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.
My pronoun is “Patriot”.

“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.
That’s a noun. You’re a dipshit.

"Patriot" isn't actually a pronoun.
I guess they didnt cover that in your GED classes.

"Patriot" is not a pronoun.
A Patriot would have condemned the Jan 6 insurrection, not encouraged it. pic.twitter.com/mRbKNx6IyF
