Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…

Much hilarity and hackery from Missouri republicans ensued via social media:

You don’t know one single fact about this indictment.
As a lawyer and former Attorney General that is is unethical for a lawyer to cast aspersions on the Court.
You are a disgrace to the office you hold.

We know these aggressive investigations are only taking place because President Trump dares to challenge Joe Biden’s disastrous presidency, and I am deeply concerned for the direction of our country. These political prosecutions must end.

Stay in your lane, governor. If he did crimes he should do time, same as anybody

Attorney General Andrew Bailey @AGAndrewBailey
Never before has a sitting President weaponized the security apparatus of our great nation to take out a political opponent.

This is not the America our Founders knew.

One of the responses:

If you commit a crime then you need to be held accountable. If he’s innocent then he has nothing to fear, right?
Stop with the lies AG Bailey. Are you going to uphold the law or just gaslight and spew garbage??

Americans deserve to have trust in our nation’s justice system.

Voters in 2024 should choose our next president, not Biden’s politicized DOJ.

I really wanted to support you b/c you seemed like the old guard republican that believes in liberty and small gov’t… while preserving the rule of law. Sad tweet.

Well you just lost my vote. I was hopeful you would be in the group of Republicans that believed our country and preservation of democracy is more important than protecting a reality TV star that conned America into one term as President. But seems like you’re no different…
