Lauren Boebert Doesn’t Apologize – CNNPolitics
The call, um, didn’t go well. After Omar demanded a public apology from Boebert and Boebert refused, Democrats hanged Republicans.
At that point, Boebert took to social media (of course!) to make it clear that she wasn’t really apologetic.
Add to that and you get this: Boebert not only doesn’t regret what she said about Omar, but she actually believes it. This was not a short statement for Boebert; That’s a real belief.
All of that begs one simple question: What will House Republicans do to address this problem?
If the past is the prologue, the answer is nothing. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has resisted punishing the likes of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Paul Gosar for past non-political comments, leaving the job to the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. to punish them.
Considering that, the real decision may be in the hands of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Does she want to keep? again vote to fine again Republicans for making offensive comments? And if not, why not?
Point: Unfortunately, the Republican establishment responds positively to trash like this from Boebert. Which means she is encouraged to do it – regardless of the consequences in the House.
