“BREAKING: Lauren Boebert just completely humiliated herself, tweeting ‘Two Words: Let’s Go Brandon,’” tweeted Jon Cooper, the former National Finance Chair of Draft Biden 2016. “That’s THREE words. She’s such a friggin’ moron!”
Actor George Takei wrote: “She can’t…count.”
Activist David Hogg also responded to Boebert’s tweet, writing: “Three words: You’re an idiot.”
And talk show host Chip Franklin tweeted: “Is Lauren Boebert dumb as dirt or just unable to count?”
However, others said those mocking the congresswoman had missed that her tweet was actually a jibe at the president.

She appeared to be repeating an error Biden made during remarks delivered during a visit to a Volvo facility in Hagerstown, Maryland, on Friday.
“Let me start off with two words: Made in America,” Biden had said in his remarks.
Some of Boebert’s defenders said her critics had taken the congresswoman’s “bait.”
“The left falling for Lauren Boebert’s bait is absolutely inevitable… and hilarious,” tweeted editor-at-large for the Spanish-language conservative media platform El American.
Commentator Allie Beth Stuckey tweeted: “That leftists don’t know she’s trolling Biden’s recent gaffe further proves how perpetually removed they are from reality.
“They say the things they do because they literally have no idea what’s going on.

“This is classic,” John Ziegler wrote. “The left presumes Boebert is a moron & their leftist propaganda outlets never told them Biden just dramatically declared, ‘two words: made in America,’ so they think she said something moronic, when in actuality it was even more brilliant than she even realized!”
Others said they got the joke, but stood by their criticism of Boebert.
“I get the joke,” wrote actor Greg Rikaart. “I could delete the tweet OR stand by the fact that Rep. Boebert really is dumb and unfit to represent the people of Colorado…”
Author Tony Posnanski added: “Lauren Boebert’s tweet with two words was a feeble attempt to mock Joe Biden. The truth is Biden has done a lot for America in the last two years and Boebert is a dumb worthless piece of garbage.”
Newsweek has contacted Boebert’s office for comment.
