When it comes to Saturday Night Live, you can probably count Rep. Lauren Boebert out as a fan.
Boebert became the butt of the joke during a skit with SNL’s cast members Cecily Strong and Chloe Fineman, with the latter portraying the political figure.
Though the six-minute sketch that aired over the weekend was a hit amongst viewers, Boebert—who was ruthlessly mocked for her pro-gun beliefs—slammed it as being “poorly-acted” and called Fineman a “no name actor.”
Well, Fineman just hit back. Calling Boebert the “actual clown,” the comedian took to Instagram to share a carousel that featured an image from the SNL sketch and Boebert’s tweet which critiqued her performance.
“🤡🤡 (swipe for actual clown),” Fineman began her Instagram post. Adding, “p.s. loved clinkin our fake ass guns queern @cecilystrong and thanks @danbulla @kentola7 @annadrezen and errybody for a great CO! #peoplepeoplepeople.”
During the cold open sketch, Strong who played politician Marjorie Taylor Greene and Fineman posed as the two Republican Congresswomen holding their beloved semi-automatic rifles, and insisted that coronavirus was a “fake disease”.
In the comments, people applauded Fineman’s post and her SNL skit.
“😂😂😂😂 many are triggered from last night…it’s hilarious… ONE BAND ONE SOUND DAWG… YOU A KILLER CHLOE KEEP APPLYING PRESSURE 🔥,” wrote Punkie Johnson.
“somebody touched a nerve 😂,” laughed another.
Fellow cast member James Austin Johnson wrote, “I love that all these guys talk like Trump now.”
