Rep. Madison Cawthorn, a Divorced Republican, Received Criticism for Tweeting About a Nuclear Family.
The (NEXSTAR) U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), who claimed in a tweet on Sunday that “The Left wants to destroy the nuclear family in America,” is under fire for the statement. Others immediately brought up Cawthorn’s recent divorce, which occurred after only eight months of marriage.
After getting married in April, Cawthorn, 26, and Cristina Bayardelle announced their divorce in December. Despite their commitment to making it work, Cawthorn claimed that the two “realized that balance was not attainable and that we had irreconcilable differences between us.” The decision was mutual, according to the Republican lawmaker.
Traditionally, a nuclear family is thought to consist of two heterosexual parents and their children. Cawthorn and his ex-wife were likewise childless.
Omari Hardy, a former Florida House representative, claimed in a quote tweet that “my two gay parents have been together longer than he’s been alive.” Scott Huffman, a congressional candidate from North Carolina, retorted, “My nuclear family was founded in 2004 and is 18 years strong. It lasted you eight months. Shut the frack up, please.
Due to his actions and remarks during the 2020 election and the Jan. 6, 2021 uprising at the U.S. Capitol, Cawthorn is a divisive figure on the national stage. Cawthorn made allegations of illegal voting after President Joe Biden won the election, but there was no proof of widespread fraud that might have altered the result.
In addition, the lawmaker made a fiery speech prior to the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol in which he urged supporters of then-President Donald Trump to continue fighting against the certification of the election results because the Constitution had been “violated.”
Cawthorn most recently filed a lawsuit to prevent a challenge that would prevent him from running for Congress again. According to the candidate’s challenge, his acts on January 6 and afterward violate the 14th Amendment’s “disqualification clause.”
Rep. Cawthorn has consistently denied encouraging violence or uprising.
