Rep. Lauren Boebert Mocked For Wanton Abuse Of The English Language

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Yahoo Sports

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) recently experienced an odd moment while reading a Bible passage. She seemed to confuse senseless murder with a dumpling.

Boebert, a conspiracy theorist who has embraced QAnon extremism, was reciting a passage from Romans that ― in "The Message" edition she was reading from ― referred to "wanton killing." Except Boebert pronounced it more like "wonton," the delicious dumpling often found in soup at Chinese restaurants.
"I don't know what a wonton killing is," she said in the footage posted online by PatriotTakes, which monitors right-wing media. "I'm gonna have to look that one up, but it sounds interesting."

Sounds like a joke but it is not..just like MT Greene who warned about the "gazpacho" police now this dope rails against killing wontons!

God help us all!!

I need to ask my Chinese wife is there is a dish called 杀的馄饨. I know there is something called 口水鸡, but not 杀的馄饨。

但是,那个东西是一个非常大王八蛋。
