Josh Hawley (r) [2016 file photo].

From the Lincoln Project:

The transcript:

Narrator: Senator Josh Hawley.
You ran in the right circles.
Went to the right schools.
Your path was set, but you blew it.
After a lifetime of preparation, you’re going to lose it all.
And as the walls close in, remember,
did this.
You did this,
and this,
and you did this.

Videos like this one,
showing an officer being crushed by rioters

Narrator: It’s your fault, Josh.
You led it.
You own it.
You spent your life
trying to become someone that history would remember
Well, Josh,
you got your wish.

A center of attention. Isn’t that special?

Some of the comments:

This take down is going to be satisfying to watch.

He’s still trying to hang on by his fingertips……but the spectacular fall is coming. A creep in denial is pathetic to watch.

Pop some popcorn!

Pass the popcorn.

He’s put his money on the wrong horse. He’s going to lose.

Hawley is everything that a leader shouldn’t be.

It is called to be on the wrong side of the History.

I prefer my elected officials to NOT be traitors.[….]

The condemnation and consequence and accountability has to come within the ‘current’ republican party and McCarthy and McConnell and all of their leader ship has shown only cowardice, this country will continue to pay the cost of their failure.

And definite traitor, whether witting or unwitting doesn’t matter. Traitor is the name history will remember him by.

Oh it’s witting. He knows exactly who he incited.

There is no room for sedition in our democracy. Hold every seditionist accountable. No one is above the law. Ashamed that he represents MO a state he doesn’t even reside in. For shame.

I wouldn’t trust this guy to dog sit my pooch, much less govern.

As someone who lives in Missouri and is ashamed of Josh Hawley’s conduct, I love this ad.

Yep, Josh Hawley belongs in the Hall of Shame for sure.

100 years from now when somebody down his line does some ancestry research ,they’ll probably be disappointed, embarrassed and sad

Josh “fist bump to traitors” Hawley you did this

Put all your eggs in the Trump basket. Would have been easier to work for respect.

Ain’t that always how it goes?

I wonder how him and his family feels seeing this devastating ad all over the airwaves? When will these people understand that everything that Trump touches dies

Great takedown! He deserves this and SO much more for his actions.

As bad as he’s been, Hawley will get worse.

He says he’s not being allowed freedom of speech. I do not think it means what he thinks it means. Such a tool.

The word “deplorable” comes to mind.

They used to say “The most dangerous place to stand in Washington DC is any place between Senator Josh Hawley and a live microphone.”

Now, the most deadly place in America is anywhere between Senator Josh Hawley…and the Lincoln Project.

Phenomenal ad. Phenomenal.

Still 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

Unprincipled ambition. If he is willing to do this to get ahead, what else has he done?

When I see the pictures of that day,I feel sad,angry,mad. History won’t forget Josh,you were on the wrong side of it. Someday the books will say so.

Another over-ambitious, self-absorbing politician who doesn’t have any principles. I will never trust this man.

You’d think that his Stanford and Harvard law education would shape him into a person guided by a moral compass , coupled with civility and wisdom- to differentiate between right and wrong. Well, it seems all of that went out the window on Jan 6th…

In anything having to do with numbers and data: “Garbage in, garbage out.”

Some people just have the heart and soul of a fascist. He is one of them.


And on and on.
