But do you know what Fox News hosts say about you behind your back?
*friendly venues only
You challenged him? LOL Dude, have you listened to yourself interview? It’s pathetic. You asked him questions. There was no challenging going on. At the end, he asked you if you could start the interview. He didn’t even take you seriously.
You love running out of the Capitol too don’t you?
We bet you do, anything besides doing actual work.
I love Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. #Resign #Jan6thInsurrection
I bet you get tough questions on Fox News. How did you handle it Josh? We’re so impressed.
Failure happens when you allow lobbyists to make the regulations.
Failure happens when you sell Missouri out…
You’re a failure you never did your job in Missouri.
Everyone in my bank was awake today. Should I be concerned?
It is not a word to be used in every situation.
Hypocrisy is alive and thriving in your MAGA world.
Republicans come up with slogans but never offer solutions!
Oh honey get some new words —
I’m seeking original thoughts. So far all I see from you is nazi propaganda
Eric thinks every time he types “woke” he gets a peanut.
We are all tired of hearing you and the GOP use the word woke. You don’t even know what it means when you use it. If woke is educated, informed, considerate of others and our environment then count me in as being proudly woke.
I’m embarrassed for you.
I’ll do it for you: EVERY SINGLE THING THE GOP DISAGREES WITH OR DOESNT LIKE IS NOW CALLED WOKE.
Lazy but authentic frontier gibberish.
What does this even mean?
He doesn’t know either.
You’re such a schmuck. Do you ever have anything useful to add to the conversation??
No. This has been another edition of Short Answers to Simple Questions.
Too busy Shit Tweeting to Work.
What the actual fuck do you mean?
Other than making lame ass statements such as “too woke to fail” what are your plans and policies to help the American people?
First rule when you’re full of MAGA bull shit is throw the word “woke” in every sentence
Youre an abject imbecile. Had nothing to do with wokeness. Has everything to do with your orange diety and you nazis screwing the economy. China Eric.
How did dip shits like this guy get elected? Worthless. Just spout buzz words without having any clue what they mean but hoping his voters won’t realize just how stupid he is.
And Sen. Karen McRunnypants, who helped create both catastrophes, of course, would run away from both.
You don’t even live in the state you are an elected senator. What hypocrisy.
Josh rarely leaves his comfort zone
How’s the weather in Virgina?
Doubt that he will visit the bank..
The bank situation is the greater threat to the country.
Josh, shut up. Seriously your lame retorts are just that…lame. keep runnin buddy
Don’t you have work to do for our country? Please do something for your constituents other than spending time tweeting judgement. Do something which makes me feel good about my tax dollars paying for your amazing healthcare and other benefits. Jesus.
Hmm train regulations rolled back, bank regulations rolled back. Wonder who did that?!
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
Is this the part where Republicans pretend like they didn’t roll back Dodd-Frank provisions for smaller banks like SVB, and their supporters didn’t cause the run on SVB? The cycle of Democrats cleaning up Republican messes continues.
Both are disasters caused by reckless dismantling of regulations by you and your ilk.
Any legislation planned? Didn’t think so.
How many times have you been there? How many times have you visited the border? Has being photographed standing in either place solved anything?
Havent seen you at either place. Such concern.
Maybe worry more about doing a good job for the people of Missouri and spend less time being a mouthpiece for the party line.
Virginia. Ohio, last April.
Where are you running off to, today, Hawley?
Still running away from tourists?
#treasonweasel let the Ohio electeds worry about Ohio; why don’t you run on back here and listen to YOUR constituents? We’ve got things to say to you.
Will you visit Missouri anytime soon like ever. I live in the state that somehow elected a Virginian to represent Missouri. Tip of the cap to you for getting over on the rubes.
Risky and Reckless.
Republicans deregulated both industries and now pretend to complain when bad stuff happens
Josh Hawley will probably hold a town hall in Virg….. wait what state do you pretend to live in? Oh Missouri.
Trump visited to cause chaos and get attention.
How did that help?
He’s already forgotten his visit, along with the names of his wives and kids.
What do you want him to do? Pass out expired food and water? Sign Biden hats? Buy McDonald’s?
Btw trump never visited a single train derailment in 4 years. Neither did his transportation secretary.
But do tell me how Trump’s rollbacks on trains and banks have left us.
Where are you from, MO? Keep your nose in your own state. [….]
Maybe Trump should visit SVB, and explain how wonderful it was that he rolled back Dodd-Frank?
Yesterday, from Mark Alford (r), privileged traveler:
Mark Alford @markalfordkc
Thanks Mayor Pete!!! Sitting on SW flight at KCI. Was supposed to leave at 2, then 4, then 6, then 9pm, now back to 4! Turns out shortages at the air traffic control in Florida is causing unwarranted confusion. The Captain is now late because HE didn’t even know what time to be here. The “Peter Principal” is alive and well!!! @SouthwestAir @PeteButtigieg

A single exclamation mark will do, Mark (r).
The International Air Transportation Association (IATA) lists MCI as the airport’s designator code. But, you already knew that, didn’t you?
Some of the responses:
what a lazy and weak politician.
sees problems and points fingers instead of looking for solutions.
Mark Alford (r) responds in turn:
Mark Alford @markalfordkc
Here’s the solution: Fire Mayor Pete and get a new Secretary of transportation 4:55 PM · Mar 12, 2023
He’s stupid and he’s twelve years old. That’ll work in the republican House majority.
how about practical solutions Representative Alford?
your elected position doesn’t involve appointing DOT exec, but you ARE empowered to legislate.
what legislative solutions are available Representative Alford?
That makes it better how?
Will the next one have the budget to hire and train more controllers? But new equipment?
Maybe since the ATC shortage is in FL, we fire DeSantis? That makes as much sense as firing the Transportation Secretary who does not personally hire Air Traffic Controllers either. [….]
That may give you an orgasm but it won’t solve the controller problems.
What a lame response! Just shows your lack of depth.
Nope. Not a solution. That’s finger-pointing for clicks and likes. Disappointed (but not surprised) you don’t know the difference. And btw, if you understand the difference but post anyway, that doesn’t make you clever.
It just makes him a stupid and petulant twelve-year-old.
How about you bought GQPers stop deregulation.
So just tear down what you don’t like…. Got it. That’s good leadership.
What have you done that’s constructive? Nothing.
How will that fix your delay?
Because flight delays are a new thing?? LOL you’re a joke.
Cabinet Secretaries are in charge of staffing? Perhaps all the Florida politicians are responsible? Odd that GOP lawmakers can’t be taken seriously. All theater, no governing.
Maybe when you get back to DC, you could go into your office and respond to the many emails, letters, phone calls and other inquiries that have been sent from your constituents in the 4th district of Missouri. You are failing to respond to your constituents!
I live in your district and yet haven’t seen anything you have done besides follow along with no direction. Where is better health care your party has promised? Why are you all against everybody paying social security on all there income like I had all the years I worked.
You are an ass. Shut up.
You have the emotional intelligence of a fucking 5-year-old.
I figured a twelve-year-old, but okay.
Man, no reason to think Southwest could have played any role in this based on our evidence…100% some politician’s fault. gotta be.
if you think southwest is giving you the full story, you’re somehow dumber than your twitter profile makes you look.
Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner.
You’re sure a disappointment! And I didn’t expect much.
Florida? Isn’t this a DeSantis problem then?
Could someone bring Mark his coffee?
You’re just as whiny and negative as you were on the local news. What an embarrassment you are to Missouri.
And your background is . . . reading the news [….]
What is it with short men and chips on their shoulders? You left being an eye-rolling performative morning news presenter to be a useless performative politician.
Exactly what did Mayor Pete do to cause this problem?
You are a literal joke. It doesn’t take any type of skill to simply repeat the same tired talking points as every other GOP politician.
Of course you spent your life reading off a teleprompter so why am I surprised.
MAGA is just about bitching and whining. Nothing more, nothing less. Snowflakes with no solutions
Jhc, stop your whining & bitching. I’d be more concerned that your Captain doesn’t know when to be at work, that’s the airlines fault.
So the pilot not checking is scheduled is the Secretary of transportation’s fault? Are you really that stupid? Does it hurt being that stupid?
Are you part of the problem, the solution, or just a total dumb ass? I think we all know. Even the few that liked you on tv.
Is it that some action, or inaction by Buttigieg/DOT is responsible in any way shape or form for this particular flight delay? OR is it that maybe, just maybe, Southwest is just a bad airline which is constantly plagued by delays? You’re such an infantile pillock.
Mark, I really appreciate you making more people aware of just how much of an asshole you are. Propose a solution, dipshit.
RNC Research – that’s an oxymoron if we’ve ever heard one.
Some of the responses:
The GOP is a cult.
People sell their souls for a few extra bucks.
Is this why you were elected?
No, but it is a symptom.
Climate denier- asleep, bloated, mediocre male tries to be relevant so Orange Julius will notice him
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
Election Denial is a cult.
Climate alarmism is science. Climate alarmism is caring for God’s creation. Climate alarmism is caring for the poor. Climate alarmism is the only sane response to the truth we must face. #ActOnClimate #ClimateAction #ClimateActionNow #ClimateEmergency
Tell me you’re in the pocket of big oil companies without telling me you’re in the pocket of big oil companies. [….]
Says a member of the Trump cult.
Did you fail all of your science classes?
So many questions.
Says the guy who sold Missouri farms to the Chinese
Climate denial is even worse.
Bless your heart.
Climate Change Denial should be labeled as Paid Programming.
You’re an embarrassment to the state of Missouri.
You Sir, are tragically misinformed.
He probably knows better, he just doesn’t care.
No, it is science. A lot of citizens still believe in science. I wish you did.
This is not going to age well, Senator
It’s not “alarmism” if it’s happening, DS.
Yeah sure, scientific facts and current extreme weather are just not a problem.
You’re right Eric, I trust you over the worlds leading scientists on this subject… [….]
It’s the cultists who cannot differentiate science from the occult.
Climate denialism is a cult .. FIXED IT
Denying what is happening to our climate, especially by an elected official, who is supposed to be working towards the good of the people, should be a crime. #GOPCorruptionOverCountry
Climate change deniers are ignorant and dangerous
Says a science denying fascist cult guy.
Go look at independent research and analysis by insurance companies. You will find they have determined climate change is real and getting worse.
Cool. So does that mean red states will stop crawling to the feds to bail them out after extreme weather events?
Climate change denying is a cult
MAGA is a genuine cult. A fascist one!
Like the projection here lol
Not really, there is loads of proof. You’re just a loser hack.
You could just say “I am anti-Science” and be done with it.
Nope – climate alarmism is based on science – have you heard about that?
Interesting how you hate anything that will make the world a better place.
The tRump cult you’re in is deadly
You would know what being in a cult is like
What a surprise a Republican would say that. Republicans lie about everything. Move on.
Yes we should believe thought leaders like you instead 🤡🤡🤡
Consider the source.
Unbelievable that you would feel that way given all the scientific evidence we now have plus what’s happening right in front of us. Are you blind?
No, sir, he’s a republican.
All of science is a cult, really. Right? Not like it’s ever produced anything useful.
RNC Research-an oxymoron if ever heard one.
Meanwhile your cult is flipping out over drag queens, cat boxes and books.
Actually, a cult would be a subset of the electorate that storms a nation’s capital and attempts to overthrow the government.
YOU are in a cult, skippy.
Everything about you bums me out. You are such a tool.
Ignoring climate change is short sighted and foolish, there is no Planet B.
There is no Planet B.
Aren’t you the Eric Schmitt that voted twice to sell land to the Chinese? Didn’t you once help over ride a veto to force the Governor to be able to do that? How’s that kind of thinking working out for you now that you’re in DC? Are you in a cult?
More science deniers, never underestimate the power of stupidity!
Climate Change Denialism is a cult. We’re already paying tens of billions per year because of it. Look beyond your radical right bubble to what’s going on globally in crop loss, mass migration.

OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON SAPA DECISION:
As the sponsor of the Second Amendment Preservation Act, I am disappointed but not surprised by the decision from an Obama-appointed, district court judge to unilaterally strike down a pro-Second Amendment law. (1/3)
The State of Missouri, not a federal judge, should determine how it spends its resources. That’s what SAPA does. I fully support Attorney General Bailey’s announcement to appeal this decision. (2/3)
I will continue to fight to protect Americans’ constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, just like I did in the Missouri State Legislature. (3/3)

WASHINGTON, March 7 (Reuters) – A Missouri state law that declared several federal gun laws “invalid” is unconstitutional, a U.S. federal judge ruled on Tuesday, handing the U.S. Justice Department a victory in its bid to get the law tossed out.
At issue was a measure Republican Governor Mike Parson signed into law in 2021 that declared that certain federal gun laws infringed on the rights of individuals to keep and bear arms under the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment.
U.S. District Judge Brian Wimes in Jefferson City, Missouri, said the state’s Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA) violates the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, which holds that federal laws take priority over conflicting state laws.
