Lauren Boebert Proudly And Publicly Announced That Her 17-Year-Old Son Is Making Her “A 36-Year-Old Grandmother” And People Had A Lot Of Thoughts

I'm not so sure I'd brag about that, girl.

In a truly bizarre twist of events, controversial, staunchly Conservative Colorado House Rep. Lauren Boebert has publicly, and might I add quite proudly, announced to the world that her 17-year-old son will be making her “a 36-year-old grandmother” come next month.

Boebert’s somewhat unsettling public announcement came during her recent appearance and speech at an event hosted by the conservative non-profit Moms for America group.

Popular Twitter account, Patriot Takes, took to social media with a clip of Boebert’s speech, in which she’s proudly making the announcement that she’s soon to be a “GiGi,” and as you can imagine, the footage went viral across Twitter almost instantly. Boebert happily tells the crowd that her 17-year-old son Tyler, one of four boys she shares with her highly-controversial husband Jayson Boebert, is expecting a baby boy with his girlfriend in April.

The 36-year-old gun-toting, alt-Right congresswoman told the crowd, “Now, any of you who have young children who are giving life, there’s some questions that pop up. There’s some fear that arises.”

Of course, Boebert wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity to peddle some of the worst talking points the Republican party has to offer while she was there.

“There’s something special about rural conservative communities,” Lauren told the crowd. “They value life. If you look at teen pregnancy rates throughout the nation, well, they’re the same, [in] rural and urban areas. However, abortion rates are higher in urban areas. Teen moms’ rates are higher in rural conservative areas, because they understand the preciousness of a life that it’s about to be born.”

Multiple studies have stood in dispute to Boebert’s claims, indicating that teen mom rates have little to do with pro-life values and far more to do with lower socioeconomic status in typically Conservative areas.

Lauren herself was a teen mother and had to drop out of high school as a direct result of her ill-timed pregnancy and has received an influx of backlash in recent weeks over her push to blast and ban sex education courses in classrooms, despite her personal experience with teen pregnancy.

“There are schools that are teaching worse than just gender ideology,” Boebert said in her recent CPAC speech. “I mean they have comprehensive sex-ed. They’re teaching kids how to have and enjoy sex, and even same-sex sex.”

Suffice it to say, Americans had plenty of thoughts on the matter:

Honestly, I can’t say that’s something I’d be bragging about, girl.
