Lauren Boebert Tried To Mock Greta Thunberg's 'Blah Blah Blah' Protest Chant—And It Totally Backfired

As the COP26 climate summit got under way in Glasgow yesterday, Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert, an endorser of several conspiracy theories and a climate change denier, attempted to mock Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg's messaging on the topic.

Reprising her viral catchphrase from the Youth Climate Summit in September, where she criticized Democratic President Joe Biden and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson's approaches to climate change, Thunberg called for "no more blah, blah, blah" from world leaders at the Glasgow gathering.

Boebert took to Twitter to attack Thunberg's message in a tweet that, as often happens with Boebert, made little sense. So naturally, Twitter quickly turned her tweet into yet another self-own for the freshman Congresswoman.

See her tweet mocking Thunberg below.


Boebert's attempted drag was in response to a quote from Thunberg during a protest outside the venue in Glasgow, in which she implored her fellow protestors not to accept world leaders' inaction.

"No more blah, blah, blah. No more whatever the fu*k they're doing in there."

Boebert, pretending not to understand sarcasm, then used the popular "tell me without telling me" meme from TikTok to attempt to clap back at Thunberg.

"Tell me you have absolutely no idea why you're protesting without telling me you have absolutely no idea what you're protesting."

Boebert has become known for similar gaffes and hot takes that fall flat.

In July, she attempted to link mutations of COVID-19 and communism in a tweet that made very little sense. The same week, she accused Democrats of violating their constitutional oath, seemingly unaware of her and her party's unconstitutional attempts to overturn the 2020 election.

And last week, presumably meaning to once again accuse Democrats of election fraud, Boebert tweeted a Bible verse about "secrets coming to light" just three days after a bombshell article in Rolling Stone reported that she is one of several members of Congress whom Republican informants say played a pivotal role in planning the events of January 6.

As with all of those and so many other viral faceplants, Twitter immediately seized on Boebert's tweet and turned it right back around on her.











It's only Tuesday, but it seems like it's already been a long week for Boebert: After yesterday's online drubbing, Boebert was once again Twitter's laughingstock today for listing herself as a representative of the wrong state on an FEC filing.
