Colorado newspaper condemns Lauren Boebert’s high school Q&A

Colorado newspaper, The Durango Herald, denounced the controversial visit of far-right Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) to a local high school this week.

Boebert’s speech and Q&A with Dolores de Dolores High School students on Wednesday made the outlet “uncomfortable” because “his speech ventured beyond governance into political territory. “, wrote its editorial board on Friday.

“Like her or otherwise, Boebert is a polarizing politician,” the Herald said of the devotee of Donald Trump, who in the past has embraced QAnon conspiracy theories. Amid parental fears in the run-up to the event, reps for gun-loving Boebert have confirmed she will not be carrying a gun while visiting the school.

“Apparently she also told the students that they should know about these issues and motivate them to stand up for their freedom,” the board wrote. “Come on! It’s Boebert’s mark on stage in front of students without their parents present.

The Herald suggested she may have inspired students with “her personal journey from manager at McDonald’s to representative in the hallowed halls of Congress”.

Instead, she “did not separate herself and her politics from the machinery of government”, he charged.
