The mental gymnastics the media and the left are going through to ignore the Biden classified docs while simultaneously crucifying Trump is just one more example of the absurd double standards that exist today. 5:20 PM · Jan 12, 2023
You haven’t been watching/listening to the news. BTW, do YOU condemn Trump’s handling of classified documents as you have Biden’s? Be fair, Congressman.
With an I.Q. as high as yours, The mental gymnastics you must go through just to tie you shoes…
-Wait, what… They’re Velcro!?
>The mental gymnastics you must go through just to put on your shoes must be tiring

It’s disgusting how the Obama and now Biden administration have weaponized our judicial system against Trump. They investigated him and put him through hell over the bogus Steele Dossier, and now they do THIS. This swamp must be drained. These are the actions of a banana republic 5:27 AM · Aug 9, 2022
Some of the response back then:
What’s disgusting is a lawless President who escapes accountability again and again because of his money, power, and propaganda, and folks like you defending him.
You still a Trump Republican now Eric? Tik tok.
Still is, evidently.
Local man running for Congress can’t think of anything to say.
Huh? The bits of your tweet that I can make any sense of are, in fact, untrue. Obama & Biden had nothing to do w the TON of evidence of Russian collusion in 2016 that had nothing to do w the preliminary notes that made up the “Steele Dossier.” Couldn’t you squeeze Hunter in here?
Yeah. I agree. It’s really weird how the legal system is so hard on criming criminals who commit crimes. And as far as the Steele dossier goes, you do know Manafort is telling everyone and the bartender that he was giving info to a Russian agent to “settle his debts”, right?
Someone who doesn’t know what “banana republic” means shouldn’t be running for office.
Please open a history book sometime.
WHAT? Trump? The person that planned an insurrection because he LOST an election!
No problem if mob HUNG his VP! Incited violence & trashing Capitol!
Took & kept top secret documents illegally!
Wow. You are off course. Trump is a CRIMINAL.
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…

Biden TOOK CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS from the White House and they were found at a BIDEN think tank.
What were in those documents? Will the FBI raid his home? 10:52 AM · Jan 10, 2023
Individuals in the responses get it:
It’s so depressing that you represent me in congress……
You’re smarter and better than this, Eric. I know you are. I’m sure this won’t be the only time I will have to say this.
Assumes a fact not in evidence.
Cool to see you suddenly caring about classified documents, though. Does being this big of a hypocrite bring you any shame or embarrassment? Serious question.
wow! I knew you went full dishonesty shill mode but this is a new low. You know who turned in the documents? Biden’s people! You know who was looking for it? No one.
No need to raid his home — he quickly and willingly returned them, much unlike the former president
Now, let’s play “Spot the Difference” and I bet you could apply critical thinking to this situation instead of intentionally misleading your followers for “political points.” You’re responsible for removing nuance from conversations and I am not impressed. Leaders should lead.
There was a song on a children’s television show…
Why would they road his home? He already turned the documents in.
OMG – let me tell ya about Trump
Listen, we here in Missouri already know you’re not that bright, but can you not embarrass us in front of the rest of the country?
Just pretend to pass bills, cash your lobbyist checks, etc. Your re-election is pretty well guaranteed without having to further disgrace Missouri.
It’s being investigated dim wit (by a Trump appointee). If Trump had returned the docs he took when asked, he might not be in the mess he’s in.
Oh look. Eric with the talking points for the intellectually dishonest. What a shocker.

We Will Object
Co-authored By: Rep. Jason Smith (MO-08), Rep. Vicky Hartzler (MO-04), Rep. Sam Graves (MO-06), and Rep. Billy Long (MO-07)
Washington, December 31, 2020
Next week, your 117th United States Congress will convene for the first time. After the election of Speaker and the adoption of the Rules of Congress, the action will quickly move to reading aloud the electoral votes submitted by each state from this past November’s election – counting them, and declaring the vote tally for President and Vice President. During that process, the question will be put before your elected officials – does anyone object to the certification of electoral votes of a state. We will object. Our hope is that others will join us.
We don’t take this decision lightly, but we must protect the integrity of each vote cast by every law-abiding Missourian. For every instance of Georgia failing to follow its own state law in verifying signatures, of Pennsylvania accepting mail ballots after the legal deadline set by its state legislature, or folks from outside Nevada casting a ballot in that state – the value of every Missourians’ vote is diminished. That’s not right. And we cannot simply look the other way.
The right to freely cast your vote in elections is a sacred privilege afforded to us as Americans because of the sacrifices of the patriots who fought for that right. When that process is spoiled and abused by officials not following their own state law, it violates that right and jeopardizes the entire integrity and foundation of ‘free and fair’ elections. In such instances, where voting process changes are made without the consent of the voter, we know it is our duty and our obligation to serve as a backstop to protect the power of one person, one vote – to protect your vote as a Missourian. We must be able to have confidence in not only the agreement and expectation that this election would follow the law, but future ones will as well. We take the responsibility of upholding the Constitution seriously, and that is why we feel compelled to object to the electoral count taking place on January 6th.
The reported results of this past November’s Presidential election don’t even pass the most basic eye test. Republicans were projected to lose seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, we gained more than a dozen. Republicans were supposed to lose control of several state legislatures, we picked up multiple. We were projected to lose control of the United States Senate – we didn’t, and we won’t. All of this occurred on the same night President Trump lost? It’s hard to believe. Combined with the daily reports of voting irregularities where state election laws were discarded and not followed, something doesn’t add up. President Trump won over 74 million votes, Obama – 69 million. President Trump won 2586 counties, Obama – 873 counties, Joe Biden – 527 counties. The numbers, the evidence, and the abnormalities all speak for themselves.
We have joined lawsuits, called for a Special Counsel and demanded accountability and integrity, now we finally get to cast our vote. We have no illusions about the outcome, at the end of the day, this is still Nancy Pelosi’s House. Our only hope is that more will join us – that more will value protecting the vote of every American living in their state as much as we do fighting for yours.
Representative Billy Long (r) [2016 file photo].
Number of court cases? What where the outcomes? Federal cases? How many Trump appointees among the judges and justices?
Counties don’t vote. People do. Morons.
The population of Los Angeles County, California? The population of McPherson County, Nebraska? Should we list more small population counties, or do you get the point?

In 2016: Hillary Clinton, 65,853,514 votes. Donald Trump, 62,984,828 votes.
What this speaks of: Stupid people came up with this. Stupid people wrote this. Stupid people signed on to this. Stupid people believe it.

Buddy of mine went to the Hospital in Springfield with #COVID Stayed 48 hours and just got home. Sent me a picture of himself on oxygen at home with this tag line… “Sent me home. Not dead enough to vote democrat.” 8:58 AM · Dec 1, 2020
That was so hilarious.
Some of the responses:
You’re an absolute embarrassment.
Mr. Long you represent me and my family in the United States House of Representatives, this is an office of high honor, your joke is not funny.
Our friend just lost her dad to Covid last week in a Springfield hospital. How can you represent our area that is seeing such an increase in deaths and make jokes about it? Absolutely disgusting!
One of my neighbors got sick in March with COVId and still cannot work full time.
I bet you think that’s hilarious.
Evidently he does.
It is more distasteful to tweet about death or conspiracy theories? Asking for a friend who cares about moral character and ethical behavior.
3,981 Missourians have died from COVID, but you’ve got jokes.
The voice of the GOP.
I truly sincerely from the bottom of my heart hope that you have a bad day
This is fucking disgusting.
No one is surprised by the company you keep.
This is disgusting. You have no honor.
You think this is somehow funny?
Amazing joke. Now do one about someone suffering from cancer.
hey there Billy, I’m a nurse in your congressional district who is EXHAUSTED, thanks so much for your support and all your hard work on my behalf, I’m gonna go make a donation to planned parenthood in your name as a token of my appreciation
Hahaha yes it’s funny because people are dying and you aren’t doing anything about it. Go kick rocks.
people are dying. you are a horrible person
good god man, wtf is wrong with you
I’m sure all the Missourians who died from COVID-19, Republican or Democrat, will think this is hilarious. You’re the reason we can’t get a damn thing done here because you take nothing seriously.[….]
Why are you all so proud of your stupidity and cruelty?
Why aren’t you visiting him at home? You’re not afraid are you?
Unbelievable slap in the face to the 100s of people that have died in your district from C19 while simultaneously belittling the efforts of health workers exhausting themselves to care for the perpetually increasing # of patients about to overwhelm our medical centers. Disgusting
I am deeply embarrassed you are my congressional representative. You are an embarrassment to us all. 159 people are at Cox South today. Why don’t you come home and see for yourself?
Jackass. 4000 dead in MO, Springfield hospitals full and this is the best you can do? How many of your constituents are mourning the loss of loved ones? Do you care at all?
You are hilarious!!! You are also a piece of shit!!!
You sick bad?ard, you actually think that’s funny? While people die everyday? I hope you rot in hell.
Aren’t you tired of always being the stupidest person in the room?
You are such a profoundly, deeply stupid human being, but what makes you notable is your lack of empathy.
Imagine posting something like this in the midst of a pandemic that has killed 267,000 Americans. You must be a pathetic shell of a man.
Wow, that you can make this joke and laugh shows your total lack of concern for your constituents who have died or are still suffering from this disease. You are a disgrace
Billy Long @auctnr1
If he one day runs for President of the Korean Peninsula perhaps you can give him some pointers on running a successful Presidential campaign? @realDonaldTrump #MAGA
Marco Rubio @marcorubio
One more thing about KJU. While I know @potus is trying to butter him up to get a good deal, #KJU is NOT a talented guy. He inherited the family business from his dad & grandfather. He is a total weirdo who would not be elected assistant dog catcher in any democracy.
Which part of North #Korea’s style of governance do you like best, Billy? Extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape or forced abortions? You disgrace the body in which you serve.
It’s kind of weird to mock the failures of someone in your profession who has had far more success than you have. Rubio had an unsuccessful Presidential run, but no one outside your district has ever even heard of you.
ex-US Ambassador to North Korea Chris Hill on summit outcome: “Forgettable. joint statement weaker than any previous one since 1992. There is no way forward, no roadmap, no diplomatic strategy.”
Billy is defending NK DICTATOR while trashing US allies. He’s 100% Team Treason.
Kim is a dictator, dude. Rubio is right to criticize him.
Billy Long with the worst twitter take of the day
There’s a #SpecialPlaceInHell for anyone who makes me consider defending @marcorubio.
“TRUMP got taken to the cleaners bc he’s ignorant & monumentally unprepared. What did Kim Jong Un give up w/ regard to training his million man army? 12K North Korean artillery pieces are locked loaded & trained on Seoul. He learned Trump is a stupendous fool” – @SteveSchmidtSES
Billy can you just put the flag of the DPK and Russia in your Twitter profile so we’re all more clear on your starting point?
Rubio is a weasel, yes, but he’s not lying.
Are you declaring your support for Kim Jong Un? That’s what it sounds like to the world…yikes.
Glad to know you’re looking out for your constituents and not a dictator from a hostile foreign power. Cant wait to vote.
I’m no @marcorubio fan but Congressman, that was uncalled for.
The unbelievable moment when their “Dear Leader” becomes our “Dear Leader.”
Please look up what successful means. Also, please look up what Dictator means.
Do you thing he will ever “run” a campaign and you are okay with the human rights violations he is committing? It is a shame the way we have giving all our cards without having any kind of guarantee from him. I trust his word about as much as I trust our President’s.
So you’re sticking up for a dictator and criminal? Glad to see you’re representing Missouri well.
Are you seriously defending Kim Jong Un?
Do elaborate, Billy. What model of governing will be adopted? Putting political enemies in prison? Starving the citizenry? Oh, killing family? Or kidnapping folks from other countries? Fencing people in & shooting them if they try to leave? Torture?
Defending a dictator?
I guess it’s only a short leap to go from defending one dictator to another.
You’re DEFENDING Kim Jong Un, now?! #traitor #fucktrump
What the hell is wrong with Republicans? Congressman, you’re defending a dictator.
You’re suggesting Kim Jong Un could be a politician in a unified, democratic Korea, rather than spending life in prison for crimes against humanity? Nice.
You know dictators don’t run for election right ? Maybe you shouldn’t diss your fellow congress person over a brutal dictator me thinks.
You really defended Kim Jong Un? This is seriously happening? This is why we’ll see the end of the GOP in my lifetime. This is why no one trusts the government anymore. #endtheGOP #votehimout
So you think a guy who fed his uncle to dogs, starve his people, and commits numerous other atrocities is talented good guy who needs defending? Folks this is your gop and what they stand for
Wow defending KJU? This is what you call being a “conservative” now? Pass.
Are you defending…. (checks notes) …. brutal dictator Kim Jong Un?!??? So now GOP is cool with Putin, Duterte and KJU but not Trudeau or Merkel? Got it. We see you.
WTF. Kim Jong Un executed his uncle. What is wrong with you?
Cast your lot with a murderous autocrat over a GOP Senator. “America first”, right? Or is it actually “Trump first”?
So now you’re defending KJU? This is really how low the GOP has sunk? You’re a sad, sad man.
So you’re supporting Kim Jong Un? REALLY?
WTF is wrong with you? You defend Kim Jong Un? Unfriggin believable. This Republican Party have lost their minds.
Yeah, get him Billy!
Don’t let him get away with criticizing a dictator!!
Republicans butthurt about a communist dictator being insulted. Never thought I’d see the day.
You guys really try to out stupid each other, right? It’s a competition.

Count ’em, that’s three Democrats, eight republicans (including the incumbent), and a Libertarian. They must be trying to tell somebody something.
