Lauren Boebert: My pronoun is ‘patriot’ (‘Patriot’ is not a pronoun)

In a tweet this Tuesday, Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert decided she’d take a dig at trans people by mocking their preferred pronouns.

“My pronoun is ‘Patriot,'” she wrote.

A wave of mockery opened up the comment thread beneath the tweet, slamming Boebert for apparently not realizing (or caring) that the word “patriot” is not a pronoun.

“I’m guessing you weren’t very good at Mad Libs,” replied CNN analyst Asha Rangappa.

“We need to invest more in education,” wrote another Twitter user.

It didn’t stop there.
