Appearing on CNN, Hutchinson implied that Boebert is “increasing the divide in our country.”

“I do. I think whenever, even in our own caucus, our own members, if they go the wrong direction, I mean, it has to be called out. It has to be dealt with, particularly whenever it is breaching the civility, whenever it is crossing the line in terms of violence or increasing the divide in our country,” Hutchinson told host Dana Bash on CNN’s State of the Union.

“So, one of the things that’s really important to us in the future is increasing the civil debate and civil discourse. And we have got to look for ways that we can bring people together, and not divide, and certainly along racial lines,” Hutchinson added.

Boebert was filmed joking at an event about running into Rep. Omar on an elevator and saying, “I look to my left, and there she is. Ilhan Omar. I said, “Well she doesn’t have a backpack, we should be fine.” She has since apologized, but that does not seem to matter to anyone.
