Lauren Boebert is an outspoken Donald Trump supporter.

"I think he's praying, but if he is sleeping, he certainly looks pretty while he sleeps," she said in a clip shared on X by political pundit Ron Filipkowski. "Maybe it's an endearing moment of prayer though."

She quipped that when she falls asleep, her "mouth kind of drops open," but alleged Trump's mouth had been "tight-lipped."

When she was told that it's been proven he was asleep by multiple news outlets present in court, Boebert replied, "I could see why someone would fall asleep, just like George Conway fell asleep today in the court hearing."

"You know, it's kind of slow in there," she added. "It's not as exciting as the House Oversight Committee."

Critics quickly took to the comments section to poke fun at the conservative politician. One user joked, "Right. It’s not true but if it is true, he looks good doing it," and another responded, "Of all the things that aren’t happening, TFG praying in the courtroom isn’t happening the most."

"She meant preying. Not religious prayer, but more like visualizing who’s gonna be his next prey for an upcoming grift," a third person penned. "No comment on the ‘he looks pretty while he sleeps’ part."

A fourth wrote, "I'm so embarrassed for her I never know whether to laugh or have some pity."

As OK! previously reported, Law360's Frank G. Runyeon detailed Trump's head dropping, his eyes closing and then jerking his head back up in court back in April.

CNN contributor Maggie Haberman reported that he appeared to be asleep as he "didn't pay attention to a note his lawyer passed him" and his "jaw kept falling on his chest and his mouth kept going slack."

Following the reports, Jimmy Kimmel joined in on the jokes about Trump's sleepiness.

"Can you imagine, imagine if Joe Biden fell asleep in the court on the first day of his trial? Trump would be calling him ‘Comatose Joe.’ But not old Donny Nappleseed," he teased. "It’s nice to see even Donald Trump is exhausted by Donald Trump."
