Lauren Boebert expanded the space blanket during President Biden’s speech to Congress on Wednesday.
Republicans were filmed with a blanket on their lap while using their cell phone.

She unpacked what looked like a space blanket in almost half of her address and placed the Mylar seat on her lap. The evening photo shows Bobert using the phone while covered in a blanket, and her Twitter account shows that she tweeted more than 25 times at Biden’s address.
Matt Fuller, the Daily Beast’s political reporter inside the Chamber of Commerce Tweet Bobert “opened the blanket out loud,” so he “shook it freely so that everyone could hear it in the room” before hanging it on his lap.
The actions of freshmen during the speech frowned on many occasions-from Live Tweet Vitriol in Biden from inside the house chamber to refuse to stand up during the standing ovation of First Lady Jill Biden.

“My reaction to the speech can be summarized in four words: I miss President Trump,” Bobert said.
