Rep. Lauren Boebert To Democrat Who Criticized Her Gun Display: ‘Do Your Dishes, Hon’

Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert took a shot at a Democrat colleague who criticized her gun display saying, “Do your dishes, Hon.”

Boebert drew a little heat from anti-gun Democrats after a Zoom call with other lawmakers in which guns were sitting unsecured on a shelf behind her.

Rep. Jared Huffman (D-MO) indicated the display made him concerned for his safety once the pandemic subsides and Congressional panels are able to meet in person.

“If somebody wants to have a shrine to their gun fetish as a Zoom backdrop in their private life they can do that,” Huffman said.

“But this is our ‘hearing room,’ and at some point we will get past the COVID epidemic, and we’ll all start showing up in person, and our safety and our ability to conduct business civilly without feeling threatened is a relevant consideration, unfortunately.”

Is Huffman under the assumption she’s going to be toting all of those guns with her to Congress?

Lauren Boebert Fights For Gun Rights

Another Democrat lawmaker who took umbrage with Lauren Boebert’s display was Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) who said the guns were more dangerous than her kitchen sink.

“I always thought my dirty dishes piled up and accumulating bacteria were the most dangerous thing in a Zoom background,” scoffed Porter on Twitter.

The Democrat tagged ‘Room Rater,’ an account known for judging people’s living room and office spaces.

That group didn’t let her down, rating Boebert’s room as a zero out of ten and somehow taking a jab at the Republican as being a “fascist.”

“Unsafe gun storage is no laughing matter,” they wrote. “Is this Fascist fraulein really the best Colorado’s 3rd [congressional district] can do?”

Fires Back at Porter

Boebert isn’t the type to just sit back and accept the criticism and, as such, she fired back at Porter in epic fashion.

“It’s kind of alarming that she has so many dishes in her sink collecting bacteria,” Boebert said when asked to comment during a Fox News interview.

“Do your dishes, Hon.”

Boebert also took aim at Huffman calling him a “creep” and criticizing “the left’s disdain for the Constitution” which she said “was on full display” during the committee meeting.

Lost in the Democrat pearl-clutching was the fact that Boebert offered a strong defense of the Second Amendment during the hearing.

“We all took an oath to uphold and secure the Constitution, every single one of us,” she said.

“Our first act as members of Congress was to take our oath of office, and please allow me to remind you a portion of that oath, the chair and every other member here solemnly swore that we would support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” she added.

“The Second Amendment is very much a part of the Constitution of the United States.”

The GOP lawmaker went on to counter Huffman’s claims of a gun fetish by saying she is “busy fighting against the left’s real fetish for power and stripping Americans of their constitutional rights.”

  • We sure do. Vote out all democrats that won't work with the Republicans. This is the way it should work, but the democrats won't do it. They want all the power and money they
    can get.

  • How does a guy, or real man, in congress just not call Huffman a little bitch? Where are all the men these days?

  • don't say things like that to a democrat, they will cry and cry and cry, til they have flooded the u.s. with their fake tears.

  • I was around in the 50's and watched the same television programming. What you claim about the people and the police is total hog wash.

  • Woman Picking Up Gun for Protection Is Among Shootout Victims
    One of the victims of a chaotic shootout at a Louisiana gun shop was a grandmother picking up a weapon for protection who was caught in the crossfire. Veronica Billiot, 59, was one of three people fatally shot at the Jefferson Gun Outlet in Metairie on Saturday—which was apparently sparked by an argument between a customer and a clerk. Police believe that the customer, Joshua Williams, 27, shot employee Herbert Fischbach, 47—and then Williams and Billiot were fatally shot as others inside began firing. “She was completely innocent,” Billiot’s sister, Linda, told reporters. Two other people were wounded but are expected to survive.
