Boebert faces students’ musical protest during “liberation camp” visit

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) made a visit to a pro-Palestinian encampment at George Washington University on Wednesday. She sported her signature red lipstick and carried a blue bullhorn.

She appeared to have come to the campus with the intention of protesting the ongoing protest that had been happening for a week. However, she was met with some clever taunts that clearly unsettled her.

In a video that has been circulating on social media, students can be heard playfully calling out “Beetlejuice” at Boebert, referencing her memorable night at the theater in Colorado last year. As she made her way through the campus, accompanied by fellow House Republicans like Reps. Byron Donalds (FL), Anna Paulina Luna (FL), and James Comer (KY), others joined in by singing a spirited rendition of John Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra’s “The Imperial March” – Darth Vader’s Theme.

During her visit, Boebert encountered difficulty in removing a Palestinian flag that was hanging over a statue of George Washington. Expressing her discontent, she remarked, “This is America, and that needs to come down.”

In a statement to The Daily Beast, she emphasized the need for Mayor [Muriel] Bowser to take a more proactive approach to ensuring safety on and around the campus. “It’s about time that Mayor Bowser takes decisive action to maintain the security of this campus and its surrounding area,” she asserted. She further criticized the protestors for their disruptive behavior, describing them as “extremely disrespectful” towards other students.
