Boebert clashes with Parkland survivor on Twitter: ‘Give your keyboard a rest, child’

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) got in a Twitter dispute with Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg, telling him to “give your keyboard a rest.”

After talk about permanently keeping fencing up around the Capitol building following the deadly Jan. 6 riot, Hogg tweeted that “They can put up all the fencing around the capitol the real threats of @mtgreenee and @laurenboebert will still be inside until @GOPLeader takes a stand.”

Boebert and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) both believe and have pushed former President Trump’s election fraud conspiracy theories. 

Boebert fired back at Hogg, telling him to “Give your keyboard a rest, child.”

“David, please. We all saw how tough you were when questioned face to face,” Boebert tweeted.

Boebert has received a lot of criticism after the Capitol riot for her tweets saying “This is 1776” and for tweeting that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was moved out of the chambers during the riot.

Boebert’s communications director quit the day after the riot occurred.

“Following the events of January 6th, I’ve decided to part ways with the office,” Ben Goldey told Axios in a statement. “I wish her and the people of Colorado’s Third District the best.”
