Eighteen months after cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot on the Rust set, prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against the film’s lead (as well as producer), Alec Baldwin. This has been a long and winding saga involving Alec’s continued insistence that he never fired the gun despite an investigation to the contrary. At this time, however, Baldwin is off the hook for involuntary manslaughter, due to prosecutors becoming aware of “new facts” that will receive “further investigation and forensic analysis.”
As well, charges do get dropped if prosecutors don’t have enough evidence for a solid case, so there could be technicalities involved, some of which the general public is not aware. No matter the cause, though, Lauren Boebert made sure to air her disgust over this outcome, which she suggests is proof that “[l]iberal privilege is real.”
All criminal charges against Alec Baldwin have been dropped.
Liberal privilege is real.

Quickly, those who responded to Boebert came at her from a few places. That includes Kyle Rittenhouse’s “not guilty” verdict after he did pull the trigger (and claimed self-defense) on the gun that killed Kenosha protesters in 2020. As well, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has lauded Rittenhouse as “bright, decent, sincere, dutiful, and hard-working.” So a few sarcastic replies surfaced towards Boebert.
Wow!! I didn’t know Kyle Rittenhouse was liberal. Weird. 🤔

You are kidding, right? An accidental shooting. Yet, you and the radical right praise Kyle Killinghouse for crossing state lines and killing 2 people & shooting another. Pathetic!

But charges against your convicted sexual predator husband were never dropped— because he’s dirtbag who exposed himself to teens at a bowling alley snack bar. And you, in your infinite stupidity and total lack of class, thought he was marriage material.

How many times have you, your husband, and your kid been arrested? Yet you serve in congress and they rake in the grift.

How many times have you been arrested? Pretty sure you, your husband and your son have ALL been charged with things. Can you let me know? Thank you in advance.

You haven’t been charged for this tweet 👇 so I think conservative privilege is real.https://t.co/QkPNl0HdIW

Boebert and her husband seem to be doing just fine despite their former legal troubles and more recent allegations that Jayson Boebert tried “to fight with everyone” during a neighborhood conflict.
Some also brought up the report about how Boebert’s eldest teen son, Tyler, skipped a court mandatory date related to a September 2022 car accident, which resulted in misdemeanor charges. Tyler had accepted a plea deal that reduced his charges for the accident that put a friend in the hospital. There’s been no further news about the allegedly skipped court date (for which a Boebert source claimed that she wasn’t aware of), and people are scratching their heads in light of Boebert’s comments on “liberal privilege.”

What kind of privilege made it so your son wasn't issued a warrant for arrest after missing a court date?

It was an accident!! How’s your kid’s court case he didn’t show up for?
— Big Red 🇨🇦🍾 (@bigredsibin) April 21, 2023
I’ll bet he showed up for court when required.

Says the lady whose kid got a sweetheart deal and then couldn't be bothered to show up for court and unlike most people didn't get a warrant put out for his arrest. But sure.

Meanwhile, Boebert might be concerned about her return rival, Adam Frisch, going in hard on fundraising after barely losing to her in 2022. Overall, she’s not having the best week.
Since he’s announced, my opponent has raised $1.7 million.
He’s got the Radical Left funding him & controlling his every move.
The only way we are going to stop the Left from taking this seat is if grassroots patriots, like you, stand with me!
Donate just $3.00 to the campaign…
