Andy Boian, a Democratic strategist and political commentator in Colorado minced no words when discussing the recent debate performance of Republican Representative Lauren Boebert. He criticized Boebert harshly for her debate skills after she went against Democrat Adam Frisch and was very harsh, even going as far as to mock her, labeling her a “joke” and an “embarrassment” to her state, her district, and her country.
“She is a joke,” Boian stated bluntly. “This whole reality that she’s mocking her congressional seat? She’s a United States Congresswoman. And to act like that is an embarrassment to Colorado.”
“It’s an embarrassment to the Third Congressional District,” he went on. “It’s an embarrassment to the country. She’s a joke.”
Boin also took aim at Republican commentator Michael Fields who appeared on the television program alongside him and chose only to complain about the performance of the debate’s moderator, rather than any of the participants.
“Literally the only argument that Michael has is that we should have better moderators,” he said.
Boian also threw Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene who represents the state of Georgia into the mix, also labeling her as a “joke” that should have been “voted out.”
“Marjorie Taylor Greene is a joke. Both should be voted out. I don’t think, unfortunately, Boebert is going to be voted out this time, but the only response Republicans have is we should look at the moderator? I mean, give me a break. You’ve got to look at the actual person in the job doing the work.”
“He has no defense for Lauren Boebert,” Boian quipped. “She is a clown.”
Boebert faced quite a bit of flack for the very start of the debate in which she took aim at the moderator for a tweet that had been made several years prior.
“Before I agree to the rules, I do have one request for you,” she said. “Edie [Sonn], can you please disclose to the audience that you publicly supported my 2020 Democratic candidate, Diane Mitsch Bush, and can you please disclose any other roles that you have had with Democratic candidates in the past?” Boebert inquired.
The moderator declined doing so, insisting that such a request was not pertinent to the debate at hand, nor to Sonn’s own role within it as a peacekeeper.
“Congresswoman Boebert, this is not about me tonight,” Sonn replied. “This is about you and your opponent. I am here to be the traffic cop while these panelists ask questions, and I respectfully ask that you garee to the terms of this debate.”
“If you will not do so, then we can close things down right now,” Sonn added.
Boebert declined calling quits on the debate and agreed to the relevant terms but did not escape criticism from those who found her performance to be lackluster.
