Cawthorn Trolled Without Mercy Over Moronic '1984' Tweet

North Carolina freshman Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn added to his litany of odd and disturbing acts Tuesday night when he tried to troll liberals by comparing America in 2021 to the dystopian Orwell novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

It did not go well for the far right-wing Trump acolyte who just turned 26.

"1984 is a great fiction novel to read but it seems like it is becoming the reality we are currently living under more and more each day," Cawthorn tweeted.

Many noted that all novels are fiction, others observed it sounds like he's actually never read the book, and some asked what else would one do with a book but read it.
