"Boebert (R., Colo.) and her date groped each other in a packed theater in Denver last week, while the congresswoman ripped a vape. Video footage shows Boebert at the musical Beetlejuice grabbing her date’s crotch as he gropes her breasts. They were surrounded by other audience members, including a pregnant woman who at one point during the show asked Boebert to stop vaping. Boebert refused and was kicked out of the theater.
Republicans accepted and defended Donald Trump’s decades-long record of vulgar and immoral behavior. Trump is now well insulated from being reproached. (Not even cheating on his postpartum wife with a porn star made a dent among his supporters.) It looks like Republicans will take the same lukewarm stance on sexual morality when it comes to Boebert." - National Review
Double standard Ramaswamy
Vivek Ramaswamy frequently highlights the immigration and naturalization journey of his family to support two divisive policy proposals: stripping citizenship from and deporting people born in the country of undocumented immigrants and denying 18- to 24-year-olds the right to vote unless they pass a civics test. - MSN
Vivek Ramaswamy told NBC his father did NOT take the U.S. citizenship test – while reiterating his belief that all immigrants should have to take the test to become legal citizens. - Twitter
