On Thursday, April 15, Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert of Colorado took to Twitter to complain in response to reports some Democrats were preparing a bill to expand the Supreme Court again.
According to Harvard Law & Policy Review, the SCOTUS has been adjusted in size seven times throughout its history. Additionally, they pointed out the United States Constitution established the SCOTUS, but didn't specify a size.
However U.S. history and the Constitution has never deterred Boebert from stoking false outrage among her followers.
"Packing the Supreme Court is an act of political terrorism."

Many on Twitter found this accusation particularly hypocritical considering Boebert's acceptance of armed Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6.

It was hard for many to believe Boebert could be so oblivious to her own words online.

Boebert's relationship with political terrorism has been...shakey at best.

Twitter made sure Boebert's tweet was suitably criticized from every angle.

Storming the Capitol is actual terrorism. https://t.co/nQs7rxBCDS— Noah (@Noah)1618517184.0
If Boebert wants to be taken seriously online, she'd be better off not reminding users of her encouragement of the January 6 insurrection.
