Mediaite said it did not use the intern's full name to spare him eternal Google infamy. But it says he had worked for Cotton since January and is well-known in Republican circles.
GOP Senator Tom Cotton’s intern is not shy about spouting off incendiary comments, as the young Republican calls Speaker Paul Ryan “a cuck” and the British “faggots.”
In a recorded conversation with this reporter, Hill intern “Nate” blasted Ryan for not having a hardline immigration stance, saying “Paul Ryan is a cuck, he’s a cuck, get him out” and “Paul Ryan: cuck first and Yankee second.”
He continued his conversation with this reporter by saying “Americans are the superior race to everyone in the world . . . we’re superior people” — his evidence for such an assertion came from America’s wartime record. Nate then brought up the Revolutionary War during this rant and called the British “faggots” and American defector Benedict Arnold “a homoesexual.”The intern went on to call himself a "bigot" toward Muslims and said that the idea of universal health care was "garbage." He added, "...we believe in social Darwinism, the idiots will get fucked." He also seems to harbor deep animus toward gay people.
Additionally — though Nate has been interning in Cotton’s office for six months — he has quite a history of controversial social media posts, as he repeatedly said “fag” and “faggot” and used “gay” as a derogatory term on his public Twitter page before being hired. These Twitter rants also include the use of the slur “tranny.”
Nate has made a name for himself for his controversial and homophobic rhetoric in the halls of Congress, as this reporter heard about him from multiple Hill staffers.
