Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-S.C.) on Friday fired back after the House Republicans' campaign arm mocked him and his wife over their marriage counseling, saying the group should give respecting women "a try."

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) had the day before highlighted a post from Cunningham's wife, criticizing her for praising pro-impeachment comments.

Amanda Cunningham posted on social media this week praising former Rep. Beto O'Rourke's (D-Texas) attacks on President Trump amid an impeachment inquiry stemming from a whistleblower complaint.

Biden's LGBTQ record draws scrutiny at Iowa presidential forum

  Biden's LGBTQ record draws scrutiny at Iowa presidential forum Biden's LGBTQ record draws scrutiny at Iowa presidential forumBiden was questioned at the multi-candidate event on Friday night about his votes as a U.S. senator from Delaware on legislation that included the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that prohibited openly gay individuals from serving in the U.S. military and a law defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Joe Cunningham is one of the just a few remaining House Democrats who have not publicly supported impeaching the president.

"Beto gettin bolder and I like it," Amanda Cunningham wrote on Instagram.

The NRCC took a screenshot image of her post and tweeted it out.

"Looks like Mrs. Cunningham likes a man who supports baseless impeachment ... wonder if this will come up in @RepCunningham's marriage counseling?" they asked.

"Amanda is my rock - and the @NRCCjust hit rock bottom. I respect my wife and all women, y'all should give it a try," Cunningham wrote on Twitter along with a fundraising link.

The NRCC's post was criticized by many social media users, including John Weaver, a lead GOP strategist on former Ohio Gov. John Kasich's 2016 presidential campaign.

NRCC spokesman Chris Pack responded:

Amanda Cunningham opened up about the couple's therapy sessions earlier this month in a video talking about her dissatisfaction with the health care coverage provided to members of Congress, The Post and Courier reported.

She said her mental health sessions, as well as their marriage counseling, were denied under the taxpayer-funded plan.

Missouri man arrested on suspicion of arson in Santa Clara County wildfires

  Missouri man arrested on suspicion of arson in Santa Clara County wildfires A Missouri man was arrested this week on suspicion of starting multiple wildfires on forest land in Santa Clara County, officials said Wednesday. Law enforcement officers with Cal Fire arrested Freddie Owen Graham, 68, in San Jose on Monday afternoon after investigators identified him as a suspect in lighting multiple wild land fires in the South Bay. “Cal Fire would like to extend our thanks to the residents of the affected community for their vigilance and information which helped in the apprehension of the suspect,” Cal Fire said in a statement.Officials did not provide the circumstances of each of the fires Graham is suspected of sparking.

"It's just mind-blowing to me," she said, "that these basic, well-known needs, that mental health is health care, are still being denied. That we're still fighting for these absolutely basic things."

She continued, "So I'm reaching out to my congressman — yes, also my husband — but saying, like, hey, what can we do about this? Like, let's go to the House floor, let's write a bill, let's, I don't know what you do, but let's do it because this is ridiculous."

Cunningham's spokesperson Rebecca Drago told the local outlet that the congressman is not planning to offer legislation to change Congress's health care coverage, adding that he does not support having taxpayer-subsidized health plans cover the issues his wife touched on.

"Joe and Amanda are grateful to have great health care for themselves and their son Boone," Drago said. "They agree with the majority of South Carolinians that private insurers should offer more comprehensive coverage, including more coverage for mental health, and they understand the deep frustration that many folks have with their insurance, including unexpected and surprise billing."

Cunningham, a former ocean engineer turned lawyer, defeated GOP state Rep. Katie Arrington during the 2018 midterms and flipped South Carolina's 1st District to blue for the first time in decades.
