U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) admitted she “messed up” when she allowed her date to grope her during a family-friendly performance of “Beetlejuice” the musical.
Joining Fox News host Jesse Watters on Friday’s episode of “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Boebert was asked point-blank, “So what happened that night?”

“Hey, Jesse, well I mean first of all, what happened was I messed up,” she replied. “I went on a date night and I am a congresswoman and a public figure, but believe it or not, I’m human too. Obviously, everyone is very interested in my personal life and me going through a very difficult divorce.”
“As a mother of four boys and a grandmother to a beautiful grandson, that’s my first job before anything else and my priority,” she continued. “It’s certainly been taxing on me and my family to have this experience broadcast before the whole world — something that was in the dark — is certainly heartbreaking to watch, to see.”
As previously reported, Boebert, 36, was booted from Denver’s Buell Theatre earlier this month for vaping.
Video of the Republican lawmaker and her Democrat date, bar owner Quinn Gallagher, soon surfaced, showing Gallagher groping Boebert in the crowded theater.

“I have apologized to my constituents, will continue to do so,” Boebert told Watters. “All of those in Colorado who may have felt let down, I hear you and all I can do is promise to do better. And I certainly will.”
But Watters wasn’t going to let the controversial Congresswoman off that easily.
“What happened?” he asked. “You just had a little too much to drink?”
“No, Jesse. Not at all,” she replied. “I was very excited about the actual musical. Huge fan of ‘Beetlejuice.’ Anyone should go and see the musical if it’s in your area. And please let me know how it ends because I’ve yet to see the ending.”
“So, you were so enthralled by ‘Beetlejuice,’ you got carried away?” Watters pressed.
“A little bit,” she confessed. “You know, Jesse, it’s been 20 years since I was in the dating scene. And back then, there were not infrared cameras watching my every move.”
“But it’s a lesson learned,” she stated. “As I said, I’m truly humbled and apologize to my people and Colorado’s third district, those who I love.”
On X, many want to “move on” from the scandal.
I think she took accountability.
Let’s move on, shall we?

We all are sinners. If He can forgive her, why can’t we? I do believe she has learned her lesson. ✌️

“Nobody, who has ever been in love, or who has a new sense of wonder towards someone new, has a right to judge her,” one user reasoned. “The difference with my generation, and hers, is that our embarrassing moments weren’t vomited out on the internet by the press.”
