Following widespread backlash following her behavior at a Denver theater, Rep. Lauren Boebert continues to be the topic of discussion as radio show host Howard Stern graphically comments on his thoughts on Boebert’s actions that evening, calling it a “disgrace to this country.”
The congresswoman, a Republican from Colorado, was kicked out of the Denver production of Beetlejuice on September 10 following complaints of vaping, singing and disruption. Surveillance footage later released appeared to show her and a male companion, now identified as Quinn Gallagher, touching each other intimately.
On Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, a caller asked Stern to share his thoughts on the incident.
Former NBCUniversal executive Mike Sington posted onformerly Twitter, sharing a clip from Stern’s show on Monday that was verified by News week.
“Howard Stern spends four minutes absolutely destroying Lauren Boebert. Warning: do not perform in front of children,” Sington wrote on X.
As the audio continues, Stern is heard discussing in detail how he did not approve of Boebert’s actions or appearance.
This comes after Boebert has already faced widespread backlash from various groups, including political leaders.
Although Boebert issued an apology following the incident, as more information about the incident and Gallagher surfaces, the more criticism Boebert continues to face.
In her statement, the House Republican said, “These past few days have been difficult and humiliating, and I am truly sorry for the unwanted attention my Sunday evening in Denver brought to the community. Although none of my actions or words as a private citizen that night were intended to be malicious or intended to cause harm, the reality is that they did and I regret it.”
In the audio, Stern criticizes Boebert as a congresswoman and her morals by alluding that Boebert was a liar when she first denied the vaping allegation before the security footage was released.
“I don’t know what’s going on in Colorado. What are they doing? Stupid people in Colorado. How can we elect someone like her?” » said Stern.
Additionally, Stern also criticized the need for Boebert to be in office after his behavior, particularly regarding his inappropriate behavior with Gallagher, and the fact that no disciplinary action was taken.
“I mean, how did she win an election? How can a woman like that win an election? I mean. You know, there are certain standards: once you’re caught trying to lie like that, goodbye! But no one quit,” Stern added.
Although some on cited his previous past. In the mid-1990s, Stern allegedly made what some might call shameful comments about police brutality, homosexuality and women.
“Wait everyone…Howard Stern is going to lecture everyone on decency”, a user responded to the video.
News week contacted The Howard Stern Show via email for additional comment.
