOSarah Ferris reported the incident in a tweet detailing an eyewitness account of the riot.
Wow GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert had just thrown a face mask on a staff member on the floor when she came to the floor naked, each one watching the exchange.

Ferris’ reporting was confirmed by ABC News‘Ben Seigel who added likely motivation for the impromptu display of pique.
Rep. Just threw away. Lauren Boebert put a mask on a Democratic floor staffer who tried to give her one, every source on the House floor who saw this happen.
As of last night, the latest guidance in the House requires wearing a mask on the floor and in most group meetings / spaces.

Congressman Boebert is among the confusing group of GOP extremists who believe that their right to show no mask and spread the disease somehow implies everyone’s right to stay healthy in the time of the new COVID rate hike. due to Delta diversity and slow vaccination. rate including Fox News-public brain bathed.
Rep. Followed. Boebert his visceral display of anti-mask rage with a profane Twitter post describing exactly how he felt about restoring Pelosi’s congressional health science, using words straight from the lips of his ideological idol, Donald Trump.

Boebert’s petulant and childishness attracts a lot of criticism in the comments section of his post.
And that’s the kind of professionalism we expect from you Lauren. Tweeting TFG saying BS and throwing masks at the staff as you stomp your feet like a 3 yr old. Thank you for your professional presence in Washington!

In my opinion, “totalitarianism” was skipped on the GED test.

Congressman Boerbert’s anti-mask tantrums are just one of many reasons he and other members of the Republican Party’s QAnon wing need to be removed from Congress as soon as possible.
It is a shame in the American political system that someone as uninformed, ignorant, and persuasively thin as Boerbert is still in Congress.
