he is crushing the fascists and demagogues, you are one and the same with the commies.
Obviously slept through junior high school.
Yes!! Fight tyrants from Jeff City who come to your town & say the know better than the locals & your community can’t decide for themselves!
Sarcasm? It’s hard to tell these days.
This is only a strong arm play to set him up for political office. Dont be fooled!
This is appalling.
Have you been vaccinated? Do you urge all Missourians to be vaccinated?
Oh you’re the AG. Disgusting.
Is it worth it, Eric? All those people who are going to get infected & die so you can rake in the right wing extremists money? Do your kids wear masks?
No one asked you to storm the beaches at Normandy, @Eric_Schmitt. Be a decent human being and leader and quit contributing to the harm of Missouri’s constituents.
Remember the good ol’ days, when fascist politicians didn’t rile up their base by accusing anyone who doesn’t support their candidate of being an enemy of the state? I mean, sure. It worked for Hitler, but is that really the country you want to live in?
Fascist in lawyer clothes
Forgive him, father, for his tiny monkey brain does not know what it has done. You are destroying the integrity of the Republic. We are at war with a foreign enemy. The Republic must not fall. This divisiveness will ruin us. What we do now decides the next 30 yrs. No going back.
You’re not “fighting tyranny”. You’re killing people.
You couldn’t explain Marxism if your life depended on it. You’re just an ignorant parrot pandering to other irresponsible idiots.
You’re a truly evil piece of shit, and I truly hope you get your come-uppance.
Geez sounds like something a guy from the 40’s would say. thanks for suing to give us no choice on masks. sounds like tyranny to me. You piece of shit you.
Eric Schmitt @Eric_Schmitt
Today my Office delivered a huge win for the people of St. Louis County & obtained an order halting the mask mandate.

What effect do you think that this “win” will have for the people of St. Louis County? #HonestQuestion [….]
Thank you AG Eric Schmitt! So grateful you are using your office to fight for our freedoms! May God bless you and your family!
Well, that’s one way of killing off your base
Basically, you sentenced more people to suffer and die so that you can get the GOP nomination in the Senate race. Monstrous.
I hate you.
Why is it such a big issue to wear a mask and get vaccinated? What are people afraid of? Why do you spend so much time and effort in this?
You obtained a temporary restraining order
Thank you @Eric_Schmitt for working hard to protect our rights and freedoms as Missourians!! #LikeABoss
This is great news – but please let us know when they actually put this into action. As of this morning every place is still requiring masks for the vaccinated and unvaccinated
Guess what? Private companies can still require you to wear a mask…
Thank you!! I’m terrified at what’s going on in our country but you are a hero to all of us [….]
Thanks for nothing. You don’t care about our health or welfare at all. Just catering to the MAGAs. Yet you call yourself pro-life. You have blood on your hands.
[….] Gonna make sure I’m a true Missourian for now on and do jack shit for other people.
“There’s a slight chance I can protect my fellow man by doing something simple? We’ll fuck them. Me, me, me. God bless and fuck off.” – MAGAts
Thank you for protecting our freedom!
Please fight against vaccine passports, even in the private sector. We cannot have this medical apartheid here.
The only thing for which you fight is your political career.
You’re a shameful person, and a horrible example for your children.
Good, now do Kansas City please. End all mask mandates.
Shut up Eric, what you are tweeting is another of your many lies from the lawyer! The Judge ordered a TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER! You have not stopped anything can happen when it’s issued as TEMPORARY! Tell SLC that truth!
Senator Roy Blunt @RoyBlunt
Because of vaccines, we have a pathway out of this pandemic. COVID vaccines are safe, effective, and accessible. Please consider getting vaccinated.
[….] 5:56 PM · Aug 2, 2021
The marks aren’t there yet. Probably won’t ever be.
Learn the truth! The vaccine is not safe!! Look at the CDC website!!
Stop Gaslighting the public. According to VAERS over 11,000 have died from the vaccine and an equal amount have permanent disabilities from the JAB. Vaccinated people are being infected with COVID at the same rate as the unvaccinated. And you are calling it “safe & effective?”
Vaccines are killing more people than Covid now. The CDC buries the info on its website.
they do not work
Stop spreading lies! The vaccine is not safe! The test fir the vaccine has been recalled due to all false positive results. The vaccine has failed its peer test!! There is nothing safe about it!
You can’t possibly know if this is safe. It hasn’t been around long enough to know what long term effects are. List of things we were originally told were safe: cigarettes, baby powder, J&J suntan lotion, DDT, asbestos, Avandia, Zantak, the list is endless.
Governor Mike Parson @GovParsonMO
Yesterday, the advanced life-support ambulance strike teams transported an additional 20 patients to hospitals outside the Springfield area to reduce hospital censuses in the region.
[….] 5:18 PM · Jul 30, 2021
Governor Mike Parson @GovParsonMO
The 10 ambulance teams have transported a total of 107 COVID-19 patients outside the area — some roundtrips of seven to nine hours or more.
ADEM and Missouri State Emergency Management Agency 5:20 PM · Jul 30, 2021
Some of the responses:
Thank You Governor Parsons for creating these new jobs. For a cow farmer your are pretty smart. More Covid cases more jobs! They will need to be transported to other hospitals due to Springfield being overwhelmed. You must be so proud!!!
A declaration isn’t enough, but actual action is needed if you want to stop overflowing hospitals. Stop trying to do nothing to appease deniers.
Maybe you shouldn’t have let it get to the point of needing this but in doing something like that you would have actually been a governor.
And yet the census in said hospitals still going up.
It’s weird to talk about there being so many people in the hospitals in SW MO that you are having people transported to hospitals 4 hours away like it’s some great accomplishment.
Sounds like a great reason for you to have a state wide mask mandate and stronger stance on vaccination. How many people need to die?
How about a “please get vaccinated” to go with this senseless bragging?? [….]
Help us out, Hee Haw. Is this one of those GOOD NEWS tweets orr nah?
Can you say…….. crisis?
Who pays for these transports?
Which shouldn’t have been necessary IF YOU WOULD DO YOUR JOB.
Yeah, not seeing the positive of having to transport people due to overcrowding [….]
And what did you do to address this growing concern yesterday ??
Photo op chases photo ops
@GovParsonMO staff finds these fun field trips for him, like the corn cob fest. No hard questions. @GovParsonMO is Missouri’s #dumberdesantis
To StL? Where your AG is suing to stop a mask mandate that will save lives? Asking for people who actually care about saving lives.
Yet 3 days ago he held a huge unmasked event in Springfield (which is in crisis) now he’s bragging about how fast ambulances are hauling extremely sick people out of here. [….]
So, you going to do anything other than tweeting at the problem? Maybe suggest or (gasp!) mandate masks for indoor public spaces?
Wonder what could be done to prevent the need for this?????
That’s great. How about a mask mandate to help slow the hospitalizations and give our medical hero’s some relief?
Nah, he doesn’t give a shit. Never has. [….]
Would have been better of you could have acted faster in granting resources foe the ACS. You dragged out the decision and they had to find another solution.
And . . . .? You are doing WHAT to help stop this?
Rural hospitals are disappearing, and you brag about a fleet of ambulances that can do round trips to the big cities in 6 hours.
Yeah, about that…
I thought the virus was a hoax and we don’t need to vaccinate, wear masks?
Transporting them outside one area does not reduce burden on healthcare workers, including this “strike team” (whatever that means) Do you think if Springfield #s are low MO will quit making national news and you won’t look like the terrible leader you are?
Too bad you failed to do your job. We wouldn’t even be seeing this.
Finish the tweet….
due to your inept leadership and not actually giving a crap about your citizens.
No hospitals beds available in Springfield? That is part of the reason STL and KC felt it was necessary to safeguard the limited urban hospital beds w. a mask mandate. Can you call off your attack dog @AGEricSchmitt with his worthless lawsuits so we can protect all Missourians?
There’s that, too.
And let’s not forget about the State Fair coming up in covid central. [….]
Your vaccination strategy FAILED!! As of 7/16/21 Mo vaccination rate – 41%. Your refusal to implement a mask mandate killed people !!In Mo New Delta Covid cases have spiked over the past month. One in every 350 people in Mo has been diagnosed with COVID !! Worst Governor ever!!
Why are you having to transport patients? Are they going on your bicentennial tour with you?
Representative Patty Lewis, a Democrat, represents Jackson County (District 25) in the Missouri House of Representatives. She was elected to her first two-year term in November 2020.
In addition to her legislative service, Lewis has more than 20 years of health care experience as an ICU/Critical Care Registered Nurse, as well as a Health Care Executive. As an ICU nurse, Lewis cared for the most vulnerable patients in the hospital. As an executive, she was responsible for leading teams, building cases, and identifying solutions to improve patient safety for health care organizations across the world.
I am tired of the political mask debate! It is about LIFE or DEATH. Hospitals in KC are filling up & going on diversion which means if you or a loved one get sick w/COVID, has a heart attack or is seriously injured in a car accident, there may not be a hospital bed for you.(1/3) 4:02 PM · Jul 28, 2021
(2/3)I support @QuintonLucasKC #MaskMandate. This is an evolving virus. According new info from the @CDCgov even if you are vaccinated, you can still get the Delta variant, be asymptomatic, have a LARGE viral load in your system & spread the virus. The entire state is in the red.
(3/3)If you care about your neighbor, those with underlying health conditions & children 11 yrs old & younger, PLEASE, please, please #GetVaccinated. And let’s all #MaskUp until we reach heard immunity. #HealthCare shouldn’t be political. #MOLeg #MaskUp
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas [2019 file photo].
Mayor Q @QuintonLucasKC
I have stuck with CDC guidance throughout the pandemic and today is no different.
I will return Kansas City to a mask mandate indoors based upon national and regional health guidance and discussion with other Kansas City leaders. I will provide further details in the morning. 6:49 PM · Jul 27, 2021
Mayor Q @QuintonLucasKC We cannot ignore the rapid spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant in Missouri—outpacing much of the country. We will do all we can to ensure our corner of this state is safe.
Some of the responses:
So frustrating. People do the right thing and get vaccinated and those that don’t cause masks to come back.
There will not be any enforcement
I really, really dislike masks. I’m vaccinated and I’m over them. But this is the right call as people continue to gauge their comfort level with the vaccine. Hopefully we see more shots and fewer masks down the road…. for now, we gotta keep folks safe.
I voted for you and will vote for you again, but as a vaccinated adult, I absolutely hate this and will shop, spend money in Overland Park instead of KCMO whenever possible. I doubt I am the only one.
You didn’t vote for him, you never will. You shop there all the time anyway.
Good call. You hire a professional engineer to design a bridge . You don’t let the guys at the bar draw it on a napkin .
Use the professionals.
How long will this last? I really want my senior year to be normal. I’ve seen what the class of 20 and 21 went through and how badly it affected them, I don’t want the same to happen to class of 22
Tell that to the anti-vaxxers.
Ya my husband and I were gonna honeymoon in kc but not now
And they said it wouldn’t last…
Thank you for ignoring the giant toddlers who can’t handle wearing a simple piece of cloth.
Thank you. I’m vaccinated but had a positive test. We still need masks until people get vaccinated.
Thank you for leading our city in a better direction because the honor system just was not working here.
Thank you for following the guidance of experts and healthcare leaders in our community.
If you don’t like it then get the vaccine. The more people vaccinated the quicker we can get out of this. Anti-vax babies are ruining this for everyone. Grow up and think about someone other than yourself for a change.
So why did I get vaccinated???
I have 2 littles under 6. I’ll do it so they don’t get it. They cannot get vaxed like me and my wife. MO hillbillies can kiss my ass.
This makes no sense. Masks only protect others from getting the virus. People who have had the vaccine cannot pass the virus to others therefore we should not have to wear masks. This is just a control thing.
Has difficulty paying attention and keeping up.
Glad I don’t live in kcmo..all fear porn to get more people into the worlds biggest science experiment
Thank you for post thinking this. It was getting hard to spot you wackos when you took your red hats off
Risky and Reckless.
I do have a question actually. What is the particle size of the droplet of water the COVID virus travels on when it goes from their sneeze into your mouth?
Slept through school, will never understand science.
This is the right thing to do for our communities. If all get on the same page, we are stronger. Thank you.
Nope. I will support and provide commerce to anyone who opposes this mandate.
Yes, with your billions of wealth.
Awesome! I will keep my spending in Kansas then! I like it better over here anyway!
Has difficulty understanding simple concepts.
I will not, under any circumstance comply.
Some people never get out of nursery school.
Good. Had to be done unfortunately. Its ashame not everyone did their part to end this
Thank you mayor Q. Everyone, please know this isn’t a punishment. The delta and lambda variants are more deadly because they rapidly replicate in our bodies to the point where even when vaccinated, you can still transmit the virus – but will most likely not have severe symptoms
Even though breakout cases are rare (when vaccinated people contract and spread covid), they are still happening. Any amount of prevention could be the difference between having enough medical staff/supplies to help those who do get sick.
Civil Disobedience will rain supreme. I won’t wear one and will enter businesses at will without one
Might want to rein that in a bit. The reign in Speign falls meignly on the pleign. Even better:
Don’t cut yourself on that edge
Thank Mayor Q for your leadership. I know it’s really hard with all the pushback you’re sure to get, but it’s definitely the right thing to get things back under control, especially until we can get our kids vaccinated.
Kc will lose money thanks and so if anyone that enforces this. That’s not what we need
Believes that people can take it with them.
Thanks anti-vaxxers. For nothing.
Why? We have a major major problem that’s actually fixable. Only problem is, it requires a general sense of civic responsibility.
They’d have to have morals for that
Morals for taking a non-fda approved experimental vaccine for a virus with a 99% survival rate?
Slept through school, has difficulty with actual facts and large numbers.
I’m vaccinated. I dont want to mask again. If its because I can spread it to others who refuse to vaccinate, its their problem. Hospitals should just refuse covid cases. Have them go home, see what happens and deal with the consequence. Cant save those who don’t want to be saved
Tempting, but our society is not supposed to be made up of sociopaths. Oh, wait…
Thank you. Who didn’t see this coming? It was just a matter of time. An ugly world we live in where people don’t care about one another and have been consumed with conspiracy theories and hate. What a thankless job you have to maintain some civility.
We never stopped wearing masks. When I go to a public indoor place and 40% are vaccinated but 90% are not wearing masks. The numbers just never added up. Those who have chosen to not be vaccinated are the reason for this.
Thank you for announcing this in time for me to move my birthday party to Johnson County!
Since you’re so popular they’ll really appreciate hosting that super spreader event.
I hate mask, I am vaccinated. That being said, I think you are making the right call, and if this saves lives, even of those who fight it, it’s worth it.
We are all tired of wearing masks, but I am *so* relieved to hear this! Definitely the right call to keep the vulnerable population safe!
It’s reached a point where now it’s simply unfair to those who have done everything they could to not have to wear masks and go back to normal… What do you plan to tell rising seniors who will have now almost completely missed out on their high school experience???
Uh, they’re saving lives and helping prevent the pain and suffering for many others? That should do.
Thank goodness Mayor Q
Thank you. Also thank you for my frail elderly mother and my grandkids who are not yet old enough for the vaccine.
I’m done with this. I’m leaving kc and moving rural. You guys are crazy.
Are you sure about all of that?
Nobody likes masks, but I’ve never stopped wearing one. We need to beat this to ground.
We have the stupid anti-vaxxers to thank for the this. Thanks a lot, a-holes!
WE WILL IGNORE YOU!! Time to stand up !!!!!
You think you’re so big and bad huh? You can’t stand up when you’re on a ventilator, princess
This isn’t what the science shows. Damage to a child’s lungs begins in as little as THREE MINUTES and 68% of children have problems. The damage you are doing far exceeds the intervention.
(The lawsuits will cost billions.)
Wait for it:
That study has been retracted because it used bad methods and measurement equipment.
These babies cant wear a mask to walk in a store for ten minutes while doctors and nurses on front lines wear them for 12 hours plus a day. Who are the real snow flakes?
That’s their job they get paid to do and chose a careeer path in…they’re not going grocery shopping they are performing surgery.
That’s so cute, thinking surgeons are the only people in hospitals.
How is making vaccinated people wear masks going to help stop the spread of the Delta Variant? I’ll wait…
Didn’t have to wait long:
Breakthrough cases. Also immunocompromised aren’t as protected from the vaccines. #leukemia
This has been another edition of short answers to simple questions.
What a ridiculous statement, after TFG especially.
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
Wtf? Where are you coming up with these lies?
I’m embarrassed that I voted you in the past
Umm….please remind us of the name of the former president who claimed dictators were his friends?
The GQP lie, lie, and then lie some more.
* Keystone wouldn’t have brought lower gas or energy prices to Americans.
* Keystone wouldn’t have created more than a couple dozen new jobs at most.
* Nord Stream 2 is already nearly done and follows the same pathway as the original.
Hey remember when a bunch of your GQP colleagues visited moscow on july 4th and then came back pushing russian propaganda?
LOL. Is this a parody account ?
You are abusing prescription meds, aren’t you?
Full on Q.
Stands to reason…….
Vickster rode the #racist birther, tea party wave into office.
Of course she’d embrace the #Q movement to garner votes.
America benefits in no way from the leaky tube of toxic Canadian sludge Vicky is shilling for, so you have to wonder is she being bribed or does she just really love poisoning Native lands?
Please do Missouri a favor, Go Away.
Oh yea take hawley with you also
It wasn’t “America’s” pipeline. It was for Canadian oil to pass through the USA for shipping elsewhere out of the Gulf. Do you have ANYTHING accurate and worthwhile saying or are you just a pipeline for lies and misinformation?
Yes. This has been another edition of short answers to simple questions.
Vicky doesn’t care about anyone except an endorsement from Trump. We need someone to vote her out. She is a traitor
Does anything come out of your vicious mouth that isn’t a lie. You have no business being in congress. And I guarantee you will never make senator! This country is fed@up with your kind! Vote you out!

[….] 6:50 PM · Jul 23, 2021
Some of the responses:
You’ve gone a couple of days without losing in court, do you need a fix?
My kids can’t get vaccinated. We need to either get more people vaccinated, or do what is necessary to protect everyone from the spread among the unvaccinated. Do not take legal action against St. Louis City and County doing what needs to be done.
Setting yourself up for another loss in court?
I’m one of those people and I’d like to know how many times you’ve promoted vaccination. Looking back through July tweets….that would be a big ZERO times. As a doctor who works inpatient, I suggest you drop the politics and do something useful.
You are completely out of touch with the seriousness of COVID-19 and the Delta variant. Individuals choosing not to be vaccinated are a problem as yourself, and Missouri Republicans who are against mask mandates or other issues for the greater good of our communities and state.
Are you going to sign the lawsuit this time or find a totally different embarrassing way to lose?
We’re not your grandstanding springboard either. Leave us alone. #STL
Read the room, dude.
Ohohoh… Scary Eric is gonna sue!!! It will end like the rest of them
Is it not the most important role of government to protect its citizens from harm? Why would you choose to take a political and legal position that ignores the health and welfare of your fellow citizens?
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Replace the lies with the truth! That’s what my Love America Act is all about. No more critical race theory in schools. Teach our kids the truth of who we are – a nation of liberators
[….] 6:33 PM · Jul 22, 2021
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
The Left wants to teach our kids that America is systemically racist. That’s false and it’s meant to divide. It’s time to replace lies with the truth! America is a great nation of good people – and our kids should be proud of that. That’s why I’m introducing the Love America Act
6:20 PM · Jul 22, 2021
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
It will require schools that get federal tax dollars to teach kids the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution & Bill of Rights, and the Pledge. These texts affirm the truths that unite us, and make us a great people.
6:20 PM · Jul 22, 2021
The first page of the United States Constitution  – National Archives – detail
Uh, the Pledge of Allegiance isn’t a founding document. By the way, which version?
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
No more critical race theory. No more hate. Let’s teach our kids what unites us as Americans – what we love together. Let’s teach them the truth
6:20 PM · Jul 22, 2021
As usual, there is much hilarity in the responses:
“And what unites as Americans in my world is complaining about Simon & Schuster canceling my book deal…”
Hawley when Jim Crow laws were enacted and when they had separate black and White dining areas was that racist?
Critical Race Theory is not being taught in schools!!!! It’s not!
Factual real history is taught and should be honored.
In that history are some things we cannot be proud of. But that doesn’t make them less important to look at and understand.
No whitewashing the facts.
Josh Hawley (r) doesn’t care.
Critical Race Theory is not taught in A SINGLE SCHOOL IN AMERICA. It’s presented to college students who have the ability to discern the information. Totally misleading…. AS USUAL
Putting a band aid and blinders on do not help solve our problems and unite us. Being honest and teaching our history, not a whitewashed history, and how we got to where we are is how we heal and grow together.
Ignoring prejudice won’t eliminate it. Ignoring hate doesn’t solve our problems. Turning our backs on issues is a plan for failure. Teach the truth. We can teach our children to face reality and they can still love our country
Wtf Josh, should we not teach children about the truth that there was slavery.. that the QOP has been hate mongering all through the last 2 years… just teach the truth good and bad..people can’t stick their heads in the sand
Like what you did on 1/6?
Sounds great. Let’s teach them the truth. All truth. Even the painful truth. Denying the racism that’s woven into our society isn’t teaching truth. Teach the truth. Allow our children to form opinions based on true history, not the whitewashed version you propose.
As a model for what you want schools to teach, can you begin with the history of how Missouri became a state?
What would you teach? Would you teach that Missouri’s first constitution prohibited the entry of free Negros and mulattoes?
“No more hate”… Does that mean LGBT are in or out? Hard to tell with you.
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Why are you so against education & critical thinking? It’s not about division (unlike your rhetoric) it’s about taking an honest look at where we started, and trying our best to move forward.
Teaching history is not hate.
First. Critical race theory isn’t taught at our schools. Second, you can’t just pick and choose the history taught. History can be both bad and good. Our kids can take it!
Critical race theory isn’t taught in schools. It is usually taught as an elective in High level college classes. Stop fear mongering.
Dude who helped sell the big lie that the election was stolen and then incited a violent insurrection in an attempt to overthrow the government says what about the truth?
None of what you listed is critical race theory, son. It’s history.
So a guy who should be in jail for insurrection is introducing a bill to teach what is already taught because a manufactured outrage like Chris Rufo’s Critical Race Theory stunt is dividing people, causing FOX News viewers to believe teaching American history is bad. Got it.
You don’t know the first thing about the truth.
Some of us don’t love insurrections.
You should learn the definitions of the words and phrases you use.
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
The really frightening ones use it as a blueprint.
You know full well CRT is only taught in colleges, but far be it from you to be honest with your constituents.
You are the opposite of a uniter.
I thought you said that you want to teach kids the truth. Truth is, the US used slave labor to build. Then even after freeing the slaves, the government systematically denied them basic human dignity and rights. You want to teach fairy tales.
So the way to love America is to restrict criticism of it? #fascism
If you can’t handle the facts of slavery and racism in the United States, you’re not concerned with the truth. You’re only concerned with propaganda.
This is the most pie in the sky bullshit I’ve ever heard.
It’s in his nature.
You’re never going to be president, Josh.
There’s already a really low bar. Donald Trump. I rest my case.
Pigeonholing all public schools to say the pledge? Bullshit.
You take civics teaching which is already being done and legal theory and confuse people by misleading through lying about what is actually happening. Insurrectionist continue to foment for the over through of the constitution. You should resign.

Don’t blame me. I didn’t vote for Parsons.
A low bar [….]
I don’t trust anything that comes out of his mouth or through his office.
Really the worst.
It is depraved indifference. I think he should be charged with manslaughter. Everything he has done from the beginning left Missourians vulnerable. He truly does not care what happens to the citizens of this state.
He’s so incompetent, and very thin-skinned when someone criticizes his failures.
