Lauren Boebert Faces Major Backlash After Tweeting ‘Taliban Are the Only People Building Back Better’

From Mediaite:

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) was met with immediate backlash after tweeting Monday that “the Taliban are the only people building back better.”

Taliban forces took control of several major cities in Afghanistan, including Kabul, over the weekend after the withdrawal of the U.S. military. The quick fall of the government in Afghanistan has alarmed translators who assisted the U.S., female politicians, and others who have been scrambling to get out of the country for fear of their safety.

Boebert was one of 16 no votes in the House on expanding visas for Afghanistan interpreters.
