Boebert Slams Swalwell After It Appears He Compares Her to Highland Park Parade Gunman


Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) fired back at Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) after he appeared to compare her to the suspect in a mass shooting in Illinois.

On Tuesday, Swalwell posted a tweet showing a photo of Boebert holding a gun next to a photo of the suspected gunman, Robert Crimo III.

“Let’s start drawing straight lines,” Swalwell wrote.

Crimo allegedly killed six people and wounded dozens more during the Highland Park, Illinois, July Fourth parade.

During an interview with Fox News, Boebert told the outlet she understands “that Eric Swalwell isn’t a fan of our Constitutional rights and is desperate to distract from his repeated political failures, but the only straight line that needs to be drawn is from Eric Swalwell to Fang Fang to the Chinese Communist Party.”

She continued, “I will make sure that line gets drawn when we take back the House.”

Boebert explained law-abiding gun owners “won’t be smeared and disarmed every time a California failed presidential candidate rolls out of bed with a Chinese spy and tries to blame us for the conduct of others.”

In an email to Fox News, Swalwell’s communications director, Jessica Gail, claimed that “no elected leader in America fetishizes a dangerous person’s access to military-style weapons more than Rep. Boebert.”

She added, “And we are not going to stop calling her and her pro-killer colleagues out.”

Boebert is not the only Republican to receive criticism amid the shooting.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) received backlash after questioning when the nation would “have an honest conversation about drug abuse, mental illness, and SSRI’s???”

She added, “And deadly side effects. Are we really going to keep pretending? Or covering for Big Pharma? Because I’m absolutely done with the political plays on this BS.”

Several critics were quick to comment on the tweet.

CNN reported Crimo has not yet been formally charged in the shooting.
