Lauren Boebert Faces Backlash After Urging Biden to Lower Flags for Rush Limbaugh

Republican Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado has faced online backlash from critics after urging President Joe Biden to lower flags to half-staff to honor the life of Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh, an unflinchingly conservative radio host and icon, died Wednesday at the age of 70 after a battle with lung cancer. "I'm calling on Joe Biden to order flags to be flown at half-staff in honor of Rush Limbaugh," Boebert tweeted on Friday.

But her call was met with opposition.

News of Limbaugh's death dealt a heavy blow to conservatives who viewed him as a fearless truth-teller who wasn't afraid to fall on the wrong side of political correctness in his pursuit of standing against the tyranny of the elite, the idiocies of big government and the out-of-touch left-wing academics and journalists.

On the other hand, Democrats and critics have continued to oppose Limbaugh's rhetoric after his passing, with some attributing the country's political polarization to his alleged use of bigoted lies and "alternate" facts.

1. She feels trolling is the ticket to the White House.

But we all see she is a dolt.

3. It worked for Trump.

When it all boils down, Trump is really just the political equivalent of an internet troll.

She's pretty clearly channeling him intentionally. She even uses some of his dopey catchphrases.

7. "Alleged use of bigoted lies"

That's the angle they want to take on Limbaugh? How much evidence do they need to show he was a full throated bigoted/racist/sexist ass??
