This evening:

Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Pleased to report my coronavirus test came back negative. Praying for the President, the First Lady and every American who is battling this virus

Some of the responses:

Why did you have to take the test in the first place? Will you now start wearing a mask at events at and in the White House?

Just wait because anyone that is dumb enough to do this will catch it sooner than later.

Wait, virus?! Maybe you can pass some legislation to help those of us in dire straits in Missouri due to this brand new virus, Josh.

You gotta keep getting tested, because it might not show up for up to two weeks.

You must quarantine yourself for two weeks, so you should cancel the confirmation hearings.

Maybe the GOP will take the virus seriously now?

What if there was something you could do that would have an actual impact? Wear a mask and encourage others to do the same? Practice social distancing? Work on getting more financial relief for your constituents back home?

He sat maskless in the audience thats how concerned he is. #GOPSuperSpreaders

okay what about the 2k missourians who had a positive result and died?? can you wish them well? why haven’t you yet?

He is from DC and China.

Maybe wear a mask next time?

Americans don’t want your phony prayers, they want insurance.

What are you able to get your results back so quickly and everyone else has to wait days?

Also! If you really cared about anyone, you’d pass the Heroes Act.

Don’t take the test that makes the counts worse. Right? No?

Healthcare and protection for pre existing conditions would be more practical for the non elitists whose coverage is tied to their employment or can only afford catastrophic policy with high deductible. Hospitals do not accept prayer as payment

You should have ended this with everyone should wear a mask and social distancing when possible. You had enough characters.

while I work to rip the ACA and guaranteed health coverage away from every American. There. Finished it for you.

though you are negative right now, will you set a good example and quarantine for 14 days as recommended by the CDC?

It hasn’t been long enough. The virus takes 10 days to two weeks to incubate. You’ll have to get tested again in a week. And maybe a week after that as well.

Why is the GOP suing to end the ACA? Are you aware that most ordinary people can’t get tests after positive exposure without symptoms or wait for about 5 days for results?

And if you were in close contact with a case you still need to be quarantining…

This must be very bittersweet for someone who loves exposure as much as you do.

“The most dangerous place to stand in Washington D.C. is any place between Senator Josh Hawley and a live microphone” – Charles P. Pierce

Ouch. That one left a mark.

How about working on legislation for relief instead of just prayers.

Bro, if you tell me the sky is blue, I am going out to see for myself.

Your actions were wildly irresponsible & I hope waiting for those results scared some logic and moral fiber back into you. Do better

Narrator in the future: It didn’t. He didn’t.

If only there were things you could do beyond praying for these people…

Doesn’t mean you don’t have it. Hope you intend to quarantine for 14 days.
Your actions have been entirely reckless and you owe it to everyone you’ve endangered so far.

your thoughts and prayers make such a difference

must be nice,
able to get tested.
able to get care if you were sick.

must be nice.

Is it still a hoax?

Would have been great if you cared enough about the 200,000 folks who were previously alive to wear a mask

Better get tested more then once. Must be nice to have access right away too..

Wear a mask

Will you wear a mask to slow the spread?

You got lucky

Wear a mask, Josh.

Get bent

That test is only now. You were in the crowd acting irresponsibly. Only time will tell. Your behavior set a poor example.

Are you self quarantined per CDC guidelines? signed Missouri constituent #MaskUpMO


Super spreader

If you were around them you are not out of the woods please wear your damn masks

You didn’t wear a mask or socially distance.

Endangering other people.

This absolute disregard for human life is not unusual for Republicans — it’s true to your character.

Praying for your grift.

What terrible lack of judgment you showed by your behavior at the WH event. But what’s new

Wear a damn mask. And while you’re at it, wear some damn gloves.

Stay Home. Wash your hands. Don’t touch your face. Good luck to us all.
