Idaho’s super homophobic Lieutenant Governor went driving around in her truck with a gun, a Bible, and an American flag to protest the state’s coronavirus lockdown measures.
Janice McGeachin is a far-right Republican who doesn’t believe in same-sex marriage and thinks her state’s response to coronavirus is a bunch of godless B.S. So she participated in a video “declaration” about it.
“We recognize that all of us by nature are free and equal and have certain inalienable rights among which are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing and protecting property, and pursuing happiness and protecting safety,” McGeachin says in the truly bizarre video.
Several other far-right Idaho state representatives appear in the video, as well, though McGeachin is the only only person to use props.
Twitter has had quite a bit to say about McGeachin’s gun-and-bible-toting cameo…
If god will protect you why do you need a gun? Honestly, how are these people elected? Is education a low priority in Idaho Falls? Science is, apparently.

If she has the Bible, why does she need the gun?

Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin is the Tea Party asshat who posed on the Idaho capitol steps with two members of a militia flashing white power symbols.

How do people like this get elected?🤔
Driving around with a gun in one hand and a Bible in the other–no hands on the wheel–is actually a perfect encapsulation of these kind of people.
Hypocrisy and zero common sense rolled into one pathetic package.

Deaths will be on your hands, you irresponsible #CoVidiot. People listen, you discount masks and the virus itself, and people will die as a result. Shame on you.
