'Girl I'm not going to jail': Twitter slams Lauren Boebert for suggesting 'it could be you' facing indictment

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is facing backlash from Twitter users for suggesting any of "you," too, could be prosecuted now that former President Donald Trump is facing indictment.

The MAGA congresswoman tweeted, "Never forget who these people truly are showing themselves to be. They want anyone who doesn’t agree with them locked up. First it was the J6ers. Today it is Trump. Tomorrow it could be you."

Twitter users immediately went after Boebert – many countering her assertion.

Tyler Ward: "'Tomorrow it could be you.' GIRL, I'M NOT GOING TO JAIL FOR PAYING HUSH MONEY TO NO STRIPPA?"

@bamart8: "Y'all's talking point, 'they could do it to you' is overused and tiring. Since I haven't paid off an escort, passed it off as attorney fees and lied about it various ways, while running for president, I'm confident I'm safe."
