Trump Endorses Madison Cawthorn Despite ‘Foolish Mistakes’

Despite a series of public blunders North Carolina Congressman Madison Cawthorn managed to secure an endorsement from former President Trump.

The Hill reports:

“When Madison was first elected to Congress, he did a great job,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social, the social media platform that he founded last year. “Recently, he made some foolish mistakes, which I don’t believe he’ll make again…let’s give Madison a second chance!”

Trump endorsed Cawthorn for reelection last year. But his latest show of support comes as Cawthorn is facing a fight for political life following a series of controversies that have fueled GOP criticism of the first-term congressman.

Several Republicans jumped into the primary in Cawthorn’s district after he decided to run in another district closer to Charlotte following the redistricting process. He returned to his old district, however, after state courts struck down North Carolina’s new House map.

Since then, things have gotten more complicated for him. Cawthorn enraged many of his fellow Republicans earlier this year when he suggested in a podcast interview that fellow GOP lawmakers were participating in orgies and doing cocaine. He’s also suffered from a series of salacious revelations, including a leaked nude video.

However, it’s not clear if Trump’s endorsement will give Cawthorn the boost he needs to advance to the general election. Cawthorn must obtain more than 30 percent of the vote in order to be included on the general election ballot and he’s facing off against multiple high-profile North Carolina Republicans.

Madison told the voters the truth of what is going on among not only the GOP but the DEMS. He told the truth and so he is expected to step down from running for office? Or the party should forsake him for another who most likely will NOT inform the voters of what is going on? What happened to his 1st Amendment right to free speech? What happened to what should be voter concern over what is taking place with those they supposedly voted into office> Do voters NOT want to know what is going on in their government? No wonder child trafficking and other sins went by unchecked. The people are too busy with watching the lying TV media and having fun then to care about what is taking place in the government that is supposed to represent them – and maybe it does for that matter.

A case of “Be smart like a fish. Keep your mouth shut and you won’t get caught.”

I’ve seen the video. It looks like he’s humping a pillow and you can’t see if the other person is a guy or girl. In fact you really can’t see anyone at all. I grew up around boys. They do gross things alot. Mostly teenagers or college age boys do stuff like that. It’s weird that a grown man would do immature stuff like that.
