The QAnon-endorsing Republican tried to spin the billions-strong Brood X insects that are causing havoc across the U.S. into a political attack on fellow members of Congress, most notably House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
“The media needs to quit acting like the cicadas are the worst creatures in DC,” Boebert tweeted on Thursday. “I can list several that are worse, starting with the Speaker of the House.”

Twitter users mocked Boebert for appearing to have a lack of self-awareness, naming her and other Donald Trump acolytes who they thought should be on the list instead:

Imagine having the gall to post tweets that your coworkers are "creatures" worse than pestilential insects. What vulgar, deplorable conduct. https://t.co/EMvy7xHgjb

You are at the top of that list. Greene, gaetz, McCarthy, Hawley are honorable mentions along with McConnell

The lack of self awareness is startling.

You have a lot in common with the cicadas…… an annoying persistent buzzing that seems to never end.
