Ever since Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) led the effort in the Senate to object to the results of the 2020 presidential election, he’s been trying to claim he’s being “muzzled” and “censored.”
But a tweet he posted Friday exposed that lie for the world to see.
In the process, Hawley has shown a talent for victimhood, claiming he was being suppressed by a “cancel culture” and was being “muzzled” ― in an editorial in the New York Post, no less.
However, Hawley didn’t help his “cancel culture” claim on Friday when he thanked 13 media outlets that have interviewed him since the Capitol riot.
Enjoyed talking to lots of MO reporters the last 2 weeks. Thanks for having me@WGEM, @ksdknews, @KTVOTV, @koamfox14, @kmbc, @kytv, @KRCG13, @newspressnow, @RaquelMartinTV, @KMOX, @41actionnews, @MarcCox971, @kcmotalkradio, and @933KWTO

Many Twitter users immediately noticed the hypocrisy in the tweet: If you are doing 13 media interviews, you’re not being canceled.
Did any of them ask why you lie about what the first amendment protects or why you screech that you’re being silenced while on TV?
