Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
It’s sad. The Google-KC Star has become a dumping ground for Democrat BS no other publication will run. Enjoy Iowa!

That was sort of quick.
Some of the responses:
Your concern is noted. Is your concern that Iowa is now part of China?
Speaking of out of state, how’s Virginia?
After an exhausting day voting in an unqualified judge – but nary a bit of help for his constituents who are food insecure, housing insecure, dying – Josh still finds time to trash post. What a guy!
It’s sad. Senators used to represent all the people of the state-not just those who voted for them. KC and STL produce 60% of Missouri’s GDP and are the state’s population centers. It would be good to have a Senator who worked for/respected city residents too.
Josh Hawley committed voter fraud. When will these champions of vote integrity examine his vote?
Hawley rails against DC elites all the while he’s become one.
You’re clapping for Missourians losing their jobs. Can’t wait to clap when you lose yours.
All this time I was told that if you cut taxes, that would bring jobs to the state. could #MOLeg be wrong?
Also, YOU ARE BRAGGING ABOUT LOSING JOBS!!!! Did you sniff some of that construction glue while building your new home?
Way to make fun of people losing their jobs. You seem like you’re really in touch with life
Act like a United States Senator.
That sounds a lot like coastal elitism to me! How’s living at your sisters house, Josh?
How are you enjoying Virginia?
“Enjoy Iowa?” What does that mean?
Please stop acting like a child.
Fraud voter alert!
Josh flies over us in his private plane, from family vacations with Mitch McConnell, to Las Vegas fundraisers with Donald Trump, to his luxury house in D.C. Josh Hawley is just another Washington conservative.
We see what you did there.
How about maybe doing something about the refrigerated trucks stuffed with dead Missourians instead of shit posting like teenager? This is not what you’re paid for with my tax dollars.
What I really mean is: No, I don’t live in Missouri, but I need the people of Missouri to keep giving me a job.
Stop asking questions I don’t want to answer!
Dude. Read the room.
250,000+ dead of covid.
People unemployed/under employed.
People uninsured/under insured.
People losing housing during a pandemic.
Hospitals & schools need financial help.
Trump still refuses peaceful transition of power.
Get your priorities straight!
Your brand of privilege mixed with grievance is an insufferable bore.
You’re really just mad that the Star called you out for living in a $1.3 million home in Virginia, while pretending to be a Missourian by using your sister’s address. Kinda cuts against your whole Working Man cosplay.
Hmmmm. And you are located where? #hawleymustgo
Over 250,000 Americans are dead from Covid and Mr. Pro-life is worried about where a newspaper is printed. Glad you got your pro-life priorities in order.
Taking notes from the losing side, I see.
Take the path of a privileged, pathetic coward with a big mouth and go down swinging there, Joshie.
Oh you mean like how you moved to Virginia but still claim to represent Missouri? Keep talk out both sides of your mouth Senator.
Say, Josh, while you’re attacking all the coastal “elites”, where do you live? Apparently not in missouri? Virginia perhaps? Missouri deserves a senator who at least spent a significant amount of time in the state, not just a momentary senate launch site. #PoshJosh
What do you care? You live in Virginia. You seem like you just want to be a Twitter troll. Why don’t you just do that? Your self promotion is boring
You’re just mad that they think you’re an idiot. News flash: most of us do
This is what you are now? Just a shit-poster disguised as a politician?
SARS-CoV-2 infection is transmitted predominately by respiratory droplets generated when people cough, sneeze, sing, talk, or breathe. CDC recommends community use of masks, specifically non-valved multi-layer cloth masks, to prevent transmission of SARS-CoV-2. Masks are primarily intended to reduce the emission of virus-laden droplets (“source control”), which is especially relevant for asymptomatic or presymptomatic infected wearers who feel well and may be unaware of their infectiousness to others, and who are estimated to account for more than 50% of transmissions.1,2 Masks also help reduce inhalation of these droplets by the wearer (“filtration for personal protection”). The community benefit of masking for SARS-CoV-2 control is due to the combination of these effects; individual prevention benefit increases with increasing numbers of people using masks consistently and correctly.
Source Control to Block Exhaled Virus
Multi-layer cloth masks block release of exhaled respiratory particles into the environment,3-6 along with the microorganisms these particles carry.7,8 Cloth masks not only effectively block most large droplets (i.e., 20-30 microns and larger)9 but they can also block the exhalation of fine droplets and particles (also often referred to as aerosols) smaller than 10 microns ;3,5 which increase in number with the volume of speech10-12 and specific types of phonation.13 Multi-layer cloth masks can both block up to 50-70% of these fine droplets and particles3,14 and limit the forward spread of those that are not captured.5,6,15,16 Upwards of 80% blockage has been achieved in human experiments that have measured blocking of all respiratory droplets,4 with cloth masks in some studies performing on par with surgical masks as barriers for source control.3,9,14
Filtration for Personal Protection
Studies demonstrate that cloth mask materials can also reduce wearers’ exposure to infectious droplets through filtration, including filtration of fine droplets and particles less than 10 microns. The relative filtration effectiveness of various masks has varied widely across studies, in large part due to variation in experimental design and particle sizes analyzed. Multiple layers of cloth with higher thread counts have demonstrated superior performance compared to single layers of cloth with lower thread counts, in some cases filtering nearly 50% of fine particles less than 1 micron .14,17-29 Some materials (e.g., polypropylene) may enhance filtering effectiveness by generating triboelectric charge (a form of static electricity) that enhances capture of charged particles18,30 while others (e.g., silk) may help repel moist droplets31 and reduce fabric wetting and thus maintain breathability and comfort.
Human Studies of Masking and SARS-CoV-2 Transmission
Data regarding the “real-world” effectiveness of community masking are limited to observational and epidemiological studies.
An investigation of a high-exposure event, in which 2 symptomatically ill hair stylists interacted for an average of 15 minutes with each of 139 clients during an 8-day period, found that none of the 67 clients who subsequently consented to an interview and testing developed infection. The stylists and all clients universally wore masks in the salon as required by local ordinance and company policy at the time.32
In a study of 124 Beijing households with > 1 laboratory-confirmed case of SARS-CoV-2 infection, mask use by the index patient and family contacts before the index patient developed symptoms reduced secondary transmission within the households by 79%.33
A retrospective case-control study from Thailand documented that, among more than 1,000 persons interviewed as part of contact tracing investigations, those who reported having always worn a mask during high-risk exposures experienced a greater than 70% reduced risk of acquiring infection compared with persons who did not wear masks under these circumstances.34
A study of an outbreak aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt, an environment notable for congregate living quarters and close working environments, found that use of face coverings on-board was associated with a 70% reduced risk.35
Investigations involving infected passengers aboard flights longer than 10 hours strongly suggest that masking prevented in-flight transmissions, as demonstrated by the absence of infection developing in other passengers and crew in the 14 days following exposure.36,37
Seven studies have confirmed the benefit of universal masking in community level analyses: in a unified hospital system,38 a German city,39 a U.S. state,40 a panel of 15 U.S. states and Washington, D.C.,41,42 as well as both Canada43 and the U.S.44 nationally. Each analysis demonstrated that, following directives from organizational and political leadership for universal masking, new infections fell significantly. Two of these studies42,44 and an additional analysis of data from 200 countries that included the U.S.45 also demonstrated reductions in mortality. An economic analysis using U.S. data found that, given these effects, increasing universal masking by 15% could prevent the need for lockdowns and reduce associated losses of up to $1 trillion or about 5% of gross domestic product.42
Experimental and epidemiological data support community masking to reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The prevention benefit of masking is derived from the combination of source control and personal protection for the mask wearer. The relationship between source control and personal protection is likely complementary and possibly synergistic14, so that individual benefit increases with increasing community mask use. Further research is needed to expand the evidence base for the protective effect of cloth masks and in particular to identify the combinations of materials that maximize both their blocking and filtering effectiveness, as well as fit, comfort, durability, and consumer appeal. Adopting universal masking policies can help avert future lockdowns, especially if combined with other non-pharmaceutical interventions such as social distancing, hand hygiene, and adequate ventilation.
And, this from a member of the republican majority in the Missouri House:
Rep. Justin Hill @HillForMissouri
Replying to @Kip_Kendrick
Masks don’t work against COVID. 9:52 PM · Nov 14, 2020
Some of the responses:
@HillForMissouri what medical school did you graduate from?
@HillForMissouri another thing. From an ER nurse at Progress West today, where my mom in law tested + today. 6 dead on her shift last 24 hrs. 2 couples came in husbands passed. It’s going to be a bad winter. Stay in & wear a mask when out. Funeral homes cant keep up. Ur a liar
Can you walk outside in the cold & see your breath? Do you know why? Because it shows the aerosol droplets when you exhale.. this is an amazing visual of how the virus can spread.. guess what happens when you put a mask on?? It’s the craziest.. thing you don’t see your breath
I wonder how someone can be this dense, but then I see you attended Liberty “University.” The stranglehold conservatives have on Missouri will doom us all.
Look, sir. Your constituents are DYING because of this stubbornness. Masks are not a 100% miracle armor but YES there is a ton of evidence that they help prevent transmission. A LOT. It’s a cheap, painless way to HELP. Seat belts don’t work either if you don’t buckle up.
You think Rep Hill cares if people die? Come on…the man is staunchly pro-life because it’s ok to regulate a woman’s body but it’s a crime to force her to wear a mask to keep from killing actual people.
Really? Then why did MO Governor @GovParsonMO approve this new set of guidelines for MO schools which emphasize mask wearing? You could go spend a day in an ICU full of COVID patients, where you don’t wear a mask or need one, to prove your claim. Prove all of them wrong.
The ignorance Justin Hill is demonstrating with this tweet is dangerous and an embarrassment for his constituents. He is not fit for office.
You can scroll his Twitter for 2 seconds and find that out. Koolaid drinker if I’ve ever seen one.
What a jackass statement.
This is why your district has been called out by the physicians on the task force in recent weeks for increases in both case numbers and hospitalizations.
I could share scientific journals, including from the US Navy, to prove you wrong, but you wouldn’t care. Quite a dangerous game you’re playing with our lives.
Here’s a simple explanation
a mask reduces the distance a bunch of your spew goes
I make contact with less or none of your spew & I don’t end up getting your crud
Also, a mask helps limit the amount of crud I suck in
All documented by scientists which you are not one.
Based on this tweet alone, I can say you are no public servant.
The next time you go seek medical care please ask your doctor not to wear a mask and hope it’s not one of the many that still have to work while they are covid positive.
And this is exactly the reason why we’re not able to get the virus under control here.
He’s doing this for attention. Most of his tweets are “look at me, I’m so shocking”. We need leaders in this state, instead we have preformitive attention seekers.
Kinda like a life vest doesn’t keep a boat afloat or a parachute doesn’t prevent airplanes from falling out of the sky?
What doesn’t work against COVID is the GOP.
You keep going out without one. The virus will beg to differ.
Actually, masks do help. Prideful ignorance, on the other hand, does indeed not work against COVID.
Science is impenetrable to the feeble-minded
That’s a lie that will get people killed.
Good to see you grew up, but you didn’t get over chugging lead paint.
That’s a lie that can cause death and the overwhelm of our health system. Who hurt you? Seek therapy.
This is ignorant and puts your constituents at risk. Masks work, so quit politicizing the issue.
Stupidity doesn’t work against the virus.
That Liberty education failed you…may want to ask for a refund.
Masks work. The doctors and scientists say they work. Crackpots don’t believe it.
And in your case, science doesn’t work against ignorance.
The ignorance just keeps on giving … just incredible
Bless your heart little man. Good to know you are so humble about your medical and scientific credentials #MOLeg
Got that good Liberty education, i see.
This is a reckless lie, Mr. Hill. Your constituents & all Missourians deserve better.
Repeating a lie does not make it true.
The Show-me State.
Because reading is hard.
Oh you dangerous idiot.
Dedicated public servant? That’s a joke.
Wait just a sec everybody, I’m sure an intellectual like Justin Hill just wants to have a good faith debate about the research he’s conducted which led him to contradict the prevailing consensus among public health/infectious disease experts. Lol jk, he’s weapons-grade stupid
You are not a scientist or medical professional. You are barely sentient.
There are no words for folks like you. To be raised by parents who hate and to pass that hate onto your children is truly remarkable. And that basically says everything about you. Satan will welcome you with open arms.
Stop with the Trumpist tropes. We all know about that article from last winter, and that there have been numerous studies of mask and covid19 that clearly demonstrate that masks most definitely work against this virus.
Keep up or go home.
You’re not very bright. That’s the tweet.
Masks do help to slow and prevent the spread of COVID
Masks don’t work against stupid.
Not only stupid but dangerous.
No wonder Missouri’s fucked.
Are you able to present empirical data to support that statement? If not, you are being reckless and irresponsible. Missouri deserves better.
Yes they do asshole
You don’t read much do you.
Fuckin clown show. Liberty education baby!
Found the liberty grad easily.
Goddamn do they feed you lead paint chips there or what?
You are proof nothing works against stupidity.
What? Are you stupid?!!!
Your stupidity is dangerous. That’s incredible really. To be so stupid that you’re a danger to the community. Pathetic
Justin…you’re easily be dumber than a bag of hammers. I swear the next time you park your stupid jeep in front of my house im going to get it towed. You are a sycophant and complete idiot endangering lives of your constituents.
There’s another story in there, don’t you think?
Damn you are dumb
You are as dumb as a rock. Is the earth flat in your world, too
My physician wife would strongly disagree with you. You absolute fucking MORON!! Come to the covid unit of the ICU without a mask. DM me for my number and I’ll hook you up. Seriously.
What are you, 12? Oppositional defiance? Grow up. Wear a damn mask.
You are an idiot. I could have sarcasm about it, but you are just an idiot, plain and simple.
You really must be some kind of stupid! Why don’t you volunteer in a COVID unit for 24 hrs and prove it!!
Senator Roy Blunt @RoyBlunt
This is a close election. There was no blue wave. There weren’t huge losses for Republican candidates. If there is a mandate, the mandate is for both sides to work together.
[….] 12:00 PM · Nov 8, 2020
Or, a true believer. Or both.
Some of the responses:
Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri: “The president wasn’t defeated by huge numbers, in fact he may not have been defeated at all.”
Blatant lying or completely delusional?
Both sides to work together, you say? BOTH sides? So when Mitch starts stonewalling literally every bill and refusing to even hold debates, you’re gonna go to him and say “hey, both sides need to work together?”
Yeah, I thought not. Nice try.
“I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee that says, ‘Fool me once, shame on…shame on you. Fool me…You can’t get fooled again.'”
Define close for me Roy. And both sides cannot work together when one side is a threat to our democracy.
..kinda like you have been so graciously working together with your opponents recently?
Roy, for the sake of the people, I hope both sides do work together, but it’s going to be hard to forget your hypocrisy in all of this.
The GOP hasn’t “worked” or “compromised” with their opponents for almost a decade
Our infrastructure is collapsing, the world is melting, and you want to pretend to be moderate
I’m not buying it
We’re from the SHOW-ME state
and repubs have shown us
their true nature
You lie, whereas the numbers don’t.
That’s not how Republicans have governed for the past four years, Roy. When you have a majority, you force your will on others. When the other side wins, you ask for compromise.
Why am I am not surprised with this BS from Roy? Dude, we’ve watched what you’ve done for the last four years. No where in your oath did you pledge allegiance to party and POTUS. You prostrated yourself at the feet of a mentally unfit toddler. We won’t forget. Justice is coming.
Time to start “working together”
It was your party that got us to 250,000 dead.
I can’t even believe I have to type that.
Biden Won. Face Reality.
Also this is much less close than the 2016 election and conservatives said Trump had a mandate from the people.
Math is hard.
Let me guess, first thing is getting that wasteful spending and deficit under control, right?
Hypocrite. Blunt said. “The president wasn’t defeated by huge numbers. In fact, he may not have been defeated at all.”
Where was this idea the past four years?
Biden will win the popular vote by more than any Republican has since 1988. If Democrats don’t have a mandate then the Republicans never have.
Shame on you. You had four years to try that, but nope.
Yea let’s work together. So when’s your next public town hall in STL?
The media do not get to determine who the president is. The people do. When all lawful votes have been counted, recounts finished, and allegations of fraud addressed, we will know who the winner is 12:01 PM · Nov 7, 2020
You in Missouri, dude? Just asking.
Some of the responses:
And when that’s all over, Joe Biden will be your president.
Yes, and that will be @JoeBiden
The allegations of fraud are baseless, and your amplification of them is disgraceful.
I’ve said this before, but @YaleLawSch schools consider rescinding your degree. A competent attny would understand that without evidence, allegations are nonsense.
“…Now I know he went to Yale, I think, or Harvard, one of those, one of those fancy ones…”
Yep, voters decide. And they have. They voted overwhelmingly for Biden
No kidding. But even ppl in the media know how to do math. There’s not enough ballots for Trump to catch up. Biden’s lead in Penn is large enough compared to the remaining ballots to preliminarily call the race. We need better education in Mo. every our senators struggle.
He slept through those classes.
We don’t really care whether you accept the results of this election or not. Talk to your therapist about it.
Is this the first election you have paid attention to? Since you are an elected official I assume you are aware, projected winners are always called. With a current lead of over 4 million popular votes, it appears the people have spoken. but yeah, let’s wait.
Wait, I thought you wanted to stop counting votes?
Go home, male Karen
Bullshit allegations of fraud don’t matter. And the people have already spoken.
And it will be Biden. And damn you for trying to undermine the legitimate voting process.
Also, for a Constitutional Professor, you don’t seem to know much about that.
Sure, do a recount. Republican legislators in PA refused to allow mail-in ballots be pre-counted because they wanted the process to take days in order to support unwarranted allegations of fraud. Your party can game and lie all they want, the votes will tell the truth.
You never fail to embarrass us, Josh.
I guess denial is not just a river in Egypt
Is that thing where I get to revel in your conservative tears?
Yes. See below.
Senator, it’s not the media who’s determined who’s President-Elect, it’s MATH.

From the people who brought us the great sellout to #China and the worst trade deals in American history comes the sequel. Lose your job? Shut up and learn to code. Obama economics, and a reminder of what Joe Biden’s economic program would be

Some of the comments:
Seems you didn’t have a problem when ivanka launched her “find something new” campaign in the spring…
Joshua, setting aside your fear mongering and hyperbole, you misspelled “will be.” I think you’re in DC right now – if I Venmo you $50, could you drop off boxes and packing tape at the White House?
Josh you act like and think an old man. Retail was going away before the pandemic. Your contemporaries don’t shop in malls. Retraining programs would be fabulous. Help people transition to new reality
Nice to see Josh still spends all his time at the whine store instead of offering solutions; not sure how tweeting about China is going to help people who work at JC Penney, but problem-solving has never been our thing
The times are changing whether we like it or not. Democrats are addressing that reality; the GOP is in denial.
Well, it’s better than writing letters to the NBA about what players put on their jerseys.
Ivanka said use the pandemic as a chance to get into something new. Jared says people need to “want it” more. These are your people with abstract advice. Learning code is at least concrete. So bitter already and they haven’t even called the race. Unbecoming, Josh. Do some work.
Interesting how trump’s clothing line and campaign gear is made in China and Biden’s campaign gear is made in the US.
Josh, what do you do for a living??
He *pretends* to understand technology.
Cool. Maybe come to St Louis and tell us your plan?
C’mon Josh. That’s a REALLY simplistic take on what was said. Workers need to train for emerging industries not dying ones. Would you encourage your kids to train in typewriter repair?
Right? Thanks for being awesome and passing a COVID relief bill for your constituents before going on recess again.
Why is it controversial for someone in retail, especially the young, to continue their education and training? Why are Republicans against education and the American dream of working for a better life? Isn’t that the Republican bootstrap theory?
Wasn’t this Ivanka’s strategy too? So which one is CURRENTLY a part of the administration? Ivanka or Rahm?
And on and on.
My favorite response:
Lindsey Simmons @LynzforCongress
Interesting. Missouri Senator opposes helping people out of work find a new career path.
China has nothing to do with the death of retail. Josh is trying out themes for 2024. He will spend the next several years doing this.
Should us mere citizens keep waiting for the trickle down from the elite to happen? Reagan, both bushes and trump used this tired method to help the wealthy. Regular citizens should be happy with a few extra bucks right? #hypocritehawley

One counting judge, closely observed by the other counting judge, shall take the ballots out of the ballot box one at a time and, holding each ballot in such a way that the other counting judge may read it, shall read the name of each candidate properly voted for and the office sought by each. As each vote is called out, the recording judges shall each record the vote on a tally sheet. The votes for and against all questions shall likewise be read and recorded. If more than one political subdivision or special district is holding an election on the same day at the same polling place and using separate ballots, the counting judges may separate the ballots of each political subdivision and special district and first read one set, then the next and so on until all proper votes have been counted.
3. After the recording of all proper votes, the recording judges shall compare their tallies. When the recording judges agree on the count, they shall sign both of the tally sheets, and one of the recording judges shall announce in a loud voice the total number of votes for each candidate and for and against each question.
4. After the announcement of the vote, the election judges shall record the vote totals in the appropriate places on each statement of returns. If any tally sheet or statement of returns contains no heading for any question, the election judges shall write the necessary headings on the tally sheet or statement of returns.
RSMo §115.105. Challengers, how selected, qualifications — challenges, when made — challengers may collect certain information at presidential primary elections — challenges, how made. — 1. The chair of the county committee of each political party named on the ballot shall have the right to designate a challenger for each polling place, who may be present until all ballots are cast on the day of election, and a challenger for each location at which absentee ballots are counted, who may be present while the ballots are being prepared for counting and counted. No later than four business days before the election, the chair of each county committee of each political party named on the ballot shall provide signed official designation forms with the names of the designated challengers and substitutes to the local election authority for confirmation of eligibility to serve as a challenger. The local election authority, after verifying the eligibility of each designated and substitute challenger, shall sign off on the official designation forms, unless the challenger is found not to have the qualifications established by subsection 5 of this section. If the election authority determines that a challenger does not meet the qualifications of subsection 5 of this section, the designating party chair may designate a replacement challenger and provide the local election authority with the name of the replacement challenger before 5:00 p.m. of the Monday preceding the election. The designating chair may substitute challengers at his or her discretion during such hours.
2. Challenges may only be made when the challenger believes the election laws of this state have been or will be violated, and each challenger shall report any such belief to the election judges, or to the election authority if not satisfied with the decision of the election judges.
3. Prior to the close of the polls, challengers may list and give out the names of those who have voted. The listing and giving out of names of those who have voted by a challenger shall not be considered giving information tending to show the state of the count.
4. In a presidential primary election, challengers may collect information about the party ballot selected by the voter and may disclose party affiliation information after the polls close.
5. All persons selected as challengers shall have the same qualifications required by section 115.085 for election judges, except that such challenger shall be a registered voter in the jurisdiction of the election authority for which the challenger is designated as a challenger.
6. Any challenge by a challenger to a voter’s identification for validity shall be made only to the election judges or other election authority.

RSMo §115.107. Watchers, how selected, qualifications, duties. — 1. At every election, the chairman of the county committee of each political party named on the ballot shall have the right to designate a watcher for each place votes are counted.
2. Watchers are to observe the counting of the votes and present any complaint of irregularity or law violation to the election judges, or to the election authority if not satisfied with the decision of the election judges. No watcher may be substituted for another on election day.
3. No watcher shall report to anyone the name of any person who has or has not voted.
4. A watcher may remain present until all closing certification forms are completed, all equipment is closed and taken down, the transportation case for the ballots is sealed, election materials are returned to the election authority or to the designated collection place for a polling place, and any other duties or procedures required under sections 115.447 to 115.491 are completed. A watcher may also remain present at each location at which absentee ballots are counted and may remain present while such ballots are being prepared for counting and counted.
5. All persons selected as watchers shall have the same qualifications required by section 115.085 for election judges, except that such watcher shall be a registered voter in the jurisdiction of the election authority for which the watcher is designated as a watcher.
Today from Josh Hawley (r):

The Supreme Court decision on voting in Pennsylvania is a VERY dangerous one. It will allow rampant and unchecked cheating and will undermine our entire systems of laws. It will also induce violence in the streets. Something must be done!
