GOP Congresswoman Lauren Boebert of Colorado has already made a name for herself across the country with her gun-toting, Democrat-taunting aesthetic that seemingly never relents. But recently, a ploy to drum up followers on Twitter backfired on her in the most satisfying way.

Rep. Boebert tweeted to followers asking them to share their favorite Bible verses:


What followed was a manifesto of verses summing up Boebert's own unbecoming transgressions as highlighted by none other than the Holy Book itself.






Boebert, whose staunch right-wing belief system has her campaigning against immigration, equal rights for LGBTQ+ people and women, and pro-police policies that indubitably put people of color further at risk of injury and death by the police.

These stand in stark contrast to some of the verses of the Bible, particularly of the New Testament, for which the GOP claims to advocate in government.






Boebert is also one of many GOP Congresspeople who voted to overturn the results of the 2020 election and supported Donald Trump's "big lie," alleging widespread voter fraud with unsubstantiated claims.






As tensions continue to percolate following the last, extremely tumultuous four years, Boebert remains a dangerous player on the national stage.

However, as shown by Twitter-the Bible does not back her up as much as she would like it to.
