Boebert tells Republican dinner guests theyre part of second coming of Jesus

Republican Colorado representative Lauren Boebert has told a group of party members that they "get to be part of ushering in the second coming of Jesus", prompting shock and mockery online.

At a dinner hosted by Knox county Republican party in Tennessee on Wednesday, Boebert addressed the guests by saying, "I want to start with two words: 'Let's go Brandon'" referring to a vulgar anti-Joe Biden slogan before adding, "In all seriousness, there is a calling on each and every one of you to be involved and to rise up.

"It is an honor to serve in this time. I believe that many of us in this room believe that we are in the last of the last days and that's not a time to complain, that's not a time to grumble, to be dismayed, to be disheartened, but a time to rejoice," Boebert said.

"You get to be a part of ushering in the second coming of Jesus," the congresswoman said to applause across the room.

Boebert's remarks of the Christian belief that Jesus will return again after his ascension to heaven 2,000 years ago has triggered a slew of reactions online.

The Lincoln Project, a Republican political action committee aimed at defeating Trumpism, tweeted: "Christian or not, Lauren Boebert cannot adequately represent any constituent who does not believe in this end times prophecy. Can you really have someone making decisions on your behalf that thinks nothing they do now will matter?"

One user wrote, "If the end of times are coming why is she bothering with an election?"
