'Really good news': Cawthorn brags about not getting arrested days after second airport weapons violation
U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn recorded a video bragging about not getting arrested or cited with a weapons violation in the airport – this time – just days after TSA agents cited him after finding a loaded 9mm gun in his carry-on bag earlier this week. It was the second time the North Carolina Republican had been cited for trying to bring a handgun onboard an airplane, which is unlawful.
“Really good news, just went through TSA, no major alarms, nothing bad happened,” Cawthorn bragged, as if he had no control over the prior incidents when he tried to bring a handgun onto an airplane. In addition to being cited for having a loaded gun in his carry-on, Cawthorn this week was accused by two nonpartisan government watchdog groups of potential illegal insider trading. One group called it a “pump-and-dump cryptocurrency scheme.”
Wearing his congressional lapel pin, Cawthorn then sent his “love” to all the law enforcement agents “especially in Charlotte,” who did not arrest him.
“Fly safe, make sure you don’t have a gun in your bag,” he said, again as if weapons magically appear in luggage.
Madison Cawthorn jokes that he finally made it through an airport checkpoint without committing a crime, then thanks law enforcement for never arresting him when he repeatedly commits crimes.pic.twitter.com/rzeaoOEVQF— Ron Filipkowski \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6 (@Ron Filipkowski \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6) 1651138937
