Boebert Dragged For Claiming Men Should Be 'Terrified' After $83 Million Judgment Against Trump

The MAGA Rep. warned that the jury's $83 million ruling against Trump in his E. Jean Carroll defamation case sets a 'terrifying' precedent for 'men in this country.'

Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert made a bizarre claim about how men should be "terrified" following the $83.3 million judgment against former Republican President Donald Trump for defaming advice columnist E. Jean Carroll, whom he sexually assaulted.

In May 2023, a New York jury found that Trump was liable for sexually assaulting and defaming Carroll after she filed a federal lawsuit against him and awarded Trump to pay her $5 million.

On Friday, January 26, 2024, a second defamation trial concluded with the anonymous nine-person jury awarding Carroll $18.3 million in compensatory damages and $65 million in punitive damages.

Boebert took to X (formerly Twitter) and expressed her dismay.

"An $83,000,000 j[udgment] given to a woman who can’t even tell you the date or time she encountered President Trump."
"The precedent this sets for men in this country is [absolutely] terrifying."

The distressed conspiracy theorist continued:

"It is truly unbelievable how weaponized our system of 'justice' has become."

Social media users thought Boebert's statement making the defamation case about gender was rich considering her ex-husband's history of sexual misconduct.

Users also pointed to Boebert's own public misconduct for which she was forcibly ejected from a musical performance of Beetlejuice after being caught groping her boyfriend in a theater packed with family audiences.

Users were confounded as to why anyone would willfully support a former President who is embroiled in several legal battles, remains a perpetual liar, and is notorious for an excessive amount of allegations, many of which are tied to instances of misconduct and sexual assault.

In addition to being a staunch Trump ally who supported his false claims of a stolen 2020 election, the gun-toting, self-described Christian Congresswoman is a vocal opponent of green energy, pandemic mandates, abortion, gender-affirming surgery for minors, and same-sex marriage.

In December, she announced she was switching congressional districts likely to avoid a possible rematch with Democratic challenger Adam Frisch, who was defeated by Boebert by a narrow margin in the 2022 midterm elections.

Frisch announced he was running to unseat Boebert "and restore dignity to #CO03 representation" in November.

Boebert will be running in the crowded Republican primary to succeed retiring GOP Representative Ken Buck in eastern Colorado's 4th congressional district.
