Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Matt Gaetz (R-FL) refused to stand or applaud Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky during his address to Congress on Wednesday as he conveyed gratitude to the American people for their support in the ongoing conflict with Russia.

From The Independent:

The war-time president received a standing ovation from the members of Congress after concluding his speech on the crisis in Ukraine.

The two Republican members, however, seemed unimpressed as they remained seated and kept looking down at their phones while the rest of the chamber applauded Mr Zelensky.

Prior to the speech, as the president made his way to the podium, Ms. Boebert and Mr. Gaetz were among the few lawmakers who did not applaud.

Several news outlets captured Gaetz and Boebert sitting through the many standing ovations, just looking at their phones. What losers…

The duo also reportedly blew past security checkpoints ignoring Capitol police objections.
