The question is….who gave this story to Politico. It’s embarrassing for Schmitt. Why didn’t someone explain this to him? Which Senator or his staff leaked this? I will hazard a guess. And it rhymes with folly.
Who cares? It’s New Zealand. Focus on Missouri and the US, damn
It’s all he’s got. That and naming Post Offices.
Caring for the people of New Zealand through 2 terms as PM during the last 6 years is quite an accomplishment. She’s an accomplished leader
Everyone hates you
No one will remember you.
Imagine being human enough to step down from such a huge position of power because you know when to step down? Ask your colleagues that question. What a terrible comment.
As much as Hawley is an embarrassment you are much worse.
Good lord – now he thinks he has an international platform. #NewZealand had 2400 deaths with 90% of their population vaccinated. You, on the other hand, sued school districts who were keeping kids safe. #StopThisSchmitt

▪️Stop reckless spending.
▪️Fight government overreach.
▪️Secure our border.
▪️Protect individual liberty
▪️Take on Big Gov/Big Tech censorship
▪️Dismantle the Administrative State
You had no problem with the 2 trillion tax cuts for the rich.
I agree. Govt overreach into my uterus is unacceptable.
Get right on that, liar.
And reckless trillion dollar tax cuts for the wealthy with no offset who pay only about 4% income tax already? Sheesh. Tell the whole truth. Don’t learn from your Trump and Santos.
It’s good to know you will protect women to make their own healthcare decisions and protect same sex marriages.
Aren’t you part of the administrative state that you say should be dismantled? In this new order of yours does it include allowing women civil liberties? Does it include the Lgbtq+ community? Does reckless spending mean cut any spending that helps the elderly and working class?
You’ve been elected. You can stop the campaign rhetoric and actually do something to fix what you perceive as a problem. What legislation have you prepared to do this. My guess NONE
Govt overreach: banning books, banning abortion, banning transsexuals from everyday life.
All GOP goals.
25% of our Country’s historical national debt is from the four years Trump was president. 25%!!!
LOL, you’re in the minority. Stuck with Huckster Hawley. What a shame.
He gets to name some Post Offices, maybe.
Says the man who wants to remove a woman’s choice.. and black history..”And in this country, we believe in individual rights, and we believe that people can speak their minds without the government or the regime censoring them or telling them what they can say and can’t say”
The whole reckless spending thing, kind of your party’s fault.
That’s a pretty big list of promises for someone who couldn’t win many cases as my MO AG!
That job is just a step on the ladder for ladder climbers.
Well it sounds like he is going to flap his gums and file useless lawsuits just like he did as AG.
And maybe name some Post Offices. Maybe.
Take on big government did y’all just take away the individual rights of 50% of US Citizens? Missouri did worse then that. Do you are a liar
Just cheap slogans that mask the extremist GOP agenda to wreck our economy and gut social services.
What a Statesman. And you’re the smart guy in Missouri?
pretty fucking rich considering you signed away women’s bodily rights. why don’t you shut the fuck up about “fighting government overreach” and “protecting individual liberty” and stop tweeting during the time i am paying your ass to work.
Do tell us all about your time as Missouri Attorney General, Eric (r).

Eric Schmitt @Eric_Schmitt
The COVID tyrants and The Experts™️ were wrong about every significant decision for 2 years yet none of them will ever apologize or will ever admit their catastrophic mistakes.
Republicans died at higher rates of Covid because of liars like you
Can you explain how this will help us in the future?
That’s just ridiculous. Public health officials acted appropriately according to the best available information. Even if that later came to be seen as improper, that’s just the way it goes. Sometimes you just don’t know what you don’t know.
Eric Schmitt (r) slept through all of his science classes.
Eric Schitt is vaccinated.
Why do I know this?
Because he couldn’t become a multimillionaire sitting in the senate if he got sick, had long Covid, or worse, all the while instilling fear and propaganda to further his goal and scare up votes for him.
Why are you crying about Covid precautions when your party is about to crash the economy by not paying our national debts?
Were they wrong? Your red wave didn’t come to fruition because y’all killed half of your base with lies. [….]
Actually, buddy, COVID deniers were wrong. Precautions saved lives. But you know that, don’t you. Just trying to play to the base.
Liar, liar, pants on fire. The Covid disinformation spread by people like you is responsible for more than 1 million US deaths.
1.3million dead Americans say what???
You got the vaccine. Are you going to publicly say that was wrong?
Shhh. His base can’t know this.
We don’t apologize to deplorables.
Your followers deserve better.
What is @EricLies lying about now?? Oh! The #TrumpCovid years and that whole bleach thing. #Missouri deserves better
Cannot not? What’s with the double negatives?
Ah, the power of the double negative.
Also, Eric (r) apparently slept through his English classes.
Speaking of tyrants…former MO AG Schmitt sued MO school districts over mask mandates, asked parents to send videos of schools who violated his mandate destroyed morale-turned parents against teachers instead of supporting districts during Covid.
You sound like someone who doesn’t believe millions of people didn’t die worldwide.
Including relatives of mine.
Please stop dishonoring their lives and their families and friends and loved ones.
I can’t even imagine how many people would have died had we done nothing. But continue going off. Over 1 million Americans dead. You guys don’t care.
Says the guy who sued school districts for trying to keep kids safe. You’re ok with children dying. The rest of us are not. But keep telling us what a good Christian you are. You make Hawley look good. And that’s not easy
Bullshit you lie.
There’s a reason there’s disinformation, it’s the fools like you.
You were vaccinated, I assume your children were as well. Enough with the lies from you and the rest of the GOP.
You’re such a tool
Don’t you ever get tired of being the Covid blow hard in charge? Big words with no facts = lies. That’s you, E.
Kindly fuck every conceivable manner & way off, you complete #Schmitthead.
You are the walking embodiment of a fool who thinks he’s smart.
POS Eric doesn’t understand how science works.
My god you mental midget. This is what Missourians get for electing this Josh Hawley devotee.
The “catastrophic mistake” was electing you to the senate. You are a nut job hillbilly.
You’re an idiot!
Still following the same BS. How many Missourians died because of your stupid politics.
You’re a complete nut. Congratulations on selling out.
* From Missouri DHSS “Statewide COVID-19 Deaths, by Week” – data through January 16, 2023.
LOL. Says the dude who’s all about ‘power and control’
I’m guessing you’re not seeing the irony with your previous actions sir?
The GOP wants abortion bans, contraception bans, book bans, speech bans. Now that’s about power and control.
Don’t worry when one party tries to overturn elections, tells kids which sports teams they can play on, bans books from libraries, and tells women they cannot show bare arms in the statehouse… that certainly isn’t about power and control.
What gas stove bans, liar?
are you that ridiculous lawsuit guy from Missouri suing public schools for publicity? YEAH, you are. this IS you! how did you get elected after pulling that stunt?
Weird how you like to watch people suffer medically.
When you’re not lying, you’re just mistaken.
And what is forced pregnancy and requirements for women to cover their bare arms about.
What about abortion bans like the one you signed a few months ago, Eric?
No one is banning gas stoves. Geesus, be better than the average republican politician. Don’t jump on the alarmist band wagon just because it rolls into town.
So what does it say about Missouri where women DON’T have the right to bodily autonomy? What does it say about the fact that women legislators can’t have bare arms on the house floor?
Bans on medical freedom and women’s arms… also all about control.
Isn’t suing school districts about power and control?
Alarmism, you say?
Women not being able to make decisions about their bodies though…what’s that about?
Denying voting rights, denying women’s right to choose, denying women health services, trashing earned benefits (medicare and social security) is all about power and control
No those are Republican lies
I’d appreciate it if you’d try to resolve real issues like our contaminated well field here in st charles, mo. #prioritize
And you’re all about not doing your actual job
But controlling women’s bodies is not?
Rightwing male who voted to deny women the right of bodily sovereignty is heard complaining about his home appliance crisis.
Faux home appliance crisis.
This is an intentional lie. There is no ban on gas stoves and Schmitt knows it.
It is sad to see a US Senator from Missouri lie so blatantly.
I’m trying not to be tired of being alarmed by how awful and narcissist you are.
Still trying to figure out what you actually do because you definitely do not contribute to making laws, Senator.
How about abortion bans, book bans, and birth control?
The right to bare arms!
We see what you did there.
Culture war nonsense which you can fix, right ? How about banning abortion and books? Is that about power and control?
You lack honor and integrity.
That’s what you are about.
Every accusation is an admission of guilt with you.
Banning books, abortion, history, dress codes, teaching religion in schools, backing Russia over Ukrainian people and investigations on everything that they can. Yes, there is a power thing going on but it’s the republicans
…Records checks of available law enforcement databases following the apprehension of an individual may reveal a history of criminal conviction(s). That conviction information is recorded in a U.S. Customs and Border Protection database, from which the data below is derived…
“…following the apprehension of an individual…”
So, the Border Patrol is doing its job.
[Image cropped to show a single category]
So, approximately 60% or more of the apprehensiona are for Illegal Entry or Re-Entry.
Leave it to Eric Schmitt (r) to play with repackaging in service to right wingnut political hackery.
“…Records checks of available law enforcement databases following the apprehension of an individual may reveal a history of criminal conviction(s). That conviction information is recorded in a U.S. Customs and Border Protection database…” [CBP]
“Encounters” versus “Apprehensions”. Interesting choice of words there, Eric Schmitt (r).
Some of the responses:
So the Trump DHS was letting in more criminals.
When will you start helping Missouri residents?
Oh wow… Can you believe how many criminal aliens got away with crime under Trump?
It’s insane. The CBP was too busy locking kids in cages to go after the actual bad guys.
Thank God we have actual leadership now.
Yeah that’s not a biased data source
They did spin the labels…
Any chance you’re going to work on any MO problems? Probably just hide in your new position like Hawley and get rich while accomplishing nothing.
Thank goodness that the border patrol is working for the Biden administration. They have made so many more arrests and encounters. This is what happens when you have professionals running the gov’t and not the circus clowns from 2017 – 2020.
You are not die hard. You are blow hard.
The question remains, Christmas movie, or not?
Weird — the Heritage Foundation lists these as “criminal alien ENCOUNTERS”… but the USCBP data that it links to says that these numbers are “Criminal Noncitizen CONVICTIONS.” Almost like the problem is that Trump admin enforcement was weak. In any case, the graph is dishonest.
We noticed that, too.
Interesting enough this survey doesn’t say anything about the pandemic being rampant in 2020 . And isn’t it a good thing that border patrol stops people?
Would you prefer that border patrol *not* encounter them?
Who gives a shit when the worst criminals in the country are congressional Republicans?
We see what you did there.
Can you work on actually fixing shit here in Missouri instead of just mindlessly pandering bullshit buzzword topics on twitter?
Surely you jest.
Now Eric, I hate Biden but this just shows an increase of enforcement by border patrol agents.
Isn’t that what we want? Reduced inflows of illegal aliens?
Uh, well, whatever.
The disgraced former president was too busy arresting children and their families to concern himself with actual criminals.
Are you really this ignorant?
Yes, please move long because you’re a total idiot
