GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert’s MLK Day Tribute Backfires

Far-right Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) on Monday joined thelonglist of Republicans whose attempts to honor Martin Luther King Jr. have gone awry.

Boebert marked MLK Day by quoting the late civil rights leader on Twitter.

She wrote:

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“On this day, we remember his incredible legacy and contributions to this great nation,” Boebert added.

Boebert’s tribute didn’t sit well with critics.
