Republican politician Lauren Boebert, who attempted to make a big splash on Friday, Sept. 24, by introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, was mocked on Twitter for her ‘Imeach Biden’ campaign.
Not only did the congresswoman’s motion not find many supporters, but internet users were quick to blast her for missing a ‘p’ while spelling ‘impeach.’
“IMEACH BIDEN,” screamed an image on her website.
Lauren Boebert’s ‘Imeach Biden’ campaign backfires
In the press material released on Lauren’s website, the rep reasoned that it was time to impeach President Biden because nobody resigned since the U.S. troops withdrew from Afghanistan, leaving military equipment in the Taliban’s hands.
Stating her reasons behind introducing the impeachment article, Lauren, who was a Democrat until 2008 wrote, “There have been no resignations, no indictments, no investigations, no congressional oversight, no outcry from the mainstream media, and no apologies.”
She also stated that she was “filing articles of impeachment for giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies and colluding with the Taliban.”
Despite the serious nature of the press release, it turned into an utter joke due to the congresswoman’s gaffe of misspelling the word ‘impeach’ as ‘imeach.’
Once the mistake became apparent, Lauren’s office quickly changed the incorrect spelling, adding the missing ‘p.’ But, the damage was done by this point. Screenshots of ‘Imeach Biden’ began swirling on the internet and many users started making jokes about it.

Twitter is a brutal place, especially when a famous personality makes a gaffe. This is a lesson Republican rep Lauren has had to learn the hard way.
Here are some notable reactions.
Toby Morton creates politician’s parody website
The glaring typo in Lauren’s press release was picked up by many famous people too.
Toby Morton, a writer for the comedy series South Park, has apparently bought the website imeachbiden.com, and it redirects users to another site highlighting the politician’s beliefs in far-right conspiracy theories.
The writer has also created a fake bio of Lauren on the website which describes her as “Professional failure, Illegal stalker of Nancy Pelosi,” among other things.
