Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) on Sunday blamed her “openly animated personality” for the disruptive behavior that saw her kicked out of a performance of the musical “Beetlejuice.”
“I was a little too eccentric. I am very well known for having a lively personality. Maybe an overtly animated personality,” the far-right congresswoman told One American News Network’s Dan Ball.
“Me too,” replied Ball, who then appeared to wink at the far-right lawmaker.
“I was laughing, I was singing, I was having a fantastic time, I was told to calm things down a little, which I did,” Boebert recalled, saying she was only reprimanded when she started taking photos inside the auditorium.
“I did it too. I sneaked them. Shh,” responded Ball, who later suggested that Boebert was the target of liberal members of the public.
Earlier in Boebert’s interview with Ball, she tried to pass off his removal from Denver’s Buell Theater last weekend as a nothing-burger, suggesting it was a distraction from the launch of an impeachment inquiry by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). on President Joe Biden and the possibility of a government shutdown.
It was a stark change in tone from the contrite apology she issued after surveillance video showed she lied about not vaping during the show, and highlighted the true extent of his conduct.
“I really didn’t remember vaping that evening when I discussed the events of the night with my campaign manager,” she said at the time. “We understand what that looks like.”
