Poor Maria Bartiromo. The Fox Business and Fox News character complained Tuesday about dropping followers on Twitter after her visitor, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), referred to as for conservatives to not “bow down to the woke mob.” (Watch the clip under.)
Hawley, a diehard fan of ex-President Donald Trump, has been harping about an imagined liberal plot to silence Republicans since a mob of Trump-supporting extremists ― stirred partially by Hawley himself ― attacked the U.S. Capitol. He misplaced a e book contract due to his election denialism and wrote in a New York Post op-ed that he was being muzzled.
Bartiromo ― who had a number of tweets flagged by Twitter for “misleading” content material in regards to the election, Newsweek noted ― commiserated with Hawley in a section on Fox News titled “The Left’s Censorship Obsession.”
“Yeah, I had ― right around the election ― 1 million followers on Twitter,” Bartiromo stated. “Now I have under 900,000. Literally in a couple of weeks. I don’t know what’s going on there!”
Bartiromo, whose Twitter following stood at 894,000 as of Wednesday morning, was probably feeling the results of the social media firm’s banning of QAnon conspiracy accounts earlier this month for spreading claims that might trigger “offline harm” following the Capitol riot. Trump, who Bartiromo enthusiastically boosted on her exhibits, was banned from Twitter this month for selling violence.
People on Twitter weren’t precisely feeling Bartiromo’s ache.
