Washington D.C. student Noah Mitchell ambushed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) at the Capitol this week, asking if they enjoyed their most controversial vacations.
Mitchell, a political science student living in D.C., pretended to take a selfie with Cawthorn on Thursday, quickly asking him, “What was it like visiting Hitler’s house?”
“What was that?” Cawthorn asked.
“What was it -Did you go to Hitler’s house?” Mitchell asked again.
“Nope, didn’t go there,” Cawthorn said while patting Mitchell’s shoulder before quickly taking off in his wheelchair.
“Alright, what was that Instagram post then?” Mitchell fired back.
“That I believe was a retreat,” Madison said as he fled the scene.
“The retreat? Okay,” Mitchell responded.
Mitchell later posted Cawthorn’s posts from the Eagle’s Nest, writing, “We have receipts @CawthornforNC. ‘Bucket list,’ really?”

Cawthorn’s own Instagram post referred to the home as “the vacation house of the Führer,” and called his visit to “the Eagles Nest a trip that has been on my bucket list for a while, it did not disappoint.”
Mitchell also pretended to take a selfie with Cruz before asking him, “How was Cancún, Senator? It was good?”
Realizing that this was not just a fan trying to take a friendly picture, Cruz’s smile quickly melted away as he took off.
“Take care,” Cruz shot back as he walked away. “You didn’t enjoy it? No?” Mitchell replied.
I’m actually curious about whether he enjoyed it. Like was it fun for the first half? Or was it stressful cuz he knew someone would recognize him?

Right-wing pundit and former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro was ridiculed online after posting a video of himself purchasing a single plank of wood at Home Depot to push back against activists calling for a boycott over the company’s apolitical stance on Georgia’s new voting law.
On Tuesday, a coalition of Black faith leaders in the state representing over 1,000 churches, called for a boycott of Home Depot, claiming the Georgia-based company had failed to be a good corporate citizen by not opposing the state’s new voting law.
“We don’t believe this is simply a political matter,” Bishop Jackson, who led the call, said in an interview. “This is a matter that deals with securing the future of this democracy, and the greatest right in this democracy is the right to vote.”
Home Depot, Mr. Jackson said, “demonstrated an indifference, a lack of response to the call, not only from clergy, but a call from other groups to speak out in opposition to this legislation.”
Other Georgia-based corporations like Coca-Cola and Delta have strongly opposed the state’s new law, while Home Depot opted to largely stay silent on the topic.
In response to calls to boycott Home Depot, Shapiro uploaded a video to Instagram urging his followers to shop at their local Home Depot.
“As you can see, I just went shopping at Home Depot,” Shapiro says in the clip while he holds a plank of wood and a receipt outside a Home Depot location. “You should do the same. This wood, this board, this magnificent piece of poplar is now mine.”
Shapiro’s video has mainly earned him a wave of mockery online, with some congratulating him for spending $4 dollars to save the corporation.
“How is this not satire?” one commenter asked.

Coming Attraction: The life and rise of MMA fighter and pioneering trans athlete Fallon Fox is under development as a motion pictureMark Gordon Pictures, along with the creative team behind the acclaimed documentary “Man Made,” plans to tell the transgender pioneer’s story. The story of trailblazing MMA fighter and Outsports Triumph Award winner Fallon Fox may be coming to a cineplex near you. Mark Gordon Pictures announced that its firm has a biopic project on the pioneering transgender athlete under development.
According to the entertainment industry journal Deadline, Fox will serve as a consultant to the project with Mark Gordon as producer. Gordon’s previous producing credits include the popular TV shows Grey’s Anatomy and Criminal Minds and the box office hit that won five Academy Awards, Saving Private Ryan.
Fox shared the news on her social media.
Hey y’all! I feel honored to be able to tell you all that there is a movie in development by Mark Gordon Pictures chronicling my life! https://t.co/gBONqLsW1B— Fallon Fox (@FallonFox) April 21, 2021
For Fox, this is the next bold step in a sporting life where bold steps have been her calling card. Since coming out publicly in 2013, she’s taken a great deal of criticism and vitriol, but also given a great deal in terms of advocacy and education, in addition to being a fierce competitor in an MMA octagon.
“I’m really happy that this is in development,” Fox told Outsports. She added that this project takes on added importance in a time where more than 30 states are considering or have enacted legislation to ban transgender women and girls from competitive interscholastic and intercollegiate sports.
“This story needs to be told especially right now with what’s going on with all of the anti trans legislation,” Fox said. “I also think that they have an outstanding writing team including trans representation working on this. So, this should be a great film.”
The writing team Fox refers to will be the formidable husband-wife writing team of T Cooper, the director-producer of the critically acclaimed documentary Man Made who also has numerous television writing credits to his name, and journalist-author Allison Glock-Cooper.
So stoked to be writing this with @RealTCooper. LFG! @FallonFox ️⚧️ https://t.co/4Abd4Jt6dJ— Allison Glock (@AllisonGlock) April 21, 2021
“As transgender/LGBTQIA writers and creators, we know in our bones the inherent value in and necessity of telling stories from the inside out, rather than from the outside looking in,” said the couple in a joint statement to Deadline. “We’re thrilled to be teaming with Mark Gordon Pictures to help bring Fallon’s undeniably powerful and relevant story to the screen.”
Another member of the producing team, Bonnie-Chance Roberts, concurred. “Fallon Fox is a remarkable woman and athlete who has withstood and achieved so much in her life and whose story is far too little known,” Roberts told Deadline. “She is a universal, living icon of strength and persistence.”
