Washington DC student Noah Mitchell met Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Madison Cawthorn on Capitol Hill this week, where he had the opportunity to ask them about their vacation.
Mitchell approached Cruz for a selfie. Senator Antigay, who loves to have their picture taken, happily accepted. But unbeknownst to him, Mitchell was actually recording a video.
As Cruz smirked foolishly for the maskless camera, the political science student asked, “How was Cancun, senator?” It was good?”
Realizing that he was trolled, the smile on Cruz’s face quickly faded. “Beware,” he said before hurrying.
The video, posted yesterday, has received nearly 450,000 views and over 30,000 likes on Twitter.
About 10 minutes later, Mitchell ran into Cawthorn and again requested a selfie.
“How was the visit to Hitler’s house?” He asked the 25-year-old Nazi enthusiast, too busy smiling for the camera to hear the question. So Mitchell repeated: “Did you go to Hitler?”
“No, I haven’t been,” Cawthorn replied before patting Mitchell on the shoulder and taking off.
Mitchell then asked about the infamous photo Cawthorn took at Eagle’s Nest and posted on Instagram.
“It was, I believe, retirement,” said the young lawmaker.
Because it’s so much better.
So far, the video has received almost 600,000 views and over 20,000 likes on Twitter.
Mitchell later shared Cawthorn’s Instagram posts from Eagle’s Nest, writing, “We have receipts @CawthornforNC. “Bucket list”, really? “
