Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is so bothered that people think she’s dumb that she made a 30-second video claiming that she’s not dumb and that it’s liberals who are the dumb ones.

The result? She made #LaurenBoebertIsSoDumb trend on Twitter again.

That hashtag calling Boebert dumb trends periodically when she makes headlines, and it’s not hard to see why. For example, she showed she doesn’t know what a pronoun is when she claimed her pronoun is “Patriot,” she lets her eight-year-old child play near her loaded rifles unsupervised, and she refers to transgender people as “transveshikes.”

Well, it’s been getting to her, so she finally decided to call out all those mean liberals on Twitter.

“The liberal hacks are at it again with their phony #LaurenBoebertIsSoDumb hashtag,” she said in the video. “Dumb? Really? I’m not the one trying to pass the largest tax increase in our nation’s history.” That’s not true – experts say that it’s far from the largest tax increase and would increase overall taxes “to levels roughly equal to the United States’ historical average since the early 1960s.”

“I’m not the one claiming a $7 trillion spending splurge will fix the massive inflation we’re experiencing here in our country,” she continued. She was referring to the Build Back Better plan that includes the $3.5 trillion bill Congress is currently cutting down significantly to get through the Senate. Inflation rose to an annual rate of 5.4% in September for the U.S. dollar, slightly higher than Americans usually experience but far from the 50% monthly – or 12,974% annual – rate generally accepted by economists as the definition of hyperinflation.

“And I’m certainly not so dumb that I think $7 trillion equals zero,” she said. She was referring to that $3.5 trillion spending bill again, which Democrats say will add “zero” dollars to the deficit because all the spending in it is offset by taxes on corporations and the wealthy.

“I’m not going to bother entertaining the haters who put this kind of stuff out,” she concluded, just after she finished entertaining her haters on Twitter with a video.

As some noted on Twitter, the video was popular enough to make #LaurenBoebertIsSoDumb trend again.
