A Chinese spy balloon was also a trial balloon testing Joe Biden. He failed miserably.

The incompetence of the Biden Admin is on full display to friend & foe alike.

The American people deserve answers which is why I’ve called for a full investigation.

Some of the responses:

If this is a real spy balloon, so our invincible airforce just let it float and pass through the whole country and let it camera along our military base below? Nice [….]

JFC. Too stupid to remember to breathe. They can just look it up, you know, on the Internets:

I was expecting your response to the Chinese Balloon was to sue the Pattonville School District..

We see what you did there.

cool. i’d like to know what other spy balloons trump allowed to fly over the country.

You’re an embarrassment to Missouri.

What do you call Trump hiding the fact this occurred 3 times during his administration?

Oh Eric, always a day behind on your performative political outrage.
It’s no wonder that your own party in the senate are already keeping their distance from you.
You’re like Missouris version of Santos.

Or, Missouri’s version of…Josh Hawley (r). Heh.

I’m a constituent and would like to know your response when three similar balloons flew over the US when Trump was president.

Joe shot it down. [….]

Where is your rage tweet about trumpy saying and doing nothing when they were overhead during his term?

To be fair, Eric Schmitt (r) was busy soliciting snitches and trying to sue school districts.

Will that investigation also look into the three times Chinese spy balloons invaded our airspace under Trump? And the coverup?

He followed the advice of the military regarding a military operation.

Who the f*** are you?

How long are you going to flail this dead horse?

Be sure to ask for an investigation of the three balloons over out territory during the Trump years, where he sat around watching tv and did nothing about them.

Doubling down on ignorance doesn’t play well when your audience is national, Senator. If you want to investigate, start with why the American people were not advised by the previous administration of 3 prior incidents of this nature.
