Madison Cawthorn's cocaine and orgy comments

CNN reporter Melanie Zanona subsequently reported that "members said that if [Cawthorn's remarks are] true, he needs to name names because otherwise it unfairly maligns the entire institution."

McCarthy, who hails from Bakersfield, reportedly promised to address the matter with Cawthorn.

It's not the first time McCarthy has allegedly had a testy meeting with his caucus. In November, McCarthy reportedly got into a "heated exchange" with Texas Rep. Chip Roy over 13 Republicans voting for a bipartisan infrastructure bill signed into law by President Joe Biden. At that same meeting, McCarthy had to address Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar tweeting an anime video that depicted him killing New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Cawthorn's comments have received widespread media attention. Some Democrats have also seized on the remarks, with California Rep. Ted Lieu tweeting, "Based on this interview of GOP Rep Madison Cawthorn, I just have to say, wow, the @HouseGOP Caucus is much wilder than I thought."



The GOP attracts a LOT of sick f***s.

POLL: Come on DU'ers. VOTE - Permanent Daylight Savings or Permanent Standard Time??

In Calif, I personally do not need the evening to be light until almost 9pm in summer.

I'd also rather get the morning started soon after the sun comes up.

Nationwide I think the split is about 50/50.

What do we have here?

Thank you for your participation!

Covid-19 cases continue to rise in China's worst outbreak since Wuhan

Source: CNN

China reported thousands of new local Covid-19 cases Sunday amid the worst outbreak in the country since Wuhan in early 2020, according to the National Health Commission (NHC).

Health officials said 2,125 cases were reported across 58 cities in 19 of 31 mainland provinces, marking the fourth consecutive day China reported more than 1,000 daily local cases. More than 10,000 cases have been reported since the latest outbreak began in early March, the NHC said.

Saturday, the commission reported 3,122 local cases -- the highest number of daily infections since the Wuhan outbreak and the first time new cases have exceeded 3,000 in a day, NHC data showed.

Throughout the pandemic, China has adhered to a strict zero-Covid policy that aims to stamp out all outbreaks and chains of transmission using a combination of border controls, mass testing, quarantine procedures and lockdowns.

Two major Chinese cities -- northeastern industrial hub Changchun and southern economic hub Shenzhen -- are under lockdown, with more than 26 million residents forbidden from leaving their homes.

Public transport has also been suspended, as well as indoor dining, while all public venues excluding grocery stores and pharmacies have been closed, the authorities said.

Chinese officials have been under pressure to bring outbreaks under control and have been reprimanded by higher administrations for "poor performance" as cases grow.

China has dismissed at least 26 government officials this month in cities where outbreaks have occurred, including a mayor and a director of municipal health commission in Jilin province, and a vice mayor and a deputy director of the provincial police department in Guangdong.
