If there is anything that I would consider a common personality trait among members of the Republican Party, whether they’re notable names in the US government or your average American citizen, it’s their overwhelming sense of self-importance.
Genuinely, you’d be hard-pressed to find a single soul in your life who’s more cocky, arrogant, conceited, and borderline clinically narcissistic than a Republican.
These people walk around, day in and day out, with the full belief that they are personally God’s gift to humanity. Hell, many of them truly and fully believe that they were personally sent to this country by God himself, like some sort of ethereal Amazon package — complete with Prime shipping.
I mean, still to this day, there are people walking the streets of this country who believe in their heart of hearts, soul of souls, that Donald J. Trump is the second coming of Christ — including Donald J. Trump.
Their arrogance is so deep-seated that they don’t even attempt to try to hide it under the guise of some fake modesty and humility.

Nah, they’re just out here declaring to the whole world (or at least anyone who’s left that will listen to their nonsense) that they were hand-picked by Jesus H. Christ himself.
Colorado’s controversial House Rep. Lauren Boebert is a perfect example of what I’m talking about here.
Boebert recently gave a speech, in which she proclaimed to the crowd that she ended up in Congress because God himself personally called on her to do so because her presence on the Hill would lead people to accept and embrace Jesus.
She kicked off her schpiel with a less-than-humble brag about her 10-point victory over a 5-term Republican incumbent before declaring, “God told me it would be a sign and a wonder to the unbeliever.”
Seriously, listen for yourself:

You can imagine what social media, actual Americans, thought about Lauren’s self-important, religious declaration:
Also Lauren: Ted Cruz told me to call him god

Did God tell Rep. Lauren Boebert to lie through her teeth and say Rep. Eric Swalwell had a relationship with a Chinese spy, all in a feeble attempt to defend Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz.REP. Swalwell was actually cooperating with the FBI to nail the spy.https://t.co/50J7UK07QV

Why does no one record their conversations with God? 🤷🏻♂️

God also spoke to me. God told me Lauren Boobert can’t count to two without taking her shirt off.

What did Bog say about her husband exposing himself to teenage girls at a bowling alley?

Umm…It’s “a wonder” alright; it’s a wonder that Bobo even manages to dress herself on a daily basis, let alone, misuse and abuse the title ‘Congresswoman’.🤦 pic.twitter.com/wYeWNfI7iv

The fact that she’s a believer made me go hard for atheism. I never want to be that wretched

I guess she has to believe that God called on her, because we certainly didn’t.
