Sen. Hawley uses Capitol riot hearing to criticize ex-general who called him 'piece of s--t'


Chris Sommerfeldt 13 hrs ago

Sen. Josh Hawley made a big stink Tuesday about a retired Army general who recently called the Missouri Republican “a little piece of s--t” who should be disbarred for his role in last month’s deadly pro-Trump attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Hawley took aim at the ex-general, Russel Honoré, during a Senate hearing that was supposed to focus on the security failures that paved the way for the Jan. 6 riot.

Instead of posing questions about the attack itself, Hawley asked each of the four congressional security officials giving testimony at the hearing what they thought of Honoré's recent statement that they gave the “appearance of complicity” by not making better preparations for Jan. 6.

The security officials replied that Honoré was mistaken, pleasing Hawley.

“Of course none of you were,” said Hawley, who himself remains under fire for his actions before, during and after the Jan. 6 assault. “To allege that any of you were complicit in this violent mob attack on this building I think is not only extremely disrespectful, it’s really quite shocking.”

3. Immature posturing from Hawley

With so many critical issues threatening our country, Hawley uses his platform to counter someone’s criticism instead of a search for the truth. His focus isn’t on serving our country. It’s all about him. He’s looking like another malignant narcissist. (And good for general Honore; his comment apparently hit the bullseye.)

9. Yes, General Honore was mistaken

Josh Hawley isn’t little, but he is a piece of shit.

I can just imagine the apology from the general: “I’m sorry for calling you little.”
