The gun-toting Rep’s tweet had mixed reactions from people – with many Republicans laughing at her tweet, and others slamming it.
“Idgaf. This is funny s**t,” one person said, quoting Boebert’s tweet.
Another person sharing her tweet said: “LOL. True that.”
“Good one Lauren!” another person wrote.
“Way to make fun of an elderly man falling. Your level of class never fails to amaze me,” one critic tweeted.
Another person wrote: “Do you do anything other than make fun of others and promote hate?”
“The only thing more pathetic than this tweet is the fact that her supporters think it’s actually clever,” one person who shared her tweet wrote.

Initially after Biden’s fall, the White House attributed his stumble on the stairs to the wind.
At a press conference on Monday, however, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said it was a result of “tricky stairs.”
“I don’t know if you’ve been up those steps, they’re a little tricky sometimes,” Psaki told a reporter when asked about Biden’s welfare.
She did not answer questions if Biden had been treated by a doctor following the trip.
Also on Monday, former White House doctor Ronny Jackson raised a “major red flag” about Biden’s health, as he said “something is not right” following his fall.
He tweeted: “I served as White House physician under THREE Presidents.
“I’ve seen what it takes physically AND mentally to do the job.
“I can tell you right now that the way Biden is hiding from the public is a MAJOR red flag. Something’s not right!”
