GOP Rep Lauren Boebert tells Hillary Clinton 'only good thing about Biden's first 100 days is that she wasn't in charge'

GOP Rep Lauren Boebert left a stinging message for Hillary Clinton saying the "only good thing" about Joe Biden's first 100 days in office is that she wasn't at the helm of the government.

The Colorado rep hit out at the former US president hopeful after she took to Twitter to praise Biden's leadership so far.

Clinton wrote: "100 days. 220 million shots in arms. 160 million relief checks. Just getting started. Thanks, @JoeBiden."

But a less-than-impressed Boebert snapped back at Clinton's remark, responding: "The only good thing I have to say about the past 100 days is that you were not serving in the federal government."

Following the president's address on Wednesday to a joint session of Congress on the eve of his 100th day in the White House, Boebert has posted a series of scathing tweets.

"Biden would have been better off reading Kamala’s children’s book to Congress," the 34-year-old wrote in one.

In another tweet, the guns rights activist said: "I’ve got to give credit where credit is due.

"Staying up for two whole hours after Jeopardy & Wheel of Fortune got off the air must NOT have been easy for Joe."

During his first speech to Congress since his election, Biden made a number of errors -but the most jarring was flubbing over the word "escalation" in regards to Russia.

"With regard to Russia, I made very clear to Putin that we're not going to seek escalation, excuse me" Biden said while taking a while to get over the last word.

Biden has a stutter that he is very vocal about, hoping kids and those who have stutters can overcome their fears of public speaking.

Meanwhile, he caused a ring-wing backlash across social media when during the address he called the January 6 riots at the Capitol the "worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War".

Some Twitter users were quick to point out other historical events that, they felt, were much more severe attacks on U.S. democracy.

The examples included the September 11 terrorist attacks, presidential assassinations, the attack on Pearl Harbor and the Oklahoma City bombing.

The president also had a dig at Donald Trump, saying he took on a "nation in crisis" as he unveiled his tax-and-spend splurge during the speech.

In swipe at his predecessor he told lawmakers: "We have stared into the abyss of insurrection and autocracy."

Biden said he inherited a "nation in crisis" as he pitched his $2 trillion "America Jobs Plan," which he described as the largest infrastructure program since World War II.

"One hundred days since I took the oath of office—lifted my hand off our family Bible—and inherited a nation in crisis," he said.

"The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.

"One hundred days ago, America's house was on fire. We had to act."

Biden's speech was an address to a joint session of Congress, talking through not only his first 100 days in office, but outlining his economic plans for the future.

These plans, Biden said, would focus on have two main focal points: infrastructure and families.
