Lauren Boebert short-circuits trying to compare Biden to ‘Prince John’

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) spent the State of the Union last week heckling President Biden, including a solemn moment when he invoked his late son Beau.

She took it back to the President on Tuesday night…or at least she tried.

“I don’t know who’s running the feds these days,” she told Jesse Watters on Fox News. “Joe Biden or Prince John, uh, of, uh, ehh, uhh…Prince John.”

“They tax us into poverty,” Boebert added.

Boebert was trying to reference Prince John, King Richard’s son who liked to tax the poor in Disney’s Robin Hood, as she clarified on Wednesday morning. “For the record, Prince John > Joe Biden”, she tweetedwith an image of the cartoon lion.

Boebert has been mocked for the flub, including by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), whom Boebert has repeatedly attacked for being a Muslim American. She has repeatedly described her as part of the “Jihad squad”, and last fall went on a rant about how Omar could be a terrorist. Omar said Boebert hung up on her on a call to discuss the remarks.

“Prince John from Prince John”, Omar tweeted with a laughing emoji in response to Boebert’s Biden diss attempt on Tuesday.

Boebert expressed the need to increase fossil fuel production in America. “Cutting off Russian oil is the right decision,” she tweeted earlier on Tuesday. “To do so without increasing American energy production is folly.” She later teased her appearance on Watters’ show by tweeting that they would discuss the need for “DRILL BABY DRILL,” the same phrase that adorned a jacket she wore at State of the Union.

She also missed his attempt to hit Biden on US energy production.

“Here’s Biden’s energy policy: anyone but America,” Boebert said. “OPEC, Venezuela, you name it. If it’s not American energy, Joe doesn’t want it.
