President Biden used a visit to a wind turbine manufacturing plant in Pueblo, Colorado to attack Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, calling her “one of the leaders of (the) extreme MAGA movement.”

He even made a near blasphemous use of the sign of the cross to tear into the Representative. As Biden mentioned her name during a tour of the CS Wind plant, he paused, then made the sign of the cross and a smile broke across his face as some in the crowd laughed. Biden launched into his attack on Boebert, saying she voted against his infrastructure law that helped fund the manufacture of wind turbines such as those made at the Pueblo plant.

“(Boebert), along with every single Republican colleague, voted against the infrastructure law that made these investments in jobs possible and that’s not hyperbole, that’s a fact,” he said.

“She called (the infrastructure) law a massive failure,” continued the president who turned to workers at the CS Wind plant and asked,   “you all know you’re part of a massive failure?”

“Tell that to the 850 Coloradans that are getting new jobs in Pueblo and CS Wind thanks to this law,” he said. “Tell that to the local economy that’s going to benefit from these investments.”
