Yesterday evening, from the guy who is apparently afraid to hold a beer:
Eric Schmitt @Eric_Schmitt
US Senate candidate, MO
While my opponent The Heiress Valentine is emailing people about the beginning of “Pumpkin Spice Latte” season — I’m here to remind Missourians it’s Busch Light camo can season. Enjoy!
[….] 5:57 PM · Sep 22, 2022
Also last night:
Trudy Busch Valentine @buschvalentine
US Senate candidate, MO
I got to spend tonight in Kansas City at Gaels Public House — an ice cold Busch Light is always better with friends.
I especially want to thank Senator @GregRazer and Derrick Bachman for their hospitality and their warm and gracious welcome. 7:02 PM · Sep 22, 2022
Trudy Busch Valentine @buschvalentine
US Senate candidate, MO
If you want to save me the seat that’s fine, better than you voting to sell it off to China like it’s 150,000 acres of Missouri farmland.
[….] 11:59 AM · Sep 22, 2022
AND you helped Missourians die of COVID by fighting
public health orders.
BTW, Where do you stand on democracy and the rule of law?
Exactly what is this supposed to be in reference to? New @GOP Hail Mary cause y’all are losing?
Do you even give a Schmitt for the over 25,000 MO residents who have died from Covid?
As of yesterday, the official count of Missourians dead from #covid19 is 21,514. I respect you for fighting for Freedom, but you may have been wrong. Who knows how much worse it would have been, if we hadn’t masked, or vaxed? People are still dying today. How about next time?
You have a strange concept of freedom. How much freedom does a person have when they’re confined to a hospital bed with covid? Hooked up to a ventilator? Buried six feet under? Disabled because of long covid?
This guy immediately turned women into 2nd class citizens in MO when Roe was overturned. The government has control over your body not you. If you put him in the senate his views will go nationwide. Women deserve respect and this guy is just not it. He already showed you.
Why do maga cult candidates like you always espouse false narratives?
Fauci isn’t against freedom, he’s an expert professional who was trying to save lives
And you got in the way of saving lives!
The sick thing is that people died needlessly because of the political game you wanted to play. And they were your voters, but you’re so confident that you’ll win, you figured you had voters to spare. Disgusting.
You’ve never been right, quit lying
You fought against the will of the people & did what your donors told you to do
Freedom from science. Eric can only say this because he actively fought documenting the impact of Covid in MO.
No. You weren’t about anything.
No. You were political.
And people died because of it. Can’t believe you’re proud of this statement.
I’m confused. You’re a hillbilly from Bridgeton with a GED. Fauci is an expert infectious disease medical professional. How did you win??? [….]
Every step of the way you fought against the common sense of local parents and school boards
and you were wrong.
People died because of people like you in positions of power and influence who spread false information. May you be granted Grace when your ambitions allow.
You sued China for hoarding masks and keeping them from Missourians, then you sued Missouri schools for requiring masks to protect our students.
You fought for COVID. You fought for Trump. You fought for @GOP propaganda.
You never fought for freedom.
Ah anti-intellectualism. Lies are the MAGA Trumpster’s battlecry.
How many Missourians died because of your “freedom”. It’s sick that you are proud of it.
The dead Missourians can’t share their side.
Schmitt is too extreme for Missouri. 21,500 dead Missourians aren’t free, they’re dead.
It’s exactly what quack would do, fight against Science.
There are thousands of Missourians who would disagree with you if they weren’t dead.
You’re truly a moron.
Nah, you’re a political hack. Just doing stuff to engage your psycho base and scare ppl, you didn’t do anything to help, you fought and wasted our money to actively make stuff worse. Resign idiot.
Yep, that was definitely a colossal waste of time and money.
The more you run your mouth and talk down to people, the more uplifting it becomes for your opponent. You are just a jealous man without a platform. You are what isn’t happening @Eric_Schmitt.
King Rex Sinquefield
You lie and grift for living off of the backs of hard working people.
The typical gop politician today.
That’s what you’re doing with dark money
Eric Schmitt is an extremist who want to make our medical decisions. Medical decisions should be made with a doctor not a Senator.
Vote for Trudy Busch Valentine!
For those of us concerned about the appalling amount of $$$ swirling around politics it’s aggravating that you’re running as this horrible divisive tool. No reasonable voter wants that. You could win just posting pics of your family & pork steaks. But instead, cruelty. No thanks.
I’d rather she buy it than you.
I found it very radical when you brought that nonsense lawsuit against my kids’ school. You want to demagogue your way into the Senate. I agreed with Trump that you were a worse option than Greitens for the nomination.
She talks about healthcare for women and working for Missouri. You talk about dismantling the government and being on a holy quest. Also you signed in the trigger ban that stripped women of their rights after Roe was overturned. Who is the radical one again?
Private school boy Eric who lives in an $800,000 home is funded by Rex & hangs with a grifter [….]
Eric you are an absolutely horrible AG! I sincerely hope you lose! GFY
I remember that time well.
My friends and neighbors were making small but important personal sacrifices for each other’s welfare.
And you were screaming “you can’t make me!”
I don’t vote for toddlers.
You have nothing to be proud of, you fought against parents, kids, & common sense. “Shame” that is the word for what you are feeling, it is the opposite of pride.
You have never lived under nor suffered real tyranny, though you try to invoke it over others. #JustMoreBullSchmitt
So explain to us how your logic works here Eric, because it doesn’t track in the real world where the rest of us are. @buschvalentine was not in office at the time of TFG’s lockdowns, but you were. You sued public schools while purposely omitting private schools. Why is that?
You’re part of the reason why one million Americans have died from COVID, when we could have saved hundreds of thousands of lives.
My friend was one of those you helped kill. Go to hell.
COVID tyranny is funny way of saying “public health.”
I will support @buschvalentine all day and every day.
So many propaganda buzzwords in here!
You missed “woke” and “cancel culture,” though.
If you hit all six in one tweet, you earn a free swastika tattoo.
Eric Schmitt: making frivolous lawsuits great again
Does your disinformation campaign ever get old for you? It does for us [….]
You sued elementary schools to prevent kids from wearing masks, even as students were either dying from COVID, or getting long-covid symptoms. Not gonna elect a guy who sues kindergartners
Do… Do you mean public health?
Unlike you, she may actually care about the health of Missourians.
Yet you didn’t sue your children’s private school.
Do you know who the winner in the fight against “Covid tyranny” is? Death. And crippling illness. And grief. And loss. You are a ghoul.
7th highest Covid deaths per capita in the country, and that is for numbers actually reported. Some would argue your fight against public health was a failure. Not to mention the divisive politicization of a health emergency.
Lockdown Queen? What the f are you even talking about? You are the Wasteful Losing Lawsuit King
Do you know how many people I know that have died because of Covid-19? Too freaking many! I blame you and the other MAGA Republican fascists for those deaths! Are you going to waste Missouri taxpayer money to sue me for saying the truth?
So you wish more people had died from COVID19? Almost 22,000 Missourians dead wasn’t enough for you?
A waitress working double shifts had to pay for Republican’s wealthy donors’ tax breaks.
donald trump’s America:
Republicans taking PPP money and having their loans forgiven at the expense of the American taxpayer.
I mean… first off, you’re wrong about how this all works (which is scary considering you want to represent us in Congress) and even if you were right…
I’d rather do that than pay Missouri taxes for you to fritter away propping up your campaign with frivolous vanity lawsuits.
My taxes pay for the fire department that put out my neighbors house fire, I’m grateful; my taxes pay for the upkeep on widening our local roads and paving them, I’m grateful. You waste our tax dollars suing public schools while intentionally avoiding private schools, I’m pissed!
Better paying the professor than your frivolous lawsuits
If you gave a damn about the waitress you’d vote to raise the minimum wage to $15 and support her right to join a union. You’d guarantee affordable healthcare, child care and higher ed so she could enroll in the professor’s class and still afford basic necessities.
Now there you messed up Eric. See I was the kid working doubles to pay for college & afterwards paying down my student loans. If someone today gets a little farther ahead because of this great! Working folks aren’t against working folks, we’re against millionaire bigots like you!
Who knows? The waitress could be working double shifts to pay off student loans. Why should she have to work double shifts? The wages are too low. Also, why should she pay more in taxes when the donor class are receiving $2 trillion in tax breaks?
I don’t get your point.
Eric would rather have Chloe Kardashian get the $$ instead of the working class
The waitress working double shifts already bailed out GM, Chrysler, Citigroup, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, AIG, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, etc. Corporate welfare is fine with you but helping the 40% of student loan holders who didn’t even graduate you’re against?
Or maybe…that waitress is working double shifts to pay off her student loans in order to make a better life for herself. Did that cross your mind?
Donald Trump’s America:
A waitress working double shifts now has to pay for the salaries of giant corporation executives.
We also pay your salary and that irks me greatly. You’re also not telling the truth, but we already know that about you.
Curious that you omit the fact that the waitress is working double shifts because she is not paid a living wage or we’re still suffering from TFG’s botched idea of a tax plan for the middle class [….]
How about what she had to kick in for for your frivolous lawsuits?
Lemme tell ya something.
I returned to school to be a teacher- and have tons of loans b/c of it. My 1st teaching job pd less than bartending F/T. And get this! Teacher pay is so low I had to CONTINUE bartending 2xs a wk for 10 yrs while teaching full time. TO PAY MY LOANS.
Says the guy who used our tax dollars to sue China for COVID and hoarding “life saving masks,” and then sued our school districts for having mask mandates.
Eric Schmitt’s Missouri. A waitress working double shifts has to pay TWICE for Eric Schmitt’s frivolous lawsuits: once for the AG’s office legal fees, and a second time for the legal fees of the school districts and local governments who have to defend against the suits.
Tax payers aren’t paying for this.
Most people affected have already paid tens of thousands in just interest payments toward their loans, the rest will still have years worth of interest to finish paying off.
Oh, and it’s likely the waitress was one who got that forgiveness.
What have you done to raise wages so that waitress doesn’t have to work double shifts?
A tenured college professor has already paid off their loans Eric. The waitress probably has student loans and no degree!
What’s yr policy for improving constituents lives. More frivolous lawsuits? Big Corp trickle drown?
CAFA farms for china? Yr state salary wasnt enuff?
Salus populi suprema lex esto.
Remember that you wanted to end the ACA and guarantee that waitress would never have health insurance.
No, her tax rates aren’t going up one cent. The real crime is that Billionaires got a tax cut under Trump, they should be paying more.
87% of debt cancellation benefits people who make less than $75k per year. The other 13% who will benefit make less than $125k per year.
Your party voted for a $1.9 trillion dollar tax cut for billionaires and corporations in 2017. Shut up.
So…. You’re not bothered by teachers being paid horrible wages or a waitress having ti work double shifts to make ends meet.
Just someone other than Rich people getting tax dollars???
Republican America: A waitress cannot have bodily autonomy and pays for tax breaks for the wealthy, PPP loan forgiveness and farmer subsides. She likely has student debt and is excited to not be anchored down to them anymore.
What did you do sir during your time in the Missouri legislature? Did you make sure Missouri Universities were funded to keep tuition low? Did you support higher minimum wages so students could help pay for school? As AG did you protect students from predatory loan servers?
But Republicans like Eric are just fine with that same waitress working double shifts to pay for forgiving PPP loan debt, or more tax cuts for corporations.
Lol. You are so embarrassing.
… just like the tenured professor had to pay for the double shift waitress’ public education. Unbelievable [….]
I was a single mother waitress working double shifts to try to avoid the unavoidable loans that are crippling and now I owe more than I took out despite 15+ years working in public service and years of $600 payments. Would love to explain how life works to you sometime
A retired teacher in MO has to pay for tax cuts for billionaires. Unreal.
Kind of like how my taxes pay the salaries of politicians who were okay with Trump trying to overthrow democracy. That’s how taxes work.
I imagine it must be fun to have no real plan, no real clue, no sense of empathy, and to just go through life #makingschmittup
As if you care about working people…
What makes you think that waitress doesn’t have student loans and is working double shifts to try to pay them off. My husband worked in restaurant for decades and he and many of his co-workers had college degrees, Mr. Man of the People.
that tenured professor just might be paying more federal taxes than that waitress and that waitress might be benefiting from some the professor’s tax dollars too. crazy how that works.
Eric, I’m sorry college didn’t work out for you. I can’t wait to save that money though and invest it into Chinese stocks.
OR , Joe Biden’s America:
A waitress working double shifts now has her student loans paid for.
Win for America
Lazy and vapid, even by your standards.
And that waitress working double shifts might actually have student loans but didn’t finish school. And that waitress working double shifts has to pay to make up for the taxes the richest 1% don’t pay.
Missourians have to pay for our Attorney General’s political stunt lawsuits, which are just taxpayer-funded ads for his U.S. Senate campaign.
Unethical, but definitely very real.
But you didn’t care about the Trump tax cuts and corporate bailouts now, did ya?
Shut up, you fascist traitor.
No, they are paying the PPP loans for your rich buddies
If you actually cared about that waitress working a double shift, you’d vote to increase the minimum wage.
Only an elitist like you would assume the waitress didn’t have any student debt.
Is this your whole campaign strategy? Take queues from the media environment and stand for nothing?
Yes. This has been another edition of Short answers to simple questions.
My niece is a waitress. She has a BA and $24k in student loans and was a Pell grant recipient. She’s saving up to get her MA and become a teacher. Forgiveness of that $20k is life-changing for her. There are millions of others in similar positions.
Why do you hate education and educators SO MUCH? This tweet insinuates that professors are wealthy elites sponging off of the working class. Your transparent desire to villainize educators is sickening, especially since you benefitted from a good deal of high-quality education.
And you want to keep her pay low.
Waitresses go to college, you classist bozo.
Tell us all your twelce years old, without telling us your age.

So instead of commenting on the bill’s content, indicating areas you believe have issues, and offering critiques of specific texts, we get Spongebob Squarepants typing from you.
How is this supposed to convince us you are Senate material Eric? [….]
So you’re showing what how an adult should not act who’s running for the Senate? Well, good job.
Otherwise, you’re post is that of an eight year old who needs to be scolded. Hopefully @buschvalentine is taking notes of examples of your poor behavior to use in her advertising.
As a “leader”, how are we supposed to take you seriously when you write like that? What is this even supposed to mean?
I guess Eric figures if he becomes a Senator he can buy safety for a couple generations of Schmitts before the mass extinction event.
To be fair, he’s not that forward thinking.
Look around, Eric. Record heat, drought, predictions for continued extreme weather. Yes, we should do something about it, and help the economy along the way.
Look people! @Eric_Schmitt doesn’t know how to use the caps key. He is still in 8th grade
Climate change is completely real Eric. Scientists have been saying it for years. We approaching the point where it will be too late. What will you tell your grandchildren? “Sorry about fucking the planet, I just needed more money.”
Good grief. You are the AG of the state of MO. You are asking us to make you a Senator of the United States. Tweets like this are beneath the dignity of either office and you should be ashamed of yourself. Being a public servant is SERIOUS. Start acting like you understand that.
And mocking the urgency of the very real and now very obvious climate crisis just makes you a horrible human being.
Ahh, the classic Lincoln Douglas debate tactic of silly capitalizations….
So, you’re anti legislation that helps Americans and you’re anti science. Typical look for a Missouri magat politician. Dumb.
So you think historic drought for Missouri Farmers is funny?
