Denver news anchor Kyle Clark in a commentary November 17 on his show “Next, with Kyle Clark” said journalists are holding Republican Colorado House Rep. Lauren Boebert to a lower standard than every other legislator because:
“If we held her to the same standard as every other elected Republican and Democrat in Colorado, we would be here near nightly chronicling the cruel, false, and bigoted things that Boebert says for attention and fundraising.”
So in an attempt to keep up with Rep. Boebert’s avalanche of cruel and vile behavior in the name of fundraising, here’s a recent one for you, and it’s about as cruel as you can get:
On November 20, Boebert posted a photo of herself on Twitter at a gun show in Pueblo wearing a T-shirt that made fun of the accidental death of 42 year old Ukrainian cinematographer Halayna Hutchins, who was fatally shot October 21 when a prop firearm accidentally discharged during production of the western movie “Rust,” starring Alec Baldwin.
Baldwin had been handed the gun by an assistant director, who assured him the gun was “cold,” or contained no live ammunition. Baldwin was practicing drawing the gun for the movie when it discharged a live round, hitting Hutchins in the abdomen. It has not been determined how or why the firearm contained a round of live ammunition.
Hutchins was just 42 years old, and an accomplished cinematographer and in the prime of her career. She left behind a husband and 9 year old son.
Boebert thinks this is very funny.
