Lauren Boebert Q&A At Colorado High School Is Condemned By Newspaper – By Lee Moran (Huffpost) / Mar 18 2023
The Durango Herald explained its discomfort at the far-right Colorado congresswoman’s speech to students.
Colorado newspaper The Durango Herald has called out far-right Rep. Lauren Boebert’s (R-Colo.) recent controversial visit to a high school.
Boebert’s speech and Q&A session with students at Dolores High School in Dolores on Wednesday made the media outlet “uncomfortable” because “her talk ventured beyond governance into political territory,” its board wrote in an editorial Friday.
“Like her or otherwise, Boebert is a polarizing politician,” the Herald said about Boebert, a Donald Trump-devotee who in the past has embraced QAnon conspiracy theories. Ahead of the event, representatives for gun-loving Boebert were forced amid fears from parents to confirm she would not be carrying a weapon during the visit.
Per the newspaper, Boebert talked about “moral decay” and railed against students’ liberties that were “infringed on during the pandemic.”
