Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) tried to spin Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s landslide election victory, widely dismissed by experts as a sham, in her latest desperate attack on President Joe Biden.

The QAnon-endorsing Colorado Republican sarcastically noted on Thursday that Assad this week “got ‘elected’ to another term in Syria with 95.1% of the vote” to continue his family’s 50-year rule of the civil war-ravaged country.

“Just about as believable as a certain someone in the White House having a 62% approval rating,” Boebert added:

Bashar al-Assad just got “elected” to another term in Syria with 95.1% of the vote.Just about as believable as a certain someone in the White House having a 62% approval rating.

Boebert, a staunch supporter of Donald Trump and the former president’s lies that he really won the 2020 election, also questioned Biden’s approval rating with this tweet on Monday:

The only way I’ll believe Joe Biden has a 62% approval rating is if they polled the CCP.

Critics mocked the lawmaker over her latest tweet. Many reminded her of the former president’s low approval ratings during his time in office:

I think someone’s lashing out because Marjorie is getting all the attention 🤣

Trump never hit 50, even with the GOP this year. Tell us more.

Is Lauren Boebert upset that her golden idol God Emperor never had an approval rating as high as Biden's repeated numbers or is she smarting over her own 7% bottom of the barrel approval rating? 7%…😂🤣😂
