Billy Long @auctnr1
Buddy of mine went to the Hospital in Springfield with #COVID Stayed 48 hours and just got home. Sent me a picture of himself on oxygen at home with this tag line… “Sent me home. Not dead enough to vote democrat.” 8:58 AM · Dec 1, 2020
That was so hilarious.
Some of the responses:
You’re an absolute embarrassment.
Mr. Long you represent me and my family in the United States House of Representatives, this is an office of high honor, your joke is not funny.
Our friend just lost her dad to Covid last week in a Springfield hospital. How can you represent our area that is seeing such an increase in deaths and make jokes about it? Absolutely disgusting!
One of my neighbors got sick in March with COVId and still cannot work full time.
I bet you think that’s hilarious.
Evidently he does.
It is more distasteful to tweet about death or conspiracy theories? Asking for a friend who cares about moral character and ethical behavior.
3,981 Missourians have died from COVID, but you’ve got jokes.
The voice of the GOP.
I truly sincerely from the bottom of my heart hope that you have a bad day
This is fucking disgusting.
No one is surprised by the company you keep.
This is disgusting. You have no honor.
You think this is somehow funny?
Amazing joke. Now do one about someone suffering from cancer.
hey there Billy, I’m a nurse in your congressional district who is EXHAUSTED, thanks so much for your support and all your hard work on my behalf, I’m gonna go make a donation to planned parenthood in your name as a token of my appreciation
Hahaha yes it’s funny because people are dying and you aren’t doing anything about it. Go kick rocks.
people are dying. you are a horrible person
good god man, wtf is wrong with you
I’m sure all the Missourians who died from COVID-19, Republican or Democrat, will think this is hilarious. You’re the reason we can’t get a damn thing done here because you take nothing seriously.[….]
Why are you all so proud of your stupidity and cruelty?
Why aren’t you visiting him at home? You’re not afraid are you?
Unbelievable slap in the face to the 100s of people that have died in your district from C19 while simultaneously belittling the efforts of health workers exhausting themselves to care for the perpetually increasing # of patients about to overwhelm our medical centers. Disgusting
I am deeply embarrassed you are my congressional representative. You are an embarrassment to us all. 159 people are at Cox South today. Why don’t you come home and see for yourself?
Jackass. 4000 dead in MO, Springfield hospitals full and this is the best you can do? How many of your constituents are mourning the loss of loved ones? Do you care at all?
You are hilarious!!! You are also a piece of shit!!!
You sick bad?ard, you actually think that’s funny? While people die everyday? I hope you rot in hell.
Aren’t you tired of always being the stupidest person in the room?
You are such a profoundly, deeply stupid human being, but what makes you notable is your lack of empathy.
Imagine posting something like this in the midst of a pandemic that has killed 267,000 Americans. You must be a pathetic shell of a man.
Wow, that you can make this joke and laugh shows your total lack of concern for your constituents who have died or are still suffering from this disease. You are a disgrace
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Let me explain this to you. Corporate liberals are woke capitalists. The corporatists love critical race theory and all the other warmed-over Marxist garbage. They sell out working Americans and sneer at them at the same time. That’s the New Left

Was this some kind of bizarre Senate office assignment hazing ritual requiring him to work “corporate”, “capitalist”, and “Marxist” into a single incoherent tweet? Just asking.
“The most dangerous place to stand in Washington D.C. is any place between Senator Josh Hawley and a live microphone” – Charles P. Pierce
Some of responses:
As Missouri Attorney General, you took millions in donations from a company scamming consumers. As Senator, you take money from corporate monopolists.
You’re bought and do nothing for working Americans.
Anti-union. Anti-relief. Anti-dignity.
But do keep “explaining.”
Let me explain this to you: you don’t live in Missouri and your voter registration at your sister’s house is fraud.
hell yeah, “capitalists” and “corporatists” definitely support Marxism. really smart shit here, my man
So, “woke capitalists, marxists”?
That makes a lot of sense
What the hell are you talking about?
this makes zero sense
This is the kind of answer on an exam in high school where the teacher would say quit using a bunch of words you read or heard somewhere without putting anything together in a paragraph that makes sense.
Woke Corporatist Marxist, damn.
I need a new bingo card.
This makes no sense
The only major legislative achievement that the Republican Party has accomplished in the past 4 years (when they controlled the White House & Senate) is a tax cut for millionaires and billionaires.
But go on, Senator Hypocrite, tell us more about how the liberals are elitists…
20+ years actually.
Tax cuts for the rich is the ONLY policy that the GOP has had for at least 2 decades.
So the “New Left” embraces Marxist social policies(?), but are capitalists. As capitalists they “sell out the working class,” as of course any good capitalist would. Finally, they condescend to them because they are economically beneath them? or social Neanderthals? I’m confused!
Oh no, I’ve got it figured out. This was just a prep school, Stanford/Harvard guy trying to figure out how to relate to the MAGAs and mangling it. I’m good now!
josh do you see the woke capitalists right now? are they in the room? does it smell like battery acid and burning toast?
Show me on this doll where the woke capitalists touched you.
this word salad needs seasoning
He should have added something about antifa for that extra flavor
Senator Stanford Yale really just gets working Americans, ya know? If he’s not trying to woo us w nonsense tweets like this he’s tweeting pics of his second home being built. Meanwhile, Missourians are suffering bc of Covid. Crickets.
It’s like a dump truck full of rejected Federalist articles ran into another dump truck full of misspelled signage from a militia rally. It’s astonishing that you managed to hoodwink admissions officials and professors at both Stanford AND Yale
I feel like the likes of Hawley or Cotton aren’t the future smart ones they keep warning us about.
There are a lot of words there. I’m not sure you know what any of them mean though.
Federalist slenderman from the “right to work” party has some words he’d like to string together. No, they don’t make any sense, but that won’t stop him.
Everyone is tweeting their gobblygook trying to find their post Trump populist stance. This one is interesting, hating on capitalism and marxism at the same time. And given the base, it could work. I mean, there is literally no party platform now and zero people seem to care.
Just say “Jews,” you little bigot. You’re not fooling anyone.
This is like every dumb Daily Caller outrage posting buzzword in one meaningless tweet, nice work Hosh Jawley
I feel like you just grabbed your GOP Magnetic Poetry Kit, threw a handful of loaded words at the fridge, and tried to compose a tweet with the ones that stuck.
Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
The Supreme Court is right.
It is unconstitutional to target houses of worship with nearly-unassailable regulations while secular companies/institutions are allowed to operate with basic COVID-19 guidelines.
They must ALL be allowed to open and operate.

The Pope gets it.
Some of the responses:
But that’s not what happened. Churches had laxer regulations than businesses. They got preferential treatment, but they wanted to be able to endanger even more of their congregants.
Get back to me when someone you “love” gets sick in the name of going to church.
Well here’s the difference ,you see those that are considered by you as “secular companies/institutions” ,they all pay taxes and help the economy!They also provide jobs and a paycheck for people to buy food and things needed during a pandemic! Churches provide a collection plate!
Utter nonsense. The #Constitution is not a suicide pact.
Can you give a substantive reason why churches are not happy with live-streaming, zoom or video conferencing services? And when you inevitably say “communion” all I hear is “collection plate”.
Covid likes this tweet
Hmmm think I’ll side with the Pope on this one.
This is so stupid. How are you in Congress?
Bigotry masquerading as patriotism.
Your kind of thinking is why 3,956 Missouri citizens and at least 267,000 American citizens have died from Covid.
Spoiler Alert God gave us free will and will not protect you from your own stupidity.
BTW have YOU personally returned to in person services, Vicky
Please #slickvick attend your nearest super spreader event (church), maskless as usual.
And start taxing churches.
Why do you hate Christians and want them to die of Covid?
The @GOP is making it virtually impossible to pin down who the dumbest member of their party is.
If only republicans cared this much about American lives
It is on message for 2020 that far too many are celebrating this holiday by traveling great distances, ignoring the possibility that they could infect others at their destination with a deadly virus, perpetuating the pandemic.
Seal the airlock.
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.
