As Dementia Joe described veterans exposed to burn pits and developing “cancer that would put them in a flag-draped coffin,” Boebert shouted, “You put them in—13 of them!” Democrats immediately booed her from their side of the aisle.
Biden told the poorly attended SOTU crowd, “Headaches, numbness, dizziness, a cancer that would put them in a flag-draped coffin, I know.” The bold, outspoken conservative freshman lawmaker from Colorado interrupted the liar-in-chief to point out that HE was responsible for the murder of the 13 U.S. service members killed in the terror attack at the Kabul Airport as they attempted to help evacuate Americans and Afghan allies Biden left stranded in the hostile nation.
Democrats tried to accuse Boebert of shouting at Biden that he was responsible for the deaths of 13 American troops while he was talking about the death of his son, but anyone watching the video can see she yelled at him before he ever mentioned his son, Beau:

Boebert owned her comments on Twitter:
When Biden said flag draped coffins I couldn’t stay silent. I told him directly he did it. He put 13 in there.
Our heroic servicemen and women deserve so much better.

The never-shy lawmaker took the opportunity to deliver a strong message to Biden and to her Democrat colleagues. Boebert’s jacket that read, “Drill baby, drill!” won the day. As we all know, the world would never be in the mess we’re in today if America would’ve continued to follow Trump’s lead and Keep America energy independent.
