(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert has mocked the House GOP for being unable to decide on a House Speaker.
The Republicans in the House had originally selected Steve Scalise as the House Speaker nominee, but Scalise ended up withdrawing from the race on Thursday arguing that he did not have the 217 votes required to win the vote.
Boebert in a recent post on X, formerly known as Twitter argued that a mythical creature, such as Colorado’s Bigfoot, would be able to receive the 217 votes required.
Recently it was believed that the mythical creature was seen roaming across the state’s southwest corner in the San Juan National Forest. A video was also shared on X from the OutThere Colorado account in which a creature can be seen walking and crouching. Many social media users have claimed that the creature depicted in the video could either be Bigfoot or a man wearing a gorilla costume.
The Republican Representative used the buzz surrounding the recent sighting to refer to the House of Representatives which has currently spent almost two weeks without a House Speaker.
Following Boebert’s comments many users online had mixed reactions, with some users calling the Representative out and arguing that Bigfoot would most likely be able to perform between in the House than all the current Representatives.
However, there were some of those who supported Jim Jordan’s nomination who argued that he would be able to receive the 217 votes necessary. A different user also said that that even if it takes 350 attempts they just wanted to see a Republican become the House Speaker.
