Rep. Lauren Boebert tweeted a video this morning about Cori Bush that she says she initially thought was a parody:

It’s easy to see why she thought it was a parody. It’s completely idiotic.
‘Squad’ member Cori Bush, a Democrat congresswoman from Missouri, defended her $70,000 expenditure on private security after her repeated calls to “defund the police,” which when enacted would leave thousands of her poor constituents unable to protect themselves.
The video is of Bush telling CBS that she’s had attempts on her life, so she’s going to hire security no matter how much it costs, even if she ends up spending $200k.
But then she turns right around, in the very same breath, saying we absolutely need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.
What a clown show. She’s actually saying her life is so important that she needs security no matter how expensive it is, but when it comes to the average everyday American, who relies on police to keep them safe, well screw them because we have to defund police.
Or put another way, ‘police for me but not for thee’.
