Missouri residents were not happy on Monday after Attorney General Josh Hawley (R) offered their state to host Donald Trump’s military parade.
On Monday, Hawley tweeted saying:
“@realDonaldTrump, we would love to host the military parade in Missouri. The politicians in D.C. are wrong. Our military and veterans deserve to be honored.”

Hawley’s tweet drew instant criticism from residents all over the state.
Please don’t speak for all of us. We do honor our military and veterans…. which isn’t the point if this parade. The point of it is to boost the ego of the President.

He bud – why not guarantee all military families health insurance for life or perhaps a living wage? They’ll appreciate that much more than a silly parade.

You want to honor military?
1. Sign up. You’re still young enough
2. Rather than wasting money on appeasing Trump’ ego, use the massive cash required for the VA to help injured soldiers.
Or simply: stop trying to use our troops as props for your senate run, you fraud.

You footing the bill?

Hey @HawleyMO, why don’t you focus on being the AG for MO? You have no accomplishments and a parade would be a waste of money.
Oh wait, you can’t “AG” right now because you started running for senate the day Missourians elected you in ‘16. Get him, @clairecmc !#LadderClimber
