After Boebert congratulated Florida Republican Anna Paulina Luna, she's been strangely silent and seems on the verge of losing her own district to Democrat Adam Frisch. Twitter rightly mocked her unmercifully.

Online critics of Republican Lauren Boebert seemed to revel in the nail-biter close race the congresswoman remained locked in hours after polls closed in Colorado, with many pointing to her own social media silence as a sign that a potential loss could be imminent.

The GOP firebrand’s tight race against Democratic challenger Adam Frisch remained too close to call as of Wednesday afternoon, with the defending congresswoman still trailing her rival by less than two per cent with more than 90 per cent of votes counted, The New York Times reported.

On Twitter, where the Trump-endorsed candidate is bombastic and prolific in her near hourly posts, Ms Boebert appeared to have taken an Election Day vow of silence, as her account has gone for more than half a day without an update being shared.

“The red wave has begun!” tweeted Ms Boebert on Tuesday as she congratulated fellow Republican Anna Paulina Luna, who was one of the first House races to be called by the Associated Press. “America First is winning!” she added, in a message that quickly began to grow stale as her and other MAGA-embracing Republican’s predictions of a “red wave” shaped into more of a pink dribble.

Her tweet.

Some reaction.

If it's any consolation though, she just got hit on by former major league ballplayer and all-around scumbag Lenny Dykstra.

A salient point here.

"A monster upset, obviously" said Steve Kornacki as results came in. Chris Hayes let out an audible "wow!"
