Johnson, a famous Trump sycophant, is usually a goal of mockery. When discussing the senator’s makes an attempt to downplay the Trump riots, Joe Scarborough not too long ago said:
“This can be a mob that simply could have simply killed Ron Johnson or any member of the Home or Senate they noticed that day. So I simply surprise, as there are Republicans feverishly making an attempt to reframe the political social gathering, Mika, I’m simply questioning if Mitch McConnell’s imaginative and prescient of the Republican Get together shifting ahead is Ron Johnson’s imaginative and prescient of the Republican Get together? As a result of you should use Mitch McConnell’s personal phrases towards Ron Johnson and show that Ron Johnson is mendacity to the folks of America. Ron Johnson is just not worthy to be a United States senator.”
