After video footage emerged of Sen. Josh Hawley running away from the Jan. 6 rioters, the clip went viral, and the panel on “The View” decided to join in on poking fun at the politician’s expense.
The videos surfaced as part of Thursday night’s Jan. 6 committee hearing; Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA) detailed that Hawley also escaped the Capitol that day, shortly after he lifted a fist to hail the crowd on his way into work that morning.
Guest co-host Ana Navarro was one of the more vocal criticizing Hawley for the hypocrisy of saluting the crowd he would be running away from on Jan. 6.
“What an invertebrate that man is,” Navarro said, per TheWrap. “We all saw him, remember, when he has his fist up. I think at that point he must’ve thought he was hailing a cab. And then we see him running like the shrimp, wimp, coward, accomplice, hypocrite he is.”
“And then after he’s running like Forrest Gump — run Joshua, run! Run! — after we see him running, then he’s got the gall to go out and sell merchandise and fundraise over the fist bump! Chica, please!”
The Hawley clip is the latest information to come out of the Jan. 6 hearings on Thursday.
FOX Nation Earns Spot on 2023 Fastest Growing Brands List
The platform came in No. 14 on the list.
Fox News’ streaming platform, FOX Nation, appeared on Morning Consult’s Fastest Growing Brands list for 2023. The report is on the top 20 brands that have experienced a significant increase in purchasing consideration this year.
Additionally, the report examines how this trend affects different generations and identifies the brands that have seen an uptick in purchasing consideration, even if it hasn’t necessarily resulted in a direct increase in sales.
So, where does FOX Nation rank in the top 20? The platform came in No. 14, ahead of YouTube shorts and Instagram, to show how much FOX Nation has risen. Furthermore, it was the only streaming platform on this list.
“Growth was determined by taking the share of consumers who said they were considering purchasing from the brand from Oct. 1-24, 2023, and subtracting the share who said the same from Jan. 1-31, 2023,” the report said.
“The Fastest Growing Brands 2023 analysis was conducted among 1,586 brands. Sample sizes ranged from 1,069 to 17,661 responses collected among U.S. adults, with respective margins of error ranging from +/-3 to +/-1 percentage points.”
CNN to Host the Next Two Republican Primary Debates
CNN will host the debates in Iowa and New Hampshire next month.
The next stop for the Republican primary debate is CNN. After NewsNation hosted a debate Wednesday, the three-letter network announced Thursday that they’ll host debates in Iowa and New Hampshire next month.
CNN has scheduled the first of two primary debates on their network on January 10, 2024, at Drake University in Des Moines. The debate will take place just a few days before the Iowa caucus. Meanwhile, CNN has scheduled the second debate on January 21 at St. Anselm College in Goffstown, New Hampshire.
To participate in CNN’s Iowa debate, candidates must obtain at least 10 percent in three separate national and/or Iowa polls of Republican caucusgoers or primary voters meeting CNN’s reporting standards.
Finally, for candidates to participate in CNN’s New Hampshire debate, candidates must register a minimum of 10 percent in three national and/or New Hampshire polls to qualify for the Republican primary, according to CNN’s reporting standards.
The Iowa debate’s qualifying deadline is on January 2, and the qualifying period for the New Hampshire debate ends on January 16. The organizers will invite candidates who finish among the top three in the Iowa caucuses to participate in the New Hampshire debate.
Hosting two debates comes on the heels of the network announcing that it will have two town hall events with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy next week.
