Boebert response to backlash: Muslim Lawmaker Should Have Responded With A Joke About Me Having an AK-47 in the Elevator

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is once again downplaying backlash regarding her joke about Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar being a terrorist.

Boebert stated last week that if she were Omar, she would have responded with a joke.

“If a joke like that would have been made, and I was the receiving end of that, you know, I would have made something light of it,” Boebert told KOA’s Ross Kaminsky Dec. 10. “Like she could have said, ‘I was in an elevator with Lauren Boebert, but she didn’t have her AK-47, so it was fine.’ But I guess that’s just me.”
