has little sympathy for .

The popular congressman-turned-Fox News host directed his ire at Cawthorn on his Sunday night program. Gowdy told the North Carolina lawmaker to “name names” to bolster his cocaine and sex party accusations or “admit what we suspect, which is that you made it up.”

“Give us the names. If you’re being invited to cocaine parties by colleagues, tell us who invited you,” Gowdy said. “Who used illicit drugs in front of you? Who broke the very laws they passed and expect us to follow? Which of your colleagues thinks he or she is above the law? Who is doubling as a deviant by night while talking about family values by day?”

“So stop with the nuance, name the politicians or other officials who did drugs in front of you and invited you to sex parties,” he added.

Gowdy then recounted how during his eight years in Congress, his colleagues were “nothing like what this congressman described.”

Tim Scott‘s idea of a wild time was ordering dessert,” he said. “John Ratcliffe would run an extra mile. Jim Jordan would do extra push-ups. , now he did take us to see movies and one time, he did order butter popcorn, if that counts. Joey Kennedy‘s nickname was ‘Milk’ because it was the strongest thing he drank. Jason Chaffetz didn’t need milk because he wouldn’t even drink coffee.”

Cawthorn faced widespread condemnation within the House Republican Conference last week after claiming on a podcast that members of Congress in their 60s and 70s have invited him to orgies and done cocaine in front of him.

In response, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Cawthorn “lost my trust.” Meanwhile, House Freedom Chair (R-Pa.) told Politico, “I think it is important, if you’re going to say something like that, to name names.”

Perry wouldn’t say if the conservative Freedom Caucus would boot Cawthorn if he didn’t name names or provide other evidence to back up his salacious accusations.

Despite the furor from fellow Republicans, Cawthorn’s name appeared on a list of “special guest speakers” at a rally for former President , scheduled for this Saturday in Selma, North Carolina. (RELATED: Trump Indicates Support for Embattled Congressman Madison Cawthorn)

Organizers are billing the rally as a show of support for candidates the former president has endorsed, beginning with Rep. , who’s struggled to breakthrough North Carolina’s competitive U.S. Senate primary.
