President Trump has endorsed U. S. Rep. Scott Tipton for reelection and praised the Western Slope Republican for his work protecting 2nd Amendment rights and border control.

The endorsement is not sitting well with Tipton’s primary opponent, Lauren Boebert, the owner of Shooters Grill who shot herself in the foot with this tweet back at President Trump:
(2/2) I also doubt the President knew that I’ve already been endorsed by Colorado’s Boots on the Ground Bikers for Trump because they know who will do the best job of supporting the President’s policies. #LovePresidentTrump #MAGA #KAG #DrainTheSwamp https://t.co/b03XFyjibc

We don’t doubt that Boots on the Ground Bikers for Trump is a strong supporter of the president.
But they are just that, supporters, not White House advisors to the president of the United States.
Even bikers understand they’re not the boss of President Trump, it’s too bad Boebert doesn’t.
It’s kind of like the main job of presidents and their advisors to know which members of Congress they can count on for support. That’s how they pass the president’s agenda.
But hey, if Boebert wants to doubt the president she claims to support knows how to do his job, and tell him so on Twitter, well, good luck with that.
