Madison Cawthorn has prompted ridicule and scorn (again!) with his latest uttering. Taking to Twitter, the North Carolina GOP Rep. took aim at some Olympic athletes, saying, “If you went to the Olympics to represent America and decided to represent another nation once you arrived there, your citizenship should be revoked.”
If you went to the Olympics to represent America and decided to represent another nation once you arrived there, your citizenship should be revoked.

It’s unclear who Cawthorn may be referring to here. Freeskier Eileen Gu, 18, was raised in the US by her Chinese mother and an American father. She switched to representing China in 2019, aged 15, and has become a huge star in that country. She won gold this week at the Winter Olympics and is in the running for further medals.
Then there’s out, gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy, who competed for the US in the 2014 and 2018 games and is now representing Great Britain (he has dual citizenship due to having an English mom and being born in England).

However, like Gu, Kenworthy announced back in 2019 that he was switching teams. There are no obvious examples of athletes jetting off to the Olympics for one team and then deciding to switch sides upon arrival, as suggested by Cawthorn’s tweet.
Cawthorn’s statement prompted derision online.
This literally makes so sense

I assume you’re referring to dual citizens, who choose which team to represent many, many months before getting on the plane.
I’d ask you what you mean, but you never seem to have a clue what you’re talking about.

I have read this tweet over and over. It still makes no sense. So like you make team USA and last minute say nah I’m gonna compete for Japan? Can you cite an example of this messy tweet? Thank you.

What if you go to Congress to represent America but then help incite an attack on the Capitol? pic.twitter.com/z6BvbtkS80

If you went to Congress to conduct the electoral count and decided to represent the losing candidate once you arrived there, your seat in the House should be revoked.

Besides ridicule online, Cawthorn is having a bad week for other reasons. On Monday, the North Carolina Elections Board said in a court filing that it had the power to bar Cawthorn from running again if he was found to have encouraged the insurrection in the Capitol on January 6 last year.
The move comes after a group of voters in North Carolina launched a legal bid last month to disqualify Cawthorn from running. The group cites Cawthorn’s involvement in the 6 January attack. Cawthorn participated in the ‘Save America Rally’ in DC earlier that day, telling the crowd the election had been stolen. Cawthorn also tweeted, “The future of this republic hinges on the actions of a solitary few … It’s time to fight.”
The group of 11 voters point to a line from the 14th amendment to the constitution that states no one can serve in Congress “who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress … to support the constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same”.
Last week, Cawthorn filed a lawsuit to halt the challenge. He said, “Running for office is not only a great privilege, it is a right protected under the Constitution. I love this country and have never engaged in, or would ever engage in, an insurrection against the United States.”
The statement from the North Carolina Elections Board was in response to Cawthorn’s efforts to throw out the legal challenge. The board said the state of North Carolina does indeed have the “authority to police which candidates should or should not be disqualified per Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
The NC State Board of Elections declared in a motion that it has the “authority to police which candidates should or should not be disqualified per Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
The board says it can disqualify Madison Cawthorn if he “engaged in insurrection.”

Although the announcement by the NC Elections Board is significant, expect weeks of wrangling over whether Cawthorn “engaged” in insurrection or not.
Yeah. He’s stupid and should not be in Congress. We get it. Never mention him again.
I’d love to brighten Madison’s nights. I’d suck and swallow until dawn. 🙂
@James Hart — No, you wouldn’t, and it’s obvious from your comments. You’re just a brat coming on here to make trouble and think you’re being funny when you’re only revealing yourself to be pathetic. Grow up. Act like a man instead of a juvenile’s idea of what a comedian is.
James Hart : Since he’s numb from the waist down, that means he can’t get it up, or give you anything to swallow, and he wouldn’t even be able to feel you. Is sucking on dead worms what turns you on? Evidently, it does, but you do you.
I like it when you get rough with your speech.
Mr. Sullivan, may I suck you? 😛
@James Hart. Yuck…Nazi sympathizer, thats why.
@James Hart Are you really that cretinous?
Ah.. our weekly dose of NC Word Salad. Right on time.
Cawthorn is scary. What’s even scarier, though, is that he was actually elected by people who liked what they saw and heard from him. With voters like that, American democracy is doomed.
A lot of people vote for the more attractive candidate when that’s a choice. It’s too bad Corbin Fisher didn’t get to him first. He’s got the look they like and as a bonus you’d never hear him talk.
An uneducated Nazi enthusiast who said visiting Hitler’s vacation home and other areas was on his “Bucket list”, who lied about being accepted into the military academy, lied about the accident he had and has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple classmates before dropping out of school……puts out dumb tweets??? I’m shocked!
Cawthorn is a dangerous representation of the Republican war on education and the Nazification of the party.
USA politicians are just stupid in general, very few has an IQ that exceeds their shoe size
Meanwhile the rightwingers continue their race to the bottom. Who is the clown who will surpass Cawthorn in stupidity this week? Lots of candidates, we havent heard yet from MTG, Gosar or Gaetz today. And never count out the Mango Mussolini and his larvae.
The stupidest politician – and the most demented – is sitting in the Oval Office: Joe Biden.
@James Hart: And yet you voted for him over Trump, or so you say.
Buyer’s remorse. If I had to vote again today, I’d vote for the Libertarian candidate instead.
@James Hart, impotent faux RUSSKYTROLLETTE: BEEyotch, AYN RAND died sucking on the TEAT of every SOCIALIST government feature she could GLOM ONTO. You’re the same.
It is not the least bit surprising that JHart is sexually attracted to the Nazi lover.
I’m not an admirer of his political views, but I do find him very sexy and doable.
@James Hart oh, sweetiepie. Stop the lies. You fool NO ONE.
Cawthorn proves over and over again that he’s dumber than the wheelchair he tools around in, and that’s saying something!
And I thought that libs were defenders of the disabled. Guess not.
I wish someone would steal his wheels and leave him stranded
@ miserable excuse for a RUSSKYTROLL James Hart: BEEYOTCH PUHLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sutch a troll, it’ll be fun when the sex tape of him getting pounded by a daddy comes out in a few years. Family values and everything.
I don’t think any daddy would go anywhere near that pathetic piece of shit
I’m genuinely curious why he merits an entry on this site. I don’t expect him to be an ally of anyone that DOESN’T look like him, so he’s definitely not a friend to us. Does someone on staff find him attractive? I admit, he is attractive if you can ignore his white supremacist vibe, lack of any usable intelligence and overall disgusting demeanor.
By the comments I’ve read it seems that he missed his calling. I guess he could do something else with his life. Is he smart enough to remember lines? Well, he really doesn’t need to talk
I thought he was only numb from the waist down. Seems it is spreading
If he IS numb from the waist down, then that means that nothing down there works, so I guess that means that @James Hart likes sucking on dead worms. If that floats his boat, I guess that’s what does it for him. You can’t argue with taste, but just because someone likes something doesn’t mean that everyone has to like it.
We are not disparaging him because he is disabled, but because he is an idiot.
He is one of the strangest people on the planet, and I’m quite strange. He makes my third nipple hurt.
My god, he is a stupid man. It’s not as if you can just fly to China and then decide to compete. There are multiple rounds of qualifiers many months in advance! The teams get filled out early. Even children know this stuff!
So here he is making things up out of thin air… and then recommending that people’s citizenship be revoked! Quite an extreme response to something that isn’t even real!
He’s an imbecile with a public, national platform. This is today’s GOP, though, and its future!
James Hart – dude you can have all the nazi spunk you want you shallow troll. BUt hey you do you. We may say snarky things like the guy did about his wheelchair but if not for DEMS that crippled pos would not have had the special help he needed to succeed once he lost his ability to walk because the GOP hates the disabled . AND we can prove that just by looking at the last administrations sweet little Betsy DeVos who denied funding for handicapped children in public schools. F88K this broken grocery cart driving nazi monster. If there was no other man left on this planet ID f**k a woman than give him the satisfaction of sucking his dick. SOme of us draw a line at pleasuring people who would kill us but again you go ahead you worm
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed by Democrats and Republicans and signed into law by a Republican POTUS: George H.W. Bush.
@James Hart And you really think cosmetic window-dressing means ANYTHING?
Madison looks like he has an IQ of about 6.
Try as I might, I can’t forget Queerty’s fawning over this fascist when he gained political prominence.
Whatever happened to the rule that children should be seen and not heard?
