Watch Twitter is running with Josh Hawley’s solidarity fist and flee moment during January 6 hearing
Twitter users had a field day with Sen. Josh Hawley’s cameo role during Thursday’s January 6 committee hearing.
The committee showed the now-infamous photo of the Missouri Republican raising his fist in solidarity with protesters gathered outside security gates as he walked across the East Front of the US Capitol from a safe space behind barriers.
Then, they showed a video of Hawley running away after the protesters he helped rile stormed the US Capitol.
That’s when the chicken, Forrest Gump, and running gifs, including some set to music, fired up Twitter. Here are some reactions:

Reminds me of a certain movie line:
Feel like this one might get a lot of replay

Was that Hawley in that video scampering for dear life (with tail between his legs) away from the Mob he had incited outside with his angry fist?

.@HawleyMO's legacy will forever be fleeing from the same mob he helped incite. pic.twitter.com/a3eOv84faA
