Did he really need to say that?
Madison Cawthorn recently won the North Carolina congressional race and became the youngest member in Congress.
The New York Times stated that Cawthorn, “defeat[ed] the former Air Force colonel Moe Davis and keeping the conservative seat in Republican hands after a race that became unexpectedly competitive when Mr. Cawthorn was accused of racism and sexual misconduct. Cawthorn, whose victory was called by The Associated Press, is the youngest Republican ever elected to Congress, and the youngest person of any party elected to it in more than 50 years. He turned 25, the minimum age to serve in the House, in August.”
However, when he won, Cawthorn posted on his Twitter: “Cry more, lib.”
Many people voiced their displeasure of his statement. Frequent Fox News guest Bryan Dean Wright posted:
You’re a good, young man. And I celebrate your victory.
But sometimes we say silly things.
This tweet is one of them.
Erase it and replace it, showing your district the man they expect you to be, and the man that your country needs you to be. https://t.co/mlohQFmmxb

Cawthorn humbly accepts his election victory. https://t.co/GDvFt9AhRq

Being the youngest member of Congress is a tremendous opportunity and immediately making no one take you seriously is the wrong direction to go in, in my opinion.

Though Cawthorn won, he should take care to understand the position he is in and fulfill his responsibilities.
