I’m so excited to see the end of your political career.
You know what makes you #heartlesshartzler is when you tweet crap like this. How many Missouri small businesses could have benefited from the $450,000+ you took in PPP loans?!? You’re a multimillionaire, you didn’t need the $$$, you took it, checks notes, “because you could”!
just a reminder that Vicky Hartzler has received millions in government handouts she has not had to repay to help support her supposedly businesses.
I didn’t get any benefit for the Trump Tax Cut. You grifted over $450,000 on a PPP loan, so when are you paying it back? Oh yeah, it was FORGIVEN.
Replace “student loans” with “PPP loans” and you wouldn’t send that tweet.
I don’t have a farm but, evidently, I had to pay for yours.
The 330 million Americans who do not have a farm should not have to pay for those who do.
It is inherently unfair and will be challenged in court.
That’s what you sound like.
You should pay back the government loan you received. That sounds fair to me.
I’m not a farmer, why should I pay for crop subsidies? I don’t have kids in schools, why should I pay school taxes?
I didn’t file for PPP loan forgiveness for almost non-existence companies, why should I pay to forgive those loans?
Why are you a hater and a liar?
I’m not a member of Congress who got a free PPP loan that they didn’t have to pay back, and I should not have to pay for the ones that did.
What about the members of Congress who received PPP loans and didn’t pay them back? Can you talk about the fairness of that for a moment, as you appear to have first-hand knowledge of it.
Blah blah blah.
Hmmmm…. wall street bailouts? Tax breaks for the top 1%? PPP loans? Airline bailouts? The list goes on and on. Crazy how when funds go to help everyday people instead of “trickling down”, it’s a big problem.
You voted for Trump’s 2017 tax giveaway to the 1%.
You have no talking room about making people pay for others’ financial responsibilities.
Vicki Hartzler (R-MO) $451,200
Almost ALL of us are not billionaires. So why should we pay for their tax cuts? Talk about “inherently unfair”.
What a hypocrite
Why is it that the professional victims of the Republican Party get to bail out on their loans, bail out their businesses and their friends (that sweet campaign money)- but help actual struggling citizens and “oh woe is us”.
Explain you PPP of $451,200.
I’d rather my tax money went to help people than subsidize corporations.
And, your talking point is getting stale already. [….]
Oh, lord, lady, I pay for a lot of things through the government that I will never receive any benefits from. I don’t have a business that got PPP loans that were forgiven either.
Glad I’m not your neighbor. Are you a “christian” too? It’s not “unfair”. It’s not “illegal”. You are showing what kind of a representative you really are. For the rich!
“…The fairness doctrine took effect shortly after the creation of the Federal Radio Commission (FRC) in 1927 and was continued by its successor, the FCC, until the late 1980s. In its 1929 Great Lakes Broadcasting Co. decision, the FRC asserted that the “public interest requires ample play for the free and fair competition of opposing views, and the Commission believes that the principle applies to all discussions of issues of importance to the public….”
The Fairness Doctrine died in 1987 when Ronald Reagan (r) was in office.
“…On January 21, 2010, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission overruling an earlier decision, Austin v. Michigan State Chamber of Commerce (Austin), that allowed prohibitions on independent expenditures by corporations. The Court also overruled the part of McConnell v. Federal Election Commission that held that corporations could be banned from making electioneering communications….”
Where Roy Blunt (r) tries to pretend he’s never heard of Citizens United or the Fairness Doctrine:
Senator Roy Blunt @RoyBlunt
It’s hard to have truly fair elections when large email platforms are deciding which messages can easily reach voters and which get buried in a spam folder. 3:40 PM · Jun 15, 2022
What’s the matter Roy, you can’t buy any stamps or newspapers?
Some of the responses:
It’s hard to have truly fair elections when $20 Billion is being spent just on political campaigns ensuring divisive & emotionally charged messaging can easily reach voters. Time to revoke Citizens United & shine a blinding light on Dark Money contributions.
It’s hard to have truly fair elections when large mobs are deciding to usurp voters by seeking to bury the vice president.
Trust me when I say that the contents of my SPAM folder were never the reason that I didn’t vote for you.
Perhaps my emails to you to get your thoughts on common sense gun control in Missouri HAVE gotten stuck in your SPAM box, though, since I sure haven’t heard back from you.
You going to complain about dial-up speeds next? Gas prices, milk prices, and spam emails. So glad I have a senator who’s focused on solving the biggest problems of 1998
Try a decade before that.
It’s hard to have truly fair elections when you put obstacles in the way of voting, and put people in positions of power whose stated purpose is to only verify results where Republicans win.
How about when one side storms the capitol to overthrow the results of the election?
Distract and deflect…. What does the 1/6 committee have on you? Might your name be coming up?
Restore the Fairness Doctrine and help cure the evils of Fox News
Didn’t you vote for the “grab them by the pussy” guy or did I get that wrong?
It’s not like he made a clenched fist/solidarity sign to Capitol rioters.
He’s not wrong. And your guy did this daily for four years.
Can you please direct me to your tweets criticizing Trump for the language he used in office or how he treated reporters?
I don’t remember you having a problem when Trump described the press as being the enemy of the people and called rivals scum.
Josh misses the president that bragged about sexual assault and planned a violent coup
Havent seen you round these parts much lately. How is Virginia?
Give me a break. Remember the former guy and the things he said? Don’t be so hypocritical.
Dear Mr. Hawley. You should be very familiar with the phrase you are referring to. I’m sure you have heard it many many times. I often describe you with the exact same phrase. When using the phrase to describe anyone from @FoxNews, it is totally appropriate.
I mean…. He isn’t wrong. He could say the same of you.
It’s a lot more presidential than inciting an insurrection.[….]
I think he should call another press conference just to repeat himself!
He was absolutely correct in that assessment, after all.
I’m surprised you’ve still got pearls left to clutch, figured they’d all have disintegrated from overuse
Don’t worry Joshy you’ll never have to worry about being Presidential
Honesty is the best policy. Try it sometime.
Clutch those pearls, Josh. [….]
Sometimes you just have to state the obvious.
And yet again this isn’t going the way you thought it would.
The one year anniversary of January 6th highlights the Democrats’ obsession with Donald Trump and the politicization of this unfortunate event. Instead of focusing on the great challenges facing Americans today, such as Inflation hurting families, the border crisis raging on, and our enemies across the globe no longer fearing us, the Left wants to continue living in the past. We MUST change course.
We also must remember that Americans who participated in the Capitol riots last year are still being held in despicable conditions. While these individuals broke the law and should be held accountable, they should not be denied basic rights. The January 6th panel should tour the D.C. jail and ensure that constitutionally protected rights are upheld.
“…The January 6th panel should…”
Wait, Vicky Hartzler voted against the “January 6th” panel.
Some of the responses to Vicky Hartzler’s (r) post on Facebook:
You defend the traitors to democracy.
Sometimes, Vicky, the truth is hard to see. Your statements reveal that you are blind to the “dagger at the throat of democracy”. Your failure to support the investigations into the revolt show in a bright light how you are denying your oath to this country. You should be outraged at what happened on 1-6-21 not continuing to spread the BIG LIE. The truth will always come out. The leaders who assisted in this American disgrace will be held accountable. You can either be on the side of the truth and be part of the healing of this country or you can continue your scheme to support those who lie. You have the choice and I encourage you to do what is right for your constituents and country.
“Unfortunate event”, that’s what you call an attempted coup? You are nothing more than a complicit hack.
Interesting that you’re choosing to make a statement on this on your campaign page and not your congressional page.
Sedition, sedition, sedition.
This day will forever mark the shame of Republicans & their insurrection! You cannot reframe it into something else!
The fact that you refer to it as an unfortunate event is telling. You clearly aren’t interested in accountability, since the “unfortunate event” in question wouldn’t have happened if one person had just accepted reality. You dishonor Capitol Hill police who were injured and/or died from the insurrection that day by minimizing what actually occurred. Shameful.
Says the person who buys into and promotes the BIG LIE and voted against the will of the voters twice Immediately after OUR Capitol was attacked and police and people were hurt and died. You should not serve in elected office. Country over your “It’s All About Vicky” propaganda. #jan6insurrection
Oh Vicky. What’s your end game??
Take some selfies in their living conditions.
One of the major issues facing the United States is the division caused by the Republican party, promoting trump’s big lie. Most of the problems could be addressed rationally and reasonably, but for republican obstructionism. You continue to harp on Democrats’ inability to address national problems, but your party takes no positive action. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. What ever happened to the party of Eisenhower?
It dissolved over 40 years ago.
Vicky you are a joke. Where were you Jan 6 2020? In your bullet proof underwear knowing the coup was happening? You havent helped the Jan 6 committee and if you are a loyal citizen of US sworn to protect the constitution why are you still kissing Trump? What does Trump have over you?
Today, from the right wingnut governor of South Dakota:
Kristi Noem @KristiNoem
Listen I get it. I signed up for this job. But now the media is trying to destroy my children. This story is just another example of the double standard that exists with the media… going after conservatives and their kids while ignoring Liberals #AskTheBigGuy 2:07 PM · Sep 27, 2021
Ah, the republican cult of the victim.
A year ago:
Kristi Noem @KristiNoem
We can’t have corrupt leaders, but the Hunter Biden story signals exactly that kind of corruption and does tremendous damage to Joe Biden’s credibility.
Americans deserve the full truth, and @Twitter and @Facebook should stop blocking it!

It’s always projection with republicans, isn’t it?
How much to add that extra face on Mt. Rushmore? Just asking.
Bad combover. Check. Too long red tie. Check. Orange spray tan. Check. Tiny hands. Check. Cluelessness. Check…
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?
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
President Biden should withdraw troops in Afghanistan by May 1, as the Trump administration planned, but better late than never. It’s time for this forever war to end

Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
My statement on the crisis that Joe Biden’s failure of leadership has caused in Afghanistan
[blah, blah, blah…] 12:15 PM · Aug 16, 2021
Some of the responses:
Too bad you said nothing about Trump’s decision to withdraw.
More seriously, what would YOU have done to prevent this.
It is strange you only mention Biden. Who got us into Afghanistan?
Did you include the part that said, you realize he was fulfilling the promises made by the previous, DJT last March and May of 2020 When he gave them a gift of 5,000 Taliban prisoners ahead of his so called negotiation Peace Talks he wanted them to attend at Camp David? I bet not
Trump cutting a deal with the Taliban without the Afghan gov even being involved was “hugely demoralizing” and led to the current chaos. Just weeks before the 2020 election, the Taliban endorsed Trump for pres in the hopes he would “wind up U.S. military presence in Afghanistan.”
1 month ago, Trump claimed full, unequivocal credit for the withdrawal in Afghanistan. “I started the [withdrawal] process. [Biden] couldn’t stop the process.”
Biden merely completed what TFG started to begin with. If there’s blame, you know where to go
You’re just jealous the Taliban pulled off what you couldn’t on 1/6.
Talk to trump, he set this up. Released prisoners. Met with taliban but didn’t include Afghanistan officials in on the agreement. Why
If it’s bidens fault why take down the website that praised trump for his great negotiating skills in Afghanistan
Where was your outrage when the deal was signed by Trump last February?
Good question. Apparently it isn’t what is done, it’s who did it that outrages them. I guess they also forgot the Kurds.
Are you visiting MO or in VA where you actually reside?
Some questions on military capacity do indeed need answers, but this is a ridiculous over-simplification of complex & intractable problems.
What about the Doha Agreement signed on Feb. 29, 2020?

On Monday, I will introduce a resolution in the Senate to condemn the poisonous rhetoric by the Left and the media about Israel that has helped inspire violence against Jewish people across the world 2:50 PM · May 21, 2021
A few of the responses to Josh Hawley (r):
The same guy who voted no for the bill ‘Hate crimes against Asians Americans’ has a idea. So very predictable Senator.
The “only” guy who voted against the bill.
What are you going to do about Jan 6? Is this you?
Does that mean you want to cancel them? Are you “Pro Cancel-Culture” now?
How does it feel to be polling at 0% for ’24?
Was it worth it?
Poisonous rhetoric? Well isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black, Josh.
Finally found a group of people you like huh? Since you obviously don’t care about black lives, police lives, and Asian Americans to start.
Narrator: He doesn’t like them either.
Weren’t you the only No vote against a hate crime bill to stop violence against Asians?
So meaningless platitudes?? That’s on brand for you…
But you won’t condemn Jan 6th? Got it.
Doubt it will amount to much considering your mates thinks Jan 6th was just an average tourist day at the Capitol
on Monday, Sen. Karen will continue to wage war against the First Amendment
…and immediately following this the adults in the room will collectively roll their eyes and resume working.
That’s not enough. They need a majority.
MAGA is a race to the bottom and Josh is in the lead.
Just stopped to read what ludicrous claims you were spouting today. Are you job hunting yet?
I hate to break it to you, Josh, but piddly shit like introducing a ridiculously demagogic resolution that stands zero chance of getting to the floor, much less passing, sure ain’t gonna raise you above 0% in that poll about the 2024 GOP nomination that came out the other day.
How about condemning the poisonous rhetoric that led to the Jan 6th storming of the capitol, dead police officers, & a direct threat to our democracy? Oh right, you were spewing that rhetoric & won’t own up to it. #Resign
Hee Haw Hawley is right about 1 thing….
He is an expert on poisonous rhetoric..
I shall not sleep till then. Kidding. I sleep like a baby since Orange Capone is gone. Your flailing for significance amuses me.
Translation: I’m trying real hard to be relevant.
If you only worried about Missourians as much! What have you done for me lately other than be an embarrassment to the people in my state?
Joshy will never be President.
You mean: Jews will not replace us? Or, Jews make laser beams that start fires?
you are like a high school play
all melodrama but totally unbelievable
Poor Josh, reallly wants to be POTUS. Can’t get above 0%.
I just came here to laugh at you.
How about condemning dangerous rhetoric about the election
“Poisonous rhetoric” is your specialist subject, right?
The same people you raised your fist in solidarity with are one in the same with the people that yelled “Jews will not replace us” at Charlottesville
Oh that’s rich. And the Asian community? When do they matter? So sad.
Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Less than a month after leftist psycho murders cop at the Capitol, Maxine Waters back to openly inciting violence against law enforcement – but still on social media!
[….] 10:18 AM · Apr 20, 2021
Some of the responses:
Every true patriot understands that Josh Hawley has blood on his hands. Each new gripe or complaint his repute helps to taint as he desperately tries to rebrand. An outcome of naked ambition? For Hawley, unbridled sedition.
1. Of course you already know this but are choosing to pretend that you don’t: you can be confrontational without being violent.
2. Let me know when Maxine Waters votes to overturn a secure presidential election and openly supports a mob ready to invade the US Capitol.
It wasn’t a “leftist psycho,” it was the sort of far-right whackadoodle you keep trying to push corrosive disinformation at. We still haven’t forgotten your raised fist signaling to the militias, Josh. Maybe it’s best if you stay quiet for the rest of the day, considering.
Rich coming from this guy.
If there’s someone who knows a thing or two about inciting violence against law enforcement it’s Josh Hawley.
Remember when you signaled your support to those who assaulted the Capitol Police?
Dude you were part of the insurrection !! Remember you pic with the fist up !!!
Go fuck yourself, traitor.
What is the senate doing to hold the Jan 6 insurrectionists responsible for their actions?They clearly intended to murder congressmen and the US VP. And you encouraged them to do it.
We will never forget that Josh Hawley helped incite the violent Jan. 6 attack against America
It’s absurd that he’s still a senator
You quietly celebrated the 26th anniversary of Timothy McVeigh’s bombing of the Alfred P. Murray Federal Building yesterday, didn’t you?
You did this, Hawley
Less than four months after a radical right-wing white-supremacist mob assaulted the Capitol, killed one cop and injured many more, vandalized, stole, shouted their intent to kill the VP, the Speaker of the House, and others–YOU are still on social media and not in prison.
Less than a few hours after the Capitol was attacked by MAGAs, GOP senators voted against approving the results of a free and fair democratic election.
Remember this, Kid Hitler?
The fecking nerve
It’s common for criminals to try and tamper with the evidence in an effort to whitewash their crimes
What was that hand sign you made on the 6th Josh?
It takes both real effort and a considerable amount of talent to be this dishonest, but Josh Hawley has the goods. No wonder John Danforth dropped him–who would want to be associated with garbage accusations like this? And this man wants to be President.
I think you should probably go ahead and sit this one out, Joshie. January 6 wasn’t really that long ago, was it? [….]
This you giving the Capitol insurrectionists a raised fist in solidarity, Josh?
Oh, Josh, I’d be really careful about going down this road if I were you. For all we know you’re still being investigated for your part in the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Raise your hand if you encouraged an insurrection riot on 6 January 2021!
