When he’s not visiting Moscow for the 4th of July, Ron Johnson, aka “RoJo” is saying stupid things. His latest is a conspiracy theory that the Capitol rioters were not, in fact, Trump supporters but were “left-wing provocateurs” and “fake” Trump supporters. So Al Franken picked up on that, and opined that maybe Ron Johnson is an Antifa plant.
Johnson falsely said that the attackers on the Capitol were “fake Trump protesters.” Thus far the FBI has arrested more than 250 people for participating in the attack on the Capitol, NPR reported but at no point has the FBI been able to find evidence that they were “fake” Trump supporters. All were supporters of former President Donald Trump and had a long history of supporting Trump.
Using the senator’s logic, however, Franken explained, “Ron Johnson is obviously ANTIFA, posing as a nutcase Trump supporter to discredit Trump backers in Congress. It’s working!”
There is something seriously wrong with this country when Ron Johnson is still in the Senate and Al Franken is not.
