November saw the end of Donald Trump, but many Trump-styled politicians were elected. Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene have wreaked havoc on the House with their QAnon craziness.
North Carolina’s Madison Cawthorn has also been controversial. Last week, Buzzfeed published a number of sexual misconduct claims against the GOP lawmaker.
Cawthron appeared on Fox & Friends on Tuesday morning. Most people would expect him to be asked about the controversy. Instead, the GOP Rep. spent most of his time talking about Dr. Seuss being cancelled.
“Well, brother, I was going to go to the gym after this hit, but I don’t have to now,” said the congressman. “I’m already fired up, that is absurd. You know, inside our congress, we have done a lot. We’ve got a lot accomplished. We have successfully, so far, renamed a post office here in the 117th congress. So your telling me that the actual priorities of the Democrats is renaming a post office and now cancelling Dr. Seuss.”

Like Cawthorn, Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo has been accused of sexual misconduct. Unlike Cawthorn, though, Fox News has been all over the story. The same Fox and Friends broadcasters slammed CNN on Tuesday for not having Cuomo’s brother, Chris, cover the story.
Cawthron’s has talked about the allegations against him on CNN. “Looking back,” he said in regards to the claims, “I wish I could have changed my actions. If I made somebody feel uncomfortable in a situation, that is never my goal.”
