Lauren Boebert, Paragon of Virtue, Says 10 Commandments Should Be in Every U.S. Classroom

Welcome back to Barf Bag. 

Perhaps the most fucked-up thing to happen this week was Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry (R) gleefully signing a bill requiring all public school classrooms to display the 10 Commandments, and daring people to sue him. (The ACLU did almost immediately, saying the law violates the separation of church and state.)

Sure, conservatives want to destroy public schools, but some people are getting a bit too excited about the development given their extracurricular activities. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), for example, said she not only supported the move but hoped it would go nationwide—which is certainly rich coming from a person who said her ex-husband only exposed himself to a teen because the girl begged him to and was herself caught on video getting handsy with her date and vaping at a traveling production of Beetlejuice. The venue called the cops on her for causing a disturbance and she then lied about the vaping part.

Boebert was on Steve Bannon‘s podcast, War Room, on Thursday and he asked her if people would be “melting down” if schools in her rural district had to display the 10 Commandments. “Certainly not,” Boebert said. “I think this is something we need all throughout our nation.” She praised Landry and called him “a great friend” before saying she was glad he signed the bill, because “we need morals back in our nation, back in our schools.” Folks, you heard it from the paragon of morality herself.

The venue for this discussion is extra amusing because Bannon has to report to prison on July 1 for contempt of Congress after he refused to comply with a subpoena from the House January 6 Committee. Two saints right here!

Anyway, a quick reminder that Boebert is running in a different, more conservative district this year and is not doing very well. Prayers up that she’s sent into retirement.
