Cue Josh Hawley . . .
@HawleyMO and @JoeNBC just because Hawley is educated it doesn’t necessary make him a smart guy and in this case that remark has never been more true. A Class A ignorant a—h——, full stop! 6:41 AM · Oct 8, 2021

Hey @HawleyMO, just circling back to see if you saw the threats to school officials across the country. We made a montage for you in case you didn’t.

Watch the video.
Some of the comments:
He’s taking this position when an out of stater charged with 260 counts of fraud, threatened Walmart pharmacists with execution & came to Hawley’s home turf to rant at the local school board meeting. [….]
It used to be that when someone’s perception of reality was this far off base he would get a trip in a special jacket so that he could not hurt himself. Now they just lie about where they live and get elected to office. [….]
Nurses in his state have to carry panic buttons. He doesn’t care.
Dude’s a traitor.
Help with with this. Is his the same Josh Hawley who called police and said he was being attacked when peaceful protestors walked in front of his house carrying signs earlier this year?
If you are expecting Hawley, or any member of the GOP, to suddenly start being intellectually honest, you will he waiting a loooong time.
@HawleyMO, we need your clarification in light of these threats. Do you support such conduct? For the record please!
If Josh took any interest in his home state, he’d know one of these “concerned parents” threatened a black admin with “something worse than lynching” this week. But he only cares about what his handlers say & his political ambitions.
Except the “MY” state should have been Virginia. Ain’t nobody in Missouri every seen him.
So embarrassing. I voted for Claire McCaskill.
so when a few people demonstrating with posters stood outside his house it was “harrassment”,but says the parents threatening the school board is ok?
Please find out how many days Josh Hawley has actually BEEN in Missouri since he was elected. Maybe he’s unaware of the real threats to individuals in Missouri since he lives in Virginia.
Good to know that Josh stands for law, order and tourism. The videos just show tourists at school board meetings.
I’m old enough to remember when Hawley was part of an insurrection.
Josh Hawley thinks this will get him elected President.
Well, there is a really low bar for his party’s nomination.
I can’t believe Hawley thinks he’s senatorial.
He does pompous ass really well.
He’s a jackass
Josh Hawley isn’t being sincere about threats at school board meetings. The American people have SEEN the verifiable threats made to educators, in the parking lots & in their cars.
Josh, when someone says to them: “We know where you live & we’re coming for you!”
It’s a threat.
If only everyone in the world knew what a lying, disingenuous, piece of shit he was before he was elected.
Oh wait, we did. Yet there’s enough partisan idiots in Missouri to put him in a position of power. Good work dumbasses
If Josh Hawley clutched those pearls any harder, he’d turn them into diamonds
Hawley knows exactly what he is doing, get these right wingers amped up so that they get themselves arrested. Keep playing that dog whistle.
So out of line. He knows, he is just an opportunist.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
It is shocking to see the President of the United States repeat false narratives and threaten law enforcement agents from the White House podium. It’s a new low, even by Biden’s standards 1:19 PM · Sep 24, 2021
January 6, 2020?
As always, there is much hilarity in the responses:
Hi tourists [….]
He doesn’t live in Missouri, he lives in Virginia
It was not whips (and I don’t believe he said it was) but that was cleared up pretty quickly. Still inhumane and horrible as you’d know if you’d ever been around horses and people who actually work cattle.
Crazy that you can have degrees from Stanford AND Yale and not have a basic understanding of “irony.”
Again – how about we focus on MO!
It wasn’t shocking when you supported the insurrection.
Oh it’s real rich, seeing @HawleyMO talking about false narratives.
Good thing Biden fixed the crisis. Quick too! Good job Joe! [….]
You looking in the mirror when you say someone is spreading false narratives?
Did you pay any attention to the last administration??
I believe the “new low” was January 6th. Ask your friends about it
He was there, with raised fist.
Like when they claim they won an election they clearly lost then incited an insurrection with the help of several US Senators? [….]
And given half a chance to get real power, Josh will stoop much, much lower…[….]
Aren’t you late for your goose stepping lessons?
Shouldn’t you be getting your phone records together? [….]
“Repeat false narritives”. You’re joking right?. Your master, Trump, was the king of false narratives.
Hoo boy, let me tell you about a former President who was the king of false narratives!
You are all for repeating false narrative when it’s done by Trump. Isn’t it a false narrative to say you actually live in the district you supposedly represent?
Spare us your fake outrage. Where was it when trump put children in cages?
Wait- weren’t you the guy that encouraged the insurrectionists on the way into the very building they later attacked? Time to slide off that high horse, @HawleyMO.
It’s shocking to see someone who lied to try to destroy our democracy on behalf of Donald Trump say “It is shocking to see the President of the United States repeat false narratives”.
You are such a projecting, dishonest, seditious clown.
You actually helped a President of the United States repeat false narratives, attack law enforcement and then tried to overturn an election you seditious shill. Were you always this deceitful or is this something you practiced?
That’s RICH! The big orange baby who’s ASS you kiss every day still to this day repeats false narratives. You’re such a hypocrite.
Dumb asshole who champions false narratives that lead to an assault on the nation’s capital says what?
Do you ever read what you write you effing idiot?
You’re shocked about false statements? Look back to 1/6. What a phony.
Oh really? The idiot you worship does nothing but lie and spread falsehoods, as do you
Remember when you and the former guy pushed false election fraud claims and your idiot supporters actively threatened and injured law enforcement officers at the capital?
It’s so funny. You were not shocked at all with TFG and his mafioso antics. Obstruction, him trying to steal an election, crimes, corruption, bribes. All of a sudden you discover “a new low?” Where have you been traitor?
Apparently he considers corporate franchise location micromanagement part of his job.

Are you serious? No @ChickfilA at the new KCI because the company is too conservative…
[….] 4:25 PM · Sep 22, 2021
Some of the responses:
The word “conservative” was not used in the story. However, “Not Inclusive” was. Which is true.
If KCI attacked the capitol maybe you’d support them then?
Considering that there was no mention of conservatism in that article you are admitting that being conservative means being non-inclusive. Thank goodness for free enterprise.
Conservative? or won’t comply with business hours requirements
You got bigger issues to worry about.
Maybe it’s because people eat on Sunday too.
Have you just said that being “conservative” means not being inclusive? Thank you for your honesty.
Closed on Sunday. Folks need food on Sunday, too
My condolences to the staffer that, during a pandemic, was ordered by the supporter of a violent insurrection that was intended to stop the counting of votes, to Tweet faux outrage about a chicken restaurant.
You don’t even live here so it’s not like you’re gonna be using our airport anyway
We have a looming debt ceiling crisis, a climate crisis, an ongoing pandemic, and a radical right that is still trying to overthrow democracy but sure, ride for your bigot chicken and your culture war bullshit, you moron
Maybe you should resign your senate seat so you can spend your time worrying about fast food options full time!
Don’t you live in Virginia
Do you ever do any actual work?
Only if conservative means homophobic.
This is what you are focused on?
You’re the one equating bigotry with “too conservative” here, you know…
Do you enjoy shooting yourself in the foot this much? Or is any trolling good trolling for you?
You run out of things to do?
A. What do you care what happens in MO when YOU LIVE IN VIRGINIA?
B. No preferential treatment just because they are jesusy. They must have accessible hours for flyers.
C. It’s mediocre chicken at best.
D. You need to resign.
Don’t you have better things to do? We have enough pundits pushing culture war garbage as it is.
Senator Hawley Press Office @SenHawleyPress
NEW — Senator Josh Hawley has written to Acting Secretary of Defense Miller in support
‘s plan for the prompt withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.
To say that today’s loss of American lives in Kabul is sickening does not begin to do justice to what has happened. It is enraging. And Joe Biden is responsible. It is now clear beyond all doubt that he has neither the capacity nor the will to lead. He must resign 3:30 PM · Aug 26, 2021
Some of the responses:
You know we can read your other tweets where you blame him for not leaving sooner, right?
Gaslighters depend on you not noticing that detail.
I missed your demand for the Former Guy to resign after Niger.
How did ISIS attack our troops when tRump defeated them 100%?
Sorry. You wanted us out on May 1, which DOD felt was impossible to meet. You don’t get to complain that things went downhill in August.
if I say “this you?” with multiple pictures of you raising your fist “in solidarity” with insurrectionists on January 6, will I be detained at JFK and accused of anti-American activities, that’s the question.
You should sit this one out, insurrectionist.
OK, Senator Military Expert who lives in Virginia. What should Biden have done differently?
Did Trump leave him his exit plan?
Remember the 16 Republicans who voted against Afghan interpreters getting visas to come back earlier? We do.
Maybe sit this one out
You previously attacked Biden for not leaving earlier
Hows this make you sick? 11/21/20
No sweetie. ISIS is responsible. We’ve evacuated 104 THOUSAND people in record time. Too bad he were the boy who sat on the last row in class and didn’t pay attention.
Sit this one out, Hawley and let the adults handle it
Guess who negotiated this shitty deal? Trump and Pompeo. Guess who let out 5,000 Taliban despite the Afghanistan gov asking him not to? Trump. Guess who stabbed the Kurds in the back leading to 1,000 ISIS fighters escaping? Trump.
What’s really shameful is your politicization of this tragedy, senator. There is plenty of blame to pass around, including the previous three presidents. This is a time to mourn the dead, Americans and Afghans, and commit to helping everyone who wants out of Afghanistan.
Unsurprisingly, there seems to be a disparity with your opinion last year.
Maybe make these two separate statements to avoid appearing like you are using the deaths of American service members for politics?
It’s in his nature.
On April 13 of this year, you called for Biden to withdraw the troops. Which is it??
And the Kurds are not able to be reached for comment
Who let Afghani leadership out of prison – some 5000 people – to appease the Taliban and Putin?
Sorry, what was that? I couldn’t hear you. I was reading this letter by a Missouri Senator about his expressed support to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
When your political legacy is distilled into a single meme…

Josh Hawley (R- Missouri) says he doesn’t want the infrastructure bill passed because his state (Virginia) has the best roads, hospitals, schools and bridges in the country. 6:13 PM · Aug 8, 2021
Jake Lobin @JakeLobin
Maybe Josh Hawley thinks that adding things like Broadband into the infrastructure bill is a “woke left political agenda,” because now more rural Missouri voters will be able to go online and find out that he lives in Virginia. 10:10 AM · Aug 9, 2021
Melody Fleshman @Urastar2me
Since Hawley doesn’t live in Missouri he should come and drive on some of our highways and bridges. His woke narrative is tired. 11:53 AM · Aug 8, 2021

The scene tonight at a raucous Loudoun County school board hearing where many came to voice opposition to critical race theory. The meeting was stopped when the crowd wouldn’t quiet down and two were arrested.
[….] 9:42 PM · Jun 22, 2021
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
.@mogop_jasper have been looking forward for many days to being with you tonight for Lincoln Days. But the Senate has stayed in session and I’m still in DC representing our state. I’ll keep on standing up for what we believe – unafraid – and hope to see you soon 11:24 AM · Mar 6, 2021
As usual, there was hilarity in most of the rsponses:
You voted against COVID-19 relief.
You don’t represent Missourians.
Josh, we here in Missouri are so very proud of what you are doing for us. Standings up for what us right and just and fair.We voted for you and have been very proud of you.
And the folks in Virginia?
Most of the people in Missouri I know didn’t, and the ones who did say they feel duped. They especially don’t like they found out he was lying about supporting pre-existing conditions, and conned them about even living here.
Who’s surprised that the party responsible for a violent insurrection that left 7 Americans dead, hundreds injured, ended a 232-year peaceful transition of power and whose own members are now currently under investigation by the DOJ wouldn’t vote for a plan to help Americans?
Personally I’m glad bill passed as I NEED the help! But, I totally agree with the reasons the Republicans are voting against it. It’s not the helping Americans part they object to, it’s the 90% of the bill going to things thst are not covid or people related.
except for you voted against the relief package after WEEKS of virtue signaling when it was politically convenient. Woj said it best. Resign.
Josh expressed a degree of concern;
about Wray’s probe he tried more to learn.
His hands fairly twitched; his
voice wavered & pitched. Maybe
Josh felt a tinge of heartburn?
Why focus on the metadata?
We very well may find out later.
Senators Hawley & Cruz have repeatedly expressed concern about the idea of the FBI looking into phone records of those in Congress, on & leading up to Jan 6. Hawley in particular has fumed about this “violation of privacy” in multiple hearings.
Mmm… Wonder why…
You voted against raising the minimum, guess you guys really aren’t the party of the working class.
The guy who instigated an attempt at political assassination — is going to celebrate “Lincoln Days.”
This shit writes itself.
This person won the Internets yesterday.
Wait…was Josh Hawley really planning to come back to Missouri?? Guess his sister was going to make up the spare bedroom for him at his “home” in Missouri.
You don’t represent us – we wanted the Covid relief bill & you voted against it. Thankful for the Democrats who passed it. They care. You don’t.
Maybe, and I’m just spit balling, don’t let your party waste 10 hours reading a bill just to be obstinate.
“Unafraid” is an odd word to throw in there…
Unafraid of what? The FBI gathering data on terrorists? Donors abondoning you as fast as they can?
At least you won’t have to pay for a hotel in Missouri, since you don’t have a house to stay at while there.
Here, let me fix this for ya: “Don’t worry, I’ll keep lying for you, and can’t wait to be thanked for it.”
Its your party’s fault it took this long.
Yeah, where is that vote for raising the minimum wage? Anyway, you support insurrection. Just stay at your Virginia home.
You don’t even live in Missouri, Josh
The very last place you represent is Missouri.
Unafraid? To represent a state you don’t live in?
Josh is busy trying to prevent financial help from reaching middle class families so that there will more $ to send to his billionaire donors.
So good to know Joshie cares so deeply for the people he used to live among! He clearly deeply connected! #JoshLies
You don’t represent me. (A Missouri resident.)
Pretty confident most Missourians oppose insurrection.
It’s close though.
Which state? The one where you live?
For what “we believe.” Maybe represent your entire state not just “we.”
Give it up. One termer.
You voted AGAINST the American people
He just tweeted this to another girl, dont believe him
You sure about that?
What are you afraid of? Hmm…
If you were truly unafraid you would not constantly say you are unafraid. #Traitor
“standing up for what we believe”. Is “what we believe” just limited to treason, insurrection, and sedition, or is there more to it than that?
The more you say you’re unafraid, the more we get the impression you’re trying to convince yourself otherwise.
Josh…what is it “exactly” that you believe in…
CERTAINLY NOT the working class. So rich people rejoice, the other hundreds of millions of you go F-yourself
Signed – j hawley
Biden COVID bill passed by Senate.
100% of Democrats supported it.
100% of Republicans who voted opposed it.
77% of all American voters support it and are relieved it passed.
Relief is coming, no thanks to Republicans!
@HawleyMO, are you able to help your constituents understand which parts of this you oppose? Be specific.
Another canned tweet from a deadbeat Senator.
Your no vote on the American Rescue Plan proves you have been lying all the times you swore to fight for $2000 stimulus checks. You and your obstructionist comrades don’t care a damn bit about working families struggling to keep their families fed and a roof over their head.
Y’all voted against the stimulus package so please tell your constituents to return their 1400.00
