The Republican congressman known as the “Cajun John Wayne” has had a tumultuous time on Facebook since Election Day.

Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) posted a bizarre video calling President Donald Trump “an anointed blessing.”

The longtime lawman has used aggressive language to push an unfounded conspiracy theory that Trump won the 2020 election.

“None of us want to fight, man. However, I have to tell you that this election, our president won this election. Feel my spirit, I’m telling you: Our president won this election. And if any American would stand by and allow the total dissolution of our republic, then you’re not an American,” he said.

He’s also been picking fights with Facebook commenters, according to a new report by NOLA.com.

In a story examining support for Trump’s conspiracy theories, NOLA.com correspondent Bryn Stole reported. “Only one, U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins, R-Lafayette, fully endorsed the president’s accusations in a video rant posted to Facebook late Thursday and later removed in which Higgins declared that ‘this election is totally compromised’ but ‘our president is not compromised.'”

“Higgins went on to apparently challenge various commenters who’d posted critical comments below his Facebook video to come to his house and confront him in person,” Stole reported.

One commenter reported wrote, “You gonna cry, T-Clay?”

“Stop talking it. Start bringing it. My address is public data. Have your affairs in order. Higgins out,” the Republican congressman replied.

A Republican congressman from Pennsylvania has cast doubt on his own legitimacy to serve in Congress with his failed lawsuit attempting to overturn the 2020 election results.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) attempted to have the courts block certification of the 2020 election results, but his effort was rejected by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Saturday.

"The PA Supreme Court dismisses the case brought by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly that sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail voting and to throw out those mail ballots cast in this election," Philadelphia Inquirer correspondent Jonathan Lai reported Saturday. "This is the case the Commonwealth Court had earlier blocked certification in."

2020 Election

What can the left expect from a Biden-Harris administration? Pretty much nothing

On Nov. 7 of this year, the United States let out a collective roar that rippled across the nation, resonating the crowds of blue-clad people swelling the streets and the squares, and causing buildings to tremble as those inside broke out the champagne and began to dance. The celebrations lasted long into the night. For those few precious moments, it felt as though a curse had been lifted, a nightmare abated. Trumpism had ground itself to a resounding and decisive halt and it seemed that political space on the left, and on the center ground, had finally begun to open again.
