Lauren Boebert uses non-existent military rank in Twitter rant defending State of ...
Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has been mocked once more in the Twittersphere, and this time it's for ranting about Disney - only to spell the company's mascot, Mickey Mouse, incorrectly.
Recently, Disney pledged to support the repeal of the “Don’t Say Gay” bill which bans classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten up to the third grade and was signed into law last week by Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R).
In a statement, Disney said the bill "should never have been passed and should never have been written into law."
“Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts, and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that."
Of course, there were plenty of people on Twitter to highlight the fact she missed out the "e" in "Mickey" even though there is a whole song spelling it out.
While others also made the point of noting Boebert's lack of knowledge surrounding how copyright and trademarks work, and some felt Boebert herself summed up her gaffe within the last three words of her tweet.
M-I-C-K-E-Y \n\nThere\u2019s literally a song that taught millions of us how to spell it. If these losers weren\u2019t dumb we\u2019d be screwed.https://twitter.com/repboebert/status/1511081269207216140\u00a0\u2026

This is not how any of this works. \n\n-Congress doesn\u2019t legislate individual trademarks.\n\n-Once the US Patent and Trademark Office registers a trademark, it can last forever if it\u2019s renewed.\n\n-It\u2019s Mickey Mouse not Micky.\n\n-Why do Republicans want to cancel Mickey Mouse?https://twitter.com/RepBoebert/status/1511081269207216140\u00a0\u2026
The Mickey Mouse trademark doesn\u2019t expire like a copyright does. But you can\u2019t expect an idiot who can\u2019t spell Mickey to know that.https://twitter.com/repboebert/status/1511081269207216140\u00a0\u2026
