All that MAGA talk about their love for this country has been a massive scam. With Donald Trump, it was always Trump first and America last. MAGA Republicans lately are outing themselves.

Madison Cawthorn lost his congressional primary five months ago, and since then, the North Carolina Republican has missed 86 votes, his offices are not staffed, he hasn't shown up for work, and no one can find him.

Via The Washington Post:

Since his defeat in May, Cawthorn, who through a spokesman declined to be interviewed, has voted by proxy 86 times in the House, according to congressional records, assigning his votes to fellow Trumpist firebrands such as Lauren Boebert (Colo.), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Louie Gohmert (Tex.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.). He has introduced 11 bills since his primary loss, only one of which — the repeal of the National Firearms Act — has attracted a co-sponsor (Boebert).

The lazy git's website still says that he resides with his wife in North Carolina, even though he announced the couple's decision to divorce 10 months ago.

According to the outlet, Cawthorn hasn't posted a press release since May 12, just before the primary. At the time, he introduced a bill requiring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to include abortions when calculating death rates.

"He's not anywhere to be found," said Michele Woodhouse, the 11th District's former Republican chair, who ran against Cawthorn. "I don't hear from anyone that there's any great interest in what Madison Cawthorn is doing."

"I have not had contact with him since the primary," said Sharon Brooks, chair of the Republican Party in Henderson County, N.C., where Cawthorn owns a home. "We have moved on."

The one-term Trump sycophant didn't make any friends while in office. He was equally hated by the left and the right. Cawthorn owes a lot of money to his donors, but his broke ass can't pay it back. MAGA, like the tea party, is a failed experiment. The only reason some of them think it's relevant is that they're in a fog from the Trump cult.
