Lauren Boebert, the congresswoman from Colorado’s 3rd district, has managed to add yet another feather to her cap of controversy. This time, she’s taking her divisive act beyond the halls of Congress and into the world of theater. With a display that included disruption, vaping, and alleged groping, at the Broadway musical, “Beetlejuice” Boebert has managed to craft a masterclass in setting a less-than-ideal example for children across America.
When it comes to making an entrance, Boebert certainly knows how to steal the spotlight. At the “Beetlejuice” show, she made her presence known by reportedly shouting “This is a joke!” during a particularly raucous scene. While some may argue that her outburst was just an attempt to express her displeasure with the performance, it’s essential to remember that the theater is a place where people come to enjoy a show, not to endure political commentary. Boebert’s actions remind us that not every stage is the right stage for political grandstanding. While freedom of speech is a cherished right, it’s important to exercise it thoughtfully and considerately, especially in spaces where people have gathered for reasons other than politics. The theater is a space for art, creativity, and storytelling, not a political rally.
Regarding theatrics, Boebert’s vaping skills are second to none. Who needs smoke machines when you have a sitting member of Congress blowing clouds of vapor into the air during a Broadway show? It’s clear that Boebert has a unique talent for making herself the center of attention, even in a room full of people who came to watch professional actors perform.
But wait, there’s more! In a shocking display of poor judgment, Boebert allegedly decided to grab the spotlight in a whole new way. Reports suggest that she was caught on camera appearing to grope the behind of a performer during the show. Because nothing says “I’m a responsible and respectful public figure” quite like engaging in inappropriate behavior in a crowded theater filled with children.
One could argue that Boebert’s actions at “Beetlejuice” were simply a performance of their own, a commentary on the absurdity of politics in America. Or, perhaps it was an avant-garde attempt to redefine theater etiquette. After all, who needs silence and respect for performers when you can have vape clouds and handsy congresswomen?
