The Lauren Boebert Getting Thrown Out of Beetlejuice Story Just Got a Whole Lot Worse

This is disgusting.

At this point, we wish that Congress would give Colorado’s Lauren Boebert the Beetlejuice treatment and just boot her for being an idiot.
We already knew about the right-wing Rep getting kicked out of the show the other night for creating a disturbance — notably vaping indoors, which has been illegal in Colorado since last year.

But it turns out that one of the people who complained about it was a pregnant woman. And she was sitting right behind Boebert.

She told the Denver Post that Boebert took multiple long videos during the show (against the rules of the theater), made out with her Democrat boyfriend, and sang loudly along with the performance with her hands waving in the air.

She says that when she asked the congresswoman to stop vaping, Boebert simply replied “no.” It got so bad that the pregnant woman asked staff if she could move seats when the intermission came. That prompted Boebert to call her a “sad and miserable person.”

Well, somebody is in this situation, but we don’t feel like it’s the pregnant woman.

Boebert has denied vaping in the theater, of course, since it could bring legal trouble. But there are multiple accounts of people personally witnessing her in the act.

Security footage shows Boebert and her companion being escorted from the show. When they were first asked to leave, they refused. An usher was quoted in a report obtained by the Post as saying, “They told me they would not leave. I told them that they need to leave the theater and if they do not, they will be trespassing. The patrons said they would not leave. I told them I would (be) going to get Denver Police. They said go get them.”

So. Not just being obnoxious, or insulting, or breaking the rules (and the law), but being downright belligerent. That sounds like the Lauren Boebert who might heckle Joe Biden during the State of the Union while he talked about his dead son.

Boebert and her companion were taken to the vestibule, where they still refused to leave, saying “Do you know who I am?” and “I will be contacting the mayor!”

Police were eventually summoned, and they stayed there until the couple left the theater entirely. But not until after Boebert had made an absolute ass of herself and trash-talked a pregnant woman while she was at it.
