Josh Hawley Rips Walmart For Questioning His Move To Object To Biden: “Apologize for using slave labor”

Walmart was not happy with Josh Hawley’s decision to object to the electoral votes on Jan. 6th, 2021, and called him a sore loser. 

Hawley hit back and hit back hard. “Thanks ⁦@Walmart for your insulting condescension. Now that you’ve insulted 75 million Americans, will you at least apologize for using slave labor?” 

“Or maybe you’d like to apologize for the pathetic wages you pay your workers as you drive mom and pop stores out of business.” 

Hawley is the first GOP senator to back the effort by House conservatives to object to the results.

“I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws,” Hawley said in a statement. 

“And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden. At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act,” Hawley said. 

For a challenge to be successful both houses of Congress have to approve it and with the Dems in control of the house these challenges won’t stand much of a chance. 

From The Hill: 

Hawley’s decision comes as a group of House conservatives, led by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), have pledged to make a long-shot bid to overturn the results of the election on Jan. 6 by objecting to the Electoral College results. 

In order to force a debate and a vote on their objection to a state’s results they need a senator to also object—something they didn’t have before Hawley’s announcement on Wednesday. 

It will be the third time Congress has had to debate an objection since 1887, according to the Congressional Research Service.
