Gen Z congressman mocks GOP as ‘out of touch’
Representative-elect Maxwell Alejandro Frost (D-Florida) has yet to be sworn in to Congress, but he’s already doing one of his unofficial duties: applauding bad-faith tweets posted by the Republican Party.
This came after Frost did an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl who discussed, among other things, the challenges the former gun control advocate and part-time Uber driver faced trying to find affordable housing in Washington.
Earlier this month, he said his application for an apartment rental in the District of Columbia was rejected due to his poor credit rating.
Although Frost will earn $174,000 as a congressman, that won’t go into effect until weeks after he is sworn in.
In the ABC News interview, Frost further explained her struggles.
“It’s not cheap,” Frost admitted. “I’m dealing with it right now, getting turned down for apartments, trying to figure out where to live because I have bad credit. I’ll probably have to, like, couch surf for a little while.
Frost’s financial troubles are common to many people who have moved for a new job, but that hasn’t stopped the Republican National Committee’s “search” feed on Twitter from trying to capitalize on the new man’s lack of capital. congressman.
Frost clapped back with a mildly sarcastic tweet that explains how renting an apartment works for most working-class Americans: “I don’t get my first paycheck until February and I don’t have much money. When you move into an apartment, you pay first, the deposit, sometimes last, and the furniture.
Frost posted a follow-up tweet mocking the Republican National Committee’s “research.”
Other Twitter users were delighted to follow the RNC’s tweet.
