Well, you just hate to see it.
Right wing nutter/Hitler enthusiast Madison Cawthorn (R– N.C.) announced yesterday that he and his wife, Cristina, are getting divorced less than eight months after getting married.
Cawthorn announced the news in a statement and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.
He said that after he was elected to Congress in 2020, “overnight our lives changed. That change has been both hectic and difficult, it’s neither the pace nor the lifestyle we had planned for.”
“From the outset, we committed to make things work, to fight for our marriage, and seek counsel for balancing the enormity of such a transition in life,” the statement continued. “Together, we realized that balance was not attainable, and that we had irreconcilable differences between us.” Cawthorn said the decision to divorce was mutual.
Possibly, his wife took umbrage to the fact that he recently labelled women merely “earthen vessels” “sanctified by almighty God” while arguing for the reversal of Roe v. Wade on the House floor.
But we may never know.
Cawthorn has had a rather tumultuous year since taking office, likely due to his “outrageous, often fact-free statements in a never-ending quest to ‘own the libs,’” (as HuffPo put it).
In November, he reacted to Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal by urging his supporters to “be armed, be dangerous.”
That same month, Cawthorn claimed people in Washington were “trying to insert their woke politics into our culture, trying to destroy Western civilization, trying to take all of our morality away from everyone, trying to make everyone genderless, sexless, and just absolutely Godless.”
And in October, he asked young mothers of boys to “please raise them to be a monster.”
What a guy, what a guy. Great job electing him, North Carolina.
Both the Cawthorns have asked the media to respect their privacy during their separation.
