We need a non-woke military. Better yet, an anti-woke military,” she said in May. “I’m a Christian.

The fact that Boebert will choose to date a Democrat who owns a business that hosts drag shows has been mocked by many online. “And definitely don’t take [kids] to see Beetlejuice (especially when you are in the audience),” Democratic National Committee boss Jaime Harrison said.

Star Trek actor George Takei commented, “Rep. Lauren Boebert, who urged parents to take their kids to CHURCH not DRAG SHOWS, was caught in a public performance of Beetlejuice, a children’s show, groping and getting groped by her date. I’ve had it with their hypocritical moralizing. They have no standing to judge or constrain ANYONE else’s private life.”
