Adam Kinzinger Destroys ‘Con Artist’ Josh Hawley – ‘One Of The Worst Human Beings’

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) — who will go down in history as one of the few Republicans in the Age of Trump who possessed both a brain and a spine — has had more than enough of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), and he’s making it clear that he intends to keep calling Hawley out for his boneheaded actions and utterances.

Mediaite reports that Kinzinger was appalled by a report that Hawley wants the Biden administration to drop its support for Ukraine to join NATO, which just so happens to be the very same position that has been expressed by Russian President Vladimir Putin:

Axios, which broke the news, noted that “Hawley is staking out a position increasingly supported by the Republican base but historically at odds with the mainstream GOP consensus still backed by his Senate colleagues.”

That led Kinzinger to post this on Twitter:

“I hate to be so personal, but Hawley is one of the worst human beings, and a self egrandizing [sic] con artist.

“When Trump goes down I certainly hope this evil will be layed [sic] in the open for all to see, and be ashamed of.”

So what exactly is Hawley’s position on Ukraine and the fact that Russia is massing troops on its border? Typical GOP double-talk, with Axios noting:

“Hawley said he supports sending assistance that Ukraine needs to defend itself, but contends that the U.S. interest “is not so strong” to warrant going to war with Russia.”

Do you suppose Hawley would feel differently if Ukraine had oil or his lord and master Donald Trump suddenly said the U.S. should support the Ukrainians and be willing to go to war with Putin? Considering how fervently Hawley worships both the Donald and Putin, he’d probably be torn and have to bow to the wishes of his orange savior. Then again, Putin probably pays a lot better than the notoriously chintzy Trump.
