Lauren Boebert Jokes She Prays for Biden: 'May His Days Be Few'

A video of Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert saying she prays that President Joe Biden's days are few has gone viral on social media.

Speaking on Saturday at the Charis Christian Center Family Camp Meeting in Colorado, where she was a guest speaker, the Republican politician referred to bible verse Psalms 109:8 as she spoke about the 79-year-old Biden, much to the delight of the crowd. The video has so far been viewed over 480,000 times on Twitter.

"I do want you to know that I pray for our president," Boebert said.

"Psalm 109:8 says, 'May his days be few and another take his office,"

Loud cheers can then be heard from the crowd and Boebert takes a pause and smiles before saying "Hallelujah".

Boebert has been criticized for her comments, with some arguing that she has called for the death of the president.

"So Lauren Boebert is praying for the death of President Biden at a church camp in front of the campers," former Democratic congressional candidate Russell Foster tweeted.

"How very 'Christian'. That she gets wooed and applause for it is even viler."

In another tweet he reflected on how he believes the church has changed since he went to church camp.

"When I went to summer church camp back in the day we had guests like the band Acapella & preachers," he wrote.

"Never had any political talk cause it was a church camp. Christianity sure has changed and that's coming from a guy who was raised in the Church of Christ, a very conservative group."

"I've got something worse I pray for, Lauren Boebert. I pray that you spend the rest of your life with the shame and humiliation of being Lauren f****** Boebert," commentator Keith Olbermann tweeted as he shared the video.

Occupy Democrats columnist David Weissman also reflected on Boebert's comments in a tweet.

"Lauren Boebert, are you asking God to end President Biden's life?" he tweeted.

The argument that Boebert is calling for Biden's death is reflective of the verses that precede and follow Psalms 109:8.

"Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand," the King James version of Psalms 109:6 reads.

The verses continue: "When he shall be judged, let him be condemned : and let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

"Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places."

Newsweek has contacted Boebert and the White House for comment.
