Today, from Josh Hawley (r), in yet anther attempt to set up his next rung on the ladder for 2024:

Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Before I vote for any future Supreme Court nominee I want to see record evidence that they acknowledge Roe v Wade was wrongly decided as a matter of law
3:49 PM · Jul 26, 2020

Some of the responses:

When you have a uterus, I will give your opinion careful consideration.

Stop trying to control women!! My body is none of your business!

That should not be how we pick judges. Any judge willing to so brazenly prejudice themself in front of the Senate doesnt deserve a seat on the bench even if I agree with their opinion.

so you want to make sure these hypothetical justices are committed to killing women

As if I needed another reason to actively work against you next election.

How about we move the country forward, not backward?

We will not “win” if we overturn Roe v Wade, and we won’t “lose” because we haven’t. Get over it, Senator, it’s time to stop treating us as a one-issue party. We don’t want litmus tests from the left, and we shouldn’t demand them on our side.

Someone is running for President.

Obvious by his disregard for his constituents and constant political stunts.

How much time and energy do you spend fighting for human life after they are born?

Not so much in Missouri.

God damn it, dude. We’re trying to run a nation here, not a bible school for backwards ass white men. Drop the misogyny.

First of all, NO. Secondly, how is this helpful right now. More authoritarianism from the patriarchy is not what we need to unite this country.

Politicians don’t belong in medicine. You take your religiosity and your judgment to church with you. Let us take care of medical decisions.

Whatever, Commander Waterford.

Can’t wait until Hawley is blocking all noms because the only people who fit his criteria are in jail for blowing up abortion clinics.

YASS! We need the Senate to just dictate to the SCOTUS how to rule on all controversial cases, because we all know how much more qualified politicians are to deliver fair justice.

And Republicans wonder why they’re losing suburban women in droves.

These culture wars are waged so elites like Hawley can pick our pockets for his big money donors. And yet people fall for this con again and again.

And as a supposed pro lifer, do you also want to see if they are cool with keeping brown kids in cages or allowing secret fed police to brutalize moms and vets, and if they hate health care?

Resign in shame, you terrible embarrassment to my state

You fill me with enthusiasm! For voting for your opponent! Can’t wait.

Please explain to us why you were afraid of witnesses during impeachment.

Too much truth about the president you worship?

This is just a tactic to get his base fired up. Distraction.

Fuck You, Josh Hawley.

What else do you do aside from being a shitbag of a human?

You will be replaced.

If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

Whatever. You’ll be in the minority soon.

Spouting the same old tired shit


In just a few months you will belong to the minority party, at which point you will cease to matter. In 2024 you will be voted out and we will never hear from you again. I look forward to all of this.
