Fresh off his stint of being the Twitter laughingstock du jour after showcasing his lack of understanding of basic human anatomy, anti-LGBTQ Sen. Josh Hawley was harshly criticized on the floor of the U.S. Senate on Thursday.
In a speech that’s since gone viral, Democratic Sen. Brian Schatz blasted Hawley for holding up Pentagon nominations. But Schatz’s condemnation went much further than that.
“He is damaging the Department of Defense,” he said. “And this comes from a guy who raised his fist in solidarity with the insurrectionists.”
Every single word of @SenBrianSchatz destroying Josh Hawley is straight fire.
More of this please. ?pic.twitter.com/pde92BpEbb

“And this comes from a guy who, before the Russian invasion, suggested that maybe it would be wise for Zelensky to make a few concessions about Ukraine and their willingness to join NATO. This comes from a guy who just about a month ago voted against Ukraine aid! He’s saying it’s going too slow? He voted ‘no’ — he voted ‘no’ on Ukraine aid and now he has the gall to say it’s going too slow!”
Schatz continued: “And coming from a person who exonerated Donald Trump for extorting Zelensky for withholding lethal aid? They withheld lethal aid until, unless Zelensky would release false smears against Joe Biden’s son. And then he voted to exonerate President Trump for this. And so spare me the new solidarity with the Ukrainians and with the free world because this man’s record is exactly the opposite.”
The spectacle quickly gained traction on Twitter, with folks commenting on the catharsis of witnessing the brutal rebuke.
Watching Brian Schatz destroy Josh Hawley over Hawley’s blocking of the senior staffing leadership at the DOD was one of the best things to happen this week.
I didn’t know Schatz before this, but I am beyond impressed!

Sex is good, but have you watched Brian Schatz bring all the receipts to Josh Hawley's Nazi loving face?
"Spare me the new solidarity with the Ukrainians, & with the free world, because this man's record is exactly the opposite."

I’m glad someone in the gov’t is point out how hypocritical it is for the insurrectionist party to try and feign solidarity with Ukraine now when they were all for Trump extorting them in the past.
for the Republican congress, it’s all about getting back control of the Federal government. they won’t acknowledge the instigators or supporters of the insurrection, regardless of whether it was from inside or out.
their constant messages of Dems at fault for everything is part of the tactic they use to make sure their constituents do not stray when it comes time to voting.
how horrifying that there are barely any Republicans in power that when they publicly speak, there is no conspiracy theory or stupidity coming out of their mouths.
I’m surprised Josh Hawley can loosen his thin lips long enough to get anything out of his mouth!
Just one of the many GOP morons!
I didn’t know Senator Schatz either. He represents Hawaii. I’m glad he’s in the Senate.
I Loved listening to Brian so much!! I lived in Missouri for 7 years…Hawley is a POS. Every time I see him, I think “he’s so creepily perfect” his hair is perfect, his clothes are always immaculate, he speaks so righteously, you know he’s doing weird stuff when the camera is off. IDK what skeletons are going to come out of his closet, but they will come out eventually. I can’t wait until that day…
We should have more like Senator Schatz, he reports the truth about Trumpsters!
Hawley should be indicted, arrested, tried, convicted, and punished for treason against the United States.
The library is open hunty! That would be kind of fun if congress had a reading challenge like on Drag Race. I mean, it’s not like they get anything accomplished anyway. And it has been devolving into a trainwreck reality show anyway. May as well entertain us while they waste our money.
Well, they did pass a landmark infrastructure bill, and they also passed a massive relief package in 2021 that has turned the economy around from the disaster Don the Con left it in. So they do get some things done.
“its not like they get anything done anyway…” please just pick up your toys and GO AWAY….go find another hobby YOU SUCK at politics.
Two words: Gun control. Just was trying to poke fun at the situation with gay flair which I knew would trigger some “holier than thou” gays.
Whenever I see a picture of Hawley, I swear he has been in that “It’s gonna hurt” series.
Hawley is a traitor and more people with power and influence should speak out against him.
Schatz means treasure in German and is a term of endearment among some; very appropriate.
Kudos to Senator Schatz!
I thought the same thing about hawley…its gonna hurt, but thats what he wants.
From what I saw, Rep. Hawley was excoriated by at least one more Representative besides Senator Schatz (he also had things to say about others of that ilk). We need more of this in Congress.
OMG my nipples are vibrating, his fact-based Read! got me hot for him yes more please
