‘Never Trump’ Former Rep. Comstock Attacks Boebert, Greene – Says GOP Voters Should ‘Take Out The Trash’

Former Virginia Congresswoman and ‘Never Trump’ neoconservative Barbara Comstock wants GOP voters to oust America First Republicans Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene. 

CNN’s two-term representative from DC suburbs made these comments on CNN.

Comstock was responding to Boebert’s video in which she made an unwise joke about Ilhan Omar (D-MN), being a suicide bomber. Boebert later apologized.

“Take out the trash”

Comstock made the following statement about Boebert and Greene:

“When you have this kind of just unconscionable attack—and it’s not just that she [Boebert]She needs to apologize for attacking the congresswoman and to the American people. She must apologize to both the Republican Party, and many others. It goes way beyond that.”

Comstock continued, “I’d also like to point out that she has a Republican opponent, Marina Zimmerman, who in response to [Representative] Adam Kinzinger pointed out Lauren Boebert is ‘trash.’ I would agree, and Marina Zimmerman said ‘help me take out the trash’ and that’s what I think needs to be done here.”

Comstock went one step further and promoted her own political action groups that support candidates against Boebert or Greene. 

“I’m on two PACs that support Republican women who we specifically do not support Marjorie Greene or Lauren Boebert, and you know, even — those are very red districts, you’re going to end up with a Republican. It’s possible to have a Republican conservative woman and not have an unconscionable, unconstitutional congressperson. Zippo, nothing.”

Greene Says No Apology

While Lauren Boebert issued an apology for her comments, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) made it clear that she disagreed with Boebert’s apology, and that none would be forthcoming from her.

Always stick together

It seems as though Never Trumpers think there is safety in numbers, and therefore tend to pal around together and have each other’s backs.

Comstock essentially echoed a statement by fellow Never Trumper Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) by calling Boebert “trash.” 

Back in May, during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Comstock attacked President Trump directly, claiming that Republicans don’t really support him anymore:

“I understand Republicans want to get away from Donald Trump. I mean, if Donald Trump disappeared tomorrow, I don’t think you’d have many Republicans in the search party, right? There were a few prosecutors involved, but no Republicans. So they want to get away from him, but the problem is he’s not going to go away.”

Trump wasn’t having any of it, calling Comstock a ‘RINO loser’ and taking on a host of other Never Trumpers.

“RINO Former Congresswoman Barbara Comstock of Virginia, who lost her race conclusively to someone she should have easily beaten, now goes around telling Republicans how to get elected. I was able to have her around when I needed it, and she did not mind being with me in the Oval Office.

She and other RINO losers like Mitt Romney, Little Ben Sasse, Lisa Murkowski, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and Karl Rover are what’s really wrong with the Republican Party, not the great MAGA Republicans, Conservatives, and Patriots!”
