Firearm-toting freshman Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado continues to assail the Biden administration as well as President Biden himself while making leftist Democrats crazy with angst in the process.
Boebert took to Twitter to troll the president during one of his increasingly common moments of non-clarity.
“It’s almost the end of 2021 and I’ve yet to see Biden mobilize truinternatialdepressure like he promised. What’s the hold up?” Boebert tweeted.
Not long afterward, she sent another tweet clarifying what she meant — including a video clip of Biden on the campaign trail in 2020 in which he engaged in a bit of word salad with “truinternatialdepressure.”
“I see many of the uninformed basement dwellers missed this moment of Biden’s campaign. Not surprising, sadly,” she added.

Biden has been increasingly scrutinized for what seems to be an increasing inability to clearly enunciate words or keep track of thoughts.
In addition, the administration has build a faux Oval Office set across the street from the actual White House, which, as the New York Post noted in late October, drew widespread mocking and questions on social media:
President Biden is being widely mocked on social media for running a “Truman Show presidency” after he was pictured speaking from a fake White House set that features a digital view of the Rose Garden in full bloom from a fake window behind him.
Twitter erupted after Biden was spotted sitting in front of the digital projection window on Wednesday as he held a meeting with business leaders and CEOs on the need to raise the debt ceiling.
Some ridiculed Biden for using a “literal game show set” as president, while others accused him of deliberately trying to deceive Americans into thinking he was in the White House.
“Why does Joe Biden feel the need to use a Fake White House set across the street from the actual White House?” conservative commentator Benny Johnson tweeted.
Fellow commentator Jack Posobiec wrote, “Truman Show Presidency,” adding that “they gave Joe Biden a playschool desk and a fake Oval Office in a fake White House.”
Stephen Miller, a former senior adviser of President Donald Trump, said that the real reason why the set was built was so Biden could read scripts from a teleprompter rather than have to speak on the fly.
“The reason Biden uses this bizarre virtual set for televised meetings — and not an actual room like East Room, Cabinet, Oval, Roosevelt, Sit Room, etc. — is because it allows him to read a script directly from a face-on monitor (& w/out teleprompter glass that can be seen on camera),” he tweeted.

“Why did the White House build a literal game show set complete with fake windows for Joe Biden??? So weird,” Abigail Marone, press secretary for Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), tweeted.

Former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, now a Republican representative from Texas, has regularly criticized Biden’s mental status, going so far as to publicly call on him to take a cognitive test like he administered to then-President Donald Trump.
“I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on,” he said in a July interview on Fox News.
“You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening,” he said. “He’s just not aging gracefully at this point.”
“I’m just asking them, when you do the physical exam include the cognitive assessment,” the representative said.. “As far as I’m concerned the standard precedent has been set and they need to follow and do the same.”
