On the rare occasions that this house is not spotless when she gets home (whether it be a few dishes in the sink or the floor unswept) she will go completely ballistic and lose her shit on me. Yelling and screaming about how we had one simple task to do and what have you. I noticed more and more recently that her attitude is directed right at me whenever she starts yelling about us being "dirty" and "ungrateful". Well, I was up doing laundry one day and overheard my boyfriend telling her that he does most of the cleaning and that sometimes I just don't do anything around the house so he has to pick up the slack. I went downstairs and confronted him on his lies, right in front of his mother, and he made out like I was a lying scum bag. Later that night he brought it up with me and said that I had no right to make him look bad in his mothers eyes and that it is simply respectful to take the fall for it because I am not her child and I don't have a reputation to uphold with her.

Well him mother is going to love him unconditonally, so in my opinion she shouldn't be worrying about a reputation. you're the one that needs mom points.1

"simply respectful to take the fall for it because I am not her child and I don't have a reputation to uphold with her." if anything I would rather look bad to my mother than my significant other because theyre not family yet and I would want my mother to like him, and not have a reason to dislike him, especially if it was based on lies. Your boyfriend sounds like a jerk, and I would not put up with it.1
