She was then escorted out of the theater by ushers and gave staff the finger as she left the venue.

“Lauren Boebert is trash. What’s ‘family values’ when she lectures everyone about the threats the LGBT community poses to children while engaging in lewd sexual acts in a public theater where children might be? This is why people think the Republican Party are all hypocrites,” McCain wrote Saturday.
McCain compared Boebert’s actions to her stance on LGBTQ+ rights. Boebert, a staunch conservative who has been an outspoken opponent of LGBTQ+ rights, urged a boycott of companies participating in Pride events earlier this year and promoted claims that members of the LGBTQ+ community are “groomers” to critics. Calling this term baselessly associates this group with “groomers.” Pedophilia.
