After Sen. Hawley tweeted that millions of American voters are "concerned about election integrity" and "deserve to be heard," which is why he is planning to "object on January 6 on their behalf," the official Walmart Twitter account tweeted back the following:
"Go ahead. Get your 2 hour debate. #soreloser."
The response was admittedly uncharacteristic of the Walmart Twitter account, which exists to engage with customers and act as a "face" for the company online. It would appear as though someone who works for Walmart forgot to log out of the company's account and into a private account before tweeting these antagonistic remarks.
Before Walmart figured out what had happened, Sen. Hawley shot back, thanking the company for its "insulting condescension."
"Now that you've insulted 75 million Americans, will you at least apologize for using slave labor?" Sen. Hawley added, hitting Walmart where it hurts. "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."
Walmart later apologized to Sen. Hawley, claiming that the "tweet published earlier was mistakenly posted by a member of our social media team."
"We deleted the post and have no intention of commenting on the subject of certifying the electoral college. We apologize to Senator Hawley for this error and any confusion about our position."
Disclose.tv was quick to comment on this half-baked apology, noting that Walmart did not address Sen. Hawley's questions about the company's slave labor practices.
Jack Posobiec also tweeted a response to the fiasco, noting that "Walmart's entire business model relies on China." This could explain why the company, or at least its social media team, prefers to have Joe "Beijing" Biden in office as opposed to another term of President Donald Trump.
Sen. Hawley, on the other hand, is rapidly forming a coalition of congressmen who plan to join him on Jan. 6 in protest of the Electoral College vote. According to reports, Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Tenn.), Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.), and Rep. Marjorie Greene (R-Ga.) are all now on board.
"On January 6, 2021, I plan to object to the Electoral College certification for the people of the Third District of South Carolina and the millions of Americans who are demanding transparency into the 2020 Election," tweeted Rep. Duncan, along with a full statement about what will take place.
Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is said to be conspiring with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to change the rules in advance of Jan. 6, effectively blocking Sen. Hawley and his colleagues from taking a stand against voter fraud.
"I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on Jan. 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws," wrote Sen. Hawley 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."
Sen. Hawley added that both chambers of Congress have utterly failed to act in a manner that is appropriate considering the circumstances, even though they did so in the past concerning other contested elections.
