Trump endorses embattled Rep. Lauren Boebert calling her a ‘trusted America First


  • Former President Donald Trump on Saturday endorsed Rep. Lauren Boebert
  • The congresswoman and her family members have been involved in a series of scandal 
  • In December Boebert moved congressional districts to avoid another embarrassingly close election against Democrat Adam Frisch 

Former President Donald Trump endorsed embattled Rep. Lauren Boebert Saturday amid her son’s legal woes and the congresswoman’s messy divorce saga. 

Trump called the 37-year-old grandmother a ‘Proven Conservative’ and a ‘trusted America First Fighter,’ giving the Colorado Republican his ‘Complete and Total Endorsement.’

The 2024 Republican presidential frontrunner’s backing comes at a time when Boebert’s home and private life have overshadowed any Congressional accomplishments. 

Boebert’s 18-year-old son Tyler was released from jail Wednesday facing 22 charges, including five felonies, related to property thefts in the Rifle, Colorado area, with one victim saying she now can’t affort to pay for brain surgery

Her son’s legal problems come in the months following the congresswoman finalizing her divorce from husband Jayson, who Tyler called the cops on in January after his father allegedly shoved and grabbed him.

Days later, Boebert denied punching her ex-husband at a Colorado restaurant after he made ‘lewd advances’ toward her. 

In September, the Colorado conservative was embroiled in a days long scandal over her behavior with a date during a Denver performance of Beetlejuice the Musical. 

Boebert and her date, Aspen bar owner Quinn Gallagher, were asked to leave the theater after she vaped and took pictures during the performance. 

Leaked footage of the incident also showed her groping Gallagher. 

None of her family scandals deterred Trump from labeling her an ‘Effective Leader.’ 

In 2022, Boebert nearly lost her Republican-leaning district to Democrat Adam Frisch, beating him by only 546 votes. 

Last February, Frisch said he planned to challenge Boebert again for her seat representing Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District.

That move prompted Boebert to announce in December that she would run in 2024 for a different Colorado Congressional seat. 

She’ll try to replace retiring Republican Rep. Ken Buck in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District instead, the state’s most conservative district. 

Ten Republicans are currently vying for that seat, with the Denver Post reporting in early February that Boebert started the year with a fundraising advantage. 

Still, Boebert came in fifth place in a straw poll of voters in her new district. 

While Colorado voters will head to the polls Tuesday to make their pick for president, Congressional primaries in the state aren’t held until June 25, giving Boebert some time to gain ground. 

She applauded Trump’s endorsement in posts on X on Saturday. 

‘It’s my honor to have the endorsement of the greatest President our country has ever known – Donald J. Trump,’ the Colorado Republican said. ‘It will be such a privilege to work alongside him in 2024 to deliver results for Colorado & get the entire country back on track!’  

In another post she held up a draft of Trump’s Truth Social post, labeling it, ‘MY president.’
