Lauren Boebert Tried To Politicize Cicadas. Twitter Users Told Her To Bug Off.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) Was stunned with an odd take on cicadas.
The QAnon-pro-Republican tried to turn the billion-dollar Brood-X insects wreaking havoc in the US into a political attack on other members of Congress, particularly House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
"The media must stop pretending that the cicadas are the worst creatures in DC," Boebert tweeted on Thursday. "I can list a few worse, starting with the House Speaker."
The media needs to stop pretending the cicadas are the worst creatures in DC. I can list a few worse, starting with the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Twitter users poked fun at Boebert for apparently lacking self-esteem, citing her and other Donald Trump acolytes they thought should be on the list instead:
@laurenboebert you, MTG, Gaetz and many other Republicans are just below comments. You are hideous. https://t.co/aAhgTXChLb

2. Marjorie Taylor Greene
3. Matt Gaetz
4. Madison Cawthorn
5. Lauren Boebert
You're part of the problem, Lauren.

Imagine if you had the audacity to tweet that your co-workers are "creatures" worse than pestilential insects. What vulgar, pathetic behavior. https://t.co/EMvy7xHgjb

You're at the top of this list. Greene, Gaetz, McCarthy, Hawley are honorable mentions along with McConnell

The lack of self-esteem is terrifying.

Yes, you are right, but I would have started with yourself or one of your insurgent co-conspirators. #JusticeMatters #GOPBetrayedAmerica the #GOPDomesticTerrorists have chosen #GOPCorruptionOverCountry! https://t.co/V6Xy67JG6Y

They have a lot in common with the cicadas ... an annoying, persistent buzz that never seems to end.
