Gun lovin’ Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) misfired when she failed to send a simple Father’s Day tweet to constituents.

Instead, she decided to try to troll liberals with her misogynistic missive, but instead of only irritating Democrats, she managed to pull both parties together. Everyone agreed it was simply in bad taste.

Boebert, one of the MAGA extremists elected to the House of Representatives, was even outclassed by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-FL) who sent well wishes to fathers nationwide. Boebert neglected to even mention “fathers,” “dads,” or even “guardians.”

The congresswoman has a long and sordid background surrounding her own parentage that involves her mother, the man DNA evidence proved was her father, and a former professional wrestler. The two men are brothers.

“Happy Father’s Day to all the non-birthing people!” she tweeted before following up with another tweet that said, “Ladies, happy sandwich making day!”

The reaction from both sides of the political spectrum was swift as users with MAGA slogans and others sporting rainbow Pride responded.

“My 6 year old adopted daughter laughs at your inability to act like an adult,” one replied.

“Boebert can’t comment without adding an element of cheap,” another added.

Others, reacting to the sandwich dig, quickly pointed out that Boebert’s restaurant, where waitstaff openly carry firearms, gave several customers food poisoning.

“Why would ladies need to make sandwiches today? You’re so odd and so entrenched in the patriarchy,” one asked.

“Given Bobo’s history with sandwiches,” a user snarked. “I’m not sure this isn’t inciting violence.”

Last month, the GOP Congresswoman tweeted “my pronoun is patriot” & got mocked for not knowing what a pronoun is.
