Insurrectionist Senator Josh Hawley Gets Lit Up on Twitter

Two views of Josh Hawley on the same day.
Josh Hawley has gone viral on social media in ways he never expected and will probably never live down, replete with a variety of sound tracks.
Last night’s prime time broadcast of the January 6th Committee hearing was compelling to say the least. The material presented left an indelible message that Trump intended the violence that happened, encouraged it and amplified it.

It was and is a dark stain on the history of our country. There is also no question that Trump had direct and enthusiastic support in his—in retrospect utterly inept—plan to become a dictator.

One such supporter was Missouri Senator Josh Hawley, as one of the Senators who objected to the counting of the Electoral College votes being counted which certified Joe Biden’s election. He was also infamously photographed with a raised fist in solidarity with the rioters invading the Capitol.

But now the most indelible image of Josh Hawley is of him sprinting away from the rioters as they invaded the building, in fear for his life. This imagery was part of last night’s hearing presentation. But today Hawley has gone viral on social media in ways he never expected and will probably never live down, replete with a variety of sound tracks.

First the raw video:

Now a sampling of the creativity found on social media:

These are only a few examples of what is flooding Twitter right now.

There is not really a lot to say about this character other than the fact that as an insurrectionist he is not qualified to hold the office he has—oh and there is that masculinity campaign he’s been harping about.
