Josh Hawley (r) is such a robot that he can’t even bother to find or use original attack talking points.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Nice to see that even now the media still has time for fake personal attacks. I have done 200! local tv interviews in last year. Nobody in Senate does more. KOLR has agreed to an interview precisely 4 times. Four. I am constantly available and you are constantly turning me down

Some of the responses:
Look what Donald Trump taught him.
He’s Trump’s sanctimonious plus one.
Senator @HawleyMO this is not fake, it’s not personal, it’s not an attack. It is a question. You were on premises in front of a rolling camera with a microphone on. Twice. Are you saying reporters need to agree to your interview times? Did you set the time for @TuckerCarlson?
Hawley’s skin is thinner than Trump’s.
I’m going to go with @JoyRobertson version of this story.
How many town halls have you hosted?
No one in Missouri will deny that you are so eager for a microphone and camera you will knock anyone out of the way to get one.
OTOH, we can totally believe you want no questions of substance, and would rather share the Frozen Fish Heir’s glow than deal with us plebes.
“The most dangerous place to stand in Washington D.C. is any place between Senator Josh Hawley and a live microphone” – Charles P. Pierce
I know some constituents who would love to sit down with you in the Lou. Maybe you should come on by and get to know us.
We have questions and want answers…
He seldom shows up in Kansas City, either. Too busy advancing his career on Fox “News” to speak to the proles.
Such a weak tweet. Too big to talk to Missourians. Come to STL.
This is a terrible look, Senator. You didn’t challenge the substance of the tweet but went on a rambling semi coherent attack. Unfortunately, Tucker Carlson gets more face time with you than home state journalists. You’re the Senator from the Show Me State, so show up!
“Nobody in the Senate does more.”
FFS, you even sound like him now.
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
Running for higher office already.
200 local interviews????? Not in the Missouri media market. Must be somewhere else.
Yeah, I’m calling B.S.
Do you need cheese with that whine?
Just because it’s Good Friday doesn’t mean you have to claim you’re being crucified.
Where’s the tests?
She didn’t claim that you never did local interviews, but that you denied them interviews in those two moments. Your response in no way addresses her claims.
If she’s wrong, then respond to her actual claim. Otherwise, your dishonest whining is an embarrassment.
Uh, it’s not fake if it’s true, Joshy.
Why are you whining? Do your job!
Where are the tests and PPE?
You just blocked a critical bill to aid small businesses, all because it also included help for communities on the frontlines, hospitals, and nutrition benefits for those going hungry. Shameful.
Last town hall? You are the swamp bro.
You are not readily available to your constituents. You’re a freaking liar. How about a town hall?
…In a December 31, 2019, letter (Appendix I, page 435) in response to seeing a draft copy of this report, the AGO formally objected to the inclusion of interview transcripts in this report, and stated the inclusion of these transcripts would be a disclosure of audit working papers, and therefore, a felony violation of Chapter 29, RSMo. The SAO disagrees with this conclusion. Objections to the inclusion of interview transcripts and audit communications citing Chapter 29, RSMo, are without merit. The confidentiality provisions of Chapter 29 are intended to protect the SAO’s working papers from public disclosure. The interpretation that those confidentiality provisions are intended to keep the SAO from disclosing information obtained during the course of the audit is at odds with Chapter 29, RSMo, and Yellow Book requirements, which both require a report of information obtained during an audit be made public. In addition, the statement that the inclusion of working papers as appendices to a public report is unprecedented is not accurate. Including information obtained during an audit as appendices is very common and not unique to this administration. Appendices have been part of audit reports issued by the SAO for decades…
This evening Josh Hawley (r) again took to Twitter:
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Don’t think @nicolergalloway attacks on me & other Republicans are 100% political? Now she’s fundraising off of audits! Is it too much to ask that she just do her job – and quit using her office to campaign? #mogov #moleg

Let’s see: projection, chutzpah, entitlement, lack of self awareness, ladder climbing… That’s a lot to pack into one Tweet.
Of course, there is much hilarity in the responses:
I guess you shouldn’t have given her the ammo now, shouldn’t you? The only one you have to blame is yourself. Stand up and take it like a man.
Projecting. Like Trump.
One word, projection!
These ppl weaponize everything against Republicans..the IRS, the FBI, the FISA Courts. They are truly totalitarian
What a friend they have in Putin.
“Россия” (Russia) – a variant of the Russian presidential flag.
Didn’t you do THE SAME DAMN THING??…Oh wait yes you did and her audit showed it
You’re the worst, Josh
She must be getting close to the target to have so many tweets from you. Also don’t use any of your ‘achievements’ when you attempt to run for office again.
Golden coming from you #senatorflatbed
The Ivy League vision of a flatbed truck.
You didn’t do your job…..you swore to uphold the Constitution and yet you voted to acquit the most corrupt, immoral President in the history of the US.
We will not forget.
You used your office and staff to campaign. Get off your high horse, little Josh. It’s tiring.
‘do her job and quit using her office to campaign’???? That is rich coming from you.
You seem worried.
Why don’t you worry about serving the people of the state you really don’t represent well?
You have lost all of your credibility and any respect that I may have had for you. It sounds like it isn’t just me either.
VP of trump water carriers. Speaking of doing your job, did you forget your office? When are you gonna come back and face your constituents? You’re a joke.
Lol, you outsourced the AG job while you campaigned for Senate! You are perfect for Trumpian times, a shameless liar and hypocrite. You still don’t want us to have healthcare, even as you lied about it. Weasel.
No one want to listen to your BS anymore. We have no respect for you. We would actually prefer you resign.
You seem like the type that has gotten into a heated argument over FaceTime, only to find out your selfie cam was on. You’re a hypocrite. Resign.
You must be kidding. You never really did your job in MO. Went to the gym and then started campaigning for senate. At least she can point to actual completed tasks
Ouch. That one left a mark.
Dude..you are a political hack extraordinaire. Very recently out took an oath to God and trashed it. You lustily cheered the medaling of a racist and said nothing when a war hero was jackbooted out of the White House! I think the natives call this “speaking with a forked tongue”.
Let’s see… how did Josh get elected Senator? He fundraised off his BS record as AG.
You belong with Trump. You’re both full of shit.
Lol you have to be kidding….what the heck did you do even after you said you weren’t interested in a senatorial position you are such a liar wow
Pres. Obama continues his taxpayer-paid campaign bus tour today in the Midwest. Wonder how much this is costing taxpayers? 4 hours ago
Would you rather he fly? Maybe not.
My goodness, traveling around the country and having his staff expell dissenting voices from public events would be an impeachable offense, wouldn’t it?:
…Weise and Young were admitted to the event at that time, but were later ejected, after the Secret Service agent had consulted with and been advised by White House Advance Office employees. In recommending ejection, these White House Advance Office employees (according to the complaint) appeared to be following an established White House Advance Office “policy of excluding those who disagree with the President [George W. Bush] from the President’s official public appearances….”
