Josh Hawley Gets Brutal Reminder After Urging Men To Be 'Mighty Men Of Valor'

Republican Senator Josh Hawley spoke about being a 'mighty man of valor' at the Christian 'Stronger Men's Conference' and people mocked him for running away from rioters at The Capitol on January 6.

Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley's latest attempt to portray himself as a paragon of manliness backfired when he decided to lecture men at a religious event about the virtues of "being a mighty man of valor."

The Stronger Men's Conference—the event in question—was the perfect platform for the author of the book Manhood to expound on the importance of strength and power bestowed upon men by the almighty.

But Hawley's attempt to promote his version of masculinity fell flat when Twitter users lambasted him for his less-than-heroic actions during the Capitol riot.

As Hawley's critics were quick to remind him, it's hard to take a lecture on valor seriously when the lecturer had to run for his life just hours after pumping his fists in solidarity with the very same insurrectionists that stormed the Capitol.

You can hear what Hawley said in the video below.

Last year, the House Select Committee tasked with investigating the January 6 insurrection revealed surveillance footage of Hawley fleeing the United States Capitol during the attack he helped incite.

The footage, one of the latest developments during hearings into the insurrection—which took place when a mob of former President Donald Trump's supporters attacked the nation's seat of government on the false premise the 2020 general election had been stolen—was all the more striking because of Hawley's actions ahead of the event.

Hawley was the first Senator to object to the certification of President Joe Biden's electoral win and a now-infamous photograph taken outside the Capitol shows him indicating his support for rioters with a fist-pump.

Many mocked his remarks by resurfacing the footage of him running like his life depended on it.

Others called out his hypocrisy, replying directly to the Senator's tweet.

Hawley's actions were heavily criticized, particularly by Michael Fanone, a former D.C. Metropolitan Police officer who sustained a traumatic brain injury when he was beaten with a flagpole by rioters during the attack.

Fanone, who attended the hearing as a guest of the House Select Committee, said Hawley's actions betray the depths of his cowardice when mere hours before he'd welcomed rioters to the Capitol.

Nikki Haley's Blunt 'Election' Prediction Comes Back To Haunt Trump After Biden Drops Out

Earlier this year, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley made a blunt prediction about which political party would win this year's election, a statement that has garnered more attention since President Joe Biden dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris.

At 81, Biden faced increasing concerns within his party about his age and capacity to serve another term, along with fears of a potential loss to former President Donald Trump—who is 78—in November. In his announcement, Biden backed Harris as the Democratic nominee to replace him, calling it "the best decision I’ve made."
