House Republican Lauren Boebert is a lot of things, and none of them are good. She’s disturbingly gun-addicted. She helped incite the U.S. Capitol invasion and then repeatedly tweeted out the Speaker’s location while it was going on. Now it turns out she just plain doesn’t know how anything works.

Boebert posted this tweet: “I got my start working at McDonalds. That job doesn’t exist if the minimum wage is raised to $15 per hour. Small business would be crushed by this arbitrary mandate & big business would simply automate away jobs. Not everything that SOUNDS good is actually good in practice.”


Wait a minute here. She thinks that McDonald’s is a small business? Does she think that the McDonald’s she worked at is just some local restaurant, and not a multibillion dollar chain? Does she really think that McDonald’s would go under if the minimum wage were raised? Either she has no brain, or she’s adept at pretending she has no brain. Either way, she’s 100% unfit to be in Congress. We doubt she was fit to work at McDonald’s either.
