Doug Jones Gets Sworn in by Mike Pence & Gay Son Carson Gives Side-Eye

Newly elected Democrat Doug Jones was sworn in this week to his U.S. Senate seat in Alabama. There has been much controversy and buzz around Doug Jones and his election over the overtly homophobic and sexually inappropriate Roy Moore.

But you might have also seen the stories related to his openly gay son Carson. We’ve written about him a couple of times and he has been increasing in popularity on social media networks. Just take his Instagram page, for example, where he posts adorable selfies, social gatherings and his father’s campaign win.

If you follow the cutie on social, you may have seen that his most recent photo depicts his father Doug Jones being sworn into office by none other than Vice President, and homophobic, Mike Pence.

Carson’s hashtag #nocaptionneeded is definitely appropriate here. You can just see the angst on Pence’s face as Doug Jones smiles from ear to ear awaiting his new position, proudly standing next to his son. A penny for Pence’s thoughts!

Pence has opposed all major LGBT rights initiative and pushed for banning of gay marriage as governor of Indiana. And now as Veep he has the honor of swearing in Doug Jones and his side-eye baby faced son. Congratulations again, Doug! And way to be present, Carson!

Get to Know Senator Doug Jones' Hottie Gay Son Carson

The more we learn about newly elected Doug Jones’ gay son, Carson, the more we like! Just last week, when Jones was elected to Senate representing the state of Alabama. It was a close race between Jones and homophobic and alleged sexual predator Roy Moore. But with Jones’ victory came an flood of celebration—especially from the queer community which seems may finally have an ally in their corner. Jones’ son Carson Jones, who is openly gay, has since become a topic of conversation—getting possibly more press than his dad.

Carson’s Instagram seems to be on fire lately, with comments deeming him a ZADDY and countless marriage proposals for the hopeful zoo keeper. He’s a bearded cutie who loves the outdoors who is SINGLE and has gained over 15,000 followers on Instagram in the last week alone.

Hornet talked with Carson about his father’s win, the gay dating scene, and gave us a little bit of perspective of the guy who’s making us even giddier that Doug Jones took the Senate seat.

With regard to his new following, Carson shared with Hornet:

It was honestly kind of overwhelming as the followers started to climb really quickly. But I have had so many really nice people reach out with words of encouragement and support. So many people have just simply said “Thank you” and all of that really means a lot. Moving forward, I probably will get a bit more vocal about issues. But honestly who knows what the future holds at this point.

And again, boys—I’ll mention that Carson is SINGLE and apparently ready to mingle. But he’s looking for someone who is authentic, well-rounded but who still likes to hang out and just be low key.

I’m very much single.

Just getting started dipping my toe in the dating pool which has been exciting but also terrifying. I mean, I’m looking for what I think most people are: someone handsome and charming but also someone genuine and real. Someone that is engaged with the world around them and supportive when I binge eat Chinese food at 3:00 a.m. after a night out on the town.

In 2018, Carson will be finishing graduate school in hopes of nabbing a job at a zoo. Yes—he LOVES animals and is devoting his life to them. But seems like Carson loves napping just as much—could he be looking for a napping buddy?

Finishing grad school is the top priority. I’ll be done in May and then I’ll see where that takes me. Hopefully a really amazing zoo wants to hire me on full-time and I can really get going with my career. But I also just want to take some time and travel and relax. It has been a crazy year to say the least, so if more naps could be in my future in 2018 … that would be perfect.

So by now you may be wondering where to submit your boyfriend applications. You’ll have to follow him and see, but don’t be thirsty.
