GOP Rep Roasted For Being ‘Happy’ To Praise COVID Relief Plan He Voted Against | Talking Points Memo

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) on Tuesday was suddenly “happy” to tout that community health centers in his district will receive grants from the Department of Health and Human Services — which were made possible through the passage of the COVID-19 relief package that he voted against earlier this month.

Madison Cawthorn is a useless and complete waste of space and oxygen. How he ever got elected to anything is a total mystery.

I know this sort of thing–appearing to take credit for something you opposed–is time-honored among politicians, but #politicalTwitter is going to make it harder to get away with. Cawthorn is young enough to have a grasp of this, so . . .

Yeah–this is just dumb.

What he’s saying is that he’s happy there are enough Democrats in Congress that can outvote him and the other members of his nihilistic party so that good things can happen for Americans.

That’ll be quite the campaign slogan for him in 2022. You like the community health centers? Then vote for the Democrat.

Homeschooled, hyper religious, arrogant. Little Maddie is the trifecta of rightwing stupidity and absence of morals, intelligence or charm.

Sigh. He’s at that awkward age where he’s too old to be hanging with Gaetz, but too young too have a lick of sense or gravitas.

It didn’t take him long to take advantage of the GOP’s “suckers for supporters” rule.

I’m going to go ahead and assume that nobody needs me to answer the question of whether these motherfuckers have no shame.

Moving on…

He is also against “special privileges” for certain groups.

I wonder if he has heard of the ADA? (No. not the dentist group)

He’s a d!ck. Full stop. I don’t know if his moran constituents keep track of his lies… or if he is using his wheelchair to cover his crap. I have close relatives who have suffered injuries and are wheelchair bound. If you are a lying jerk before a spinal injury… you remain one afterward.

You know that scene in “Kiss of Death” where Richard Widmark’s character pushes a woman in a wheelchair down the stairs and is the baddest of bad guys? His character could totally redeem himself if Cawthorn was in the chair.

These guys are LUCKY that the Democrats aren’t as punitive and vindictive and just purely malicious as those nasty Republicans.
