Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., has once again caused a frenzy on Twitter following a failed attempt to insult President Joe Biden with a reference to the Prince John cartoon character from the Disney film, “Robin Hood.”

During a Tuesday appearance on Fox News, Boebert slammed Biden for the state of the economy and made a reference that failed to resonate with viewers.

“I don’ know who’s running the federal government these days, uh Joe Biden or Prince John, uh… from …uh, Prince John, but they’re taxing us into poverty,” Boebert told Fox News anchor Jesse Watters.

Many were confused whether she was referencing the member of a royal family or the character from the Disney cartoon.

By Wednesday, “Prince John” became a trending topic on Twitter with people mocking Boebert over the odd reference.

“Going on #FoxIsNotNews and babbling about someone named Prince John. Lauren Boebert has once again proven that #LaurenBoebertIsSoDumb and that ANYONE can be elected to Congress,” one tweet read.

Another user suggested Boebert was genuinely unaware of who was in charge of running the country.

“A 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,” the post read.

On Wednesday, Boebert attempted to clarify her statement by posting side-by-side photos of Biden and Prince John from the 1973 animated Disney film, “Robin Hood.”

In the movie, Prince John was a smirking lion and the main villain. The character stole from the poor due to his greed and had the support of Sir Hiss, a snake.

This isn’t the first time Boebert faced backlash this month. Following the State of the Union, she was criticized for heckling Biden moments before he began discussing his late son Beau Biden.
