A staunch Trump supporter, Charlie Kirk is trending on Twitter yet again for making a seemingly 'racist remark'. Lauren Boebert, a gun gun-rights activist, who is serving as the US Representative for Colorado's 3rd congressional district since 2021 also became a target of trolling for quoting Kirk's tweet. Kirk's idea of what kind of people are 'racist' became a matter of joke on social media.

Quoting  Kirk's now-deleted tweet, Boebert tweeted, "If you care about skin color, you are a racist." - Charlie Kirk." As people started slamming Kirk and Boebert over their idea of racism, Kirk posted the same tweet again. His tweet read, "If you care about skin color, you ARE a racist." Boebert noticed Kirk trending on Twitter and doubled down on her take tweeting: "@charliekirk11 is trending because he is right and the blue checks hate it."

Why Boebert made that post is unclear, but a look at her Twitter timeline suggests it could be a continuation of her tweet where she slammed Democrats saying: "iHeart Media should know that not hiring white men on account of their gender or whiteness is both sexist and racist… and probably illegal.
