Colorado House Rep. Lauren Boebert trashes pin representing child massacred at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde

Advocates for Moms Demand Action, a gun violence prevention group, handed Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) a pin on July 18 honoring 10-year old Maite Rodriguez, one of 19 children massacred in the Robb Elementary School shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on May 24, 2022.

Maite’s body was so mangled by gunfire that she was only identifiable by her favorite pair of green Converse tennis shoes with the heart drawn over the right toe that she was wearing that day. Maite, her fellow students and teachers were killed with an AR-style rifle. (Click here for a demonstration of why AR-15 style rifles are so much more damaging to the body than other types of firearms.)

Boebert promptly walked to a trash can with the pin and flier explaining its significance and tossed it into the can, right in front of the people who had handed it to her.

  1. She seems to be the kind of person who will never understand unless she loses one of her own children, God forbid.

    Jesus said, “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” Matthew 35:40

    If she doesn’t apologize and seek to comfort those folks, she’s already in trouble with her maker.

  2. Back in the days before Freedom Caucus behavior became commonplace, a politician could come up with a bland but polite “sorry for your loss, but I disagree with your viewpoint” response.
    Boebert apparently either hasn’t developed that skill or doesn’t consider it necessary. Possibly both. Apparently her tiny fraction-of-a-percentage-point win was not a call to change.
    Looking forward to 2024 and a career change for our gal Boebert.

  3. Wait, our “Representative” is actually a trashy high school dropout that hollers about Christianity but in reality can’t even spell Christianity?


    Exactly which part of this video is supposed to surprise me? She’ll probably fundraise off of it.

  4. Persons such as the unesteemed Colorado 3rd District US House rep., Lauren Q-bert, stains “christianity,” as does her leader, Orange Julius Caesar Antichrist, DJT. Between the two, they drive nails into the coffin of the White Nationalist christian republican Party. Let sane voters consign them both to the ash heap of history. Sane voters, arise, donate, speak up, and dump the rump!

  5. The detached dismissal of the activists by boebert that we witnessed in this recent incident is sickening/disturbing but not surprising to most.
    She again confirms that she is not a walk- in -your- shoes kind of a gal. Pathetic.

  6. A memento from a dead child and she can’t even just take it and walk away. Or spare some nice words? Two words I can think of: Adam Frisch. Get this trash out of here.

  7. Boebert is emotionally immature. She is not able to critically think; she has no idea what empathy is; she has not a clue how to carry herself and lastly, her high school drop-out status speaks volumes. She is a terrible representative and an embarrassment to Colorado and specifically, Mesa County.
