Lauren Boebert: 'I get kind of sad' when 'positive' constituents call my office
United States Representative Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) told right-wing twice-convicted felon Steven Bannon on Wednesday's edition of his conspiracy theory radio show that she prefers when angry people call her congressional office.
"It's really easy for staff to disregard someone who their member does not represent and they say, 'Well, call your member of Congress.' So be sure you're calling them but tell them to vote 'no,'" Boebert said in reference to the pending legislation to raise the debt ceiling that will be voted upon by the House on Wednesday.
Boebert also revealed that she contacts "other" lawmakers immediately after advising Bannon's listeners against doing that.
"I still call other offices," Boebert continued. "People call mine all day long. Sometimes I answer the phones. Uh, it's actually..."
Bannon interjected that "some of those are positive and maybe some of those are Democrats."
A chuckling Boebert then lamented that "I kind of get sad when it's the positive ones. I was like, man, I was looking forward to a fight here. And uh, you know, I'm like, oh, this is a real one."
Bannon observed, "You, you like fighting. You're from Colorado."
