Video of Josh Hawley Running Away From Capitol Mob Sparks Mockery and Memes

A video of Donald Trump admitting he did not "want to say the election was over" was the real bombshell footage shown at the latest January 6 committee hearing, but another clip captured the public's attention on Thursday: one showing Sen. Josh Hawley fleeing the Capitol only hours after he cheered on the pro-Trump mob.

On January 6, 2021, Hawley was pictured backing the crowd preparing to storm the Capitol, raising his fist at them in solidarity and support.

The image, which went viral, became a form of political currency for the Republican senator among Trump supporters and an awkward testimony of his role in the riots, which he repeatedly denied inciting.

The video caused many of those in the committee room —reporters, congressional aides, security staff, and visitors— to burst into laughter.
