Boebert Dragged After Calling Out The Media For Covering The Women's World Cup

The MAGA Rep. lashed out on X, formerly Twitter, accusing the media of 'neglecting' bigger stories to cover the huge sporting event and Trump's latest indictments.

Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert was widely mocked after she took to Twitter to express her frustration over mainstream media covering the Women's World Cup and former President Donald Trump's indictments rather than what she deemed as the "biggest news story of the century."

Her assertion was linked to testimony provided by Devon Archer in the House Oversight Committee, which has yet to be publicly released. Archer's testimony pertains to his role on the board of the oil company Burisma alongside Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden.

Boebert wrote:

“GET THIS: The mainstream media is choosing to neglect the biggest news story of the century and instead is covering President Trump and the Women’s World Cup."
"They are NOT reporting that our alleged [President] lied to the American people and sold out the country to line his pockets with millions.”
“So much for being ‘news’ networks. Shameful!”

You can see her tweet below.

Boebert's focus on Archer's testimony led her to dismiss the importance of the Women's World Cup, a premier international sporting event. The Women's World Cup has historically held immense cultural and athletic significance, particularly as the U.S. women's national soccer team has secured victory in the past two tournaments.

Her remarks also come after Special Counsel Jack Smith indicted Trump in connection with his widespread efforts to overturn the 2020 election result.

Trump faces four felony counts, including conspiracy to defraud the United States and conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding. The indictment further accuses him of attempting to exploit the events of January 6—the day a mob of his supporters attacked the United States Capitol on the false premise the election had been stolen—to further his quest to maintain power.

However, Boebert's focus over much of the past week as evidenced by her social media accounts has been on House Oversight hearings that have largely highlighted the failure of Republicans to deliver on anything resembling proof of any wrongdoing by President Biden.

Boebert was swiftly criticized for her remarks.

Archer's testimony reportedly did not deliver the bombshell some Republicans were hoping for, leading Ingraham to dismiss the importance of solid evidence.

Earlier this week, Fox News personality Laura Ingraham was criticized after she downplayed the significance of finding "sufficient proof" to convict President Joe Biden of any financial crime.

Ingraham focused on Archer's comments during a closed-door interview with lawmakers. According to a CNN source, Archer mentioned that Hunter Biden was selling the "illusion" of access to his father, but he provided no evidence linking President Biden to his son's overseas business dealings.

Following the interview, a Democrat who was present during questioning later clarified that the pair never discussed business matters in their phone conversations and urged House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer—a Kentucky Republican who said the President "lied to the American people"—to release the transcript of Archer's interview to dispel misinformation.
