Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) argued that liberals’ support for trans rights proves that they like men more than women, and she said that actress Drew Barrymore’s recent interview of a trans influencer proves it.
“Liberals believe men are better at being women than women are,” she wrote. “A liberal’s world is a man’s world… oh, the irony!”
It was unclear if she was referring to anything specific, leaving her followers confused until, a few minutes later, she tweeted an image of Barrymore kneeling in front of trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney. The image has been shared on rightwing media all morning. It’s from a moving interview this past Monday where Barrymore and Mulvaney talked about how much they’re inspired by each other, and they both ended up on the floor.
That didn’t stop conservatives from saying that the image represented not just the entire interview or the whole of Barrymore’s politics, but how liberals everywhere think everyone should bow before trans people. Boebert joined in, obviously not having seen the interview.
Boebert’s followers didn’t seem to be up to speed and she was mocked for trying to stir hate for no reason. After she posted her follow-up, she was mocked for worrying more about a celebrity interview than her actual job.
A Twitter user also pointed out that Barrymore often ends up on the floor in her interviews.
