File it under “Things We Didn’t Forsee”.
In an MSNBC interview, MAGA Rep. Lauren Boebert spoke with host Stephanie Ruhle about Kevin McCarthy’s failure to become Speaker of the House, and wondered why she couldn’t simply be more like Marjorie Taylor Greene and “take the win.”
You read that right. Suddenly, MSNBC wants Republicans to be more of one of their favorite targets? convenient!
“Most Republicans support him,” Rule said of McCarthy. “I mean, half of the Freedom Caucus is. He didn’t come out of nowhere.”
“Why don’t you go the way of Marjorie Taylor Greene, who shares a lot of ideology with you, wins, gets pragmatic, gets himself on a bunch of committees, and actually does something for policymaking?” she go on.
Boebert did not comment on her colleagues in Georgia, but insisted that the ranks against McCarthy “are definitely doing something to make policy.”
Stephanie Ruhle Wishes Boebert Was More Like Marjorie Taylor Greene
It’s odd to hear Stephanie Ruhle suggest that Boebert needs to be more like Marjorie Taylor Greene, especially on a network that sets their hair on fire almost every night because of her presence.

This is how she is described as “white nationalist whisperer“
Recently she has been Tagged by MSNBC As a “right-wing congresswoman”, her remarks often arouse “political violence”.
Now, she’s clearly the voice of rationality battling the brink of madness not wanting to see McCarthy become Speaker of the House.
It’s a big club, guys.
Perhaps more striking was Stephanie Ruhle’s use of the word “winning” in her criticism of Boebert.
Mainly because former President Donald Trump basically made the same comment when he endorsed McCarthy.
“It’s time for all of our great Republican House members to vote for Kevin, get the deal done, win,” Trump said. “Don’t turn a great victory into a huge … embarrassing defeat.”
In another post on Truth Social, Trump simply wrote: “Take the victory and run!”
MSNBC would suggest Boebert should be more like MTG and trump card?
MTG is no longer irrelevant
Not so long ago, Stephanie Ruhle didn’t quite understand the appeal of Marjorie Taylor Greene, thinking she didn’t matter.
“She doesn’t have a committee mandate. You see her on TV every day. I haven’t talked about her on this show until now because she has absolutely no policy clout,” Rueller says.
“So what are people rooting for? She doesn’t have anything to improve their lives.”
Now, is she everything a Republican should aspire to be?
Elsewhere in Boebert’s interview, Ruhle fired the founding fathers because they were “not around anymore.”
Bobert said that the process of electing the speaker was not as chaotic as the media described, but went exactly as expected.
“It may look messy, it may look messy, but it’s us at work and actually using our votes. I believe our Founding Fathers wanted it to be that way,” Boebert said.
“Well, our Founding Fathers aren’t here,” retorted a grumpy Ruhle. “So let’s be real, let’s be practical.”
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle calls our economy ‘complicated’ and ‘not bad’ in interview @laurenboebert And then went on to highlight that Joe Biden lowered the gas prices he helped soar.

Boebert also got some nice touches in the interview.
When Ruhle tried to repeat White House talking points about inflation and gas prices, the Colorado congressman quipped: “Yeah, Joe Biden’s economy sucks for the American people. You’re right.”
Ruhle would counter that the economy isn’t bad, it’s just “complicated,” to which Boebert would counter, “It’s doing very well under President Trump.”
