The View had a blast on Friday morning as the co-hosts brutally mocked the embarrassing Josh Hawley video from the latest January 6 hearing. In the now-viral clip, the Missouri senator can be seen booking it out of the main Capitol building shortly after riling up the MAGA crowd with a fist pump.
“What an invertebrate that man is,” Navarro said. “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.”

Navarro then criticized Hawley for attempting to capitalize on his latest infamy by promoting his merchandise — including a mug with the image of him raising his fist from that morning.
“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!” Navarro said.
While the video of Hawley continues to haunt him with no signs of slowing down, nothing can beat its initial reveal during Thursday night’s hearing. Despite the serious nature of the proceedings, the audience burst out laughing when Hawley was shown fleeing the Capitol building after brazenly doing a fist pump upon his arrival. There was clearly a stark difference between the two moments, and one could argue that Hawley’s hasty exit suggests he knew what was in store for the day.
