The Colorado representative was speaking on Jesse Watters Primetime when she compared the president to “Prince John” – and no-one really knew what she was talking about.
The conversation turned to gas prices on the programme, with Boebert and Watters discussing how the leaders of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have reportedly ruled out speaking with Biden about exporting more oil.
“I’m just worried if we are going to call on Alaska to start producing this, is Biden going to want to sell it to the Saudis or Venezuela, and think that’s the only way that he will be able to buy oil and gas from Alaska?” she joked.

Then, in a failed attempt to slam Biden, she said: “And I don’t know who is running the federal government these days, Joe Biden or Prince John from, uhh — Prince John… But they are taxing us into poverty.”
The whole thing was very strange, and people online quickly pointed out that they had no idea who Prince John was, or what point Boebert was trying to make.
Some believed she may have been comparing him to the prince regent who came to the throne in 1199, who was the inspiration behind the character in the story of Robin Hood.
Whatever she was attempting to refer to, viewers all seemed pretty confused.
You know I once called Lauren Boebert an idiot and it\u2019s become a meme. \n\nI was right.https://twitter.com/acyn/status/1501352819743285250\u00a0\u2026
Lauren Boebert said "I don't know who is running the federal government these days, Joe Biden or Prince John."\n\nA lot of people are mocking her since there is no Prince John, but I believe that Lauren Boebert is being honest that she does not know who runs the federal government.
