Only, his words have now been used against him, after he was ousted from his own post last night.
The 26-year-old was defeated in a party primary contest in his North Carolina district and the replies weren't exactly kind.
He’s been surrounded by controversy over recent times. He was accused of driving on a revoked licence and cited for carrying a gun into an airport.
He’s also been involved in a feud with the Republican leadership. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy painted him as a liar after Cawthorn alleged that his colleagues were doing cocaine and inviting him to orgies.
Cheney's words are coming back to bite himGetty
He had previously been the representative for North Carolina's 11th congressional district since 2021 and his defeat last night is a devastating blow to a prominent Republican who had the backing of Donald Trump.
His detractors wasted no time in bidding him a not so fond farewell, quoting his tweet about Cheney in the process.
Perfect time for Liz Cheney to retweet this and tag Cawthorn!!!https://twitter.com/repcawthorn/status/1392472893951467529\u00a0\u2026
