Dear Commons Community,
CNN’s Brianna Keilar yesterday called out Senator Josh Hawley’s (R-Mo.) complaints about being “canceled” by the media.
“Just try to get away from Sen. Hawley. It’s like trying to escape the Kardashians,” commented Keilar the “New Day” host. “It’s impossible, because he’s everywhere.”
Keilar noted that Hawley ― an ally of Donald Trump who supported the ex-president’s attempts to overturn the 2020 election result ― is on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, and he shows up on Fox News “as often as you brush your teeth.”
“And don’t forget, as he complains about being silenced, he also has a platform so exclusive that only 99 other Americans have access to it — the floor of the United States Senate,” she continued.
“‘Silenced,’ he says. But he’s not and he knows it,” Keilar concluded. “He’s a smart man who sees opportunity in acting like a martyr.”
