Boebert Blames Barbra Streisand And Ryan Reynolds For Making Her Run In Another District

Lauren Boebert told Steve Bannon that she was running in another district because 'Hollywood elites' were donating to her opponent Adam Frisch.

Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert recently revealed why she was forced to change congressional districts for the 2024 election.

On December 27, Boebert announced she would run for office in Colorado congressional district 4 (CO-4) instead of where she currently serves—district 3 (CO-3).


As one might guess, it's all Barbra Streisand's and Ryan Reynolds' fault.

In an appearance on pardoned former Trump advisor Steve Bannon's podcast, Boebert said:

"We have to shut down the Hollywood elites who are trying to buy my current district. There has been close to $10 million poured into this district to buy this seat."
"Colorado's 3rd District is not for sale. But with my announcement running in the 4th District, that shut down the dark money that was flowing into our district."

Once again painting herself as the victim, Boebert added:

"They do not have policies they are running on [in CO-3], they are simply running against Lauren Boebert. It's not just Aspen that the money is coming from, it's coming from Hollywood."
"When you have Barbra Streisand donating to the Democrat, when you have Ryan Reynolds donating to the Democrat, it shows you that Hollywood is trying to buy their way into Congress."

You can watch her comments on her efforts to remain in Congress by swapping constituencies here:

People weren't buying Boebert's excuse for switching to a heavily Republican district for 2024.

Boebert barely won her current district in 2022 with her popularity dropping drastically from 2020.











This isn’t the first time Boebert tried to name-drop to gain attention.

In November, she asked for money by claiming the two stars were working against her.

She posted on X:

"My opponent has plenty of funding from Soros dark money and even Hollywood liberals like Barbra Streisand and Ryan Reynolds."

Despite Boebert's claims, Streisand hadn't donated to Democrat Adam Frisch’s campaign in 2023 or 2024 as of this writing.

Reynolds donated just $500 in March and an additional $1,000 in May according to records from the Federal Election Commission.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
