Josh Hawley (r) is such a robot that he can’t even bother to find or use original attack talking points.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Nice to see that even now the media still has time for fake personal attacks. I have done 200! local tv interviews in last year. Nobody in Senate does more. KOLR has agreed to an interview precisely 4 times. Four. I am constantly available and you are constantly turning me down

Some of the responses:
Look what Donald Trump taught him.
He’s Trump’s sanctimonious plus one.
Senator @HawleyMO this is not fake, it’s not personal, it’s not an attack. It is a question. You were on premises in front of a rolling camera with a microphone on. Twice. Are you saying reporters need to agree to your interview times? Did you set the time for @TuckerCarlson?
Hawley’s skin is thinner than Trump’s.
I’m going to go with @JoyRobertson version of this story.
How many town halls have you hosted?
No one in Missouri will deny that you are so eager for a microphone and camera you will knock anyone out of the way to get one.
OTOH, we can totally believe you want no questions of substance, and would rather share the Frozen Fish Heir’s glow than deal with us plebes.
I know some constituents who would love to sit down with you in the Lou. Maybe you should come on by and get to know us.
We have questions and want answers…
He seldom shows up in Kansas City, either. Too busy advancing his career on Fox “News” to speak to the proles.
Such a weak tweet. Too big to talk to Missourians. Come to STL.
This is a terrible look, Senator. You didn’t challenge the substance of the tweet but went on a rambling semi coherent attack. Unfortunately, Tucker Carlson gets more face time with you than home state journalists. You’re the Senator from the Show Me State, so show up!
“Nobody in the Senate does more.”
FFS, you even sound like him now.
Running for higher office already.
200 local interviews????? Not in the Missouri media market. Must be somewhere else.
Yeah, I’m calling B.S.
Do you need cheese with that whine?
Just because it’s Good Friday doesn’t mean you have to claim you’re being crucified.
Where’s the tests?
She didn’t claim that you never did local interviews, but that you denied them interviews in those two moments. Your response in no way addresses her claims.
If she’s wrong, then respond to her actual claim. Otherwise, your dishonest whining is an embarrassment.
Uh, it’s not fake if it’s true, Joshy.
Why are you whining? Do your job!
Where are the tests and PPE?
You just blocked a critical bill to aid small businesses, all because it also included help for communities on the frontlines, hospitals, and nutrition benefits for those going hungry. Shameful.
Last town hall? You are the swamp bro.
You are not readily available to your constituents. You’re a freaking liar. How about a town hall?
You’re just a pathetic publicity whore.
Sit down you soulless blowhard.
